Sponsors & Raffle

Each event I try to hold a raffle, which means I hassle SEO tool providers for things, and sometimes they give in.

This event would be possible without them

GOLD SPONSOR – Dan @ Screaming Frog for funding the basement , and providing a years license for both the crawling tool and the server log analysis tool.

PLATINUM SPONSOR – Tony ‘link boi‘ Randall got excited and printed some SEO)) themed stickers and sent them all the way from the U-S-A:

Thanks Tony.

LIQUID SPONSOR – Deepcrawl (with particular thanks to Jennifer for continuing to help make this event less unpleasant) ensured everyone was suitably hydrated throughout the event. They were also kind enough to throw in a year’s license to the raffle.

TIRELESS SPONSOR – Patrick from Sitebulb, the crawl tool for discerning SEOs for once again providing two licenses and never once complaining about the ROI of this event.

UNEXPECTED SPONSOR – Tim was cool enough to offer five 6 month advanced accounts for SEO industry bar raising tool ahrefs after I was shameless enough to ask for sponsorship.

ADDITIONAL UNEXPECTED SPONSORS – Luke opened a coffee tab on arrival and Julia bought everyone breakfast. Thank you.

I haven’t done the raffle yet, sue me (please don’t sue me).

Can I speak at the next ohgmcon?

Most of the pitches I receive haven’t read the rules.

  • DM me on Twitter.
  • Have an idea for a talk that you haven’t given elsewhere before. If it would work for a guest post here, it would work for a talk.

Do not be afraid.

When is the next ohgmcon?

This is all according to the BrightonSEO website footer:

  • ohgmcon5 : 11th April 2019
  • ohgmcon6 : 12th September 2019

This conference is parasitic. Thanks Kelvin.
