The Women in Tech SEO Festival is going virtual this year and a new edition is coming in March 15-17, 2021, in which I’ll have the amazing opportunity to speak!

I was able to speak at last year event too (it was the last in-person event that I went to before Covid) and Areej did an outstanding job organizing one of the most impactful conferences I’ve been able to attend/speak at.

This year won’t be different, Areej is organizing a unique event while making the most out of the online setting for maximum reach and comfort for SEO women around the world who with to attend:

  • 6 talks by 6 speakers spread across 3 days, with the topics revolving about: Advance, Innovate and Empower. I’ll be speaking along the amazing Emma Russell, Roxana Stingu, Jamie Indigo, Carolyn Lyden, and Tiffany Da Silva.
  • Each day will have a 1.5 hour slot between 5:00 – 6:30PM (GMT), featuring 2 live talks + Q&A panel, making it easier to follow.
  • Attendees will have access to talks recordings post-event, as well as to a private slack workspace for networking.
  • The full access ticket fee is lower than many online events, at £30 +VAT

Since I know an event of this type can be game changing, I would like to give 16 full access tickets to women in SEO who would like to attend WTSFest Virtual but for any reason can’t purchase a ticket.

To get a ticket, please follow these steps:

  • You just need to leave a comment to this post with the following information (besides your email that will be requested when posting the comment, which would be only used to give access to the conference):
    • Your name and last name.
    • A social profile/Website information.
  • If there are more than 16 comments of women in SEO who would like to get tickets: I’ll do a raffle among those who have left a comment. I’ll be closing the comments next Monday, February 22nd 2021 at 2pm and announce the winners at 4pm.

I hope this can help more women in SEO to attend such a fantastic event 🙂
