    My wife and I attended an SEO event in Hong Kong way back and that’s when we learned about the New Business Model (NBM). Now, it makes managing our agency a lot easier. Of all these events, the closest one is Singapore. I hope we can attend that one next year. Thanks for the heads up!

    Hi Kristi,
    terrific list. Thanks
    May I suggest to add
    It is the largest conference about PPC & contextual advertising in Southern Europe (and the 2nd largest in Europe).
    It is held in Bologna – Italy (or via online live streaming) on April 14-15, 2016.
    This year we have among the speakers Frederick Vallaeys (ex Google evangelist & founder of Optmyrz), Brad Geddes, Matt Umbro (Hanapin / PPCHero), Martin Roettgerding, Helena clark (Periscopix) and other well known top ppc specialists.
    It is so good that, as you can see yourself, your European branch is sponsoring it! ;-)
