Even though this is my fourth year as a WebmasterWorld member , i have never attended an Pub Conference and I am really excited to see the faces behind the forum usernames ...Hope this will be a Fun experience!.
You can also get 10% off for being a supporter of the site. You can you also talk to one of the exhibitors for a 10% off coupon and you can also beg them for one of their limited 25% off coupons :-)
Does this mean you can get 20% off. 10% for being a supporter and another 10% if you have a coupon?
I'm dying to meet some fellow webmasters and do some networking. I'll even bring the huge box of Mardi Gras beads from my garage and pass them out to anyone at the conf. who will pretend to be nice to me. LOL
Later you can take those beads down to Bourbon Street and use them to meet enthusiastic women. ;-)
Seriously though, do people put their screen names on their name tags, or wear tshirts with their websites on them? How do we know who everyone is? And what am I supposed to wear? ;-)
I found it easy in Orlando to walk up and talk to anyone whatever they were wearing, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.
Bayou_Gal, I'll be looking forward to some beads.
Shri, Its always a bit difficult to walk after a little Pubcon.
Flying in Sunday Night and Leaving Satuday. Cheers.

2003 Boston PubConf 4: Matt Cutts (Google) - No, download time is NOT a factor in the algo. Yes, age of domain is a factor. (the later fact was not publically known until the spring of 2005)
2003 Boston PubConf 4: Paul Gardi (Teoma) - Yes, we will increase the size of the database significatly over the next two years. (this was never talked about publically, but those playing Jeeves have totally understood the power of this info)
2004 Orlando PubConf 6: Tim Mayer (Yahoo), Yes, the engine is about to be launched and a new PPC system will be serviced by Overture. (this was a internet breaking story).
2004 Orlando PubConf 6: Dan Boberg (Overture), In the buy cycle, a four keyword phrases is where your ROI will jump by a factor of three. (This tidbit had never been talked about in public by an Overture rep - ever)
2004 Las Vegas PubConf 7 : Matt Cutts (Google), Build one page of fresh content a day. (This is the first time an se has specifically recommended a content creation rate for small sites. It would later in 2005 become extremely important after we discovered just how much of the Google algo is based on domain, link, and content age)
It pays for itself time-n-time again.
voices, no, you can't "combine" coupons - nice try though. hehe
I have gone to the last 2 Webmasterworld conferences and was going to pass on this one; then the annoucement yesterday. It's hard to walk away from something like that. But what if everyone else thinks like i do? Won't it be sold out by Monday?
We haven't registered yet. I need the $450 price because I'll be paying for both of us.
My boyfriend has made me promise to sleep on it on more night! Will tomorrow be too late to register?
