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)
Problems with Pay Pal as well! South Africans are excluded in the drop down.
Had to sign up as a member and am waiting for my membership number to authenticate account!
Dont want to missout 'cause of a technicality ;) Any other methods of payment - Brett, it would be interesting to see you cash a SA cheque :)
and go and see the dogs race - this is real british
we don't tend to sit on buses for 4 hours a day (unless i's raining really badly)
we have a laugh at the races and then go to some warm pub a laugh until we get kecked out
what i'm trying to say is this,
i don't want loads of americans coming to london and sitting on tour buses
i want loads of americans coming to london - having a laugh, betting on the dogs (pound a race) and enjoying the life the way we do
well thats my piece, i'm going to pubcon2 and i hope all you guys who have made the real effort to get there are going to have an amazing time
Wimbledon Stadium have said this: From 3rd October 2002 we'll be racing every Thursday evening.
if anyones up for the dogs then post your reply here or better still STICKY me
hmmm .... i've seen jerry springer so maybe keeping them on a bus aint such a bad idea :)
but more seriously, if anyone's interested in a bus tour, try the big bus company at www.bigbus.co.uk. they are very good. i had friends come over from denmark a couple of years back and took them on a tour with big bus co. cost is £15 per adult for whole day. get on and off as much as you like. they do group discounts for groups of 10 or more (price on application), so maybe someone can sort something out? tickets can be booked online as well.
i'd recommend you use all 3 routes and stop off to visit the tower of london. if you can get back to trafalgar square by 7pm, join the ghosts by gaslight pub crawl (2 hours). you won't really have time for much else.
it's a shame people are coming all this way then going home 2 days later. there is so much to see in london that a bus tour will only just scratch the surface. there's even more outside london. i've lived here 33 years and i've still not seen everything. if you can make it back here next year, try and book up for longer.
The top tourist attactions are always a good start to see many of those places you've heard about, but, that really is scratching the surface.
While you are at the conference, grab some of the "locals" and they'll give you their tips.
I look forward to meeting you there.
If in doubt, hang the expense and stay overnight, you never know what will be discussed at the breakfast table:)
Thialand, singapore, australia, belgium. I think there is also one from Brazil(?). There are two others on the fence from south korea.
