April is a busy time of year for marketing events and conferences that attract thousands of the best business brains from around the continent. If you’re looking to get involved by listening to some world-class speakers and meeting likeminded marketers, here are three options for the month of April.
BrightonSEO is a two-day conference that is being held between the 6th and 8th of April. The event, which is sponsored by exciting marketing companies like LEOlytics, is being meticulously planned to have tens and tens of speakers across just a couple of days.
The event will bring a great crowd together that has night events on each evening, making it a good place to informally network too. On the first day, there are a bunch of great training courses being held, making BrightonSEO the complete package. Some of the workshops are online, but most are held in Brighton on the 6th – everything from Copywriting training to Digital PR.
Registration opens at 9am, with the first talks being held at 10am and run all the way through to 6pm. There are various rooms, so there are many different speakers to choose from at any one time.
The Marketing Meetup
The Marketing Meetup is being held in London on the 5th of April, a day before BrightonSEO. This is an informal meetup for marketers to share their knowledge with one another, though there will inevitably be some speakers.
It’s a one-day event, with the doors opening at 6PM and the talks starting at 7PM. It may only be a couple of hours long, but it’s a friendly way to meet some marketers and enjoy a couple of talks. A nice little warm-up for the BrightonSEO, perhaps.
The Marketing Meetup is a free event with registration available right now. It runs every two months, so there are no issues if you cannot make this one. Being one of the more casual events, you can see this as more of an enjoyable night out in the company of similar minds.
International Conference on Social Media Marketing for Businesses
Later on in the month, between the 21st and 22nd, there is a two-day international conference on Social Media marketing. Whilst usually held in London, the conference is online-only, though it nevertheless is looking to bring together a broad number of diverse scholarly events in a single conference. The exact presentations that will be made aren’t fully detailed yet, but they will focus on business and social media.
Registration for tickets is €300 for a listener and a little more for a presenter. On day 1, a digital presentation starts at midday, whilst day two has an e-proceedings book. This is a conference, particularly for those who want to submit a paper on their work within social media research, but you can just be a listener.
This is ideal for those who are involved in academia or simply enjoy an academic approach to digital marketing. Whilst less formal and online, the day will be packed full of high-quality presentations.
