After a successful run of the SEJ Summit conference series held in Santa Monica and Chicago, Search Engine Journal is ready to close the series with the last conference of the year happening on November 2nd at The TimesCenter!
SEJ Summit 2016: “A Day of Keynotes” is an intimate search marketing conference that features a full day of curated, keynote-style presentations by top marketing thought leaders. A wide array of search topics will be covered, including SEO, Google algorithm updates, AMP, Rankbrain, local search, content marketing, and community and influencer engagement.
Each event is composed of eight sessions, four moderated Q&A panels, and over three hours of high-quality networking opportunities. A cocktail reception, lunch, and snack breaks are included. For SEJ Summit New York, we have decided to offer not eight, but eleven sessions of thought-provoking topics presented by the leading industry experts.
SEJ Summit presentations contain no pitches, no product demos, and no sponsored content. Just actionable information designed with search and digital marketers in mind.
