SearchFest presents multiple informative learning tracks, workshops, and panel sessions designed to provide direct insight into the most up-to-date strategies and technological advancements in online search marketing and social marketing. Industry experts and thought leaders from around the country deliver in-depth presentations ranging from basic SEM and social media fundamentals to specific advanced techniques.
Why Attend SearchFest?
The biggest names in almost every niche of search and social media marketing will be at SearchFest to present on everything from tried-and-true best practice fundamentals in technical and on-page SEO to bleeding edge techniques in mobile search, social media, and link building.
SEMpdx is proud of the reputation that SearchFest has developed not only for the consistent quality of the presentations and speakers, but the high level of discussion among attendees during breaks and networking opportunities. Meet some of the most passionate search marketers in the country, share techniques, and expand your referral and client networks. Join us for a drink immediately following the Closing Keynote, with the Official SearchFest After Party, sponsored by Moz, at 6:00pm at Punchbowl Social, a nearby venue featuring bowling, karaoke, darts, and more.
We’ve taken attendee feedback from previous years’ events into account about expanding the length of each session and minimizing transition time between rooms. Each session now features a minimum of 15 minutes of question-and-answer time so you can help move the panel to discuss the topics that YOU want to hear about.
One-Quarter of the Price of other Top Conferences
As a not-for-profit organization, SEMpdx is all about reaching as many marketers and business owners as we can, and for that reason we’re able to keep SearchFest ticket prices low. Even if you’re coming into Portland from out of town, you can almost certainly book a round-trip flight to Portland, two-night hotel stay, AND attend SearchFest just for the price of admission to one of the other leading SEO conferences. While our one-day event does not allow for the full breadth of multi-day events like SES and SMX, it’s often the perfect fit for the budgets and timelines of small companies.
