SES returns to San Jose Aug 18-22

Join us for our 10th Annual SES event this August in San Jose, California, home to the largest concentration of successful internet and high-tech companies in the world.

SES San Jose affords delegates the largest learning and networking opportunity of the year, as the 70+ sessions (80% of which are new to the agenda) will cover everything that is search-related, and the numerous networking parties are back, including the famed Google Dance and Search Bash.

Fellow marketers, webmasters, executive decision makers, including first timers and SES Alumni, will converge to learn how to maximize their business's Search Engine Marketing (SEM) opportunities, including Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Paid Search advertising, in addition to staying informed of the latest industry, tools, and algorithm developments and solutions. This is the one event of the year you do not want to miss.

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
