SMX Advanced Interview @ WebProNews

Filed in Conferences/Educ., Interviews by Matt McGee on June 9, 2008 3 Comments

Just noticed this: WebProNews has posted an interview I did with Michael McDonald early on Day 1 at SMX Advanced. The sessions hadn’t even begun yet, so we’re talking more about the conference in general, SEO going more mainstream, and big picture stuff like that. Makes a nice complement to my Five Takeaways from SMX Advanced post from earlier today. You can watch it here through the magic of embedded video!

Thanks to Michael and the great WPN crew for the invite to chat!

    Great interview Matt. I too was a bit surprised at how much SMX Advanced has grown in just one year. Personally, I enjoy the conference being the size it is now, and I’m unsure just how I will feel should this conference continue to grow in size… to something say SES size. It will be interesting to see what happens in the upcoming years.

    Karl, get this: I asked Danny about how much bigger the show was, and he said he sold the same amount of tickets as last year. But … he said there were more sessions, which means more speakers, and more exhibitors, which means more people. That’s where the bigger crowd came from, not from selling more tickets.

    That’s very interesting. I guess it makes sense though. Hopefully, their intentions are to continue to keep attendance to a minimum.
