Last week saw the inaugural SAScon event at The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester. SAScon stands for ‘Search – Analytics – Social Media Conference’.

YouTube’s Bruce Daisley delivered the opening speech and was followed by some of the biggest names in Search, Analytics and Social Media. Covering subjects such as The Online Video Revolution, Advanced Link Building and Who is Best to Exploit the Social Media Opportunity, sessions were split between presentations and panel group discussions.

The conference culminated in a comedy night at The Frog and Bucket, complete with networking, pie and peas and a few sore heads in the morning.

It was a welcome event, both in terms of having the space and time to discuss a relatively new and growing phenomenon and in the fact that it took place in Manchester, highlighting the north’s strong digital presence.

Hats off to the organisers for a well run and informative event. Looking forward to next year’s conference.
