I just signed up for Search Marketing Expo – SMX East 2013 yesterday and I am very excited about it! SMX is a global search engine marketing conference series hosted by Third Door Media. SMX East is hosted annually in NYC (I think). Other SMX locations include Las Vegas, San Jose, Seattle, Stockholm, Milan, Jerusalem, Munich, London, Sydney, and Paris. Maybe I will be able to attend one of these global conferences one day so I can compare how search marketing differs in other countries.
SMX East 2013 features over 50 sessions of SEO, SEM, and social media marketing tactics over multiple tracks that increase web site traffic, boost conversions, and sales. On top of that, they have an expo hall with many great vendors/solutions providers and two theaters with continuous presentations. (I am not getting paid to say this, I swear).
