Subscription Summit Subbly

SubSummit is one of the biggest conferences for subscription box entrepreneurs as well as operators of membership businesses and other subscription models focused on recurring revenue.

The Subbly team attended the subscription-focused conference when it was just starting off a few years ago, and even then it was a really great experience — and we know this year’s going to be even better.

(1) the customer service at Subbly is on a whole other level compared to [competitor removed]. (2) Everything you need is included in the platform, making it so much easier and simpler compared to the plugin soup we were dealing with before. (3) Not having to deal with various plugin costs makes Subbly a very economical choice […] (5) our only regret is not switching sooner.” – Aaron W (switched from a competitor in April 2023), read full post.

The Subbly team will be attending again in 2024 to represent Subbly, and we hope to see many familiar and new faces at the Subscription Summit. Keep reading for the full details.

More on the SubSummit Cube awards

The SubSummit Cube awards celebrate the biggest success stories of the subscription industry — almost like the Oscars but for the subscription business world. Awards exist in a variety of categories, including Best Craft/Artisan Subscription, Best Food Subscription, Best Membership Subscription, Best New Subscription, Best Subscription Box, Best Kids Subscription, Best Digital Subscription, and more. 

The crown jewel is The People’s Choice Award — which you can nominate yourself for or be nominated for by someone you know. The higher you score across the judges’ criteria of innovation & creativity, executional intelligence, and customer delight, the higher your chances of winning. 

SubSummit 2023 will run from Wednesday, May 31st to Friday, June 2nd in Dallas, Texas. The conference will be held at the Sheraton, located close to downtown Dallas, but also has everything attendees could need directly in the venue, including dining, entertainment, and fitness facilities.
