It was bound to happen… the new decade has barely begun (for us Minnesotans, likewise for winter… *shivers uncontrollably*) and already, the aimClear crew is in the throws of an über-busy schedule chock-full of new projects, exciting expansion, and international industry events out the wazoo. Our 2011 conference calendar looms enormous on the horizon, and we’re stoked to say that this year, our event agenda comprises a harmonious blend of familiar functions and first-time events.
While our crew is still ninja-combat battling over proactively compromising who gets to go to what, let’s have a peek at what’s on our speaking engagement & press pass plates. (P.S.- If you’ll be attending any of these events, be sure to say hi. We don’t bite. Without provocation.)
OMMA Global | San Francisco, CA | February 28-March 1
As quickly as February’s come, it’s nearly gone– but not before a jaunt over to sunny San Francisco for OMMA Global. This event showcases a star-studded line-up of presenting companies including PayPal, Expedia, Microsoft, CBS, Yahoo, eBay, The Weather Channel, GM, the Gap, Pepsi, Walmart, Nike, and Macy’s, and an audience composed of everyone from advertisers to executives, buyers to sellers. Our own Marty Weintraub (@aimClear
) and Manny Rivas (@mannyrivas
) will team up to share tips & tactics on Deadeye Video SEO & Winning Universal SERPs,
a must-attend event for sure.

SES NY | New York City, NY | March 22-24
They say that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. That’s true, if lion = SMX West, and lamb = SES New York. Yes, after San Jose, aimClear will shoot clear across the country to the city that never sleeps, New York, New York. Search Engine Strategies is an event that holds a special place in our calendar’s heart, and we’re looking forward to rounding out the month with the SES gang. From the aimClear team, Lauren (@beebow
