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!
Saturday September 20th, 2003, 1pm to whenever.
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)
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).
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!
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't - PubCon is more fun!
Besides, the ACL Fest last year was SOOOO hot. I got way too dehydrated way too fast. They need to hold it in October, for cryin' out loud.
Hopefully you'll have better luck with the parking/shuttle bus situation this year. ;)
I get the impression that I will be the odd one out, given that I am teetotal :-( But, I intend to rack up some serious Coke drinking stories for next year's pre-PubCon board.
The Sunday (21st) is my birthday ... and its a big one, so I will likely be hung over like the rest of you. I'll down several aspirin and toast all of you with a hair or two of the dog! :)
Have a great one everyone!
#1 is the community spirit and for that no alcohol etc is required.
TeeTotal, lots of those about including a few mods, and many members, just be prepared for lots of Coffee and Tea.
As for newbies, no problemo, lots of those around, and no doubt you shall be a non-newbie within an hour.
In retrospect - I talk like I'm a long-standing member of the family but in reality I'm as much a new-comer as the many who vocalized it. This is only my second Pubcon and my first time outside of Heathrow. My eyes will be as big as dinner plates as I step off the plane. But I look forward to meeting many of you.
