Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
You've been hearing about PubCon 1 for the past year and wishing you had been there. 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 2!
Saturday Oct 12, 2002, 1pm to whenever.
Cittie of Yorke Pub in downtown London England. This is an incredible 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).
We will be having several "round table" discussions dealing with topics from acquiring traffic to converting traffic. I've also hear rumors that a certain forum operator will be sharing 20 years worth of secrets on successful forum building.
AllTheWeb, Position Tech, Inktomi, TopDog, Overture UK.
Special Guests? Who will be there?
- many of the worlds and and Europes top seo's will be there.
- 3 guys who each made over $100k last year running mom & pop affiliate sites.
- Search Engine Representatives. (don't tell em I told you this, but talking with these folks was one of the highlights of the last conference for me. shhh).
- A guy named Sullivan from SearchEngineWatch will be there.
- Per and Susan Koch of the Pandia Post.
Travel - goin mobile:
We've been watching air fares from the US to London since March, 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 July for only 45 Pounds Sterling (approx $69USD)
Heh! And don't blame me for the name, Pandia really named it in their article last year. When I read it, it immediately struck me as catchy. Since the major players on the web had gotten by with names like Yahoo and Google, I figured we could have a little fun, too.
AND, the .com was available.

I guess I've done too much backpacking and am clueless about hotels that take actual reservations!
"attended pubconference" on their expense report. (That really hit the fan at the sister event -BARconference.)
No problem, there i think my accountant will fix that, they really do a great job over at "Arthur Andersen" :) i got to hand it to them, my company have increased the profit with 3000% in 2 months, great.
One wonders about Anonymous... Anonymous has written alot of VERY odd books (over a shockingly long span of time!), and is also responsible for saying some very strange things through the years. I'm thinking Anonymous must be friends with Them... After all, They say an awful lot of things anonymously. They're clearly in cahoots with Anonymous, whoever They may be.
--> The last pubconference was a success, no doubt, and I canīt miss successes...
[BTW: I canīt believe, that heini and I are the only guys from Grrmoney, that big country but almost nobody signs up? Strange...]

Hey Brett, about that 40 something pounds, I'm trying to get approval from the CFO to pay for everything...if not, then I have to save up...how much does it go up to after July?
Oh yeah, I wrote on the internal Purchase Order, that seo bloke, Brett somethingorother, is holding a really important conference in London, and it is really important that I be there... When they ask who Brett is, I'll just say, "He is, Mr SearchEngine!"
>Grrmoney - almost nobody signs up? Strange.
We've always had a small following from Germany. We are big in Scandinavia, UK, and a sprinkling from most of the other countries in Europe (france being the lone exception).
thank you for bringing up this great idea, thank's a lot for choosing europe! :-) Here is the next german to follow and I did a posting on www.suchmaschinentricks.de
Will the englishmen accept euros? I am curious about the result of the euro-controversy which is going on big time in england. *fg*
There are often awful traffic delays (mainly caused by a high density of traffic) around London so allow plenty of time to get to the airport. You have been warned.
Overall, the budget airlines are great value for money (don't expect any frills) and are doing very well in Europe.
