Search Insider Summit Day 1 Photos

Intermission Hall

As has become the practice for me while blogging conferences, I take a lot of photos. Not as many as Tamar Weinberg, Barry Schwartz or even David Berkowitz, but quite a few. Out of those photos there are daily favorites that give a visual of what the conference day was like.

Day one of Search Insider Summit here in Park City Utah was fast paced and information rich. The Compete.com opening VIP breakfast warmed things up while snow started to fall out side.

Gord Hotchkiss

Sessions covered included Gord Hotchkiss’ opening remarks and keynote debate with Mike Margolin.

Managing Search in an Uncertain Economy

Those lively presentations were followed by Managing Search in an Uncertain Economy and a breakout, Leveraging Local Search on a National Basis.

Lunch was sponsored by Google / YouTube and while I unfortunately did not blog it, Chris Heuer did.

After lunch I went to my room and worked but others went skiing or snowshoeing.

The evening dinner was sponsored by Omniture featuring a wine/beer reception and 4 course meal. There was plenty of networking and conversation going on and that’s a big part of what makes SIS a special event.
