After missing the shuttle to the conference center from the hotel, I found two folks to share a cab with. A fellow from Shopping.com and a nice lady who is reported for Loren at Search Engine Journal.
I went through registration, bumped into Tamar and grabbed a soda. I then sat next to Chris Sherman and we fought over the free wifi.
Then as we sat, the music selection before the first session started, seriously rocked. Really good music.
Then they introduced Danny Sullivan, the host of the Search Marketing Expo conference. It was an exciting greeting.
Danny then comes up to the stage, with a headset microphone. He gives the introduction and so forth. Basically, thanking sponsors, explaining how this conference will differ, thanking everyone for coming and finally going over the sessions and events.
Danny also thanked Mike Grehan for giving him the name, SearchMarketingExpo.com. He then goes into the other shows out there, more details at http://searchmarketingexpo.com/.
That is all from me, Tamar is going to take over from here and cover the rest of this session with Matt Cutts and Danny. Boy am I tired.
