Search Engine Journal kicks off its conference series, SEJ Summit 2016 with its first conference on April 13th at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel, which I will have the pleasure of hosting.
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 such as SEO, social media, content marketing, paid search, UX, CRO, Google Search, and soft skills such as cross-functional influencing and team management.
Each event is composed of eight sessions or more, four moderated Q&A panels, and over three hours of high-quality networking opportunities. A cocktail reception, lunch, and snack breaks are also included.
SEJ Summit presentations contain no pitches, no product demos, and no sponsored content. Just actionable information designed with search & digital marketers in mind.
