An important date in our calendar

BrightonSEO is one of the biggest search marketing conferences around. Drawing over 5000 search enthusiasts from 50+ countries, it offers the chance to learn from the finest digital marketing minds in the world.

In other words, it’s Glastonbury for the SEO community. And we’ve attended every year since 2017. How could we miss it?

“BrightonSEO has played a big part in Seeker’s growth by helping us learn from industry experts, stay on top of digital trends, network with peers and potential clients, and even win new business. We’ve also been able to cultivate the Seeker brand through exhibiting, delivering talks, and running our advanced training course.”

Gareth Simpson — Managing Director, Seeker Digital

From the South Coast to San Diego

First held in a room above a pub in Brighton in 2010, the BrightonSEO conference has come a long way since. With the main event now taking place at the iconic, seafront-located Brighton Centre, the conference has since gone international. 2023 marks the launch of BrightonSEO’s first US-based event, bringing together the best speakers and trainers within the SEO community on the other side of the Atlantic.

Our BrightonSEO journey

We attended our first conference in 2017, back when we were still a fledgling SEO agency. Taking in hundreds of talks and networking with thousands of our digital marketing peers since, we’re now BrightonSEO veterans. These days, you’ll not only find us exhibiting on our signature Seeker-branded stand, but we’ve also helped hundreds of eager learners level up their link building expertise through our esteemed training programs.
