PubCon Las Vegas 2010, the premier new media and optimization conference, concluded in November, and thanks to a record number of enthusiastic attendees and speakers from around the world it is sure to go down as the largest and most successful search-related event ever.
A record 200-plus exceptional speakers converged on the Las Vegas Convention Center, packing over 100 sessions and eight sub-conferences into an amazing week of search and social media the way only PubCon can do it.
PubCon organizer Brett Tabke said, “I thank the record numbers of you who attended PubCon Las Vegas 2010 and helped make this the largest and most remarkable conference in our decade-plus history.”
“We knew PubCon Las Vegas 2010 was going to be a big event from the heavy pre-show sign-ups, and it more than lived up to our predictions, making this the largest and most successful search-related event ever. Thanks to our speakers for their hard work and dedication, and especially to all our attendees” added Tabke.
PubCon Las Vegas 2010 keynote speakers included New York Times technology columnist David Pogue, longtime search engine guru Tim Mayer, Sevans Strategy founder Sarah Evans, social media firm UnMarketing president Scott Stratten, New Marketing Labs president Chris Brogan, and Copyblogger founder Brian Clark, who all delivered knock-out presentations to thrilled standing-room-only crowds.
Three full days of networking lunches were well attended, with more than 30 top speakers participating, and the exhibition hall drew record numbers of interested attendees from around the world, with more than a dozen PubCon speakers on hand for book signings.
The networking event scene was busier than ever, with PubCon Classic, a new "PubCrawl," and after-hours parties at some of the hottest clubs in Las Vegas.
PubCon attendees took part in a very special week of all things search and social media, kicking off with the largest and most successful PubCon Masters Group training program yet.
PubCon thanks Wynn Las Vegas, the official hotel of PubCon Las Vegas 2010, The Palms Las Vegas, New York New York Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, The Venetian, The Palazzo Las Vegas, and Blue Man Group for helping to make this year's PubCon the largest ever. PubCon also thanks gold sponsor Raven Internet Marketing Tools and all of its many other sponsors, media partners, and exhibitors.
“There is just something special about PubCon,” said conference veteran Barry Schwartz.
Up next for PubCon in 2011 will be a spring PubCon South at Austin 2011 conference, held March 8 - 9, 2011 in Austin, Texas and timed to lead right into SXSW.
