Find out what our attendees and speakers had to say about UnGagged London 2017:
A conference that is worth your time. Valuable sessions and great networking opportunities!
Wojtek Mazur - Co-Founder, Elephate
Very well organized, with good mix of experienced speakers. The fact that the speakers are not censored in what they can say makes for some really insightful and educational sessions. Definitely worth going if you want to know what is currently working in SEO

I’m a frequent conference attendee although this was my first time at UnGagged. I got talking to a couple of other first-timers there and the general feeling was that we wished we’d picked up on this event earlier.
I’ve been in the industry for years and seo conferences are all starting to blur into each other. Almost every speaker comes out with the same old nonsense that’s been paraphrased from the google guidelines. There should be a drinking game whenever a speaker comes out with “content is king” “backlinks are dead” “make sites for people not search engines”. Yawn.
I was interested in seeing what a closed-door conference looked like. I was sceptical if this actually meant I’d hear anything new or controversial but I wasn’t disappointed. The speakers didn’t hold back at all. Sure, they covered the basic stuff too but I loved the way they felt free to give you their “unofficial” opinion. There were lots of moments when someone would go talk about a workaround they found, or something they were trying out, just lots of off-the-record snippets that you wouldn’t hear in other conferences.
I had lots of useful tips, ideas and concepts that made me want to go back and start playing with them immediately. The venue was lovely but my only grumble is that it’s housed in an enormous building, so there were some long walks to one of the session rooms or to get outside. Other than that, it all ran pretty smoothly, the food was great and everyone was friendly. The speakers were eating with the attendees at the networking events and were very approachable, particularly after a couple of drinks.
This is what the edgier conferences used to be like before they got corporate and “safe”. Glad to see someone’s still carrying the torch for all us old sceptics and reprobates, I’ll definitely be back.

UnGagged 2017 may well have been the best conference I have ever attended (and I have been to quite a few since 5 years). The venue was perfect, the quality of the “content” was even better than last year and the organization overall was very good. Looking forward to UnGagged 2018 🙂

Loved the content. I am a novice and there was a lot of information that was very technical, but I took down notes and will research the things that I didn’t fully understand. I took a lot of great information way with me so I achieved my goal.
Lydia Peters - Attendee, Damon Capital Finance
UnGagged was my first SEO conference outside of Hungary, and I was fascinated by the expertise of the organizers as well as the speakers. It was great for networking also! I will be there next year!
Gergely Muranyi - Online Marketing Manager, ANC Programs & Tours
Great value and learned some valuable insights.
On a side note, loved the beer, the food was nice (portions could have been bigger) and refreshments throughout were great. Nice laid back event.
Met some great people as well!

Brilliant Conference once again!
Improvement from last year.
Peter Drayton - Senior Developer, ExportWorldwide Ltd
Loved it – some awesome talks, entertainment and good food,
Negatives – It was a long way round from one room to the other.
Positives – vetted, good talks which were very entertaining, didn’t like one so I went and listened to the other track, food was great, unlimited coffee after the night out! Sadly the timing was the same time as another big conference so a lot of people couldn’t make it for both days (something to avoid next time!) but I will definitely be returning! Hopefully making the Vegas one too!
