Our aim has always been to highlight that the city by the sea is a hotbed for SEO talent, and provide a ‘Brightonian’ spin on the search marketing conference and networking event.
It’s a chance for SEOs to meet, learn and do their job a little better.
This isn’t an event that just tells you ‘content is king’ or ‘don’t translate your site, localise it’ and all those other conference cliches. It’s hands on. It’s detailed and it’s practical.
BrightonSEO started out, like many a fine idea, as conversation in a pub. Kelvin Newman and some other SEOs were talking: “Why don’t we get a few people together who work in SEO, arrange a couple of talks and give people who work in the industry a chance to meet-up”. The idea was to share ideas and chat about all the interesting stuff that we can’t really talk about with anyone outside the industry for fear of them falling asleep.
Word got out and more people showed up than he expected.
So, next time he booked a larger room… again, more and more people showed up.
From that room above a pub the event now regularly sells out its 3500 free tickets in minutes.
SEOs - from beginners and generalists through to specialists and senior people
