SES London 08: The Best SES in a Long Time

By Li Evans

Dsc_3151 There's still a full day of conference sessions to go to, but I have to say with the two that have past, this SES conference has been the best in a long time.  It's miles above SES London last year, and not just because of the location.

Mike Grehan has put together a spectacular show with Kevin Ryan.  The speakers are top notch, and I can actually say for the first time in a long time I've taken more than one "nugget" away.  I've met some really great search marketers this time out, as well as some great new people, passionate people and intelligent people. 

That's not to say that I never met them before at a conference, but there is just something different going on here.  It is nearly electric as you walk around and converse with people, maybe it's the potential of Yahoo-Microsoft, maybe it is people freely speaking about linking while Adam Lasnick is in the room, maybe it is the kick-ass keynotes, and maybe it is the enthusiasm of the attendees  - I honestly can't tell you what it is, but I'm actually sad that SES London 2008 ends today.

For those of you who've missed this great conference, there's a ton of coverage and photos, and I plan on doing a more in depth post about my experiences here in London.  I don't agree with one of the reviews that was mentioned to me, there wasn't a sales pitch in any of the sessions I was in (and trust me, if there is I let Stewart know).  I just really wanted to convey that the quality of this show has really ratcheted up,  Mike Grehan has put together one awesome show.
