      Search Solutions is a special one-day event dedicated to the latest innovations in web & enterprise search. In contrast to other major industry events, Search Solutions aims to be highly interactive and collegial, with attendance limited to 60 delegates.
      The high quality technical programme includes presentations, panels and case studies in which delegates present and share opinions, insight and expertise.

      The event should appeal to researchers, practitioners, consultants, end users or indeed anyone interested in the latest developments in web and enterprise search.
