PubConference V London

Webmasterworld is proud to announce PubConference 5! the web marketing and promotion event of 2003, to be held in london England and hosted by WebmasterWorld Members.

You've been hearing about the other Pubcons and last years sold out PubCon London - wishing you had been there right!?
Don't miss this opportunity to open yourself to new methods and strategies for web marketing revealed by the friends and family of WebmaserWorld at PubCon 5!

When?
Saturday September 20th, 2003, 1pm to whenever.

Where?
Cittie of Yorke Pub in downtown London England. A great place for a weekend conference. There's been a Pub there since the year 1430.

The main bar is a cavernous mediaeval-style hall with a high vaulted ceiling and everywhere you look there are carved oak panels, ornate metalwork and some of the biggest oak vats you'll ever see above the bar - it's like an elven king's hall out of The Lord Of The Rings. (-professor hardbottle)

Why?
The premise is simple, many of our members are qualified to speak at conferences and are bored to tears when attending other ones. So why did we go to them? Just to get to the bar and network with people! The contacts, the associations, the follow ups, and the friendships have been some of the most productive contacts we have ever been part of.

What's in it for me?
The Short scoop? It's your chance to put yourself in the loop with the in marketing crowd (it's probably why you came to this site).

Agenda:
;) TBA

Sponsors:
The usual suspects... Thanks to last years crew: AllTheWeb, Position Tech, Inktomi, SearchEngineCommando, Overture UK, Espotting, Yahoo UK

Special Guests? Who will be there?
Everyone who is anyone in European SEO.

Travel - goin mobile:
We've been watching air fares from the US to London since June, and they are as inexpensive right now as they have been all year long!

Cost:
All funds go directly towards the cost of hosting the event (venue expenses, and the OPEN bar etc..).

Early bird signup until the end of August...

Got Site? Sure:

Note: I'm saddened to report that unlike Boston there will NOT be limo rides from the hotel to pub this time. Sorry - london limo's are really really high priced. (maybe we can find a limo affiliate somewhere ;)

Also, you may wish to wait 24hrs to book a room at the hotel until the conference rate goes into effect.

Hmm.... *opens wallet, moths fly out; swats at moths*
Think I can get my boss to pay for my trip? Oh sure. I'll graft some wings onto some pigs while I'm at it.
*sigh*
Someone have a pint or three for me?

Can't wait to see you all again.

This'll be my third PubConference.

Right now fares from Los Angeles to Heathrow are under $450. That's for direct non-stop flights on major airlines.

>>will NOT be limo rides

I didn't rate a ride in the limo. ;) I went to the pub on that little mini-bus and was perfectly happy with it.

Added:
It might be nice to have a mini-bus if a group decides to go on a "short walk" shopping trip - just in case ciml needs another new shirt.

Warning:
The Brit version of a short walk is across town. If you spot engine in front of a group of people holding a map, watch out.

Does the Thistle have high speed access?

I'm sure it does, since it's our base, but I just wanted to check as I couldn't find it mentioned anywhere.

Added:
Yes, they do. I found it.

Added:
For Cleveland folks, CO has a non-stop to Gatwick for $533. Air Canada can do it for $480, but you'll have to transfer at Toronto.

I'm gonny pull of arms and legs to get there. It'll be hard for me, so what should a first timer know to make the most of it? Should I start undusting my old lappy and loading it full with my stuff, or should I come with pen and paper ready t otake notes, or simply with booze money?

Please advise :)

K.I.S.S. - business cards, small scratch pad, and a STRONG/CLEAR mind. (Go for the freebie pens straight away, but better bring a backup)

This is a memory game of sorts.

Scratch pad? PDA! Look like a real geek, for goodness sake. ;) I'm thinking of picking up a propeller beanie... hehehehe

CAMERA! Especially if it's your first time to London. I'm looking at picking up a new one just for this trip.

(Bring a bottle of vitamins and aspirin if you're inclined to over-indulge. You'll thank yourself in the mornings.)

Nope. Jolt gum. Caffeine, caffeine and nothing but more caffeine. ;)

Thistle Islington on King's Cross Rd., if it's the same as last time.

Yeah, americans found it rather small and grotty but the brits were relatively happy....

It's okay as long as you only want to sleep in the room rather than live in it.

Very accomodating Bar staff..

I thought it was great... :) I'll take a small room that includes a full breakfast in the morning over a big one that charges $3.50 for bottled water in the rooms any day!

Ah one evening the men's toilets at the thistle was desecraited with Puck, we could never quite figure out who it was, though there were suspicions, a bit to much beer possibly
