Search Marketing Expo East

Search Marketing Expo East

The Search Marketing Expo (or just SMX) is the global search engine marketing conference series from Third Door Media, the company behind the Search Engine Land and Marketing Land news sites, and the Digital Marketing Depot webcast series.

SMX is programmed by some of the sharpest minds in search marketing. Together, Search Engine Land editor-in-chief Danny Sullivan and executive editor Chris Sherman have covered the topics, interviewed the luminaries, and educated a generation of search marketers.

Attend SMX East for a deep dive into SEO and SEM tactics that tackle the search marketing challenges you’re confronting and inspire you with new ideas. SMX is a conference series entirely devoted to search marketing and how search fits into the marketing mix. It provides a welcoming environment for digital marketers and a “home” for dedicated search marketers, a place where everyone “gets it.”

SMX is not a marketing event or user meeting produced by a vendor or digital agency. SMX is programmed by the team at Search Engine Land, the publication of record for search marketers.

“My favorite thing about the show is… the fact that you learn what you aren’t doing and why you should be doing it! As a takeaway, I had 5+ things that we have now started to implement to get our clients greater reach and visibility.”
Aimee Smith, Moore and Scarry Advertising

“This was my 3rd SMX conference but the first time at SMX East. The value of the conference is in its comprehensive array of speakers that covered the important industry topics. I returned to the office with a valuable collection of contacts, ideas, and an actionable to-do list inspired by tome of the issues discussed. I look forward to attending next year’s conference.”
Igal Stolpner, Head of SEO at
