I'm on my way! Bit of a hop from the Caribbean, but I'm sure it will be worth it.

What a pleasant surprize! I just got back from visiting the Maine coast and the Pubcon has been announced! Whoo hoo!
I've registered, booked my flights, and secured my room. Now I've got some planning to do to fill in the time while I'm there.
I mentioned that I'll be there for the WebmasterWorld Pubconference but the chap didn't have a clue. He basically said to tell the folks at the desk at the Thistle Islington.

I'm in. Just for those flying over from the states my flight to london from cornwall is less than £50. Yippeee!

Saw your post re: getting me setup - appreciated. But it's a pretty lousy time to switch what you're doing to become a travel agent. :)
So - you're signed up right?

I am a Londoner and I 'll be there. Good choice of Pub!

I booked online with the Thistle Islington at 77 pounds sterling with a note mentioning the WebmasterWorld rate. Hopefully, there'll be an adjustment when I check in.
Also, worth mentioning - I got a non-stop RT fare on BA from San Francisco to Heathrow for $596 on Orbitz.

How'd you get 77 pounds? I got charged 81 and 8 pence.
| 7:17 pm on Jul 26, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I'm in and have registered, think I'll call the Thistle and haggle.
| 11:58 pm on Jul 26, 2003 (gmt 0)|
So, my brother and I are booked. We are in the accommodation industry. Are we the only ones who haven't sorted out a place to stay?
| 5:45 am on Jul 27, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Signed up and in the hotel, from thursday for three nights.
Wish I could stay longer, but my better half needs a hand with our little Lucy.

I'm there .... you know it is a very long way to travel from Australia, but, worth it. Will have to find some other fun stuff to incorporate into the trip.
| 3:30 pm on Jul 27, 2003 (gmt 0)|
See you all there then!
| 6:22 pm on Jul 27, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Never been before. Am definitely very tempted though, just that I have noone to go with :(
Is this event friendly enough to newcomers? Barry, hey -maybe I could tag along with you?
| 6:36 pm on Jul 27, 2003 (gmt 0)|
There are a lot of first timers on this pub con, don't worry about it just come on down
I'm on my first one as well.

>>just that I have noone to go with
You do now, just come along, We're really very friendly! [tioka.com] ;)

Nick you look like you're about to spew!
Don't worry about being a newbie to the Pubcon - Boston this past April was my first and I got into my first introductions/conversation within 2 minutes of getting off the elevator in the lobby (thanks to littleman who probably doesn't even remember it). I went with the flow from there.
It really is a cosmic adventure. Give yourself over to the force and forget everything else. You will learn luke, you will learn...

I don't know anyone either, but I'm all registered up and ready to go :-) PS. I got the Thistle for £59.50 ;-)
Looking forward to seeing all you guys, and being regaled with crazy AdSense statistics!
Anyone here interested in organising a breakfast meetup for that day? Or a lunch for the Sunday?
| 12:39 pm on Jul 28, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Unfortunately I won't be able to make it to the UK for this one. Hawkgirl and Shak, I expect a full report :)
| 7:25 pm on Jul 28, 2003 (gmt 0)|
how did you get the £59.50 at Thistle?
I'm paying £308 for four nights.
Organising breakfast or lunch is a good idea. First time I'm going to a WW-event.

If you go to the hotel's website (thistlehotels.com) they list the room rate at around £90 ($146).
If you go to expedia.com they list the hotel's room rate at $112 (£68).
