Clancy ChildsThe keynote speakers for Manchester’s search, analytics and social media conference (SAScon) have been announced for 2013, and they include some of the biggest and best in the industry.

The event, which is set to take place on 6th and 7th June 2013, will be held at MMU Business School. Over 300 delegates are expected to attend the event, so it’s sure to be the number one conference for those working or interested in the digital industry.

SAScon’s keynote speakers for 2013 include  Clancy Childs and John Veichmanis, two people that are most definitely in the know.

As Google Analytics’ product manager, Childs is sure to be able to answer everyone’s burning questions concerning the use of this integral piece of kit. Meanwhile, Veichmanis will be talking on the first day of the conference and will be providing insight into his area of expertise as Expedia’s VP for Global Paid Search.

Richard Gregory,  one of SAScon’s founders and the chief operating officer of Latitude, said: “This keynote line-up really is our best yet. Both the speakers and the brands they represent show how SAScon has grown, and it’s rewarding for what is essentially still a grassroots project – run for and by the digital community.

“The keynote panel is always hotly anticipated. Having these huge brands represented and in a room together should be incredibly insightful. I’m sure there will be points of difference.”

The event is sponsored by  Manual Link Building, Melbourne Server Hosting, Marin Software and MajesticSEO, and full details of speakers will be announced via social media and on the official site.
