October 2011 UK Online Marketing Conferences & Retail Events

 Internet Retailing Conference

Date: Tuesday, 4 October 2011

Review: I’ve never been, if you can look beyond the visually offensive site the three tracks around customer, internal systems, and industry knowledge seem decent for those looking to dip their foot in online retail. However, the lack of agencies tells me this is a PURELY RETAIL event. Good opportunity to sneak in and nab some new clients?

E-Commerce Expo

Date: Tuesday, 11 October 2011 – Wednesday, 12 October 2011

Review: Lots of free sessions, Facebook is doing the keynote.

Jump

Date: Wednesday, 12 October 2011

Review: An eConsultancy concoction, this focuses on “online and offline, all joined up”. Compared to eConsultancy’s “Funnel” in November, I this seems much larger.

Affiliates4U London

Date: Tuesday, 18 October 2011 – Wednesday, 19 October 2011

Review: It’s huge.

Search Love London

Date: Monday, 24 October 2011 – Tuesday, 25 October 2011

Review:  The Distilled/Moz team will break your bank at £750/ticket, but there are some guaranteed insightful sessions.

November 2011 UK Online Marketing Conferences & Retail Events

MediaPro

Date: Tuesday, 1 November 2011 – Wednesday, 2 November 2011

Review: I’ve never heard of this one before; targeting those looking to integrate online with offline, social media and moible,  blah blah blah.  Generic. May be worth walking around the 150 supplier booths offering up the bits to complete your integrated service though.

Funnel

Date: Tuesday, 1 November 2011

Review: A new conference by eConsultancy, I’d wait a year to see if this is decent; it seems to be a workshop in how to maximise your digital budget. Good for digital account managers perhaps?

B2B Marketing Conference: Accelerate Peak Performance

Date: Wednesday, 9 November 2011

Review: I find these guys usually put on decent events, great for those new to the digital game.

SAScon Mini

Date: Thursday, 24 November 2011

Review:  A trip to Manchester to chill with Pete Young is a definite win. Plus, at £10.00 it’s no wonder these tickets are sold out months in advance!

International Search Summit

Date: Thursday, 24 November 2011

Review: With a focus on international SEO & PPC, this day may provide some light with speakers from OMD & aimClear. If you have multiple international clients it’s worth a look.

Conversion Conference

Date: Wednesday, 30 November 2011

Review:  This is for proper analytics oriented geeks. I can’t wait!

December 2011 UK Online Marketing Conferences & Retail Events

In tribute to all digital marketers, get pissed and do something naughty at a Christmas party.

February 2012 UK Online Marketing Conferences & Retail Events

SES London

Date: Monday, 20 February 2012 – Thursday, 24 February 2012

Review: If you can survive 4 days of a conference, my hat’s off to you! I can’t imagine all 4 days are equally informative.

March 2012 UK Online Marketing Conferences & Retail Events

ThinkVis

Date: Saturday, 3 March 2012

Review: If it’s put on by the hodge, there are two guarentees – great insights & an even better afterparty. Plus, only hardcore marketers will voluntarily spend their weekend in Leeds.

Internet Retailing Expo

Date: Wednesday, 21 March 2012 – Thursday, 22 March, 2012

Review:  Looks like a sea of booths.

#BrightonSEO

Date: TBD

Review: A free conference, a day out in Brighton, and high quality speakers = WIN. This is the Lady Gaga Tour of the SEO world, so you’d better grab your ticket the second they go live.  Last time 500 tickets sold out in 26 minuted.

April 2012 UK Online Marketing Conferences & Retail Events

Internet World

Date: Tuesday, 24 April 2012 – Thursday, 26 April 2012

SMX Advanced (Search Marketing Expo)

Date: Tuesday, 15 May 2012 – Wednesday, 16 May 2012

Review: One of the major SEO conferences, the level of insight was a bit hit or miss in teh supposed “Advanced” track in May 2011s.
