Thanks to everyone who attended PubConference 2002 at the Cittie of Yorke yesterday. I hope you all enjoyed the event and picked up some good contacts and extra little tips, that you wouldn't have found if you weren't there. I certainly did.

Great time, great people, great late nights, OK food, bad (cold) weather. Let's do the next conference in a warm area.

Boston does sound like a good idea. I'm still recovering from the most AWFUL flu/cold following the conference so it will be nice to visit a warmer climate next time ;)

Hey eljefe, how about we do a Beach Conference in Spain next year? Weather's still good this time of year in the south at least :) I've suggested to a few that we do a WebmasterWorld World Tour...

Oh and Brett, we have tombs in Spanish cathedrals too. Check Cordoba's Mezquita for example.

(no I'm not part of the Spanish tourism promotion board!)

Hola Dazz

But of course! Had to at least FEEL like I was working amidst all that good fun.

Un placer haberte conocido...still amazed to find an Englishman w/ such superb espanol. Not that us Americans are any better about learning foreign languages - and I think those Italians only pretended to understand my rusty attempts to speak their lovely language!

My head's still spinning, and I never even woke up with a hangover! Absolutely amazing event, and maybe just the thing I need to kick myself into actually starting my own ventures... some absolutely astounding and inspirational conversations!

Coming soon: photos of the Fuzzy Blue Widget meeting snow for the first time... hehe.

engine, being a non-drinker I would NOT know about these things :)

although you guys obviously knew how to enjoy the stuff.

the only thing I walked away with was a bad throat from having smoked about 200 cigarettes over 3 days, along with about 40 cups of tea.

Boston sounds like a good choice. I have not spent much time on the East Coast and this would be a great excuse for the company to pay for another vacation for me.

Sounds like it was great. Are there any pictures of the event? I'm new to WebmasterWorld, sorry if I'm interupting... Are there plans for another one soon? Maybe a little closer to home? (I'm in California.)

hehe, now way! They were huge!

In Denmark we have practically no baths at all, in fact, in many flats in Copenhagen people have makeshift showers in the kitchen!

I have one, but it's a granny bath, ya know, the kind you have to sit up straight in?

I really enjoyed the hotel, perhaps cos I've stayed in so many hovels during my travels in the past: The staff were polite and pleasent, the plsce was clean and there was no shortage of beer ;)

Hi PF - you're certainly not interrupting. Feel free to join in and watch this space for the next event.

I think you can see that many new business relationships and friendships were cast at last week's conference.

I agree with Shak - my throat was terribly sore. I've never smoked so much in my life, and it was all second hand!

As for the bathtubs, well, that's about the only thing I wasn't ready to complain about with regard to the hotel. I got such poor service (and complained about it enough) that I actually got them to knock a day off of my bill ... heh heh.

Wow, I had no complaints at all about the hotel. It was such a pure land compared to the one in California, that kicked us out at 1am, ending the party. I really enjoyed being there.

Brett_Tabke: "Sightseeing; We hit all the hot spots down town. My favs were the Millennium bridge and the London Eye. The bridge was pretty full of people, and I couldn't detect any tell-tale sway at all. I was surprised my mild fear of heights did not kick in on the wheel. Thanks for playing tour guide HG."

they've fixed the bridge...sadly

next year, if anyone wants, I can set up a day/evening of lesser known but amusing bits of London with maybe a gig or a club thrown in (I know a few people running such) or maybe a pub theatre trip (I know even more people running these)...not all the best bits of this city are famous

Shak I agree on the bath situation...tub way too small to enjoy a nice 30 minute hot shower!

Videos really ARE coming...I promise...just have loads of work to catch up on. Look for something before Monday.

Yep, let's have the next one where the smokers can go outside. I saw a lot of non-smokers outside quite often and it was freezing.

Well Guys, it was nice to meet you all. Thanks Brett and all the other organisers (sorry organizers).

Thorughly enjoyed myself and learnt much, including building relationships with Overture and some other useful contacts, not forgetting Google throwing 100.00 at us. Highlight of the event was a long chat with Danny.

I actually thought the Hotel was cheap for London, expected to pay over 100 per night. Only complaint was that the bar shut at 3:30 Friday night.

Cittie of York was an excellent venue, didnt quite get round to the food but did sample the wet stuff.

Boston sound good to me if only I can persuade the Management, she may have to come with me (which would spoil the late evening networking).

Once again THANKS!

for those that complained about the weather - we had weeks of warm sunshine here in london right up till the thursday or friday. you just got unlucky.

as i said elsewhere, pubcon was amazing - so many people meeting so many others, making business contacts, even just seeing so many people swapping business cards etc showed just how important these meetings can be. and yes, i now realise how much i missed out by not getting a room in the thistle (only a few miles from me).

i doubt if i can make it over the the states for the next official meeting, but some people over here have said they're up for an "unofficial" WebmasterWorld meeting in london sometime soon. i'm all for it.

The Thistle: Mixed reviews. Several people swapped rooms, and 3 pulled out and went down the street.

Was it a case of throw your keys on the table like a wife/husband swapping thing.....

And for those 3 that urinated in the street, the toilets at the Thistle were well sign-posted so tut tut tut shame on you!

I'm also up for an unofficial, Pub Con Jr. in London (or somewhere else in the UK if that'd be preferred by the majority)

There were so many people I wanted to talk to but never got to. But enjoyed talking to the ones that did make it round to.

Isn't that just the recurring theme of these posts?

Goddamit! I can't beleive I missed some of you guys!

One of the highlights for me (other than meeting brett of course) had to be meeting Tedster and having the full-on CSS discussion face to face ;);)

Nick_W, set up a pub meet in Denmark...I'll come over...my cousin lives in Gavle (sp?) and I've a good friend on the staff at the University in Kobenhavn...I could also pop in and see our centre there, so I might be able to blag at least some of it on expenses :)

What a great time. This community has such a powerful knowledge base - especially when they're all in one room.

The afternoon session at the Cittie of Yorke was mighty potent. But it was nearly overshadowed for me by 4 days of round-the-clock conversations at the Thistle. I begrudged every minute that I had to sleep, so I only got about 3 hours a night (well, it really was morning).

My horizons were pushed so far that I can barely decide which directions I'll explore next. And my laryngitis only lasted a day or so.

Everyone I met was good company, and a unique character as well. Glad to have made so many connections, and to have so many faces and personalities hooked up with their nick.
