If you haven't been to a SES event before you may not know about the many social events that compliment the conferences – if you are a Search Engine Strategies alum you have likely been waiting for this post for a long time. In fact, it is these social events that facilitate one of the most cited take-away's our delegates enjoy, the face-to-face networking - much of which takes place in the evenings, after a full day of learning in the seminars. To say we strive to work hard and play hard would be an understatement!
The party schedule can get a bit over bearing and many evenings there will be more than one option - sometimes 3 or 4, which brings me to the main points of this post:
1. Each evening generally starts at one of the 2 bars in the lobby of the Hilton. Please don’t be shy, our moderators, speakers and staff are a very friendly group and most enjoy meeting new people, discussing industry topics and trends and generally having a good time – please introduce yourself!
2. Delegates – in order to make sense of the evening schedule please watch the *OFFICIAL* SES NYC 2007 Party & Events thread in the Search Engine Watch forums. This thread will help guide you to ensure you do not miss anything - or should I say as little as possible.
3. Companies - to maximize the visibility of your event please be in touch with the official SES NY Party Coordinator, Joseph Morin. Joe will inform you of the other events you may be in conflict with and spread the word about your party to our conference delegates.
See you all in New York!
