Last month's inaugural SLC|SEM event kicked off with hundreds of search and interactive marketers in attendance. Conversations ranged from technical tip-swapping and job connections to convivial banter between old and new friends alike, and the room was buzzing with excitement about the upcoming events. Not only were the attendees some of the brightest minds in industry. Key sponsors for the organization represent the top search and interactive firms in the country, based right here in Utah:
- SEO.com - Continually ranked in the top 10 search marketing firms in the country by publications including Website Magazine and Promotion World, this Utah institution and founding sponsor of SLC|SEM has worked with clients including Mrs. Fields, 1-800-Contacts, H&R Block and Dell. The SEO.com team also has one of the best marketing statements in the industry, in our opinion: "Search Marketing Firm, Fueled by Geeky Zeal!"
- Progrexion Marketing - This Utah-based marketing organization is on the leading edge of comprehensive interactive campaigns. Working with clients on a range of response-driven services including search, affiliate marketing, email marketing, conversion optimization and even teleservices and design, Progrexion also has a dedicated representative on the Board of Directors in Tambra Hamlin, the organization's Secretary and Communications Officer.
- Open Air Cinema - Anyone who attended the October event could not miss the Open Air Cinema inflatable screen. Watching the SLC|SEM promotional video projected on this unique palette brought to mind the vision of giant, inflatable Snoopy at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The company, which is based in Lindon, is the world's largest outdoor cinema equipment supplier and event producer.
The excitement about the newly formed SLC|SEM organization continues as Utah-area search and interactive marketers make plans to attend the November SLC|SEM event next Wednesday, November 16th, from 6 to 9 p.m. The event, which will be held at Hotel Monaco, will feature keynote speaker and industry icon Marshall Simmonds. Pre-registration ends tomorrow, so make sure to get your tickets immediately:
