“SMX East in New York City was a fantastic event! I only wish I could have cloned myself so I could have gone to multiple sessions at the same time. The speakers were top-notch, and the whole atmosphere made it easy to meet lots of other search marketing professionals. Definitely a “can’t miss” conference for anyone who wants to stay on top of the industry.”
- Steve Sasman, Sycara.com
“I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at SMX East. The sessions were insightful, cutting edge, and I definitely left with plenty of tactics I can apply to the search engine marketing campaigns I currently manage. The networking was also phenomenal. Between pre event networking on SMX connect, and all of the networking focused events at the conference, I was able to connect with dozens of other Internet marketers.”
- Mathew Guiver, e-storm international
“SMX East 2012 was massive value for my money. The staggering list of qualified presenters I was exposed to and got to chat with was without compare. This really was “friends in low places”, and by that I mean the the folks presenting were living right at the point of intersect of content, social and search, and it showed. In fact, I think the 90+ presentation decks I have access to from the event alone are worth more to me than the price of the event. Any marketer or services/content supplier in the space who missed SMX blew it. Plus the event staff were friendly and helpful and the food at SMX was by far the best I’ve had at a conference. Attending SMX is a no-brainer indeed. I’ll be back.”
- Greg MacDonald, Carleton University
“SMX East is on my must-attend conference list! It’s a great event with great speakers in a great city. There’s always so much to do and learn and the session agenda leaves even the most advanced marketers choosing which ones they want to attend.”
- Ryan Jones, SapientNitro
“This was my first SMX conference. I was so grateful for the opportunity to be there. I learned so much, met some fascinating and highly accomplished people, and generally had an amazing time. Thank you so much! Can’t wait until the next one!”
