I have ben to SES San Jose 3 times and had a great experience each time. The conferences had a lot of good information about search engine optimization and the networking with other SEO’s was priceless.
The training resources were a great experience, however the SES conference series has been declining for about a year and it is uncertain if they will rebound.
Suggestions and New Ideas

SEO is still a good strategy, but it is not the latest technique. Most people know basic SEO but lead generation and specialized local advertising is the next frontier.
