New digital marketing event launches in Cardiff

A new meet-up for digital marketing and technology professionals working in Cardiff has launched.

Cardiff SEO Meet is being organised by Steve Morgan, a freelance SEO consultant based in South Wales. He also writes for digital marketing site State of Digital.

It’ll cover search engine optimisation (SEO) as well as other digital marketing topics, and is targeted at marketers, businesses and SEO beginners.

The first meet-up has been confirmed for the evening of May 19th and will take place in the upstairs of Urban Tap House in Cardiff. Attendees can sign up here.

There’ll be three talks over the course of the night, although the full details are yet to be confirmed. However, they’ll cover Google Analytics, eBay and Amazon.

Steve started the meet-up due to the lack of good digital marketing events in Cardiff. He said: “There are a lot of great tech meetups in South Wales already, covering entrepreneurship, software development, design, UX and more – but there’s nothing for SEO.

“There have been a couple of digital marketing meetups over the years, but they tend to be quite general and often gravitate towards social media marketing topics. So I wanted to start something that focused on SEO in particular.
“Cardiff SEO Meet is important because SEO especially is something that changes regularly. It’s a battle to keep on top of what’s going on sometimes (even for me – and I work in it full-time)! So the meetup should be handy for keeping on top of SEO best practice, learning new tips, seeing how SEO ties in with other areas of digital marketing, etc.”
