SES Chicago and SES Paris: A Tale of Two Cities – Plus Session Coverage links
To those who were fortunate enough to attend the Search Engine Strategies Conference in Chicago this week, I hope that you are having a great time. If you hadn’t seen it, Todd Malicoat, aka Stuntdubl, offers 14 Chicago Conference Conversation Creators. He also includes “10 Things You Shouldn’t say at SES Chicago.”
I was contacted yesterday by Julien Raby, who just returned from the SES Conference in Paris, where he spoke at a couple of sessions, and appears disappointed that the conference didn’t draw the crowds that it could have. He offers some suggestions for next year’s Paris conference in What’s wrong with Search Engine Strategies (SES) Paris?
To those of us who couldn’t make it to Paris, and who aren’t braving the chilling temperatures of the Windy City, here are some of the sites offering recaps and images of Chicago SES Sessions:
