Raves for SMX London

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.

Christi Olson – Harry & David

This was by far the best conference I have ever attended. My team has gained learning from SMX that will make us and many other companies millions in the coming years.

Michael Bodnar – A–1 Locksmiths

Amazing amount of knowledge gained in four days, loved the format of asking questions live. Received a tremendous amount of knowledge from some wickedly smart people!

Brandi Kloostra – Service Brands International

I found the keynote presentations to be interesting and innovative.

Adrienne Frankenfield – Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Online

The opportunity to learn and discuss SEO with new friends and faces, plus the opportunity to meet industry experts. The birds of a feather tables are excellent.

Catriona Orosco – Yardi Systems

I learned a bunch. And I enjoyed the honest interviews. It was not all nicey–nicey.

Deb Edgecombe – Creative Converting

You’re up to speed with the industry within one week.

Martin Koel –

There was the incredible buzz of excitement around all the latest thinking in the SEO industry. There were so many good take–aways, one is challenged to take advantage of them all.

Eileen Scharenbroch – Briggs & Stratton Corp.

The sessions easily paid for the investment. Can’t imagine a better way to learn from the best in the business, and network with those serious about staying on top of the SEO – SEM industry.

Frank Barnett – Speech Privacy Systems

Great information and great people who are dealing with many of the same issues… refreshing!

Andrew Brewster – BV Consulting

Great conference. I would definitely attend again. There were several instances where I had a very tough time deciding which session to go to.

Jack Ogilvie – Radiant Systems

I left SMX feeling refreshed, for lack of a better term. Not refreshed physically, because I was pretty exhausted, but refreshed in terms of my attitude towards SEO. I felt much more engaged with the SEO community as a whole, and all of the things that are currently going on in the world of search. I definitely look forward to attending another conference like this, and would encourage you to do the same if possible.

John Vantine – Wpromote

SMX easily paid for itself within the first day based off the knowledge attained in the first few sessions alone. It offers great insight into internet marketing and a unique opportunity to network with influencers throughout the industry. I highly recommend it and will definitely be attending again.

Mike Wilton – Plastic Surgery Studios

As usual, SMX didn’t disappoint. Great speakers, great session topics, and great people. And I even met a few exhibiting vendors that I’d never heard of before and may begin doing business with, which is was an added bonus! I definitely plan on continuing to attend SMX events in the future.

Hugo Guzman – HSN

The level of new information was great. I was challenged with advanced techniques and tips, and learned something new in each session. The connections I made were very valuable as well, as I’m able to collaborate with other experts on future projects. And the opportunity to meet and have lunch with a variety of experts was priceless as well.

Allison Kulage – Bare Knuckle Marketing

SMX is a fantastic opportunity to stay in touch with the industry leaders and keep a pulse on the latest in search marketing. With an industry that changes so often, an event like this is crucial to the success of our business and the ability to keep our edge. This is also a great way to fast track new employees and bring them up to speed with the latest in search marketing trends, tips, and techniques. The addition of the yoga classes before the conference this year was one of my favorite parts! It brought a new level of balance and energy to the conference and enabled me to soak up and retain so much more information!

Allison Chaney – Bare Knuckle Marketing, Inc.

I wish I had a clone with me. So much great content, speakers, and topics. I must say that the best information gained was during the networking events though; the contacts and conversations have been priceless.

Zak Nicola, – Kaseya

I love SMX – it should a priority event for any online marketing company!

Scott Fish, – EngineWorks

This was my first SMX show, and needless to say I’m hooked. I can’t get enough, I have turned into a Search Junkie!!

…the best networking opportunities with leading experts all in one place.

David Reynolds, – Reed Business Information

Thanks so much! It was a fantastic experience — wish I was still there!

Leslie Jones, – White | Thompson

SMX was everything I had heard and more! After the workshop and two days of amazing seminars my brain could not hold any more information. The presenters were all top notch. No posers in this group. If you’re not attending one of the SMX events you are making a huge mistake.

Darren E. Squires, Director of Digital Strategy, – 2ndLAW Media

Thanks for a great conference. Now the hard work starts getting it all into place and not slipping back into the same old in 2 weeks. Easily best Conf I have attended in 15 years doing digital marketing.
