Exclusive: SES opens its doors in Amsterdam

Search Engine Strategies today announces a new addition to their world wide event list. March 16th and 17th SES will organize for the first time SES Amsterdam, Holland.

With events in London, Paris, Hamburg, New York, San Jose, Chicago, Toronto and Tokyo and several webcasts SES is the biggest organizer of events in the search industry. At the events visitors can follow workshops and listen to keynotes and panels. Networking plays a big part in the events. Every event has got multiple networking-sessions and SES is known for giving search marketers the opportunity to meet one another at lunches, dinners and receptions.

SES Amsterdam will be hosted in hotel Krasnapolsky and will be a two day venue. The first day will be all about practical workshops on SEO and SEA. The second day will be filled with speakers and panels.

SES Amsterdam has joined forces with "Speld in Hooiberg", a Dutch event for search marketers in Holland. SES will take care of one day of speakers and panels and organisers BBP will host a day filled with workshops.

The line up for SES Amsterdam will be revealed over the next coming weeks but we already know there will be a lot of Dutch speakers.

Matt McGowan, VP and Publisher of the SES Search Marketing Conference series, Search Engine Watch and ClickZ is happy with the newest addition to the SES events: “We are very excited about launching SES in Amsterdam this March 2009.  Holland is the world’s 16th largest economy but only the world’s 61st most populous country. One of the first nations to unite the world with global trade routes, many of the world largest companies call Holland home including Royal Dutch Shell, ING Group, Fortis and Unilever. This event will not only be a lot of fun to attend it will also be one packed with learning opportunities. I look forward to seeing everyone there!”   


Joost de Valk of OrangeValley, responsible for the programming of SES Amsterdam, says: "It's very good for the Dutch search marketing industry to have an SES event in Holland, and prove that the industry in Holland is mature. It's going to be a great event with very good speakers and sessions, which should get everyone an insight into how to increase their ROI on search in these hard times"

Joost thinks SES can help the Dutch and Belgian industry forward: "Search spend is more than 50% of the online ad spend in both the Netherlands and Belgium, and because of that the search market has become a big one. Most of the knowledge in this market had to come from outside of the region though, because there was no in-depth conference on the field in the Netherlands itself. SES Amsterdam is going to change that, and will also allow the talents from different search marketing agencies to show and proof themselves."

Searchcowboys will off course be present at this event and cover the sessions, talk to the speakers and inform you about what's going on. To register for the event you can visit the SES Amsterdam website.

Next month SES organizes the Search Engine Strategies London. Off course Searchcowboys will also be covering this event. Going up to the event we will be informing you about the event and its speakers.
