HubSpot Events - What Are They And Where Can You Find A HUG In The UK?
HubSpot is an all-in-one marketing, sales and service platform built to help you grow your business. But you already know that, don’t you? What you might not know is that they also host a series of events worldwide to help existing HubSpot users get more from the tool.
Not only do they host INBOUND (their flagship conference held in Boston, MA which welcomes over 21,000 marketers every year), they also facilitate HubSpot User Groups all around the world.
What Is A HubSpot User Group?
HubSpot User Groups are free, in-person meetups which are typically held once a quarter and are open to all HubSpot users. The purpose of a HubSpot User Group (HUG) is to educate, inform and inspire HubSpot users with all things related to strategy and software.
The events are usually hosted by a HubSpot Partner Agency and sessions are often ran by experts who work within the HubSpot team. Attendees get access to free advice and support, enabling them to leverage the events to grow their business better.

We couldn’t start this list without a shout out to the Bristol HubSpot User Group run by yours truly. The events are hosted once a quarter at the Waterfront Meeting Rooms in Central Bristol and they gather around 40 HubSpot users to share knowledge and ideas. Previous topics include HubSpot content strategy, chatbots, how to use video in sales, and more!
The next Bristol HubSpot User Group is on Tuesday 19th November - you can book on to the free event by registering here.
Central London HubSpot User Group

Hosted by Whitehat SEO, the London HUG is the “world’s largest HubSpot User Group”. They get speakers flying in from the US to discuss all sorts of topics from the Inbound Flywheel including things like ‘Setting Up For Success With HubSpot Sales Hub’ and ‘Implementing Sales & Marketing Strategies In Large Corporate Clients’.
Oxford HubSpot User Group

The folks over at Babelquest have been running the Oxford HUG for a few years now. In fact, I went to one of their events back in 2017 and really enjoyed it. They’re a friendly bunch who love sharing the HubSpot gospel. Their 2019 events have covered a ‘Spin Your Flywheel’ series which educates attendees on all the different aspects of the inbound flywheel model.
