Why Attend SearchFest?

Top Speakers

Learn everything from tried-and-true best practice fundamentals in technical and on-page SEO to bleeding edge techniques in mobile search, social media, and linkbuilding from the biggest names in almost every niche of search and social media marketing. We have speakers from top brands like Intel, REI, and the New York Times Company, and leading agencies like SEOmoz and Performics.

And to top it off, absorb keynotes from two of the premier thought leaders in the industry–Chris Sherman and Chris Boggs–as they give you their perspectives on where the search engines are headed and how they see our space evolving.

Intimate Networking

SEMpdx is proud of the reputation that SearchFest has developed not only for the consistent quality of the presentations made by its 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.

Extensive Q&A

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 that 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.

Join SEMpdx and Save Even More

Save up to $100 on your SearchFest ticket when you purchase an Individual membership to SEMpdx for only $125 per year. As a member, you’ll continue to get deep discounts on all of our monthly events throughout the year, access to special members-only events, and all of these other great benefits.

Group discounts available for packages of five tickets or more — please email searchfest@sempdx.org for more details.
