BrightonSEO is the premier SEO event where the most brilliant minds in international SEO and localization come together to unlock the largest search marketing conference. This event gathers SEO experts and marketers from across the globe, offering the ideal platform to exchange ideas, learn, network and elevate your SEO skills.
Much like an annual SEO meetup, we have attended BrightonSEO for seven consecutive years (like BrightonSEO 2019), and each time, the event has not only exceeded our expectations but also significantly enriched our SEO expertise.

The “Behind-the-Scenes” story of the SEO conference: BrightonSEO
BrightonSEO’s origins trace back to a casual gathering in a pub, where a group of people were discussing Search Engine Marketing and Optimization. Kelvin Newman, the event’s organizer (and its driving force), was inspired during this pub chat. He suggested, “Why don’t we bring together SEO professionals, host a couple of talks, and provide an opportunity for industry peers to connect?” That’s how the event began.
