SES has been a great show for Symantec (Former VeriSign). With a great team to support us and great sponsorship opportunities, SES hosts a show that allows us to meet exceptional people. We look forward to future SES events and hope to see all of you there!
—Kristin Crist, Events Marketing Manager, Symantec

SES Chicago was a blue-chip experience. Being my first 'search' conference, I was blown away at having personal access to the world's top search talent. At the end of day 1, I had decided to attend the next SES event, wherever it might be. I left Chicago SES with a valuable list of contacts, a new insight and approach toward SEO, and a notebook full of tricks that have shown immediate returns for our law firm. Kudos to the staff for assembling such a power-packed display of the search industry's brightest stars.
—Allen Walker, Web Marketing Consultant, Keller & Keller

The material I learned from just a single session alone made it worth attending the conference.
