Share15: September 21 to 23, Westin St. Francis, San Francisco
Following the outstanding success of Share14 and a record-breaking year of growth and marketing innovation at BrightEdge, I am delighted to announce Share15. This year, the industry’s leading, brand-driven, peer-to-peer content marketing and SEO event takes place on September 21 to 23 at the Westin St. Francis, right in the heart of San Francisco.
Share15: the brand-centric, must-attend event of the year
This year at Share15, we are setting the industry bar even higher with a larger venue, multiple tracks, visionary keynotes and numerous networking events and opportunities that only a Share conference can provide. We expect more than 1,000 people to attend this year, and already have speakers lined up from the world’s largest brands. The organic content marketing industry is booming, and at Share15, global brands, qualified practitioners, and market thought leaders will join forces with technology pioneers to exchange insights into performance marketing strategies that shape the industry.
Building on the success of our peer-to-peer community at Share15
Share14 set a new standard in the industry event space. Over the course of 2 days, a community of more than 1,000 digital thought leaders, search and content marketing practitioners, and technology titans shared insights, case studies and visionary tales while making invaluable peer-to-peer connections to help power their success. At Share14, more than 60 experienced professionals from leading brands such as Macy’s, Adidas, 3M, Hilton, Marriott, Time and Experian shared the stage with search powerhouses Google, Microsoft and Bing, technology leaders like Adobe, and social titans Twitter and Facebook. Attendees and speakers discussed topics ranging from content to global and mobile marketing, scaling SEO, understanding the future of search, and much more.

Announcing the Share15 program
This year, Share15 will bring together the brightest minds, the biggest names and the best brands alongside the industry’s largest technology innovators. Over the coming weeks, we will be announcing key speakers, sharing key themes, adding new innovation-led tracks and unveiling some A-list keynote speakers. Share’s program content is developed in conjunction with our partners, client brands and industry thought-leaders. Our focus is not only delivering inspiring content, but also ensuring that every session is jam-packed with information, case studies, best practice guidance and actionable takeaways for peers.
The Share program is built around three core principles that are fundamental to BrightEdge:
Inspiration and Innovation
Keep pace of change, stay ahead of the curve and help shape the future of your industry. From the latest trends to industry and product announcements, be the first to hear from an A-list of inspirational speakers at Share15. If you want to stay one step ahead of the innovation curve, then Share15 is a must attend.
- At Share15 practitioners learn not just from their peers, but also from leading search and content platforms like Facebook, Google, Twitter and YouTube.
- Share15 is where news is made and shared. Leading analysts, publications and reporters across the digital, content and technology space come to Share to hear the latest from the BrightEdge community. Check out this event coverage here:
Community and Collaboration
Share15 brings together the highest concentration of brand marketers, thought-leaders and technology executives in this industry, and is the only event in the industry that focuses 100 percent on peer-to-peer learning and collaboration. Our networking events are where valuable conversations are had, business alliances are formed and new, innovative ideas are shared. Share15 is an investment that BrightEdge makes in the community. We are committed to delivering insights at scale, and with quality top of mind.
"The passion of the speakers plus the great networking conversations brings value you're hard pressed to find at some of the broader industry conferences" -Lauren MacPhail, Director of SEO and Organic Content, Macys.com
Insights and Action
No other event in the industry offers this level of insight for brands to implement ideas right away at their own companies. That’s because Share focuses on practical, hands-on insight, not theory, targeted to the challenges that your brand faces. You’ll get tips from big brands just like you that have experience and results implementing strategy. This is different from other events that put just “personalities” on stage. All content created at Share15 is objectively driven with a “zero tolerance” policy for subjective material. All content must be backed by results, data and valuable tips for practitioners in the audience. Only the best brand speakers are accepted to speak at Share15 with zero sales pitches allowed.
"I really like how Share provides real examples and stories that anyone in this industry can either leverage or relate to." -Ngia Vang, Senior Digital Marketing Manager, Experian Consumer Direct
