HERE ARE THOROUGHLY MODERN MARKETING’S PICKS FOR TOP MARKETING EVENTS IN APRIL:
SearchLove Boston is a two day conference which brings together some of the most forward-thinking leaders in online marketing.

Along with the sessions, the whole conference is aimed at helping you to get the most out of your time away from the office. Lunch time topic tables, one-on-one site clinics and a networking party or two mean that there’s ample opportunity to get to know your fellow attendees and the speakers.
