Keynote Coversation: Gurdeep Singh Pall, Microsoft
Search isn’t about typing keywords into a search box any longer. It’s about speaking what you want, into your phone or even your Xbox. It’s about firing up an app on your phone that understands what you want, based on where you are. During the keynote conversation at SMX Advanced, Gurdeep Singh Pall, corporate vice president for the Information Platform & Experience team at Microsoft, will talk with Search Engine Land founding editor Danny Sullivan about the new directions search is headed, including the evolution of Bing from a web-based search engine to a service that expands across devices.
Convenience is an SMX Advanced Hallmark

Finally, SMX Advanced is intentionally intimate, so you’ll be certain to meet the people you want to meet. This conference sold out each year since it started in 2007. We could relocate and sell more tickets, but the ingredients — the content, networking, and energy — are too precisely formulated to change.

What Participants Have Said About SMX Advanced
Here’s what attendees of previous SMX Advanced said:
SMX Advanced is consistently one of the highest caliber marketing conferences. I never fail to leave with more actionable take-aways than time to implement. Worth its weight in gold!
- Kristy Bolsinger, Ant’s Eye View
I love attending SMX Advanced. The speakers and sessions always leave me with great ideas and invaluable takeaways to bring home. On top of that, the networking opportunities are priceless. Everyone is super approachable, and you never know when just saying “hi” to someone balloon into an amazing Search Marketing conversation. More often then not at Advanced, it does!
- Kiko Correa, Mindbody, Inc.
SMX Advanced is the most informative and accessible search marketing event I’ve attendedever. Danny and team put on an awesome event at a great venue that the SEO community has come to rely on every year. Everything from the speakers to the networking opportunities (even the food!) is top notch.
- Andrew Lipstein, Thomson Reuters
SMX Advanced is what conferences should be. My goal for conferences is to leave every session with at least two “must do” actions, and SMX Advanced doesn’t disappoint. Sessions were both informative and actionable. And the bright, like-minded people you’ll meet at SMX Advanced take the experience from just a conference to an amazing networking event. There’s nearly as much to learn in the evenings as there is during the sessions.
