One of my favourite SEO conferences is LinkLove which are organised by Distilled. This year LinkLove 2012 London looks set to be amazing with great speakers, great listeners (like you and me) and awesome party events all over the place. One thing I want to highlight about all Distilled Events is that the speakers are "invite only" this means no speak pitches to the team for a conference they are invited by the team to talk about a particular thing. This means you don't end up with 5 people who can't speak and 2 who can... they are all awesome speakers and all experts on the topic which they speak. Past speakers include Rand Fishkin (of SEOMOZ), Matt Cutts (of Google) and Tom Critchlow (erm, yeh VP of Distilled) - see awesome people speak at Distilled events.
Here is what a few past attendees said about distilled events.

And if that isn't nice enough to hear, take a listen to these awesome distilled SEO ProTips, it's Tom Critchlow - told you he is awesome.
