There are several SEO conferences held each year. So, which one should you attend?
If you are undecided, I would recommend the annual Chiang Mai SEO conference in Thailand. Chiang Mai is considered the capital of SEO in the world. Besides, the lifestyle in the city is an excellent attraction for digital nomads.
CSMEO brings together experts from all around the world. They get to learn from industry leaders and network with fellow marketers. The bonus part is that they get to do all this while enjoying the rich cultural heritage of the city.
This conference should be in your bucket list if you are looking to up your digital game and travel to a new destination. Have a look at all you should expect from the two-day event.
