About BDI

Business Development Institute (BDI) is an award-winning ABM event marketing agency specializing in producing data-driven prospect roadshows called Accelerate Events, both in person and virtually. We brand our clients as thought leaders in their industry while simultaneously generating qualified leads that result in new business. As a turnkey partner, BDI handles all of the heavy lifting from conception of the program content, to recruiting our client’s qualified buyers, to executing the event day of.

Our Story

In our early years, BDI produced both content and networking events in New York City.

We evolved into full-on conference production, where for about 10 years, our focus was on the intersection of technology and business. We were proud to put together one of the first-ever conferences on social media’s impact on business, where speakers including Reid Hoffman (Founder of LinkedIn) could only begin to project the future.

In 2014, we harnessed years of experience connecting and educating professionals to reinvent ourselves as a marketing agency, producing client acquisition roadshows for B2B companies, which we call “Accelerate Events”. These events are the culmination of our extensive background creating valuable networking opportunities, relevant and progressive content, and a flawless attendee experience.

In 2019, we produced 150+ AccelerateLive events in 32 cities for over 25 clients. Since March 2020, we have produced 20+ virtual events and counting. Today, BDI is a growing agency serving some of the best & brightest B2B companies.
