Who’s Joining Us Onstage at SearchLove?

For the last few months, we’ve been seeking out the most inspiring leaders in the industry. We’re now pleased to reveal a few of the faces who’ll be taking to the stage at our SearchLove conference in Boston (April 30th to May 1st).


Dana DiTomaso

Partner at KickPoint, Dana joined us for the first time at SearchLove San Diego in 2014. She was a huge hit with our audience who soaked up a ton of actionable advice on how to take down the local competition. This time Dana will be sharing her expertise in paid search with a focus on local.  

Ian Lurie

A firm SearchLove favourite, Ian – CEO of Portent – will be returning to Boston this April. Ian always amazes us with his in-depth knowledge, and we can expect no less this year. We’ll reveal details of his session in a few weeks’ time.

Brian Massey

The self-proclaimed Conversion Scientist likes to dress the part! He promises to both educate and entertain – making him a perfect fit for SearchLove. We can’t wait to hear his vital lessons from the world of conversions...and to see his outfit too, of course!


Rand Fishkin

A real visionary, Rand has long been sharing his original thinking on the SearchLove stage. You can be sure to hear the very latest in the online marketing from Mr Fishkin.  

Bridget Randolph

Every day we’re exposed to new ways of thinking, new methods and new tools. But sometimes we need to take a step back and review. Distilled’s super-smart Bridget will be reminding us of the fundamentals of our industry.

Craig Hughes

Craig joins us from Unruly, the leading programmatic platform for social video advertising. Here he heads up the product team and boasts invaluable insight into this fast-growing area. Get ready for lessons in measuring video performance, and in working out the return on an investment.

Tim Wilson

Analytics sessions are always at the top of the feedback ratings for SearchLove attendees. This year we’re excited to be welcoming Tim Wilson to the stage. An absolute pro when it comes to analytics, Tim has been working in this field for over 12 years. He’ll be sharing his knowledge of how marketers can more effectively work with data.

Justin Briggs

As CEO of his own boutique agency, Justin has a wealth of expertise to share. His previous SearchLove sessions have been loaded with tips and actionable advice. This year will be no different. We’re still honing the details of Justin’s topic, but you can expect a ton of ideas to take back to the office.

Eppie Vojt

Last time Eppie spoke for us, he showed real grace when interrupted by a long fire alarm (fingers crossed that doesn’t happen again!). The VP of SEO at Red Ventures will take us through the steps to optimise for profitability, sharing his secrets on how Red Ventures have nailed this strategy for their own clients.

Amanda McGowan

As an SEO and Analytics Associate at SEER, Amanda is a whizz when it comes to using analytics to improve search visibility, user experience and to achieve overall business objectives. We’re currently working alongside Amanda to decide exactly what will be most valuable for her to cover, but we can assure you this session will be packed with takeaways for you to implement for your own search campaigns.

Craig Bradford

VP of our London office, Craig will be heading stateside to present his take on ‘creating your digital strategy’. We all know how hard strategy can be, but there are ways that you can approach this challenge to avoid those late nights spent scratching your head and making tough decisions.

We’ll be announcing the rest of the speakers and more information on topics in the next few weeks. To go ahead and buy your ticket while we’re still on early bird prices ($899 instead of $1099), head to our events page.

Along with two days of talks, the conference will bring topic tables, site clinics and networking, not to mention the delicious fresh food and fantastic parties! You can email us at events@distilled.net with any questions or add a comment below this post. We’d love to hear from you!
