The Industry’s First Technical SEO Conference

The list of marketing conferences is endless. There are events dedicated to nearly every vertical, interest, and trend.

What type of conference won’t you find? A technical SEO conference that challenges even developers and code jockeys. Despite the long list of search conferences, there hasn’t been an event exclusively dedicated to technical SEO.

With TechSEO Boost, Catalyst has changed that!

TechSEO Boost 2018

For developers and advanced SEO specialists.

On November 29th, 2018 Catalyst held TechSEO Boost 2018, the first industry event 100% dedicated to technical SEO. With advances in technology and the intense pace of technological change, technical SEO has become more important than ever. This is the conference for you if you’re looking to up your technical SEO game.

TechSEO Boost is a complimentary event that is perfect for technical SEOs, advanced search marketers, and programmers. The 2017 event featured top-tier speakers from Google, IBM, Airbnb, and many others, and the 2018 event featured an equally distinguished lineup of industry experts.
