Advisory Board


Pubcon Advisory Board

The Pubcon Advisory Board was created in the fall of 2007.

The Advisory Board is a resource network of leading conference experts who have agreed to participate in the planning and guidance of Pubcon events. The board will advise the Pubcon chair committee on strategic planning and give expert input on the decision-making process.

The people on the Pubcon Advisory Board were invited to participate, not as simply a list of big industry names, but because of their individual talent and successful history with leading conferences. As a group, the Pubcon Advisory Board members have collectively attended more than 3,000 conferences.
