Search marketing continues to be the biggest and most powerful form of digital marketing. Search Marketing Expo (SMX®) has been the leading conference for SEO and SEM professionals since 2007, helping thousands of marketing practitioners from across the world succeed with their search marketing endeavors. Our dedicated SEO, SEM, and Retail tracks offer proven tactics to effectively attain your search and e-commerce goals.
You’ll leave SMX armed with fresh tactics, tips, and techniques that can be immediately implemented to drive traffic, convert visitors, and grow your business.
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.
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.
Fluent in search marketing? SMX speaks your language, with no dumbing-down. We offer many sessions that tackle SEO and SEM at a high-level to suit your speed.
New to the industry? The SMX Boot Camp gets you up-to-speed on SEO and SEM, prepping you for a productive conference experience.
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. Clinics address your specific, case-by-case needs.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
SMX West is hands down one of the best conferences for SEO and SEM managers due to the breadth of topics covered and excellent speakers talking about what's happening *RIGHT NOW*. What really helps me justify attending this conference is the networking opportunities with the speakers and attendees. Each year I go to the conference with questions and I'll meet multiple individuals who can help answer my question as well as provide a fresh perspective so that I can solve the issues at hand and have new tactics and ideas to take into my next fiscal year planning sessions.
