BrightonSEO started out, like many a fine idea, as conversation in a pub. Kelvin Newman and some other SEOs were talking: “Why don’t we get a few people together who work in SEO, arrange a couple of talks and give people who work in the industry a chance to meet-up”. The idea was to share ideas and chat about all the interesting stuff that we can’t really talk about with anyone outside the industry for fear of them falling asleep.
Word got out and more people showed up than he expected.
So, next time he booked a larger room… again, more and more people showed up.
In just a few short years BrightonSEO has become one of the most popular and respected natural search conferences in the UK. Our last event had room for 1700 people, the tickets sold out in less than 60 seconds.
Our aim has always been to highlight that the city by the sea is a hotbed for SEO talent, and provide a ‘Brightonian’ spin on the search marketing conference and networking event.
