The Event

Tuesday 16th February 2017 @ Club Workspace Southbank

Welcome to The SEO Social, the new networking event addition to The Digital Showcase’s offering here in the UK! This is our first SEO event and so we will be launching with an exciting first event!

We’ll be hearing some great case-studies, looking into content for SEO and the outreach, PR and link-building elements on projects. We will be exploring some of the new technical basics required to help guide your SEO projects in 2017 and will look at how to marry your SEO with your ongoing Social Media channels and successfully drive SEO implementation/actions through a reluctant business, development team or client.

We’re really covering a lot in our first event and speakers so far include Guy Thornton, Digital Marketing Director for FOUND, CMC Market’s John Fergan, Alex Douglas-Mann of 360i and Mo Kanneh from Plus One Communications.

This will be a really insightful event and with space for 100, tickets are going very quickly for this one! Whilst this event isn’t directly UX or Design focused, there will be some great information for anyone interested in SEO!

We would like to invite you straight from work for 6.30pm, to unwind with your peers over some drinks and pizza at Club Workspace’s base on Southbank (near the OXO Tower). We will be networking from 6.30pm and guest talks will begin around 7.15. You’re in for some excellent case studies and some thought-provoking insights, so please book now to avoid disappointment.

Hiring managers are welcome, and if you are interested in hosting or sponsoring an event (and would like to get a taste of what we do), please get in touch with Myles McMorrow and we can hold you a ticket!

Tweet the event @TheSEOSocial and let’s get the ball rolling! We look forward to seeing you soon!!!
