Opportunities to Network

One of the most important aspects of any conference is networking. At Advanced Search Summit we don’t squeeze networking events into our schedule, the entire summit is built to be a networking experience. Sit with our speakers, engage with sponsors over amazing food, or discuss current digital marketing trends with a glass of wine. Our immersive and interactive environment makes it easy to grow your professional network and stay connected to industry thought leaders.

Opening Day Reception

Just outside of the conference we will be enjoying an amazing reception of local food and drink. After a day of speakers this is an amazing way to decompress or get an answer to that specific question you had for a speaker earlier that day. Remember, to join us for our Ugly Shoe Contest!

Wine Train Dinner

Take a twilight journey into the heart of Napa Valley! Join us for our capstone dinner onboard the historic Napa Wine Train! An exquisite four-course meal will be served while you savor award-winning wines from around Napa Valley. Just remember, some of the places we take you to can’t be found on a map.

VIP Wine Experience

Looking for something special & extraordinary? Our optional Saturday Wine Experience is an amazing opportunity to join a small group of conference attendees and speakers at one of Napa’s premier wineries. You’ll discover the wine making process, sample wines right from the barrel, and appreciate wine like never before. Every journey with Advanced Search Summit is special, but some days and events call for extra special treatment. Don’t miss out!


“Few other conferences provide the expertise and the networking that Advanced Search Summit does. If you’re looking to make meaningful connections with other industry leaders (and let’s face it… have a little fun while doing it), this is the place you need be!”
