Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
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)

Watch out London!
My company has done two conferences a year for our clients; one in the winter and one in the summer. The Bar Conference happened to be on the same weekend as our winter conference, so I couldn't attend. Or at least I thought it just "happened!"
But this year we decided to switch to just one conference a year, and moved it to the fall. So of course just a few weeks after the date is finalized, the Pub Conference is on the same weekend!
Coincidence? Or conspiracy?

Any chances of getting one of these going in the U.S. ? I sure would be willing to help orchestrate something. It's hard for a 20 year old to pay for a plane ticket to get to London.
