Engage Conference is a one-day digital marketing conference in Portland Oregon, presenting multiple informative learning tracks and panel sessions.

The conference is designed to provide expert insight into the latest strategies and technological advancements in digital marketing, including social media, content, UX/design, creative, advertising, SEO and paid media.

Our devout attendees and speakers will tell you that Engage is “one of the most important regional thought leadership events in the world” and that each year’s agenda is “forward-thinking and relevant”.

In addition to the world class programming, we place an emphasis on creating opportunities for speakers and attendees to meet, ask questions, and make important connections. We do all this for a just a fraction of what you would spend elsewhere.

Top Speakers

The biggest names in almost every niche of search and social media marketing will be at Engage Conference to present on everything from tried-and-true best practice fundamentals in technical and on-page SEO to bleeding edge techniques in mobile search, social media, and link building. Check out the fantastic speaker line-up for Engage 2017!

We were pleased that Matthew Gardner, CX Manager for the Portland Trail Blazers, and Cindy Krum, CEO and Founder of MobileMoxie joining us in 2017 as keynote speakers!

Intimate Networking

SEMpdx is proud of the reputation that Engage Conference has developed not only for the consistent quality of the presentations and speakers, but the high level of discussion among attendees during breaks and networking opportunities. Meet some of the most passionate search marketers in the country, share techniques, and expand your referral and client networks. Join us for a drink immediately following the Closing Keynote, with the Official Engage Conference After Party at 6:00pm at Punchbowl Social, a nearby venue featuring bowling, karaoke, darts, and more.

Extensive Q&A

We’ve taken attendee feedback from previous years’ events into account about expanding the length of each session and minimizing transition time between rooms. Each session now features a minimum of 15 minutes of question-and-answer time so you can help move the panel to discuss the topics that YOU want to hear about.

One-Third of the Price of other Top Conferences

As a not-for-profit organization, SEMpdx is all about reaching as many marketers and business owners as we can, and for that reason we’re able to keep Engage Conference ticket prices low. Even if you’re coming into Portland from out of town, you can almost certainly book a round-trip flight to Portland, two-night hotel stay, AND attend Engage Conference just for the price of admission to one of the other leading SEO conferences. While our one-day event does not allow for the full breadth of multi-day events like ClickZ Live and SMX, it’s often the perfect fit for the budgets and timelines of small companies.

    Why I’d like to attend to Engage? They serve artisan, hand-fed, Oregon-raised bacon during the breakfast season! Happy pigs produce happy bacon!

    Seriously they have some of the best speakers in the digital world and they film all the sessions that you miss so you don’t have to stress about choosing the wrong speakers.
