SMX East - New York

Want to succeed in search marketing? Join us in New York City for the world’s largest search engine marketing conference, expo and workshops! Attend SMX East for a deep dive into SEO and SEM tactics that tackle the search marketing challenges you’re confronting and inspire you with new ideas.

SMX is the only conference series entirely devoted to search marketing and how search fits in the marketing mix. It provides a welcoming environment for digital marketers and a “home” for dedicated search marketers, a place where everyone “gets it.”

SMX is not a marketing event or user meeting produced by a vendor or digital agency. SMX is programmed by the team at Search Engine Land, the publication of record for search marketers. So rest assured, what you’ll learn is what you need to know to stay ahead of the curve.

Search marketing is the biggest area of digital marketing. You’ll make the smartest investment decision by attending SMX East!
