"Four and a half days of search, all search and nothing but search. SES is the biggest and oldest conference in this space. Seasoned search maven or hopeful newbie, you'll find speakers who share expertise, new research, horizon's edge views and knuckles-in-the code tactics. Conference chair Kevin Ryan -- himself no stranger to search marketing for companies big and small -- has lined up thinkers, doers and visionaries who will send you home with a bagful of fresh approaches. Large companies or small will find search expertise. Search marketing professionals, your next client will be here. Vendors, there will be customers seeking just what you have. Everything you need to keep up with the unquestioned velocity of change in this medium is on this conference agenda."

—Anne Kennedy, Managing Partner, Beyond Ink, Member of SES Advisory Board

Don't Take Our Word for It!

Join the thousands of satisfied Search Engine Strategies participants who have attended SES world wide since 1998. Here is what some recent attendees have said about SES:

"SES San Jose really lived up to its name -- Search Engine Strategies. The Day 1 content got us out of the weeds and focused on high-level strategic concepts. Day 2 and beyond activated the more tactical and practical discussion that's also crucial for those looking to master all things search."
Aaron Goldman, VP, Marketing & Strategic Partnerships, Resolution Media

"As CMO of Marin Software, purveyor of the leading enterprise-class paid search management application, I'm always looking for efficient and effective ways to reach our audience of search agencies and large-scale advertisers. To help us accomplish that, Incisive Media has assembled an impressive array of properties and programs such as the Search Engine Strategies Conference & Expo, and Search Engine Watch Webcasts. We exhibit, present, sponsor and advertise at these venues and it's this sort of integrated marketing that delivers powerful results and best bang for the buck."
Marc Barach, CMO, Marin Software

"Search engine marketing firm iProspect works primarily with clients who have large or complex websites, many of whom are Fortune-level companies. As a sponsor and exhibitor this past year at SES New York, we found that the number of companies suitable for our services increased by over 20% from last year. SES is a terrific event series, one that we plan to be at in New York, San Jose and Chicago."
Bill Muller, VP of Marketing, iProspect

"As a speaker and Premier Sponsor of Search Engine Strategies for many years, Bruce Clay has always found the information, networking, and vendor interaction to be fantastic, clearly contributing to our business and always justifying our participation."
Bruce Clay, President, Bruce Clay, Inc.

"SES is always a well run show from start to finish. Well organized, great seminar sessions and good prospects."
Christa Roettele, Director, External Communications, TrueLocal

"Hitwise has been a sponsor at the Search Engines Strategies shows in the US and the UK for several years. SES ranks among those shows from which we see the greatest return. The event provides us great brand visibility within the search marketing community as well as quality leads. It also is a great place for us to connect with our clients, many of whom come to this event for the networking as well as the extensive educational program."
Ginny Redgate, VP Marketing, Hitwise
