(1) Care to share a couple of tips on getting the most out of PubCon?
The most important has already been mentioned - talk to people! I've only left one PubCon feeling disapointed and that was my first. Why? Becuase I was too shy to introduce myself. (this will be my 4th, btw, and my 1st as a mod)
The sessions are great, but the real value is in meeting other people who are doing what you are. Oh, and yes, bring twice as business cards then anticipate needing;-)
** Keep your WebmasterWorld conference badge on in the hotel. This way people who are looking for others to hang out with after the sessions will know who you are.
(3) Lastly, what does the registration fee cover exactly (getting in the event. lunch? drinks at pubcon? free namebadge? :)
Good questions. I've let the 'higher powers' here know about them.
