One of the advantages of working for a local search engine that uses event listings to promote the business listings, is that I have, at my finger tips, a rich index of seminars, summits, and conferences all rank ordered by demand (popularity), based on the search query volume for each. It is amazing what a search engine can tell you.

Hey Paul, that’s a sweet list! I take it you’re focused on U.S. based online marketing conferences? Just curious.
WebGuild is running a Social Media Strategies event and PRNews is holding a Digital PR event that focuses on the online component of PR.
Paul – what a great resource! Thank you for putting together and for including the Next Generation Marketing series.
[…] Though there seem to be two a week that are “must be there” conferences — this week, for example, the Shop.org Annual Summit in Vegas and Web 2.0 in NYC — I was glad to come across this helpful list today, from Paul O’Brien: […]
Justin, my pleasure, I’d love to learn more if you are affiliated, drop me an email with some details.
Lee, great point, yes, focus is U.S. based. How much of an indication is that of my ethnocentric view of the world; it didn’t even occur to me that there were conferences beyond San Francisco! 😉
Follow up post to come!
[…] O’Brien provides the The Definitive Online Marketing Conferences ListÂ which is a nice list for all of us. Thanks […]
