SAScon 2011 is Quickly Approaching – Start Getting Excited!

The inaugural SAScon event was held way back in April last year, and so it’s pretty exciting to know that this not-for-profit event is going to be coming around again for this year too.  Better still, it’s going to be bigger and better than last year, with more time for networking and more time taking in the line-up of line-ups!

SAScon 2011 is quickly approaching – start getting excited!

Key Facts for SAScon 2011

  • Date: 19th & 20th May 2011
  • Venue: The Hive
  • SAScon tickets are available here!
  • Supported by SEMPO and Manchester Digital
  • It’s a not-for-profit event, by the industry for the industry!

And, if you want to get a sense of how 2010 ran, get the round-up here.

SAscon venue: The Hive

I have to say, of all the venues I’ve been to for corporate events, The Hive must be amongst the coolest, uncorporatey I’ve been to. It oozes creativity, fun and is geared-up for tech-savvy geek-ups, and most importantly has plenty of caffeine on tap for those conference hangovers!  Perfect!!!

Where is SAScon? You might be new to Manchester, or new to The Hive, but it’s really easy to get to.  It’s in the heart of the Northern Quarter, so really close to tons of bars and Manchester Piccadilly – ultra handy for people flying or training in to Manchester.

The Speakers

The speakers last year were truly fantastic.  I’ve already said how uber excellent I thought they are regarding their professional and presentational credentials, and this year we’re expecting to mine into their brilliance some more with an extended agenda over two days.

I was hoping to have a number of speakers to announce as part of this post, but there certainly will be a number announced over the next few days!  So keep your eyes peeled for some major announcements!  😉

SAScon Workshops

As part of our promise to deliver true excellence, and profile some of the finest thinkers in the industry, we have created a day for people and companies to profile this thinking in the form of workshops.  There’s much more to announce on this so keep your eyes peeled for more information!


The headline sponsorship has gone already to Manual Link-builders, with Salford University taking a sponsorship package too.  But knowing that this year is going to be bigger and better again, contact nicky [at] to learn more.  Remember, all support you provide is supporting an industry event, and better yet, if last year’s attendee figures are anything to go by, you’ll be getting promotional visibility across 200 of the UK’s receptive search and social professionals.  Food for thought anyway…

The economics

Being in a recession and all, we are well aware that pennies may be short, and budgets even shorter, so you’ll be over the moon to know that 2 day tickets for SAScon come in at a credit and cornflake crunching £375 for early bird rates!

AND, there’s also a 10% discount available to all readers!  Just quote this discount code when booking: SASBM01
