Celebrate The Power Of Search With Us At #TheLandys Awards Celebration


As the entry deadline for the inaugural Search Engine Land Awards fast approaches, we have a few exciting announcements to share with the search community about the awards celebration.

2015 Search Engine Land Awards Title Sponsor

Our team is thrilled to announce that Google AdWords has officially come on board as the leading sponsor for our inaugural industry awards program!


Additional sponsorship opportunities are still available for the awards celebration.

Awards Celebration @SMX East 2015

Traditionally, the After Dark cocktail party at our Search Marketing Expo event in NYC has been a two-hour affair, and the search community has raised more than $60,000 in total for charity at these events over the years.

With all profits from awards entry fees, sponsorships and event tickets sold going to our two selected charities, we’re aiming for our biggest single event donation ever, thanks to Google AdWords and supporting partners.

It also means that as promised, this year’s After Dark party will be bigger and better than ever, with an added hour to accommodate arrivals and opening cocktails before the awards ceremony begins.

Venue: BB King’s Blues Club in Times Square

Search Engine Land Awards

Close to the official SMX conference hotel (the Sheraton) and in the middle of the midtown mecca, The Landy Awards will take over the marquee at the famous blues club for the night.

With a legendary venue like this, we knew we had to kick up the entertainment a few notches and bring in a live band. So pack your dancing shoes!

Live Music Performance By…

After the awards ceremony concludes, we’ll keep the celebration going with hours of high-energy live music from New York City favorites, 45 Riots!

With a diverse playlist spanning multiple music genres, featuring original music mixed with modern hits and updated classics with a fresh spin, there’s going to be something for everyone to enjoy.

Here are a few sample mashup videos for you to check out:
