Unbiased, trustworthy content.

Form matches function.
Sessions are constructed so the format matches the topic. Solo sessions offer expert-led deep dives. Panels provide a variety of viewpoints. Roundtables ditch PowerPoints when free-flowing discussion is most valuable. Clinics address your specific, case-by-case needs in a dedicated Q&A environment.
Networking is a cornerstone of the SMX experience. You'll meet prospective clients, partners - even future talent - & grow your professional network. Trade ideas, talk shop, & discuss innovative ways to overcome common marketing challenges with people who are where you are.
100% white hat.
Speakers are held to the highest ethical standards. You only learn tactics that are safe for your brand or clients. No get-rich-quick schemes that might land you in hot water with regulators, the search engines, or your boss.
