Directional Cue

Conversion Jam is about you selling more online. We bring handpicked, recognized speakers – all listed among the best in the world! We want YOU to master THEIR methods and learn web psychology.

It became the world's largest CRO event last year, so we though "Why not bring it over to Norway?" A must-attend for UX, Marketing and Online Managers.

This is why you should attend CJAM:

  • Master the future of CRO

    Growth, retention, machine learning... There's no yada yada inspiration to it - pure preparation.

  • 2400 people over 6 years

    If you don't learn from the best, your competitors will for sure. They'll come and they'll prepare.

  • We sold out each year in Sthlm

    The bad news - the venue has a limit.

  • No sales talk on stage

    We have sponsors, but not on stage. What? Yes. Really? Yes.
