10 Great Reasons To Attend SMX
Obsessed with SEO and SEM? We are, too. Search Marketing Expo (SMX®) has been the leading conference for SEO and SEM professionals for over a decade, helping thousands of marketing practitioners from across the world succeed with their search marketing endeavors. Our team has one goal: to deliver actionable insights to the marketing community. Keep reading for 10 reasons why you should join us November 13-14 in New York City…
1. Program by Search Engine Land. Chances are you’re a regular reader of Search Engine Land, the search marketing industry publication of record. At SMX East, you’ll get all of the expertise, analysis, and insights straight from Search Engine Land’s editors, contributors, and expert speakers.
2. Invaluable connections. Networking is a cornerstone of the SMX experience. You’ll meet prospective clients, partners — even future talent — and grow your circle of professional contacts at exclusive networking events.
3. 100% white hat. SMX speakers are held to the highest ethical standards. You only learn tactics that are safe for your brand or clients. No get-rich-quick schemes that might land you in hot water with regulators, the search engines, or your boss.
4. Diverse training. Single-track conferences can be a snooze because it’s hard to offer something for everyone. We get that. That’s why we offer several tracks that run simultaneously. Sessions are thoughtfully constructed so the format matches the topic: Solo sessions offer expert-led deep dives. Panels provide a variety of viewpoints. Roundtables ditch PowerPoints when discussion is most valuable. Clinics address your specific, case-by-case needs in a dedicated Q&A environment.
5. Time-saving solutions. From esteemed boutique agencies to martech solutions and search engines, you’ll find products and services that save you time and make you money in the Expo Hall and Solutions Track.
6. Deep dive workshops. Hungry for more? Add a full-day, full throttle workshop to your itinerary.
7. Exceptional amenities. SMX is as pleasant as it is productive. Top shelf amenities are included with your All Access registration – breakfast and hot lunches, built-in recharge and refreshment breaks, and complimentary WiFi, to name a few.
8. Safe environment. We are proud to deliver a welcoming, harassment-free conference experience for everyone – attendees, speakers, sponsors, staff. No exceptions. Period.
9. You’re the priority. 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 program is designed to do one thing: Help you succeed. That’s our only agenda.
10. Validate your attendance. When you come to SMX East, you’ll get an official Certificate of Completion. It’s a great way to verify you attended the event (perfect for travel and registration reimbursements), demonstrate your dedication to continued training, and showcase your involvement in the industry and SMX community.
Coming to a conference is an investment. You put a lot in and deserve to get a lot out. Join us at SMX and walk away armed with fresh tactics, tips, and techniques that can be immediately implemented to drive traffic, convert visitors, and grow your business. You’ll also leave with something else… a true sense of solidarity with your community – something you’ll be hard-pressed to put a price on.
