Back from SES Chicago and only 20 days left in the year!

I spoke about Japanese Internet Market at SES Chicago 2007’s “Search Around The World” session on day 1. The Asian market including Japan is an important market for not only the large corporations but also for small and mid-size businesses. I hope my presentation gave some new information to people came to the session.

I’m back from SES Chicago. It was another great conference with some interesting sessions and keynote speakers. The best of all, for me at least, I got to speak about Japanese Internet Market during the “Search Around The World” session on day 1!

With Internet technology, the size of the company or the location of the office no longer limit your market to your local area or just in US. In fact, at SES Chicago, they had 2 “Search Around The World” sessions, one for Asia-Pacific and the other for Europe and Latin America. All sessions, including my presentation, are well covered in many blogs.

I’m an active member of SEMPO. We had a round table Q&A session with engines (Google, Yahoo and MSN) in the evening of the 1st day. SEMPO members met engines to ask any questions that they may have in a relaxed / casual setting. I heard many good feedback from the attendees. We’d like to bring it to other conferences and events where SEMPO goes.
