Founded in 1999, SES has become the leading search and social marketing event in the industry. SES is programmed by leading practitioners and industry thought leaders who form the SES Global Advisory Board. The focus is 100% on education with a large sprinkling of networking sessions and events for attendees to share knowledge and experience as well as develop new business relationships.
Understanding, Communication, Reasoning, Learning, Retaining, Planning, and Problem Solving
There's a thriving community spirit at the heart of SES no matter what level of experience you have. Whether coming in new or with three or more years experience, you'll be in the right place at the right time - every time!
We carefully craft each individual agenda for every SES Conference & Expo at home and abroad to reflect the most current digital marketing moment in time. The very latest strategies and tactics are explained and demonstrated using real time, real life examples. The environment is carefully designed to encourage knowledge-sharing activities between the speakers and the attendees.
SEO, Paid Search, Social Media, Display, Email, Analytics and Business Management
We take the entire digital marketing spectrum and wrap an agenda around it aimed at helping marketers do their jobs better and stimulate business growth. The industry is changing and practitioners need to become multi-skilled to manage the convergence of search, social, display, email and the analytics and optimization techniques that go with it.
It's marketing that powers the growth of your business. Whether it's organic growth in current markets or whether you're setting your sights on international goals. Remember that many of our speakers and contributors are not just top flight practitioners, they're also successful business owners. That's why we also include best practice sessions on running your business in the digital marketing economy.
Vendors, Agencies, Tools, Services and Consultants
It's a conference - it's an expo! And the expo hall features the leading brands that help to power the entire industry. If you want to know what the latest tools, techniques, methods, systems and processes are to make your web presence huge and profitable, take them all for a test drive in the expo hall.
Up to one hundred exhibitors (and frequently more) pack the expo hall, creating a colorful and vibrant atmosphere buzzing with new technologies and ideas. Be the first to discover what's new and then impress the hell out of your boss by explaining how you have a new, secret marketing armory to trample over the competition.
Cocktails, Parties, Dinners, Bars, Breakfasts
