Schedule for SMX East 2008

It’s that time again. Bruce Clay, Inc. is gearing up for SMX East. That means people to greet in the expo hall and presentations to liveblog from the session rooms. Oh, and parties. Let’s not forget the parties.

Plus, it’s not too late to register for the SEOToolSet Training course, being presented for the first time on the East Coast. Bruce will be teaching our time-tested corporate SEO methodology on October 9-10 at The Westin New York at Times Square. That means you can extend your search marketing education to five full days of expertise straight from the brains of some of the most successful marketers in the industry. Sign up for both the conference and the training course and use the promo code “smx20bci” for a value you just can’t beat.

Somewhere in between attending and liveblogging those sessions, I’ll be recording interviews for SEM Synergy. Broadcast straight from the expo room floor, tune in to WebmasterRadio.FM Wednesday at noon PST to hear some one-on-one from a few of the speakers. In fact, let’s make this fun. If you read anything in the liveblog coverage that you want to know more about, post a comment in the blog saying so. Once I know what you want to hear more of, I’ll do my best to track down the speaker and see if he or she will answer some of your questions on the air. This shall be a grand experiment! Muwahahahaha! [V, don’t scare the nice people. –Susan]


Back to some more of the certainties of SMX East. If during the day you can track my location like clockwork, my evening whereabouts will be just as predictable. I’ll be with my SEO ladies on the dance floor at the networking events! And where better to cut a rug than Tuesday night’s WebmasterRadio.FM Search Bash! As an employee of a party sponsor, I’ve been authorized to guarantee a good time. Judging from the last bash, I can’t imagine next week’s will be anything less than crunktastic. [What’s a crunk? –Susan]

I guess I’m still getting used to having the authority to approve blog comments. This was a good reminder for me to be more discerning in the future. Thanks for the heads up. :)

The comment above made me laugh. Any SEO expert knows the proper commenting etiquette and that post defied them all.
What an idiot. :)
Anyways, have fun at SMX East and would love to get the coverage you’re promising on the event as I’m unable to make it!
