On April 10 we attended Brighton SEO to see some amazing speakers, but instead of the usual event reviews we wanted to bring you something a little different. We interviewed a variety of presenters to find out what they wanted to get out of Brighton SEO, as well as getting a little more information from some of them regarding their talk.

As for us…

We went to Brighton SEO with open minds, wanting to mingle with a number of industry peers and brands attending the show. We are regular attendees and love to discuss SEO with everyone that will listen.

As always, the speakers didn’t fail to deliver. We enjoyed listening to other people’s thoughts and experience on topics varying from machine learning and social image sharing, right the way through to Gary Illyes from Google Switzerland talking about ‘wearables, mobile, and the internet as we know it’.
