Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 30, 2011
Attendees at the International Search Summit Seattle in June will have the opportunity to hear from leading figures at Baidu and Yandex, who will share valuable insights into running Chinese and Russian web campaigns.
China and Russia are two of the largest and fastest growing internet markets in the world, and are also two countries where Google has failed to dominate the search market. Baidu and Yandex are clear market leaders in China and Russia respectively, where local language and cultural knowledge has made them first choice for many web users in those markets.
Running alongside SMX Advanced, the International Search Summit focuses specifically on topics relating to international and multilingual search and social media marketing and provides advice, insights and techniques for organisations targeting markets outside the US.
Andy Atkins-Krüger, CEO of WebCertain and Chair of the Summit, says, “The opportunities for businesses in China and Russia are huge – and increasing everyday. As leaders in those markets, there is nobody better placed than Baidu and Yandex to educate delegates on how to tap into those opportunities and successfully target the local audience”.
“This is the first time Baidu and Yandex will speak at the same event, and offers delegates a unique opportunity to increase their knowledge of these two important global markets, and the main search players in them”.
Other speakers already confirmed for International Search Summit Seattle are Dave Lloyd, Global SEO Manager for Adobe and Search-Usability expert Shari Thurow.
Super Early Bird Rates are available until April 2nd, with Early Bird Prices running through April 30th. Combo tickets for SMX and ISS are also available at http://searchmarketingexpo.com/advanced/register
