Hi everyone! We are back from Traffic & Conversion Summit 2016 and wanted to share our experience with you. It has been a chilly winter in Philadelphia, so we set our sights on sunny San Diego and the promise of thawing out for a few days.
Once we arrived at the beautiful Manchester Grand Hyatt it was immediately clear that this would be a fun trip. The lobby was already bustling with attendees, marked by their lime green drawstring bags and beaming smiles. We hit the ground running! Us East Coasters couldn’t resist an afternoon outside by the water.
Luckily for us, the sun snuck its way inside to the ballrooms and brightened everyone’s spirits.
Attendees left sessions invigorated and full of actionable ideas. With presentations from Roland Frasier, Molly Pittman, and Gary Vaynerchuk, to name a few, you would have had to make a conscious effort to NOT absorb something insightful. This was a great benefit for SEMrush, the enthusiasm for learning about new tools and techniques was contagious and made for a productive learning environment.
The evening events offered the opportunity to unwind and network further. Great food, conversation, music and drinks! Our team made some exciting new connections while also catching up with old friends.
Thank you to our hosts at Digital Marketer! The show was a major success and we are very much looking forward to returning next year!
