The rise of mobile and its still-growing popularity is changing the landscape of digital marketing on a seemingly daily basis. With the focus on Local, Social and Mobile, the 27 presentations were carefully selected and 32 top speakers vetted by the co-organizers. Each presentation focuses on providing the best methods to compete in this ever-changing landscape.

The 2017 conference spans two days and starts on June 29 – Local Search Day. This day features 18 presentations, including four keynote addresses, four Rocks Talks, the Local Search Day Panel, plus nine break-out sessions. On June 30, Social Media Day, the conference delivers nine, 90-minute workshops that dive deep into SEO, Analytics, Paid Media, Content Amplification and – new this year, the Digital Marketing Clinic.

The amazing speaker lineup includes keynotes from Yelp’s John Carroll, Local Search Association’s Greg Sterling, HubSpot Director Dan Tyre, and Navads CEO Lex ten Veen.

The conference kicks off with keynote speaker Greg Sterling presenting on Big Trends Shaping the Future of ‘Local’ Search. Lex ten Veen, traveling all the way from the Netherlands, presents next!

Lex ten Veen had this to say about his keynote: “It’s a great pleasure to elaborate on what I have been saying for well over a decade now. Maps are the future and lie in the heart of innovation for life and business development alike. I look forward to sharing my thoughts with attendees regarding the relevancy of Maps and their place in the marketing mix in 2017 and beyond. Stay tuned.”

HubSpot’s Dan Tyre, who will be presenting the closing keynote on June 29, shared the following: “I am super excited to be in Dallas to talk about the continuing transition of traditional marketing to inbound marketing. After 10 years of working with clients that range from 2 people to the enterprise, most of it on the phone, it’s super fun to meet face-to-face with businesses who are new to inbound, practicing inbound, and want to bring their results to the next level and become inbound experts. The Inbound Revolution is a great overview of the fundamental changes in business driving this transition.”

Other notable speakers include Karen Liz Albert, Lance Bachmann, Dave Carberry, Bernadette Coleman, Lissa Duty, Damon Gochneaur, Danielle Hanson, Bill Hartzer, Moosa Hemani, Byron Ingraham, Beth Kahlich, Katy Katz, Dean Lindsay, Chris Marentis, Casey Markee, Brad McCormick, Hillit Meidar-Alfi, Robin Moss, John Nosal, Jayne Rios, J Schuh, Erik Solan, Mike Stewart, Michelle Stinson Ross, Dan Thies, DeAndre Upshaw, Jeff Whitfield, and Joe Youngblood.
