We conducted more than half a dozen video interviews with attendees at SES Toronto 2009 -- to get feedback on the conference. Basically, the event got rave reviews with comments ranging from "excellent" to "bloody fantastic."
A couple of attendees mentioned the Monday keynote by Tara Hunt, author of The
Whuffie Factor. The Tuesday keynote by Emanuel Rosen, author of The Anatomy of Buzz Revisited, was also mentioned.
A couple of attendees mentioned the "Canadian focus" of the conference or the new information on the "Canadian landscape."
Also mentioned were the session, Beyond Linkbait: Getting Authoritative Online Mentions.
Each of the video interviews runs from 14 to 56 seconds long, so check them out below.
So, congratulations to Andrew Goodman, the SES Advisory Board and SearchEngineWatch.com, who organized and programmed SES Toronto 2009. Based on the feedback, it appears that the keynoters and mix of sessions in the Nuts & Bolts, Corporateville and Geek Tracks appealed to both first time attendees and SES veterans.
Hey, I couldn't make this stuff up. Oh, and check out the crowd at the bing booth at SES Toronto 2009. Yes, with close to 1,200 attendees, the exhibitors were happy, too.
