This month, two Sitizens, Gabriel Assouline, SEM lead, and Rémi Turcotte, performance marketing and SEO lead, will be traveling to New York City to attend SMX East 2014.

SMX is the search and social media marketing conference and expo, and its mission is to educate people at the forefront of the search engine marketing game. It runs as a series of yearly conferences in several cities in the world, and this fall, from September 29 to October 2, SMX East will be held at New York City’s Javits Center.

Our Sitizens are delighted to attend the conference. Says Gab, “I’m looking to be inspired by Powerpoint-free panel discussions on the challenges and opportunities in paid search. I also see this conference as a “refresher” course that will help fine tune my PPC skills with sessions on the basics: keyword research, ad copy and account structure. There are also new developments in programmatic buying, native advertising, mobile and video… I want to come back with a good understanding of new services we can offer to our clients.”

For his part, Rémi is looking forward to getting more information on Google and SSL, Google’s Pigeon, Hummingbird, Panda and Penguin among others. “I want to stay up to date with these subjects and more, meet with experts during the networking sessions, and also attend several advanced workshops like ‘Meet The SEOs & Search Engines’ or ‘Trends & Tactics In Mobile E-Commerce.’ I’m excited to meet people that share the same passion as me! There are several speakers I’m looking forward to hearing, such as Bruce Clay and Danny Sullivan, Annie Cushing and Erin Everhart, among plenty of others.”

More sessions Rémi and Gabriel look forward to attending:
