Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Google is offering two tracks, Beginner & Intermediate, and Intermediate & Advanced. None other than our own AdWords rockstar, eWhisper, is leading several of the advanced classes, which should be rewarding for those attending.
More details here:
It should be a good way to educate AdWords users about the product.
Attendees will be receiving 3rd party information (and thus, it can be opinionated) and recommendations that Google couldn't give themselves.
Should be a very good time (of course, I have to say that :) )
