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:

Can anyone fill us from the States in on internet connectivity?

I already checked and found out there is high-speed internet in the rooms, using a regular ethernet. The cost is 0.50 per minute up to a 15 maximum charge for a 24 hour period. That rate sounds awfully high, so I am choosing to be ignorant of the exchange rate for it ;)

Now I just have to hunt down my laptop manual and figure out if my laptop is compatible. If it is dual voltage (100v-240v), using a US-UK power adapter, my laptop will work. Or so I have been told, LOL.

I am one of the unfortunate ones that will still have to do some work while I am away - the joys of running a one-woman show ;) But using my own laptop sounds much better than using an internet cafe.

Single at the Thistle was running £38.50 per night last night (and flights from Ryanair €2.90 each way!) so I'm booked and paid for...looking forward to my first one!

NB It may have been a weekend hotel rate given if you book Sunday as well.

Yep, just booked at the same rate stever quoted, two nights, one charged immediately as part of their super-advance-double-bonus-special-extra deal.
Could stay with friends, but somehow doesn't seem the point.

Shak, your link for Beginner's Guide appears to be in the private forum... Is there a public one?
