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:

Annii

your member name is your user name.

2 tickets - do twice I suppose, certainly register yourself now, will get someone involved with reg for conference to drop you a sticky or drop a line here about it.

I just took a look at the order form, how do I order 2 tickets?

Speaking as the one who's handled the name tags/attendee database, it would be GREATLY appreciated if you could just fill out the forms twice: Once for each person.

Makes sorting the database and getting the tags printed accurately MUCH MUCH easier!

and is my member ID my user name?

Yep. :) It'll be great to meet you!

I'm booked and this time I will know what to expect.
Last year was like an ambush for the unsuspecting.

piskie,

Don't worry the ambush feeling will probably still be there, just this time you'll keep your composure!

Hubby and I are all booked, even have tickets to Stonehenge already :) Unfortunately he has decided to skip out on the actual conference, something about him having no idea what I do........Arriving Thursday around 10pm, leaving late Tue - can't wait to see everyone again and meet everyone I missed last time!

piskie,

1st conference i don't really remember all that well as alot of the old-timers will always remind me, but the conference in LA - was an eye opener - even the conference in London last year was still a lttile wild, though Boston was chilled and i felt very easy about it all. Don't get me wrong though, a bit of preperation on the sort of things that you want ot pick up on will sort alot of the shake's out. No kidding.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Marica, we'll be ok this time, as long as ciml will get his shopping over quickly again and engine will settle on finding a pub with his map as last time. As long as it isn't so windy and cold as Boston I don't mind.

killroy just bring booze money, although after a few shadies I found a beer mat or a napkin came in handy, so perhaps a pen and a bit of paper would be a good idea.

At least this time I don't have to make a half-hearted attempt at sightseeing, I will be getting myself booked into the hotel, even though I only live 45mins away.

Right then, the Thistle web site, at least as far as pricing information goes, is crap.

I don't know what the 69 Brett refers to is; a bog standard room would appear to be 38 - an extra tenner will get you a desk, and breakfast would appear to set you back 20 quid.

Anyone care to elucidate?

WebmasterWorld Senior Member 10+ Year Member



Just registered :) Can't see everyone I met and meet everyone I didn't!

Can anyone fill us from the States in on internet connectivity? Will we need a local ISP? Phone adapters?

Marcia,
Where did you find those rates from L.A., because all I'm seeing is $600 and up (expedia).

Ouch. Flights from South Africa start from $850. Not going to be much money left for beer.

I am in, too.

Looking forward too see you all again.

And we all know, it will take more than just the saturday, we are going to meet us before in the Thistle, aren`t we? Like a networking party before and thereafter...
