European Search Conferences in 2009

More for myself , I wanted to put together a list of European Search conferences taking place this year. These generally come under title Affiliate Marketing, Search Engine Marketing and Search Engine Optimisation conferences. I still on the fence whether to attend some of these or not. Most of these require travel and  I would need to take the best part a week off to attend. And I wonder about the level of content at these events.

I’m guessing that for most of these events that my level of expertise would leave me not learning that much. Sometimes I get the feeling that (especially the SEO conferences they) are aimed at companies who don’t know very much about the area.  The main attraction to such events for me would be the networking possibility.  Working on my own means that I don’t really see too many people face to face. Although there are a few prominent German SEO’s in Munich whom I have met from time to time.
