Location: La Manga, Spain
Date: Jun. 14 & 15
Website: SEO on the Beach
Speakers: TBC

After running about a decade’s worth of editions, SEO on the Beach organizer Sico de Andrés passed the baton to Iñaki Huerta—and you can look forward to more of the same talks, games, and “beachworking,” aka networking on the beach.

As one of last year’s sponsors, we even stirred conversation with a certain flamingo inflatable—which we ran a giveaway for:

The 2024 lineup hasn’t been announced, but past speakers include Lidia Infante, Aleyda Solis, Martin Splitt, Azeem Ahmad, and our very own Erik Sarissky.

Managing international websites and running global campaigns is tricky business. That’s exactly what ISS has built its conference around: how to position your brand in global markets.

Its 2024 agenda isn’t out yet, but if this year’s edition was any indication, you can expect talks across three tracks—international SEO, international content, and audience & paid.

Tickets include networking drinks and six months’ access to Webcertain’s self-learning platform.

Location: Chiang Mai, Thailand
Nov. 18 – 23
Chiang Mai SEO Conference
Speakers: TBC

The well-loved Chiang Mai SEO Conference is an annual gathering of over 800 SEO entrepreneurs, agency owners, and super affiliates.

After a two-year hiatus, the conference returned to the idyllic Thai city in 2023, and has confirmed a 2024 edition—with three days of workshops leading up to the two-day conference.

Just 13 tickets will go on sale in March, so it’s fastest fingers first:
