    This was the most relevant SEO conference I’ve attended in a very long time!

     

    It’s all focused on News and featured good gender diversity, as well as good diversity of backgrounds from presenters.

     

    A great mix of editorial and technical content

     

    Every single session was helpful and valuable – very different to other conferences where there is barely News SEO Content

     

    The variety of speakers from many different renowned publishers, the focus specifically on news.

     

    The speakers were all chosen very well. All of them were fluent, clear and informative.

     

    Focus and information on AMP and Discover

     

    The panels were fantastic, and the engagement from the attendees made them even better

     

    The amount of knowledge I gained on Newsroom SEO from a variety of speakers.

     

    the software was excellent, Q&A handled well every time, my fav speaker was Christine 100%

     

    It’s hard to pin down – everything about the conference surpassed my every expectation. The organization, the speakers, the general spirit of honesty and investment in quality content, the airmeet platform, the breakout tables, the commitment to answering questions – all of it was 100% brilliant! I’m well impressed!

     

    Excellent, comprehensive brain dump to bring back to org stakeholders

     

    To have a focus on SEO from the perspective of a publisher was refreshing and helpful. I’m not sure e-commerce came up even once!

     

    Getting a place to learn/talk about editorial SEO, and hear perspectives from major players in the field.

     

    The interactive nature with the panelists and organizers and the ability to ask questions as well as upvote questions.

     

    The amount of actionable information provided by true experts

     

    Having a specialized SEO News conference was the best idea ever. I am so glad I saw Barry’s tweet last week and was able to attend with my team.
