Expo Hall, Swag Overload & Bonus Presentations
The Javits Center in New York City is this year’s home for SMX East because it’s the only venue big enough in the city to accommodate the sheer number of exhibitor booths, plus provide ample space
for theater presentations and networking spots.
You’re sure to pick up a ton of great swag, but even better, you might find a terrific new tool or platform to test out.
In addition to the theater presentations in the Expo Hall, there’s an entire track of added bonus sessions on Day 1 presented by sponsors.
You’ll hear case studies, data points and successful strategies implemented by these vendors.

Why not bring your
colleagues to share the load of practical tips and
tactics to implement?
