Benchmark 2018 – what’s new on the agenda?

May 11th, 2018

Ready to elevate the search marketing performance of your brand? Come and pick the brains of brands like Google, Deloitte UK, DeepCrawl and Barclays at Benchmark Search Conference in September at Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel

If you attended Benchmark in previous years, you’ll know it’s a day full of inspirational and thought-provoking insights, practical advice from those at the top of their game, and friendly networking with others in the industry. But you don’t just get to look into the future of search from other brands’ perspectives…

A powerful learning opportunity

To offer delegates a powerful and engaging learning experience, we open up the floor for discussion during our interactive panel sessions. This gives you the opportunity to ask the questions that matter to your company, and find out how to apply what you’ve learnt to your own marketing strategy. This year we’re focusing on two of the most important topics in search marketing today:

Succeeding in Google’s Mobile-First World (panel session 1)

  • James Rowland, Search Manager, Financial & Risk, Thomson Reuters
  • Jo Turnbull, Strategic Account Manager, Searchmetrics
  • Omi Sido, Senior Technical SEO, Canon Europe
  • Colin Woon, Global Head of SEO, William Hill

Perfecting Your PPC in 2019 (panel session 2)

  • David Karellen, Head of Paid Search, Click Consult
  • Sabrina Garufi, Agency Development Manager, Google
  • Rumyana Miteva, Head of Search, Secret Escapes

You’ll be offered the option to sign up for either or both of the panel sessions when you apply for a place at Benchmark 2018. Nearer the time, you’ll also get the chance to submit your burning questions prior to the event.

New venue, new faces

To accommodate our growing audience, we’ve moved Benchmark’s venue to Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel…
