Tableau wanted to bring IT decision makers and Data Analysts to two of its most important virtual events of the year: The Virtual IT Summit and the Data Analyst Summit.


  • Tableau leveraged LinkedIn to drive event registrations as the top platform to reach and engage with professional audiences of any seniority and title.
  • Specifically, Tableau used Sponsored Content and Conversation Ads to provide general event awareness to members in the LinkedIn feed, while sharing more information to particular audiences in their LinkedIn inbox.


  • With its multi-format approach, Tableau saw Conversation Ads drive Lead Gen Form Submission Rates over 90% on average.
  • With this success, Tableau plans to expand use of Conversation Ads, leveraging key executives in their organization to promote content, webinars, events, and bottom-of-the-funnel activities for their most important audiences.
