*OFFICIAL* SES NYC 2007 Party & Events Schedule

*Note: Updated April 9th, 2007* Now 12 Parties!


OK - Here it is. This is the thread that I will be updating with all information that I receive regarding parties, events and gatherings for the upcoming Search Engine Strategies Conference in New York City April 10 - April 13, 2007.

If you are a search engine or vendor events coordinator and are planning an official gathering or even an informal one that you would like me to promote, then send me a PM with all of the details that you would like included. If you are an attendee and you've heard of a great event, also feel free to send me a PM and I'll look into adding it to the list.


Sunday April 8th, 2007


Easter Sunday but many do arrive early (including myself) so if you're one of the early to arrive - meet up at the downstairs bar ('Lobby Lounge' near the reception desk). That way you can see who is arriving. Bridges - the bar around the corner is usually closed on Sunday evenings.

Joe - I love that you're showing some of the "private" parties on the schedule. It's helpful to realize when a Danny Sullivan or a Joe Morin isn't hanging around the bar where exactly they might be

Mystery Guest and I will see you there! We get in on Saturday night and plan to do more than a bit of sightseeing around the conference.

Even though I'll have 2 hours from landing at JFK, to the start of the IM-NY party at 7 - I'll be there with bells on (and perhaps a courtesy airline pillow)!

It's a shame to see the demise of Search Engines giving back to their customers and supporters in the form of a shindig. Too many stingy accountants and money-grabbing board members probably. What ever happened to the youthful soul of these companies?

Is it just me, or are there more invite-only parties this year than ever?

Keep checking back

Just as an FYI, I've already added three events since the official schedule went live this morning as event planners rushed to give me info (hey I've been waiting and it couldn't wait any longer)....so be sure to keep checking back here as this will be a working guide up to and even during the conference as changes are made and venues added.

I know of two more possibilities, one public and one private that I hope to get word on soon.

Post Cruel Tease

This is a cruel tease for those who wallow in unconnectedness...maybe the qualifications to get into the cool parties could be more tangible-like billing over a million in PPC or attaining high rankings for keywords which return over 50 million documents (where there are 3000 webpages returned for "allintitle:keyword.")

See ya' all in NYC.

Efficient Frontier dinner/bar-crawl clarification

Ours is a private party, but we'd definitely like to get interesting SEM people in attendance. The main reason we participate in SES is to learn about the industry we live in, so if you think you know an SEM thing or two and would like to attend, let me know.

Cool Mr. Cutts's personal concierge.

You guys and girls can pant at the doorway of the private parties if you want, but I'll be assuming another identity to get in.

Private parties are only for the brave!

Yeah, well, the funny thing is that I had no idea about that one private party you're referring to until I read it in this thread! Talk about private........
