Don’t Miss the PubCon South Review at this Week’s DFW SEM Meeting

DFW SEMThe March gathering of the DFW SEM association will be held Wednesday, March 18, 2009 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Renaissance Hotel in Richardson, Texas.  Members of the DFW SEM community will be hosting an informal panel to discuss and review the latest news and trends learned from PubCon South.

PubCon South is the largest search marketing and social media conference in the state of Texas. The event, which occurred last week from March 11 through March 13, brought together the leading thought experts in the field of search engine marketing and social media.

Speakers at PubCon South included Guy Kawasaki and Matt Cutts, along with numerous experts — including Lead Maverick CEO Sean Jackson and Lead Maverick Partner Tony Wright — and others from the DFW SEM community.

“We created this panel to help share with our community the information we learned from this tremendous event,” says Tony Wright, president of the DFW Search Marketing Association. Tony continues, “PubCon represents a gold mine of knowledge about tactics, tips and trends that are occurring in the market. Our goal on Wednesday, March 18th, will be to share these insights with our community in North Texas.”

You do not have to be a DFW SEM member to attend the meeting. The cost is $10 for members and $30 for non-members. You may pre-pay the event registration online.
