Every year our clients, agency partners and our team look forward to SES. It's a unique opportunity to learn from the top search marketers in the US, Canada and abroad and to see what best practices are having an impact. It's a great event and certainly stands alone as the gold standard for search marketing events in the marketplace.
— Jeff Lancaster, Managing Director, Outrider

Why Exhibit?

Targeted Exposure
With the challenging economic environment in full swing, ad dollars are increasingly shifting towards digital marketing platforms. SES Chicago positions vendors in a uniquely targeted forum, facing a staunchly mid-western audience in an intimate and personal setting. Make face-to-face connections!

Qualified Leads
Studies suggest that businesses are turning to their industries' most important events as a critical part of their product sourcing and buying process now more than ever. SES, known as the "Gold Standard" for search marketing events continues to attract decision makers from leading brands in record numbers. Make our attendees your clients.

Brand/Product Visibility
With competitors in many industries cutting back, the value of exhibiting now has a greater return than ever. SES Chicago puts technologists and service providers in front of new prospects every year with more than 80% of our attendees coming to SES for the first time. Steal your competition's clientele before they even meet them.
