Texas, along with its other many accolades, is quickly becoming known for its rich technology base with some of the tech big dogs now calling Texas home. In keeping with this technology boom, Texas is playing host to some of the biggest technology and digital marketing conferences in the nation during the month of March and beyond.
If you thought March might be a slow month for you, we can change that right now and keep you busy learning and networking deep in the heart of Texas.
March Digital Marketing Events in Texas
This is a huge event in Austin that just keeps getting bigger every year with 3 separate conferences which merge into one giant week. SXSW runs from March 13-22 this year and features Music, Film and Interactive.
The BIA Kelsey National conference is being held in Dallas March 25th – 27th and brings the unique perspective of local for national brands. As a national or multi-location business it is important that you know how to reach your target audience where they are locally. To help you do this or to just do it better, BIA Kelsey has marketing experts from Facebook and Google, plus major national brands like PricewaterhouseCoopers, who will teach you how to do the same for your brand. You will also have the opportunity to hear from Bernadette Coleman, the #QueenofLocalSEO, as she shares the local SEO strategies that Advice Interactive and Local Site Submit, an Advice technology, employs for their clients.
This is a one day, March 31st, invite-only conference where attendees will overcome the common “information overload” they feel at some conferences with straightforward sessions that give three specific takeaways. Two of our own are speaking, Lissa Duty, presenting a session on “Social Media Strategies for Enterprise” and on the “Digital Enterprise Keynote Panel”, Bernadette Coleman. If you haven’t requested your invite do it now. There are a few spots still available.
We didn’t forget about you California…
If you do not live in or near Texas and prefer something on the West Coast, you have not been forgotten. Social Media Marketing World will be in sunny San Diego, CA on March 25th – 27th and will feature some of the world’s top Social Media gurus, including Mari Smith, Eric Tung and Martin Shervington who will teach you some of the best social media marketing techniques you can find. (Say Hi to Michael Stelzner from Advice Interactive. We will be at the BIA event in Dallas.)
