    What are the “Must-Attend Conferences” for you? Let’s discuss!

    Do you have a favorite conference or event you "must-attend"? What do you gain from attending these industry events?

    Lissa Duty, who manages our online community and Bernadette Coleman, the CEO of Advice Local also organizes a national digital marketing conference each year, Rocks Digital!

    In thinking about conferences and all the announcements going on with Rocks Digital this week, we thought a discussion about conferences, which are your favorites and the biggest takeaways you get from them would be interesting.

    BTW … If you haven’t heard of the Rocks Digital Marketing Conference, check it out. They announced Greg Sterling of Local Search Association as a keynote yesterday and have already announced two more speakers this morning. They have 30+ to go.

    Re: What are the “Must-Attend Conferences” for you? Let’s discuss!

    Wow! Thanks for mentioning #RocksDigital! This is an exciting week for us, because we are announcing speakers all week as we wrap up the 1st big registration push.

    I love attending monthly events and conferences to learn from other influencers in the industry and to catch up / meet new people. A few of my favorite conferences (besides Rocks Digital, of course) is State of Search and Big D. I attend them EVERY year.

    Re: What are the “Must-Attend Conferences” for you? Let’s discuss!

    I personally don't attend conferences, can't travel any more. But I sure like to cover them remotely and try to live vicariously through other's experiences.

    Thanks AdviceLocal and Lissa for this thread.

    I'm excited to hear more about this year's #RocksDigital! speaker lineup.
    And congrats on getting Greg for keynote. Should be great!

    I bet 80 - 90% of the members here don't even know about your conference, so I hope some of them that learn about it will go. Please keep us informed as you build up to the big event!

    Linda, you'll definitely be able to follow along almost like you were there. We usually trend on Twitter and we have LIVE bloggers to share the moments with those that can't attend.

    Linda, Rocks Digital is quite lucky to have Greg! They also have representatives from Infogroup, Marquette and many others coming to speak this year. Forum members can follow the speaker announcements at this link on the Rocks Digital website.

    Where are the Must Attend Conferences? Anywhere that is warm! Being up here in Cleveland, it was a great get away last year going to San Diego when we went to Social Media Marketing World conference. Tons of material and they had a great online access to the recorded audio workshops and PPT's afterwards that really helped integrate everything learned at the conference.
    There was so much info that we got some great pieces of content out of it for our blog and also gained some connections in the process by reblogging about the shared ideas. Feel free to check out our content from that conference.

    Justin, are you planning to attend SMMW 2016? If so, perhaps you would like to live blog on the #RocksDigital website. PM if you would like to discuss this idea.

    As much as we would like to take another trip to San Diego, we will not be going again this year, but maybe next year! Thank you for the invitation Lisa, hope to take you up on it another time.

    Re: What are the “Must-Attend Conferences” for you? Let’s discuss!

    I've had the opportunity to attend Rocks Digital almost every year now, and have to say that there is always great info to glean and implement into my digital marketing and local search activities.

    This years speakers are looking like another great year of cutting edge info.
