WAKEFIELD, Mass. – June 24, 2015 – SEMPO, the world’s largest nonprofit organization serving the search and digital marketing industry and the marketing professionals engaged in it, today announced the date and location for its first global in-person event: the SEMPO 2016 Member Forum will take place in San Diego, March 10-11.

For this inaugural event, SEMPO members will join their marketing professional peers at The Westin San Diego Gaslamp Quarter. The conference will provide attendees with actionable information and insights to improve performance and enhance professional success. The face-to-face setting will provoke progressive thinking, offer comparative discussions about new tools and techniques, and promote sharing of search marketing and social media best practices, as well as delivering ample networking opportunities.

In order to stand-out and deliver value from the very first event, the SEMPO Member Forum is inclusively developing its agenda: our array of search marketing and social media industry professionals are invited to suggest sessions on the topics most important to them, based on their areas of recent “live” expertise. Proposals can include solo presentations, panel discussions, or workshop formats, and will likely represent a true cross section of industry verticals and case studies spanning digital marketing channels.

“The first SEMPO Member Forum will be an exciting event, bringing together practitioners from all over the world, for a program tailored to their expressed needs and preferences. We invite all interested parties to submit their ideas for content, and we look forward to sharing their innovative suggestions,” said Mike Grehan, ‎CMO & Managing Director at Acronym Media and SEMPO Chairperson. “We also encourage any industry professionals who are not yet SEMPO members to join, participate in the Member Forum, and take advantage of all the other membership benefits offered throughout the year.”

Conference sponsorships are available, in a range of categories and packages. Member Forum sponsors will gain significant visibility for their organizations, demonstrate their support for SEMPO in facilitating the international exchange of information relating to search marketing, and contribute to the success of SEMPO and the Member Forum.

SEMPO activities center on education, networking, and its well-respected research. To support its educational mission, the organization provides a professional-level webinar series, a “101” webinar series, and face-to-face education programs delivered at the local level that provide opportunities for members to network together throughout the world. In 2015, a special highlight will be SEMPO Cities Month in October, focusing on the SEMPO Cities initiative: all SEMPO city groups will promote and execute local events simultaneously.
