Swivel is only a few weeks away! Here are the details you need to know…
We have some exciting news to share about our 2018 speaker line-up, new session format, and registration discounts! Swivel is happening Monday, October 8 through Tuesday, October 9.
This year at Swivel we are doing things a little differently with the debut of the UNConference on Day Two.
Attendees will be able to directly interface with session speakers in a unique way. Learn more about this exciting feature in our Day Two roster.
Last year at Swivel was a huge hit! Several hundred marketers, business gurus and tech junkies from around the world flocked to beautiful Bend, Oregon last year for the SEO summit. Hosted in the iconic Old Mill District, Swivel empowered and educated individuals with high caliber keynote speakers, industry insights and sampling of cutting-edge tech.
Now it’s almost time to do it again! Few other digital marketing conferences offer what Swivel offers, action packed speakers, multi-track breakout sessions so you can tailor your learning experience, and much more.
Did we mention that Sunday and Monday nights have networking parties? Complimentary hors-d’oeuvres and beverages will be served for attendees.
