SMX Advanced is for experienced search marketers. Sessions are fast-paced, interactive and don’t attempt to explain basic concepts. There will be tracks dedicated to advanced search engine optimization (SEO) and paid search advertising (PPC), mobile search, and a “hardcore” track focusing on social media, analytics and local search.
Advanced is conducted in an intimate setting that promotes delegate interaction. Networking is a principal benefit of attending SMX Advanced.
Workshops are in-depth sessions facilitated by industry experts. All workshops will be conducted Tuesday, June 10 at the Bell Harbor. See descriptions of the workshops here.
SMX Advanced runs June 2-3, 2015 (opening Meet & Greet reception is on the evening of June 1). Post-conference Workshops take place on June 4.
