Search Marketing Expo (SMX) West is fast approaching (starting on February 10, 2009) at the Santa Clara Convetion Center. More than 50 educational sessions and keynotes, networking activities and presentations make this a must-attend event if you're aiming for Web success.
While many companies are tightening their financial belts, it is increasingly important to attend these type of industry events to ensure your success in these often difficult times -- and when the economy turns around. Even if you don't opt for the All Access Pass, prospective attendees could also opt for an Expo Pass, which enables them to participate in more than 30 presentations, or the Networking Pass, which offers an opportunity to network with individuals from more than 600 companies.
I've outlined a few sessions I think everyone should attend at SMX, from first timers to seasoned Internet professionals.
