Why I Am Looking Forward to Think Visibility

By | August 10, 2010 at 8:27 pm | 4 comments | SEO | Tags: , , ,

On the 4th September this year I will be heading down to Leeds with Mediaworks to attend Think Visibility. I have to say I am looking forward to it greatly! Having lost my conference virginity earlier in the year SASCon, I am eager to attend further conferences, particularly Think Visibility.

Think Visibility has gathered a reputation for being packed full of informative speakers from all corners of the SEO Industry, but it is also becoming a fantastic advertisement for the UK SEO scene. Located centrally in terms of the UK, it gathers interest from most SEO’s in the industry in the UK and this allows for all sorts of fun and games (or so I am told).

As an avid user of Twitter, I have connected with many great SEO’s in the UK and this will be one of the first opportunities I have got to actually meeting them in person. Also, meeting new people and connecting is something that is a side benefit to the amazing list of speakers at Think Visibility.  Unfortunately one of the things that most people, including myself, are not particularly good at is networking. Thankfully Dr Peter Meyers (Dr Pete) recently collated a bunch of great tips for conference attendees of all levels of experience which I am sure will help out.

Despite the high quality of SEO Newcastle has to offer being very high, we are certainly at the wrong end of the country when it comes to conferences and panel-led events for the SEO industry. One of the main reasons I have had for not attending conferences in the past has been the majority have been held in London. This is why ThinkVis has appealed to me and is attracting many people who would not be willing to travel to London for a one day conference.

Hell, if you need any more reasons to go, check out Rishi Lakhani’s post on why you should attend Think Visibility.

    Kev you will enjoy ThinkVis mate, you can pull some good insights out of some of the talks and the pre and after parties are worth the ticket :)

    Carly, cats don`t have the same street value they once did.

    Thanks for the laugh Dom, I agree that Super Carly should come. I’ve seen Muse live, they were good, but not as good as us! lol

    @Dean. Really looking forward to it fella. Glad to hear you are getting back on the feet and whilst March sounds a long way off, it will fly past fella.

    I’ll take as many notes as I can – will probably microblog to the Mediaworks site.
