There’s little having a page dedicated to marketing events in Hong Kong in 2020 for obvious reasons – COVID-19.
However, digital marketing events and conferences are coming back with a vengeance in 2021 onwards.
Update! In 2021 it seems that we’ve left off where we were in 2020 regarding conferences going ahead, i.e. they basically aren’t.
I Will Learn
Are SEO Conferences In Hong Kong Going Ahead?
When I refer to “SEO Conferences” I am mostly referring to Digital Marketing Conferences and events. Typically SEO is baked-into Internet Marketing events.
Some Digital Marketing Conferences Scheduled For 2021
Like most things in 2021, make sure you check that these conferences are actually going ahead as planned.
5 SEO Events To Attend In 2021
- Rise 2021
- Technology For Marketing Asia 2021
- WFA Global Marketer Week
- The Martech Summit Hong Kong 2021
- DigiMarCon Singapore 2021 (This one is in Singapore)
Hong Kong SEO Events: Is It Worth Attending Them?
For the most part I’d say…yes.
SEO Hong Kong is a cottage-industry that is booming, especially during the COVID-crisis in that we are seeing a massive pivot to everything going digital.
Pro’s Of Attending Conferences
- Fantastic way to network;
- Learn some new skills;
- Get clients, leads or employment opportunities
Con’s Of Attending Conferences
- There can be a lot of “hot-air”, i.e. BS content;
- Expensive and virtual events just don’t quite cut it.
I occasionally speak at SEO Conferences; the ones I really love are the more growth hacking types of conferences and the slightly more “blackhat” events – but that’s just personal preference.
The Past, Present, And Future Of SEO Conferences In Hong Kong
When COVID hit the streets back in January and February (in earnest) in Europe and ASIA/US then we saw a massive cancellation of all types of conferences and events worldwide, it wasn’t of course just a Hong Kong thing.
What we saw afterwards was the merger of online and traditional offline conference structures. this new format for organising conferences might become the standard until we have a vaccine for covid.
Anyway, the good news for us is that digital marketing conferences in 2021 in Hong Kong are (just) back and that is good news for several reasons.
Hong Kong is a small city and is even smaller with regards to industry niches such as digital marketing and SEO – so – all the more reason to get stuck into events.
SEO events in Hong Kong are back with several previous digital marketing conferences that have been organized in Hong Kong over the years.
I have created a resource that lifts upcoming Hong Kong SEO events and conferences and I highly recommend that you attend at least one or more this year.
I do not have any strict criteria for adding events to the digital marketing events directory that I built except for two things, firstly that the event has SEO and internet marketing content, and that it is physically based in Hong Kong, whether it’s being virtual or physical.
Do You Have An Event To Add?
Let me know if you have an event to add to the directory which is free to do so.
