Why does Kelsey love State of Search?
State of Search is so special to me because the organizers truly go the extra mile to make sessions new, fresh, and actionable. Many other conferences have the same sessions every year, but I always learn something new at SoS. Plus Dallas is full of good food, and it’s great to see all my speaker friends each year that I come!
