The inaugural UnGagged event at Caesars Palace, Vegas was a huge success with everyone who attended praising and recommending the event as a must-attend SEO / DM conference. Speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and attendees alike all benefited from the fantastic shared and actionable content and wonderful networking opportunities. The bar was set very high but the UnGagged team fully intend to raise that level at every subsequent event. Again, thanks for all those who came to Vegas, we hope to see you in London. The overwhelmingly positive response from the speakers has resulted in many requesting to speak again at UnGagged London May 16-18. We couldn't invite them all back but there will be a few familiar faces returning to UnGagged in London namely: Joe Sinkwitz aka Cygnus SEO (the guy who wore the penguin outfit) Jacob Hagberg (the guy who was mobbed after his session) Jerry West (the guy who sat on the stage) Akiva Ben Ezra (the guy who handed you monetization from YouTube on a plate) John Limbocker (the big man who gave you RainMaker) Murray Newlands (the guy who ran the ‘super star’ panel) Loren Baker (the tall guy and founder of SEJ, one of the ‘super star’ panel) Thomas Smale aka Meathead (the British man who shared how to build and sell a site for over a million dollars) Matthew Woodward (the young Brit who shared his methods on making a lot of money through blogging) All these guys made a big impression in Vegas so we are delighted that they are returning for London, but of course we need some new blood to keep UnGagged unique (please step up anyone who wants to be considered - we have a few spaces left, Call for Speakers). Here are some of the other awesome speakers we have gathered: John Rampton - is president at Adogy, editor at large of Search Engine Journal and a frequent contributor to Entrepreneur.com and Huffington Post who was recently voted the 3rd most influential person online.
