I found the following blog text from Fred Yee at FoundPages, both firms from Calgary… thought I’d share it with you:
A sign that search engine marketing has matured from a novelty and become a standard, if not vitally important part of marketing in Calgary and Alberta, is that the SEM Canada conference is taking place right here in September!I think it’s the first annual, and part of the reason is Laura Callow is helping to organize it. Laura’s a transplanted Calgarian and she’s bringing her ‘big picture’ skills she has from working with some of the largest companies in the world.
The website is up and running for this event, and early bird registrations are being accepted. It promises to be an excellent event, with speakers and panels that you would normally expect to see in San Jose, New York and London.
You can bet I’ll be there as FoundPages is thrilled to participate in a conference that is geared toward something it has been evangelizing for the past 5 years. It will be great to invite our clients to something that has become important enough to warrant it’s own conference in Calgary.
Visit the website and registration info. As things firm up, and the date gets closer, you can expect we’ll update you more.
Fred Yee, CEO and Founder
Active Conversion will be a topic of a future Techvibes post.
The conference is taking place on September 4th and 5th, 2008. There’s both beginner and intermediate sessions with lots of interaction between panel members and the audience. I think it’s great that Calgary is hosting this event… I’ll be there!
