LocalU In-Person Events in 2024!
The Leading Edge of Local Search Seminars

LocalU In Person Events for 2024

This year, we're doing LocalU in person events a bit differently.  Call it an A/B test if you'd like - or a "choose your own adventure," where the ending is stellar Local SEO content, taught by industry leading experts, at a location that fits your time and budget.

Our consistent feedback since 2020 has been focused on the cost & convenience to travel to in-person events. To that end, we've overhauled our events in an attempt to serve more of the Local Search & SEO community - while keeping costs down.

Involving more in-house speakers allows us to keep travel & speaker fee costs low - this is directly reflected in ticket pricing - which we've slashed 62% when compared to our last event in Toronto.

In 2024, we're offering nearly the same Local Search & SEO sessions in 2 different locations.  This is a FOMO free zone!  You can pick the time and location that works best for you, and you won't miss out on information if you attend one, but not the other.  Presenting the same information allows us to keep costs down on speakers and presentation creation - which is a significant cost as each presentation can take 20+ hours to research, outline, create, design & practice.

So in 2024 you pick from:

Detroit, MI

June 24, 2024

Where:
The Eastern
3434 Russell St, Suite 501
Detroit, MI 48207

When:
Monday, June 24, 2024
8:45am to 5pm

New York, NY

September 17, 2024

Where:
Wix Playground
100 Gansevoort St
New York, NY 10014

When:
Tuesday, September 17, 2024
8:45am to 5pm

You read that right... Tickets are only $299 for the entire day.  No, that's not a typo.

We're partnering with some amazing hosts and venues in each location in an attempt to keep our costs down.  Breakfast and lunch are included, all the sessions are included, and our sponsors will be available to chat about services and tools throughout the day.

The "catch" if there is one - space is limited.  In Detroit, we have 130 seats available, in New York - just 75 seats.  Tickets will go fast at this price point - so book your "adventure" early!
