SMX Meet & Greet

Meet & Eat / Birds of a Feather Lunch Tables

Daily, Wednesday, October 24 – Thursday, October 25

At SMX East, All Access pass holders get more out of lunch than just hot, delicious meals. We invite you to “Meet & Eat” with fellow attendees during our extended lunch breaks. SMX always draws a knowledgeable and engaging crowd, so you’re sure to sit with people eager to talk shop and trade ideas.

Prefer a little more structure to your networking? Sign up for one of our “Birds of a Feather” lunch tables for topic-driven discussion about specific areas of search. These tables provide a rich opportunity to continue the conversation with others who share your interests.

We’ll post a schedule and topic list several weeks prior to the conference and you can reserve your spot online.
