Event Details

Engage Conference (formerly known as SearchFest)

Portland’s Premier Digital Marketing Conference - Now 2-days!

Engage Conference is a two-day digital marketing conference, presenting multiple informative learning tracks and panel sessions designed to provide expert insight into the latest strategies and technological advancements in digital marketing, including social media, content, UX/design, creative, advertising, SEO and paid media.

Our devout attendees and speakers will tell you that Engage is “one of the most important regional thought leadership events in the country” and that each year’s agenda is “forward-thinking and relevant”. In addition to the world class programming, we place an emphasis on creating opportunities for speakers and attendees to meet, ask questions, and make important connections. We do all this for a just a fraction of what you would spend elsewhere.

Get ready for two days of learning, featuring 2 tracks offering 4 sessions each -- that's 16 session to choose from throughout the conference. Most of the sessions have a team of two presenters, but some sessions will feature a single speaker going in depth on a subject. Plus, begin and end the day with keynote presentations from two of the search marketing and social media industry leading experts.

Intimate Networking

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 marketers in the country, share techniques, and expand your referral and client base.

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.

Session Videos

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.
