What Past Delegates Have Said:

The International Search Summit is a must-attend event for anyone involved in International search. The mix of topics covered was perfect, and the number of countries represented by the presenters was impressive. I would recommend this to anyone attending SMX in the future who is looking to improve their knowledge in the International search space.

Alan Suchan – Fathom

I very much enjoyed the ISS! Actually talking to people who know what you’re talking about when you mention hreflang-tags and geo-targeting was great. There was a sense of mutual interests that you don’t often come across in your daily work

Arne van Elk – RNW

I came to the International Search Summit with an international SEO problem. I left with a solution

Dan McCourt, Ecommerce Manager – SouthCo

The International Search Summit exceeded my expectations. I was pleasantly surprised by the high professionalism of the speakers as well as the friendly atmosphere. This event has proven that the most valuable information doesn’t have to be presented by ‘Internet celebrities’. It was a pleasure for me to meet real thought leaders in multilingual search marketing

Martin Kura – Consultant

…the International Search Summit was worth every minute of my time. I had
full confidence in the expertise of all the speakers since they had intimate working knowledge with both small and large sites, and provided great insights into the best tactics & strategies for both. I’ve been doing SEO since 2001, but I haven’t dabbled much in the International space; so as an SEO veteran but an Int’l newbie, I was amazed at how some of the smallest considerations can have some big effects. I’d highly recommend the International Search Summit to anyone who is venturing into the International space or wants to improve their current search engine standings.

Eric Wu, Director of SEO – eHow.com

I was very impressed with the presentations. Unlike other conferences I have been to, the vast majority of the content was new and actionable. I learned a lot.

Danny Dover, Lead SEO – SEOmoz.org

The Summit was very informative, provided me with up-to-date knowledge and market trends through some excellent presentations and expanded my network of business contacts”.

Millen Shah – businesslink.gov.uk

The International Search Summit was a very well organised event, presenting interesting angles and views on issues and developments in Global Search. It discussed best practices for targeting multiple markets online and gave valuable insight into specific key markets. There was also the opportunity to network.

Michal Stefan – I & Q Group.

The International Search Summit was an amazing day. I picked up lots of useful information, had some very interesting conversations and the food was really nice (a rarity at conferences!)”.
