SES New York - Great Conference!

Just about getting my time clock back now after flying back to the UK at the weekend from New York.

It turns out that SES New York was the biggest yet of the Search Engine Strategies events. Total attendance was about 6,000 which was 50% greater than 2004. Also, paid attendance was 1,734 which was 52% greater than 2004.

Also the exhibiting companies liked what they saw as 70% of them have booked space for the 2006 show already!

There was a well balanced programme with something for everyone and a great chance to meet people whose names I had seen on the forum sites and in newsletters.

All in all a very worthwhile trip which, judging by the number of people attending, showed just has quickly the search engine industry is growing. It makes you realise by listening to the presentations and talking to people that we have only just started to scratch the surface of what "search" can do for us in the future.
