  • Agency Meetup: Attend this exclusive meetup designed just for consultants and agency marketers. Join Search Engine Land’s editor-in-chief Ginny Marvin to discuss common obstacles and opportunities, share your own advice, and learn something new.

  • Technical SEO & Developers Meetup: Search Engine Land’s Detlef Johnson will lead a discussion about past, present, and future web development frameworks and technical search engine optimization issues that can affect success or failure. In this unique (and technical!) meetup, you’ll spend time discussing the topics that matter to technical SEOs and developers. 

  • Multi-Location Meetup: In this meetup, Search Engine Land contributing editor Greg Sterling will lead an engaging and collaborative discussion about the issues that matter to multi-location brands including the critical elements of an effective local strategy and the future of Google My Business and local search.

  • Professional Development for SEOs & SEMs Meetup: Join Jessica Bowman for an informal conversation on how to develop your professional skills in such a way that makes you the obvious choice for that next step up the workplace ladder. Discussion topics include how to stand out at meetings as a leader, strategies to earn colleague praise (which makes its way back to your boss), tips for delivering presentations like an executive, getting buy-in for new projects, advice for asking for a promotion or raise, and much more.

Open Perspectives, 7:30pm – 9:30pm

Open Perspectives, created by Microsoft, is focused on exploring principles of diversity, inclusion, and inclusive marketing. It’s the space where we can discuss deep and relevant issues and challenges that we all face with a focus on the experiences of underrepresented groups and their allies. We create an open environment where all are welcome and can contribute to the conversation. This event is hosted at Hudson Mercantile, 500 W 36 Street, New York, NY 10018. (Open to all pass holders.)

Wednesday & Thursday, November 13 & 14
