Litmus Live is all about improving email marketing and design.

Do I need to be a Litmus customer to attend?

Nope! While we love to have Litmus customers attend, we welcome anyone that works with email. Litmus Live is not a user conference—which means that sessions are packed with useful, real-world advice applicable to many different platforms and approaches to email creation.

When will Litmus Live tickets go on sale?

How much does it cost to attend Litmus Live?

Each location has a different schedule, which is reflected in the ticket price:

  • Litmus Live London: £500 (£350 early bird)
  • Litmus Live Boston: $1,395 ($995 early bird)
  • Litmus Live San Francisco: $1,195 ($995 early bird)
  • Optional workshops: $695 each

We recommend factoring full-price tickets into your budget, since early bird tickets sell out fast. Rather than being time-bound (i.e. the price valid until a specific date) early bird tickets are quantity-bound, meaning we offer a limited quantity of discounted tickets for each city which are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. In some prior years they've sold out in 10-15 minutes.

Travel and hotel are additional costs. You can expect to see a discounted group rate in the conference room block around $250-$300 per night. Other ways to save on travel are to double up with team members or find less expensive nearby accommodations.

What is included in the ticket price? Are workshops included?

A regular session pass includes access to sessions; meals, snacks, and plenty of caffeinated beverages each day; plus admission to evening events. Workshops are not included in the ticket price. Optional workshop add-on tickets will be available for $695 each.

Workshop passes also include lunch and the workshop(s) you selected.

Do you have free, discounted, or non-profit tickets?

Litmus Live is a bit different from typical conferences—in lieu of traditional sponsorships to fund the events, we finance our effort through ticket proceeds. Planning the conference without sponsors allows us to curate pitch-free content, but also means we're unable to provide complimentary or discounted tickets. However, we do provide a 10% discount to groups of 3 or more from the same company who register together.

There will be multiple opportunities to snag discounted or free tickets: Sign up to receive Litmus Live emails to learn more.

Are group discounts available?

Yes. We offer a 10% discount to groups of 3 or more from the same company who register together.

Do I need to print a ticket?

Nope but you absolutely can if you like the feel of printed tickets (some of us do, too). Just bring your ID with you to the registration desk in the morning on the day of the conference to check in.

When should I arrive?

You should plan to arrive during the registration times listed on your city’s agenda (London, Boston, San Francisco). You will need to be checked in prior to attending any sessions. We recommend getting there earlier during registration times to avoid longer registration lines. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to connect with other attendees before the conference kicks off.

Can I stash my luggage at the conference?

Unfortunately, we do not have extra space available for attendee luggage or other possessions. If you need to store your luggage during the conference, please do so through your hotel.

Do you have sponsors at Litmus Live? What is patronage?
