A busy autumn, indeed.

The end of summer brings longer nights, cooler temperatures, and a return to conference season! This year, I’ve been lucky enough to be invited  to share some stories with social media and digital marketers around America in September and October! Here’s where I will be:


SocialFresh Conference – September 23-25, Tampa, FL

On September 23 and 24, I’ll be at Social Fresh Conference in Tampa! This year’s speaker list is outstanding! Featuring Jay Baer, Scott Monty, Chris Brogan, Twitter, HP, Patron, Priceline, Buffer, The Today Show, American Eagle and more. Social Fresh is one track, with no fluff — filled with highly actionable and practical content.  I’ll be one-third of the Power of Community Building workshop with Savannah Peterson of Speck Design, and Matt Singley of Singley + Mackie on the 23rd, so come hang out!

SocialFresh is one of my favorite conferences and I always get something useful out of it – both from the networking and the content! Register here!


OrlandoIX – October 2-6, Orlando, FL

Sort of a “super-conference” for the city Orlando, OrlandoiX features five power-packed days of dynamic keynotes, panels, exhibits, and entertainment that showcases leading advancements in entertainment technology, interactive media, and digital arts.  I’ll be keynoting the conference on as part of the Digital Expo on the last day, October 6.  Register here!

LIFT conference=LIFT, Simply Measured Conference, October 22, Seattle, WA

A new conference, from the team that brings you the Simply Measured suite of social reporting tools, their first conference is aiming to be practical too. It’ll be my first time in Seattle, so I’m excited about that!

From their website:

“We will have no celebrity speakers with fluff content, no vendor pitches of any kind, no “advance” sessions that feel like 101, and no “best practices” from five years ago. Everything shared will be high utility and up-to-date. You will learn things you can put to use as soon as you get back to your desk.”

Sounds good to me.  I’ll be speaking on October 22 in the afternoon.  Get your tickets here!

And if you’re coming to one of these conference and want to network (and talk like humans, without selling each other things 😉 ), feel free to reach out to me on Twitter at @matthewknell!

One of the best things about conferences is networking and I hope to see you at one of these great events!
