At SMX, there’s always a search marketing session for you to attend. Because like you, we are obsessed with SEM and PPC. All day. Every day.
You’ll never have to look far for a session on organic search engine optimization. Because we have SEO on the brain. All day. Every day.
SMX is programmed by Search Engine Land, the search marketing industry’s publication of record. That means you get all of the Search Engine Land content you love - live - straight from Search Engine Land’s editors and industry thought leaders.
SMX is the only industry event that’s 100% search marketing. We passionately believe that SEO and SEM deserve the spotlight. You’ll feel welcome and inspired in an environment that celebrates your work.
Attendees. Speakers. Exhibitors. Meet them all at both structured and informal networking events. You’ll make valuable and lasting connections, and walk away with a sense of solidarity with your professional community.
SMX isn’t backed by a software company or digital agency. It isn’t a customer event that dabbles with the occasional search topic. Our unbiased, vendor-agnostic content is designed to do one thing: Help you succeed. That’s our agenda.
Single-track conferences can be a snooze because it’s hard to offer something for everyone. We get that. That’s why we offer multiple tracks that run simultaneously. There will always be a session that will interest you. Less yawning, more learning.
Our session format is carefully constructed to match the topic. Solo sessions offer expert-led deep dives. Panels provide a variety of viewpoints. Roundtables ditch PowerPoints when 100% discussion is more helpful.
We work hard to make SMX Advanced as pleasant as it is productive. You'll enjoy an outstanding venue with breathtaking views, delicious hot lunches, and thoughtful conveniences that make all the difference.
The SMX Expo Hall is the largest gathering of search marketing solution providers, and they’re all there to help you streamline and enhance your operations.
...it is by far the most actionable search conference I've ever been to. I love that speakers assume we already know a lot about SEO (because we do) and the presentations are therefore more specific with more information that we can act on.
