(Austin TX) WebmasterWorld moves into new offices in River Place Pointe Corporate Park in Austin, Texas.

WebmasterWorld Inc., the leading online search engine and Internet marketing forum and producer of PubCon conferences, has outgrown its offices and is moving to larger premises at the River Pointe Executive Corporate Office Park, Austin, Texas.

Brett Tabke, WebmasterWorld's CEO commented, "This is a historic event for the company. Moving to these new offices is a natural step to aid our continued growth and to strengthen opportunities for further development."

WebmasterWorld, a privately held company, currently employs six full-time staff, 10 part time employees, 55 part time WebmasterWorld moderators, and the usual team of external consultants. Tabke continued, "The business growth outstripped our expectations and it was obvious that we needed more space if we were to continue to grow."

Tabke started his first online BBS system while at college in 1984. Tabke continued, "Over the years, I've run the business out of dorm rooms, basements, attics, garages, spare bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room, and most recently, rented apartments. You name it, I've run a business there! Having professional offices will make everything easier, it's more enjoyable for all staff, and it creates a better working environment. It raises the bar of professionalism for the whole team." The official opening takes place in early January.

the usual team of external consultants

We usually try to drive them away with sticks, but some are pretty persistant.

Congrats. I just made the same type of move myself and it's one of the best things I've ever done.

I *feel* more professional.

OT: Subscription fees are fine IMO. The pubcon pricing is long overdue for a serious increase. $500 for a three day conference with beer included is about a 1/4 of what I would normally expect to pay.

Yeah but that fee helps smaller guys come to the conference. I wouldn't like spending $2000 to come to the conference along with all the other expenses like the flight, hotel and food. That would have made Vegas an almost $4000 trip for me! (and I didn't gamble!) Brett's got the right idea making it affordable to all who want to come.

Congrats on moving up in the world Brett!

I just hope with all the extra profits that the actual pocket money the management team creates; it shares it with the people that put in 100% free time to make it happen for the owners.

Dont keep it all at the top like the rest of Corporate America. I know the typical answer is "we will not" but keep is real.
