The digital industry is thriving and the rate of change can seem overwhelming, that is why a good event or conference is a great way to stay in touch with the industry and the diverse mix of people who make it.
White has a proud history of event attendance, with a number of decorated speakers in our midst. It will come as no surprise that we like to keep an eye on what events are taking place throughout the year.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled a handy list of digital events running throughout the UK over the next 12 months, and picked out the key events we recommend you attend.

Digital Media Strategies – 3rd March 2015
MeasureCamp VI – 14th March 2015
Digital Cream – 26th March 2015
Top pick – MeasureCamp VI
The fact that it focuses on web analytics makes MeasureCamp a unique prospect among the list of digital events held in the UK this year. It comes highly recommended with the team at White confirming that if you want to spend a Saturday in March learning about web tracking, this is almost certainly the best place to do it!
Last September’s MeasureCamp was great. I found the sessions both challenging and enlightening, and met a really varied bunch of people. It’s a great way to discover new ways of doing things and inspires you to have a go at using data in a way you’ve never considered before.

BrightonSEO – 9th April 2015
Marketing Week Live – 29th April 2015
Adobe Summit London – 29th April 2015
Top pick – BrightonSEO
BrightonSEO is a two-a-year event that has become something of a pilgrimage for White, and the rest of the SEO community. It started a few years ago in a pub and has become a firm favourite for SEO fans and digital marketers alike. Not only is the event jam-packed with talks and roundtables (one of which we run), it also boasts a great pre-and-post-night atmosphere, with drinks and chats book-ending the main event.
Figaro Digital – 14th May 2015
Thinking Digital – 19th May 2015
International Search Summit – 19th May 2015
SMX London – 20th May 2015
Top pick – SMX London
SMX, or Search Marketing Expo, is a truly international affair. Held within 11 cities around the globe, when it stops in London in May it is well worth checking out. The event programme is managed by the team from SearchEngineLand.com and MarketingLand.com, more than enough evidence to suggest that the caliber of content at this event will be well worth the journey.
Digital Analytics Hub – 6th June 2015
Social Media World Forum – 8th June 2015
SAScon – 11th June 2015
Data IQ Summit – 16th June 2015
Interop 2015 – 16th June 2015
Top pick – SAScon
Some might say SAScon is the most significant search and digital conference held in the North. Hosted in Manchester, SAScon always boasts an enviable lineup of speakers and 2015 is expected to be no exception.

BrightonSEO – TBC
White Exchange – TBC
Top pick – White Exchange
OK, so it’s a shameless bit of self promotion but White Exchange is worth the plug. First off, it is held at the Ashmolean Museum which is the world’s first university museum, no-less. Secondly, 2014’s White Exchange was a huge success with speakers from White, Marin and Linkdex sharing the stage and chatting over a free lunch. At the end of the day you get the mooch around the museum, on a Monday, when it is closed to the public.
Ad:tech – 13th October 2015
SearchLove – 19th October 2015
eMetrics – 28th October 2015
Conversion Conference – 28th October 2015
Top pick – SearchLove
If your only wish in the world is to go and hear from the celebrities of the search and digital world, SearchLove is probably your safest bet. With a list of previous speakers that would make most marketers grab frantically for their autograph books, SearchLove draws a crowd for a reason. It’s usually expensive, but if you can justify it you are bound to love it!
Digital Marketing Show – 18th November 2015
