BrightonSEO, claimed to be the biggest search conference in the world is going to be run live online in its entirety for the first time this week.

The event, originally scheduled for April this year has, like many other events, has been disrupted by the Coronavirus pandemic. The organisers have decided to run the entire event online across two days; Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd October.

The event is famously often oversubscribed with last year’s allocation of 3,500 tickets selling out in 13 minutes. Last week, BrightonSEO founder, Kelvin Newman tweeted that he is expecting to see 10,000 people register for the online event.

Speakers galore

Across two days, the event will host a diverse range of speakers from across the digital marketing industry. Headline slots include two Google Webmaster Trend Analysts, John Mueller and Gary Illyes.

Other brands represented include Bing, and SEMrush.

Our own editor, Paul Wood will also be speaking at the event, hosting a session called ‘Choice Architecture for Marketers‘ on Thursday afternoon prior to joining the ‘Understanding Searcher Behaviour‘ panel session later that day.


BrightonSEO, which usually runs twice per year at the Brighton Centre generates a huge amount of interest in the digital marketing industry which sees it trending on Twitter with each event.

The event has proven so popular it has spawned a number of ‘fringe’ events including Measure Fest and the Online PR Show.

Tickets for the live event are free and you can register here to join.
