SMX really shines when it comes to providing a one-on-one opportunity to talk with the experts. The planned evening social events were also fun and productive. They helped me develop connections beyond a brief meeting which will be key to fostering actual business relationships.

I found the keynote presentations to be interesting and innovative.
– Adrienne Frankenfield, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Online
…the opportunity to learn and discuss SEO with new friends and faces, plus the opportunity to meet industry experts. The birds of a feather tables are excellent.

I learned a bunch. And I enjoyed the honest interviews. It was not all nicey-nicey.

Great information and great people who are dealing with many of the same issues…refreshing!
– Andrew Brewster, BV Consulting
Great conference. I would definitely attend again. There were several instances where I had a very tough time deciding which session to go to.
– Jack Ogilvie, Radiant Systems
I left SMX feeling refreshed, for lack of a better term. Not refreshed physcially, because I was pretty exhausted, but refreshed in terms of my attitude towards SEO. I felt much more engaged with the SEO community as a whole, and all of the things that are currently going on in the world of search. I definitely look forward to attending another conference like this, and would encourage you to do the same if possible.
– John Vantine, Wpromote

My favorite thing about the show is… the fact that you learn what you aren’t doing and why you should be doing it! As a takeaway I had 5+ things that we have now started to implement to get our clients greater reach and visibility.
– Aimee Smith, Moore and Scarry Advertising
I found the speakers and their content to be both relevant and informative. I really enjoyed this conference and felt I learned a lot that I am able to use in my day-to-day work.

SMX is a great digital marketing conference, covering all aspects of the digital space – despite focusing in on how to rank competitively in Search Engines. I recommend it to any one serious about marketing – especially on the web.

The amount of information and actionable ideas that you take away is outstanding and will hopefully make our company that much better.

SMX Advanced is “the” conference of the year I suggest when I am asked the question: “What is the one conference you recommend I go to?” and I am ALWAYS asked the question. The networking opportunities, quality of speakers and information given is second to none.

SMX Advanced was extremely organized, held in a great venue and was jam packed with valuable takeaways and networking opportunities for both seasoned SEOs and newbies!
