The conference, which is being held at the Hilton New York on March 19-23, 2012, is the largest search and social media event of its kind. SES New York attracts 3,500 to 4,000 online marketers.

“SES New York always attracts lots of agency professionals, and we usually program several sessions to interest them,” said Matt McGowan, Managing Director of Americas at Incisive Media. “But this year we are going all out and have created four new sessions featuring the industry’s experts in SEO, advertising and digital media. We’re also addressing a question that many of our attendees raise – the question of doing it yourself or contracting with an agency. Although there are no simple answers to that question, our experts will present the pros and cons that people can then evaluate for themselves.”
