As some of you are aware, myself and many search engine marketing industry related persons in the PA, NJ, MD, NY, DE, VA gather roughly once a month in King of Prussia for drinks, dinner and networking. We call ourselves the Internet Marketers of the Delaware Valley. We’ve driven in thunderstorms, snow storms and some traveled 2 hours or more to make a gathering!

After months of planning, one of the outcomes of our relaxed, friendly gatherings is Search Camp – Philly. Taking a lead from last year’s successful Pod Camp – Philly, this Fall, Temple University gave us space over the weekend of September 6 & 7th, 2008 to hold Search Camp.

There are 4 tracks, with 30 sessions available from basic to intermediate and also 2 advanced tracks. Topics range from SEO, PPC, Social Media, Public Relations on the Web, Brand and Reputation Management, Analytics, Usability, and Site Clinics.

Some of the speakers lined up so far:

* Debbie Weil – Author of the Corporate Blogging Book
* Kevin M. Ryan – Vice President, Global Content Director for Search Engine Strategies and Search Engine Watch
* Geoff Livingston – Author of Now is Gone
* Wil Reynolds – President of Seer Interactive
* Liana “Li” Evans – Director of Social Media Strategies at Social Conversations, Owner of Search Marketing Gurus
* Greg Myers – Partner – VP of Operations, Campaign Grid
* Kim Krause Berg – Usability Expert & Owner of Cre8asite Forums
plus many more.

For two days of exposure and one on one contact with well known industry professionals and consultants, the cost is $21 for the entire weekend! I suggest you hurry and register because there only 388 seats left, the last I checked.

Expenses are being offset by sponsors such as Cre8asiteforums.

Sponsorships are available and vary if price.
