Jeremiah Owyang posted recently asking his readers what conferences they would be attending in the coming months and I thought that would be a great question for Online Marketing Blog readers as well.
Over the past 3 years we’ve been focused on search marketing conferences but have expanded more into direct marketing, interactive and PR. We’ll continue that trend the rest of this year but with more conferences outside of search as our online marketing agency evolves.
Conferences that I’m attending in the coming months include:
- May: ACCM in Florida
- Jun: PRSA Digital Impact in NYC
- Jul: ad:tech in Chicago
- Aug: Search Engine Strategies in San Jose
- Sep: Blogworld Expo in Las Vegas
- Oct: DMA08 in Vegas
- Oct PRSA International Conference in Detroit
- Nov: Pubcon in Vegas
Personally, I try my best to limit conferences to one per month and those I am speaking at. The above list is not comprehensive for the TopRank team of course, since we do typically blog most SES and SMX conferences. We’ll definitely be at SMX Advanced this year as well as SES Chicago in December. It just won’t be me that attends. There are several other events that I may attend or speak at, I’m just not confirmed that far out.
There are many other great conferences with programming that touches on search, social, interactive and PR the rest of this year. What conferences are you attending in the coming months and remainder of 2008?
