PubCon, the premier search and social media conference and expo,
holds multi-track events in various United States and European cities,
always including a November conference at the Las Vegas Convention
Center in sunny
Las Vegas, Nevada.
PubCon, supported by the industry's leading businesses,
speakers, exhibitors, and sponsors involved in social media, Internet marketing,
search engines, and online advertising, will offer a week-long look at the
future of technology presented by many of the world's top speakers.
PubCon conferences are some of the biggest and boldest gathering
of search and social media innovators ever assembled, offering an
unrivaled highly-productive conference experience at cost-effective rates,
and with the leading technology and online marketing visionaries who
take part in PubCon, every attendee comes away with
valuable new ideas and solutions for their businesses.
PubCon truly starts where other search and social media conferences end,
and during our Las Vegas conference in November a rare vision for the future
will be presented by a virtual who's who of technology. Join thousands of
leading search and social media professionals for a PubCon conference,
and learn more about the event with the information on this page, including
the following PubCon video.
All of our keynote speakers will bring their inspiring and groundbreaking
search and social media insight to PubCon. Look for
announcements about very special keynote speakers for upcoming PubCon
Many of these top speakers consider
PubCon to be their favorite event, and their enthusiasm for PubCon will be
apparent as attendees will be treated to insights and research that just
won't be shared at any other conference but PubCon.
We feel that it's important for PubCon attendees to gain valuable "take-aways"
from sessions, and that’s why we provide every full conference pass
holder with a CD containing the conference presentation files, mailed
out immediately after the conclusion of PubCon, as a way to say thank
you and to
help you keep implementing the plans and insight presented in our sessions
throughout the year and long into the future.
At PubCon Twitter and other social media
services will play a larger role than ever.
All aspects of successfully using Twitter and location-aware services
such as FourSquare and Gowalla will be covered by marketing, social media,
search and programming experts, with multiple tracks featuring sessions
such as "Killer Twitter Apps, Services, and API Trends," "Experts
on PR and Twitter," and other unique offerings such as "Twitter Landscape
- Hot Trends and Topics," that promise to take social media insight
to new heights.
"PubCon is going to be so well-documented on Twitter," Google head of
Web spam Matt Cutts
said at our PubCon South event in Austin, Texas. His prediction came true
as discussion about PubCon using the #PubCon hash tag became Twitter's most
popular term for a period during that conference, and conference-goers enjoyed
tweeting questions to speakers and fellow audience members during many sessions,
a trend that has continued to an even greater extent during recent
