SEMpdx is proud of the reputation that Engage Conference (formerly known as 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.
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.
All registered attendees will receive complimentary session videos following the event. You will be able to stream the videos to your various devices unlimited times. Each video will be packaged with the presenter’s slide deck (if available). Downloads of each session video are also available.
One-Third 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 Engage Conference 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 Engage Conference 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.
