If you are anything like me, you look for conferences and events for opportunities for further learning.

More than likely you have come across BIG events in the United States such as MozCon, Pubcon & Digital Summit. On the other side of the Atlantic Ocean there superb events in the UK such as BrightonSEO & SMX London & Learn Inbound.

Whilst I would recommend if you have the chance to get to these events, flying to the USA, UK & Europe from Australia is hardly a cheap exercise. Worthwhile, but certainly not cheap!


Thankfully there is an increasing number of conferences & events around search marketing and SEO being held across Australia. Below is a list of SEO events across Australia, I’m keeping track of and for anyone else that might be interested!

*Note I have focused more on events that are significantly search marketing and SEO focused. There are numerous other events big and small across Australia with a broader focus of digital marketing.

SEO & Search Marketing Conferences in Australia

DMA Conference

Digital Marketers Australia Conference

Digital Marketers Australia is a three-day event held in Melbourne. With top international and local speakers coming together to share their knowledge and expertise. 

The DMA conference focuses on digital marketing to grow your business. Whether you’re just getting started looking for new strategies or have a large team who implements the digital marketing for you, you’ll find people to network and learn from at the conference.

After Digital Marketers Australia launched its first sold-out conference in 2019, they are set for a bigger and better conference in 2022. Unlike other startup events and social media events, the conference will be focusing specifically on digital marketing to help grow your business.

Whether you’re just getting started looking for new strategies or have a large team who implements the digital marketing for you, you’ll find people to network and learn from. Each day is going to be full of different topics that they will be covering in-depth with the speakers.

“Digital Marketers Australia is a great event for anyone looking to learn more about acquiring customers online. I’d recommend attending the conference if you’re serious about learning from speakers who are really “doing” this.”
