4 Executives On Why SMX Conferences Are Can't Miss

Here at Search Engine Land, we are outright obsessed with SEO and SEM. (Like really, really obsessed.) The SMX conferences we put on are truly a learning experience for our equally obsessed search industry friends. See what some of our favorite speakers had to say about them!
  1. "The events are your version of school. I think a lot of schools still have not figured out how to teach digital marketing. We're in the era where it's not just high-level concepts or commercials, it's about using tools."
    -Sahil Jain, Co-Founder & CEO, AdStage
  2. "We tend to sit behind our desks and feel like trapped in our own little world and I think opportunities like this where we can come and shake hands with people and see eye to eye...it really makes what we're doing more real."
    -Dustin Stout, CMO, Weal Media
  3. "This is a great place to be. There's a tribe of people here. These people have the same passion we do for being really great at search."
    -Matt VanWagner, President, Find Me Faster
  4. "I absolutely encourage everyone to come to conferences like these, but not only attend the session. Truly make sure you take advantage of networking opportunities and reaching out to speakers."
    -Benu Aggarwal, Founder, Milestone Internet
