This year our east coast SearchLove conference is heading to a new home & a new city. 2020 will see SearchLove move just over 200 miles south to New York City. We’ve been hosting conferences in Boston for the last 9 years and it’s a city that holds a special place in our hearts (and our history).
Welcome to SearchLove New York 2020.
The conference & the venue
SearchLove New York will be happening on June 8 & 9, 2020, and what a venue and location we have in store for you. We’re heading to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to the Hotel Indigo. Williamsburg is a neighborhood that hosts some of New York’s best food and drinks, great shopping, fun outdoor spaces, and a thriving arts and music scene with views of the iconic Manhattan skyline. With the city a short subway ride away (the conference center is directly across the street from the Metropolitan Ave subway station,) you can experience everything New York City has to offer.
Inside the venue itself, we have a fully renovated conference space that when filled to capacity, will encapsulate all of the excitement and energy that attendees have come to expect from a SearchLove conference. If you need a little time to unwind, head up to the rooftop and you’ll find a pool that has views across the beautiful city skyline.
When do tickets go on sale?
Tickets will be available for purchase on Friday, December 13, 2019. At launch, we’ll be offering $500 off all tickets. This means you can get your SearchLove ticket from only $799. Tickets include:
- Access to both days at an intimate conference with top quality speakers.
- Breakfast, lunch, and refreshments. Our team works hard to ensure our attendees have delicious, high quality food provided for everyone (if you have allergies or restrictions, just let us know).
- Passes to networking evenings with our speakers, the Distilled team; and fellow attendees. Want to ask our speakers questions in person? This is your best opportunity.
- A special discount on rooms at the conference venue, with rooms at $219 a night (this is 30% cheaper than rooms in Boston last year).
Why the move?
For the last 9 years, Boston has been home to our east coast conference. We’re sure some of our regular SearchLove Boston attendees want to know why we’re moving.
Over the last few years, Boston hotel costs have been rapidly increasing. This makes a big difference to many of our delegates who have had to pay more and more to stay in the city. Last year, a stay in the Revere Hotel was setting delegates back over $340 per night. We received your feedback and we hear you. We’ve hosted conferences in New York before and a big part of the move is to get the best deal we can for our delegates. Our events team has negotiated a deal with the Hotel Indigo Williamsburg, securing rooms at a more affordable $219 a night.
You may also know we have offices in London, New York and Seattle, so it makes perfect sense for us to bring SearchLove where our team is based. Our New York team can’t wait to show off their city.
When will the line-up be announced?
We’ll be looking to make announcements early 2020. While we’re announcing this event earlier than usual because of the city change to give everyone a chance to plan, we are making sure our conference continues to be SEO focused while covering wider aspects of digital marketing and online trends as usual. You can get a good idea of the types of topics we’ll cover by looking at SearchLove San Diego’s 2020 schedule.
