8 Great Dallas-Based Digital Personalities Speaking at Digital Summit

Since our initial announcement of the upcoming Digital Summit Dallas event,  and our subsequent interview with The Onion Founder and keynote,  we thought you might like to know a little more on the local level. Although many of the speakers hail from the San Francisco Bay area, of the 65 featured speakers at Digital Summit Dallas, at least eight are Dallas-based.

As some of the best digital marketing and SEO's are in Dallas this isn't all of the Dallas-based speakers, just ones we found particularly interesting. Plus we had to widdle it down to eight so it rhymed with great. Here are some outstanding hometown guys/gals representing Big D at the Digital Summit conference coming up next week.
