Both Local U and Moz are dedicated to providing great information for professionals. LocalUp Advanced, our first joint effort, is bringing together some of the most knowledgable folks in local for what promises to be the best local conference of the year.
We have all of the Local U folks (Aaron Weiche, David Mihm, Mike Ramsey, Will Scott, Mary Bowling, Ed Reese and myself), a ton of Moz foks (Pete Meyers, Rand), Google PLUS other great local practitioners like Darren Shaw, Dana DiTomasio and Cindy Crum all in one room for the whole day.
Well actually several rooms as we are doing afternoon breakouts as well. It promises to be an incredible event.
Here are a few samples of the topics:
