Traction Conference, which aims to help startups learn actionable ways to accelerate their businesses, is just a few weeks away and its tickets are almost sold out.

This year’s conference, taking place on May 31st and June 1st, is bringing in names like Aatif Awan, head of growth at LinkedIn; Jyoti Bansal, founder of AppDynamics; Sarah Bird, CEO at Moz; Michael Pryor, CEO of Trello; Elena Verma, SVP at SurveyMonkey; and Uber VP of product and growth Ed Baker.

Hosted by Launch Academy and Boast Capital, Traction Conf aims to bring together founders and growth leaders from tech companies to participate in fireside chats. Attendees will have the chance to network with tech industry experts and learn how to get, keep, and grow customers and users at scale.

“Traction has quickly become a conduit for Canadian companies to the top performers from Silicon Valley,” said Ray Walia, CEO of Launch Academy. “Our lineup of speakers consistently has featured not only C-Suite leaders from companies with valuations of a billion plus, but growth experts from those firms as well. All sharing tips and techniques they themselves have proven successful in not only acquiring users, but also retention and monetization.”

In the past, Traction Conf has attracted execs like former Slack CMO Bill Macaitis, and leaders from Y Combinator and Hootsuite.
