|This will be a old fashion PubCon with one afternoon spent talking shop in the Pub. |
We expect about 400 people. Food and drink from about 1 to 4pm.
Thats from the pubcon london site... just wondering, 1pm or 3pm start?

I am really looking forward to this I have been to one before but never as a sponser I look forward to meeting as many WW guys and girls as possible.
For anyone who hasnt been the venue is the same as the last London pubcon I attended and its worth going just to see the place itself. Fantastic location for what should be a great day .

Yes 1-4 is correct.
I am really looking forward to it too!

No idea what to expect but hope to meet some like minded people and put some faces to those names.

Will drop in for the afternoon :)
| 8:15 pm on Sep 23, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Cool, get in Wednesday in the morning, staying until Sat morning. Cant wait ;)

GREAT anticipation, here. I'm almost packed already and I don't leave for 48 hours!
I missed the last London Conference, (and I do mean I missed it) but I hopoe to make up for it this time.
|thought these things went on for days |
I'm arriving on Monday -- I've got a small amount of business to take care of early in the week, but I want to hang out as much as possible all week long with everybody/anybody who's available. I'm sure the Hilton Olympia has a lounge of some sort that we can use as our informal HQ
| 9:46 pm on Sep 23, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Can't wait to get over there and see everybody again ... it'll be great!
| 10:30 am on Sep 24, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Hey how about a stoodint discount?
| 1:25 pm on Sep 24, 2005 (gmt 0)|
|Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors there will be a free bar and a wide range of food available. |
Free beer, Essex_boy, is that good enough? >;->
| 1:52 pm on Sep 24, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Sure is Ill take a closer look!
| 1:57 pm on Sep 24, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Really looking forward to meeting the people behind the names... can't wait!

Maybe I'm missing something but what's the use of an old fashion [sic] PubCon with one afternoon spent talking shop i.e. three hours to meet people, work out who's worth chatting to, priortising subjects for "power" discussions/doing five minute quick-chats (kinda like speed dating), and having some meaningful conversations with a chosen few?
I'm one of Webmasterworld's greatest fans and I'm sure there's more to this than meets my eye. Perhaps somebody could explain.

I was wondering that. How is it going to be worth my taking a whole day out from my business, and paying about 30 pounds in travel &c. For an informal meeting in a pub?
| 6:22 pm on Sep 24, 2005 (gmt 0)|
You'll find out when you get there :)
We'll probably meet much longer but if its the same as previous years the drinks will only be free only during that interval.
I'll stay in or close to the Olympia Hilton from the 28, unfortunately too late to take part in the Google action over there :( Really looking forward to omeeting you all again!

Will there be pretty girls? -LH

Looking forward to this, flying in from Hungary for it. One question: do I bring my laptop? Is there wireless?

There won't be time for you to use the laptop if you're busy networking. ;)

Dude, you get the chance to talk to some of the heavyweights in search and have a few beers with it. Just go.

Guaranteed. Pretty and brilliant.

Nice Hawkgirl, but how did you know my wife is coming? ;-)
Reading this [webmasterworld.com], it's clear that pubcon London is a different bag. Can I safely assume that it is simply a shmooze-fest with other members and sponsors, or is someone at some point going to saying something official at the conf? If so, when? And is it safe to assume that it'll be drinks and greetz until 6ish (official sponsored drinx ending at 4) and then folks head out for a bite?
Sorry to ask so many questions, but I am a pubcon n00b.
I ask also because I may need to duck out at some point to meet someone...

Some people head off to the hotel and others stick around and get drunk! It really is a mix of what happens.
No formal speech, some one gets on a table and shouts out a few thankyou's etc... but its just an informal drink and chat and a chance to talk to a few people who understand what you are talking about :)
| 6:55 pm on Sep 29, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Thanks CC, looking forward to it! Off to pack the bags and have a warmup pint...
| 9:33 am on Sep 30, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Despite earlier expectations it seems that I can show my face at the pubcon after all :) Look forward to seeing you all there.
| 8:14 am on Oct 1, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Good to see a few new faces there and meet up with a few old ones as well :)
| 7:28 pm on Oct 1, 2005 (gmt 0)|
It wasn't a bad get together at all (different from its predecessors) but an enjoyable time.
It was hot in neoprene though!
P.S. If anyone has copies of the photos they took I'd love to host them :)
| 2:32 pm on Oct 3, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Yeah, a nice meet up and great to put some faces to names, and loved the neoprene :-)
