Networking Opportunities at ‘Search Starts Here’ in Vegas
March 14, 2013 | Contributed by: Wesley Young
In addition to all the great speakers and workshops, our conference is a great opportunity to network with decision makers from some of the most influential companies in local search. We offer a variety of networking events ranging from formal, informal and everything in between. The events planned are as follows:
Conference Golf Tournament (Sunday, April 14)
Sponsored by Yellow Pages Group
This year’s conference golf tournament will be held at the beautiful Arroyo Golf Club nestled alongside the breathtaking Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas. Make some new connections and enjoy a nice relaxing round of golf on a course designed by Arnold Palmer himself. For just $250, you get 18 holes of golf, breakfast, transportation from the hotel and a chance to win some great prizes! You can sign up for golf when you register for our conference.
Women’s Round Table Event (Sunday, April 14)
Sponsored by Ponytale Talk and Global Business Therapy
Come and hear from Kimberli Lewis, President of the European Association of Data Base, Search and Directory Publishers (EASDP), for her talk titled, “10 Problems Women Face in the Workplace and their Similarity to Hot Dogs.” Yes, we know it sounds strange, but Kimberli offers some great insight into the topic.
Night in Black and White (Sunday, April 14)

Join us for a “Night in Black and White” as we honor the most innovative and creative work in local search during the Industry Excellence Awards.
