There is a brand-new networking event in the York SEO and digital marketing industry. The first SEO York event will take place on the 27th of June at the York Priory Street Centre with a 6pm start and a 9pm finish, and will offer the opportunity for those in the Yorkshire and the Humber region to not only to network, but also for experts to share ideas and tips for others on a number of topics in SEO York, such as generating more traffic to your website, and creating higher quality leads for both you and your business.

What to expect

The atmosphere of these meet ups will be of a relaxed nature with both food and drink being provided, making this an ideal event to attend for anyone new to networking. These type of events can help generate opportunities and grow your number of contacts as you meet people from a diverse range of roles and experiences.

SEO York will be a moderately sized event, with up to 30 people attending and will be the place to go for both SEO and general digital marketing advice, with the aim to get people to share their ideas and what has worked for them. We at ReachAI are excited to hear from other people from a search engine optimisation and digital marketing background and though that creating this new, unique event would be ideal for local businesses to share ideas.

How it all started

This event was created on the back of a successful visit to Buy Yorkshire, the largest B2B conference in the north of England. Everyone had a wonderful time at this event at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, and met a wide range people from businesses from all over the country, including both SMEs (Small to Medium Enterprises) and larger firms. Buy Yorkshire is an annual event hosted by The (fantastic) Yorkshire Mafia who often hold events covering the likes of Leeds, York, Wakefield and more. Whilst we did identify other more York focused groups for networking, most of these either required a fee or could be too formal and could appear rather intimidating for either first timers. Therefore, we wanted to create an ideal event that everyone can enjoy and with a recent boom in digital firms in the city, we thought that it would be a great idea to introduce not only ourselves but help others to expand their network and learn from each other.
