Interactive Day San Diego 2018
Interactive Day San Diego (IDSD) is the premier west coast digital marketing conference of the year, presented by SDX. The weather’s always beautiful, attendees are excited, and speakers are top industry leaders. This is a must-attend event for those looking to make professional connections, and walk away with insights and inspiration needed to propel a career, business, or the company they support.

IDSD has been restructured over the past couple of years from an event held in one hotel location moving from conference room to conference room to an open campus-style layout with speakers located in different locations all around San Diego. In 2018, the layout will be very similar to 2017 with the campus style layout; keynote speakers at the historic Balboa Theatre at Horton Plaza. Breakout sessions will be at locations in East Village. Transportation is provided between locations for convenience and efficiency.

Every year we send a survey to IDSD attendees that allows us to gather suggestions to better meet the needs and interests of our attendees.

A few suggestions we received included adding a central location to meet. A place for networking opportunities, co-worker meetups and debriefs, or simply a place to go to process all the great information received.

I’ve been lucky enough to attend Interactive Day 2013-2017 and I am looking forward to the 2018 speaker lineup to be released. As an SDX board member and an IDSD committee member, I’m involved in helping in the planning of this annual event. This year, 2018, event Chairs Ryan Berman of Sock Problems and Greg Gibson of Grizzly, bring us an event packed with new ideas and opportunities to make new connections.

Building off the success and momentum of last years new campus-style layout, there will be even more opportunities to connect and network with dedicated areas and breaks. Also, something new, we are taking over J Street by Petco Park where attendees will be able to experience new technologies and innovations from top brands and network with the industry’s best.

Are you interested in joining the Interactive Day committee to help plan and coordinate speakers, locations, sponsors, and logistics, please contact Laurie Ganz at 619.225.2281 or We have opportunities for sponsors to get involved at a variety of levels, with incredibly generous benefits.
