Program Overview

The SEMPO Cities initiative launched in 2015 and replaced legacy SEMPO Local Groups and serves as the local presence engaging search marketers in local communities globally. SEMPO Cities was formed and continues to serve to build awareness and education around search at the local level through learning and networking events. Local networking is an excellent way to learn more about the industry and its latest developments, and to have a sense of community with other professionals in your area.

We’re always recruiting interested individuals to start a SEMPO Cities presence in their local area. Similar to a local chapter, but focused on events, we have many Cities continuing year after year.

Putting on an event can seem like a big undertaking, but we have a model that provides a lot of support and structure in addition to autonomy.

2019 SEMPO Cities Events

We’re underway with Cities events in 2019! Watch the SEMPO events page as local leadership teams post their events in markets around the world. With a wide range of networking and educational events, there’s likely an event coming soon to a city or region near you!

We have already had a successful event in Denver in January of 2019 and will have more to come including New York, Los Angeles, South Florida, and Kansas City. Stay tuned!
