Well what a summer we’ve had (considering!), but it seems we are finally but sadly moving away from the festival season and into spaces which hold a certain kind of warmth we all become attracted too come the blistery Autumn months – somewhere that’s heated enough for us to enjoy networking environments to the full potential. August didn’t see a great deal of Ecommerce or Magento events coming through, however in September we’re seeing progression as the tech world embraces the forever changing pace of its development!
Here are the top events we have lovingly picked out for you to go have a browse at, meet new people and explore an amazing variety of businesses within the Ecommerce industry.
Friday 2nd September
Starting out as a conversation at a pub amongst the founders of BrightonSEO, in just a few years its grown to be one of the biggest SEO conferences in the UK. A place where fellow SEO’ers can meet, chat and share ideas. BrightonSEO has become an innovator in its own right (and very quickly), with a huge backing from the industry’s key players being sponsored by the likes of Pi Datamatrics, Linkdex and Caliber, whom will all be giving insightful talks on the day plus so many others.
Our Digital Marketing Manager Josh will be attending this one and its always been a highlight for him – we can see its only onward and upwards from here for BrightonSEO! What’s also exciting is that there’s more than the one conference a year and we’re already looking forward to see whats on at the next one!
