State of Search - Dallas

State of Search - Dallas

Join us October 9th & 10th for the annual State of Search 2017, an urban conference like no other. Set in Dallas, TX, a destination in it's own right. Come down, visit the Texas State Fair, and learn from a Who's Who in What's What.

The greatest minds in digital marketing will be sharing their knowledge in an intimate setting presented by the Dallas/Fort Worth Search Engine Marketing Association. The 2016 conference was bigger than ever – and this year’s will build on that success to provide even more actionable intelligence whether you’re in-house, in an agency, or in business for yourself.

We'll be back at historic Gilley’s, a honky tonk and event space founded in 1971 stuffed full of the kind of history only Dallas can offer. That’s right: More space. More speakers. More Texas.

And buckle up for the keynotes, y’all. Dr. Pete of Moz fame, the amazing Bill Hunt, and State of Search favorite Duane Forrester are already confirmed to keynote next year. Also we've already offered some invites to other amazing keynote speakers who lit up the stage in 2016. Yeah. We're impressed, too.

We're looking to celebrate the voices of women and minorities as well, so start warming up your pitches!

No matter where you are in your online marketing journey, from digital newbie to digital veteran, State of Search offers a Texas-sized dose of insight and inspiration from leading marketing pros, including:

  • Extensive programming on SEO, local SEO, PPC, and social media marketing
  • A space outside the dull suburban conference room surrounded by the energy of Dallas’ resurgent south side
  • Networking opportunities each evening that will redefine the conference party
  • Industry experts from all across the country at a fraction of the cost of other national conventions

There’s nothing like State of Search. Leave the neckties and high heels at home and join us for the premiere digital marketing conference in the South.

We’re building out our session schedule for the biggest and best State of Search conference yet, and it’s brimming with digital marketing awesomeness. We’re back at Gilley’s Dallas in 2017, and we have so much more in store for y’all this year! The schedule is bigger, the stages are bigger, and the speakers will blow you away.

State of Search brings you the best speakers with the best digital marketing content on the planet, but that’s not where the story ends. We add a bucketload of the best Texas hospitality, and wrap it all up in the best damn atmosphere on the planet. Yes, we know that pretty much fills the brief for a stellar industry conference, but this is Dallas. Y’all know we are going to go BIG, right?

This year’s speakers include experts from Google, Microsoft and Facebook, to name just a few.
