Pursuit: Running from September to November 2018, Pursuit will travel across four different continents, and set up shop in five cities.

Previously known as A Day With Shopify, Pursuit is an international conference series that aims to help you build personal relationships with other Shopify Partners, learn valuable business lessons, and share best practices with the wider partner community.

Over the past two years, we listened to everything you loved about A Day with Shopify, and discovered that most partners attend these events in the pursuit of improvement.

So whether you’re in the pursuit of growth or a deeper connection with the community, this conference series has evolved to bring you the most impactful aspects of its former self—collaboration, peer learning, and actionable takeaways.

Running from September to November 2018, Pursuit will travel across four different continents and set up shop in five cities. Not only will you get a full day of presentations, office hours, and networking opportunities, but we’ve also added an evening meetup and limited seating master class, to round out your high impact learning experience.

Why attend Pursuit?

Whether you’re a freelancer, agency, or app developer, Pursuit is a place to grow, learn, and connect.

Grow together, faster
