SearchLeeds 2017

With Leeds being a hub for some of the biggest and best search agencies in the country, you’d hope there would be an event that brings the digital community together to share their thoughts, insights, and general musings on all things Search!

And so there is… SearchLeeds kicked off in 2016 with around 400 attendees, increasing to a whopping estimated 1000 attendees yesterday! Brilliantly highlighting the passion and expertise for digital and tech that Leeds and The North has to offer, and establishing SearchLeeds as one of the biggest digital conferences in the region.

Short, sharp talks covering everything from SEO, PPC, analytics, agile, management, conversion, paid social and content marketing – made for an insightful, entertaining and informative day away from the desk. It was easy to hop from stage to stage - to ensure you got the most out of the day.

At Craft, we recruit for leading digital agencies in and around Leeds - so it was important for me personally to widen my understanding of a market I recruit for day in, day out, and meet some friendly new (and old) faces in the process. With around 30 different speakers from companies and agencies across the UK, spread across three stages at the First Direct Arena, it had something for everyone.

It’s great to see local agencies, spearheaded by the guys at Branded3, join forces to put on and contribute to this free event (yes free! what a bargain!!).

Thank you to all involved, and bring on SearchLeeds 2018!
