There’s no doubt that Subscribed is the #1 event to attend if you’d like your company to thrive in this ever-changing economy.  Even if you’re a Subscribed veteran, there’s always something new to learn...but what’s different at this year’s Subscribed?


This year, we’re focused on giving our customers ample opportunities to learn through our Zuora User Summit with advanced role-based training, one-on-one support, an interactive Connor Group ASC 606 workshop and more.


Here are our 7 reasons why we think you should join us at Subscribed 2017 on June 5-7 in San Francisco:
