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:

I'm on my way! Bit of a hop from the Caribbean, but I'm sure it will be worth it.

What a pleasant surprize! I just got back from visiting the Maine coast and the Pubcon has been announced! Whoo hoo!

I've registered, booked my flights, and secured my room. Now I've got some planning to do to fill in the time while I'm there.

I mentioned that I'll be there for the WebmasterWorld Pubconference but the chap didn't have a clue. He basically said to tell the folks at the desk at the Thistle Islington.

Thanks George,
Saw your post re: getting me setup - appreciated. But it's a pretty lousy time to switch what you're doing to become a travel agent. :)

So - you're signed up right?

I booked online with the Thistle Islington at 77 pounds sterling with a note mentioning the WebmasterWorld rate. Hopefully, there'll be an adjustment when I check in.

Also, worth mentioning - I got a non-stop RT fare on BA from San Francisco to Heathrow for $596 on Orbitz.

So, my brother and I are booked. We are in the accommodation industry. Are we the only ones who haven't sorted out a place to stay?

I'm there .... you know it is a very long way to travel from Australia, but, worth it. Will have to find some other fun stuff to incorporate into the trip.

Nick you look like you're about to spew!

Don't worry about being a newbie to the Pubcon - Boston this past April was my first and I got into my first introductions/conversation within 2 minutes of getting off the elevator in the lobby (thanks to littleman who probably doesn't even remember it). I went with the flow from there.

It really is a cosmic adventure. Give yourself over to the force and forget everything else. You will learn luke, you will learn...

I don't know anyone either, but I'm all registered up and ready to go :-) PS. I got the Thistle for 59.50 ;-)

Looking forward to seeing all you guys, and being regaled with crazy AdSense statistics!

Anyone here interested in organising a breakfast meetup for that day? Or a lunch for the Sunday?

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it to the UK for this one. Hawkgirl and Shak, I expect a full report :)

wackybrit:

how did you get the 59.50 at Thistle?

I'm paying 308 for four nights.

Organising breakfast or lunch is a good idea. First time I'm going to a WW-event.

If you go to the hotel's website (thistlehotels.com) they list the room rate at around 90 ($146).

If you go to expedia.com they list the hotel's room rate at $112 (68).

Well shoot - if I'd known that I could have saved a bundle!
