Australia’s leading search marketing event, Search Summit, to become Search Marketing Expo – SMX Sydney in 2008

Redding, CT USA and Sydney, Australia (PR Web) August 20, 2007 – The Search Marketing Expo -  SMX conference series has added Sydney, Australia to its 2008 schedule. SMX Sydney will be the new name for Australia’s leading search marketing show, Search Summit, as the result of an agreement reached by SMX-producer Third Door Media and Sydney based Search Strategies.

“We’re privileged to have a partner who shares our vision of providing conference delegates with outstanding educational and networking experiences,” said Third Door Media President Chris Elwell. “Satisfied and qualified delegates are the key ingredients for creating a vibrant marketplace, and SMX Sydney will benefit from momentum Barry Smyth and his team created with Search Summit events,” Elwell added.

“Search Summit was about making sure that Australian search practitioners had an educationally focused event. The vision that Third Door Media has for the Search Marketing Expo – SMX brand is tightly aligned with my philosophy on what makes a superior search marketing event,” said Search Strategies Director Barry Smyth. “The Third Door Media content team of Danny Sullivan and Chris Sherman will provide invaluable support to SMX Sydney events,” Smyth added.
