“With three ‘kick-ass’ keynotes, 36 sessions on hot topics, and 72 industry experts as speakers, SES London 2013 is shaping up to be Europe’s leading digital marketing event,” says Mike Grehan, publisher of Search Engine Watch and ClickZ and producer of the SES international conference series. “Along with three days packed full of essential content to help experienced and advertising professionals navigate the digital landscape, SES London 2013 also includes a 2-day expo featuring leading vendors in the industry, along with a host of networking opportunities.”

On Tuesday, 19 Feb., Dave Coplin, Chief Envisioning Officer, Advertising and Online, Microsoft UK, will give the Morning Keynote, which is entitled, “Future Forward – Paradigm Shifts in the Digital Revolution.”

Coplin says, “The web is quietly, but quickly, undergoing a social revolution, blending the analogue and digital worlds to become even more powerful in the way we all live, work and play. Search is at the very heart of this change as the internet evolves to be more about ‘doing’ and less about ‘finding’. Understanding this change is crucial, not just for the satisfaction and welfare of consumers and customers, but equally for the success and relevance of brands and businesses. This session will uncover the challenges (and opportunities!) faced by us all as we move further into this new way of living and working, and how shifting to a more human approach enables us to unlock the full potential of all that technology has to offer a modern society.”

On Tuesday, one of the conference sessions on hot topics is entitled, “How to Earn Visiblity & Links Through Killer Content Strategy.” SES London 2013 held a poll on Facebook last week that allowed the audience to vote on the final session. This was the winning session.

On Wednesday, 20 Feb., Dara Nasr, Head of Agency Sales, Twitter, will give the morning keynote, “Maximising Realtime Marketing Opportunities and Transmedia Storytelling.” He will provide:

  • Examples of how people connect through shared interests
  • Case studies of brands communicating with their customers
  • Learnings around harnessing a transmedia approach to planning
  • Real-time examples of brands pushing their campaigns further and faster

On Wednesday, another one of the hot sessions is entitled, “Remarketing/Retargeting Done Right... & Wrong.”

On Thursday, 21 Feb., Marty Weintraub, Founder & Evangelist, aimClear, will give the morning keynote, “Optimizing Humans! The Art Of Data-Driven Social Marketing.” Attendees will:

  • Learn techniques for mapping search to social. Discover how to identify socially plugged-in authority users along classic lines of search conversion semantics history.
