It appears as though the pickings for those interested in both usability/user experience design and search engine optimization/marketing have one more conference to choose from in the same week. Jakob Nielson’s User Experience 2007 conference is set for December 2-7, 2007, in Las Vegas.
Pubcon – December 4-7,
– December 3 – 7.
One wonders how this happened?
Interestingly, from the search engine marketing side, more traditional speakers are filtering out into other large, established conferences, such as those from the Direct Marketing Association. Talk at the SMX Social Media conference in NYC, where I’m posting this from, is about the number of conferences, limited number of speakers to go around, making hard choices and in some cases, leaving old stomping grounds and leaping into related industries in an effort to reach and network with new people and companies.
Okay…back to my duties covering sessions at the conference I did get to.
For December? I’m staying home.
