On Wednesday 2nd May 2018, Ricemedia put together their very first SearchBHM event. SearchBHM is a Digital Marketing event where creatives in the SEO, PPC, Social Media and Digital PR sectors all meet up, socialise and take tips from fellow professionals. Held at The Botanist on Temple Row, we decided there was a gap in Birmingham’s Digital Marketing community after attending some amazing events in London, Manchester and Leeds.
So, the Ricemedia team joined forces with other creative agencies across the West Midlands, and put Birmingham’s Digital Marketing scene in the spotlight. Even though it was our first ever SearchBHM, we were chuffed to see that it had SOLD OUT a week before. This shows there is an incredible demand for networking events and social gatherings within Birmingham’s ever-evolving Digital Marketing community.
Birmingham’s Brightest Digital Talents
Bringing together some of the city’s brightest digital talents, the country’s best digital speakers and industry professionals under one roof was a blast. It was made even better with great food, flowing drink (the hangover the day after – not so much!) and excellent conversation.
With mind blowing talks from headliners such as Nick Wilsdon, Global Search Product Owner of Vodafone and Prezzybox owner Zak Edwards, we were pretty excited. The lineup also featured dynamic speaking from our very own Head of Search, Laura Hogan, Rachel Costello from Deepcrawl and Luke Boxall from SimilarWeb. What made these talks so valuable is that the attendees left with a number of invaluable and actionable takeaways. The speakers delivered nuggets of information about everything from how to increase your ROI to preparing yourself after Google’s Mobile First Indexing.
