PubCon Las Vegas to Feature Keynote Address by vBulletin Parent Company CEO Bob Brisco
We are proud to announced that Bob Brisco will present a keynote speech at PubCon in Las Vegas on November 10-13, 2009. For the past 10 years Brisco has been the chief executive for Internet Brands, the parent company of Jelsoft Enterprises Limited, maker of the market-leading message forum software vBulletin.
With Internet Brands’ Web sites averaging some 50 million unique visitors monthly, Brisco is certain to deliver an exciting and informative keynote speech at PubCon, the search engine and Internet social media marketing conference and expo.
Under Brisco Internet Brands acquired vBulletin – the wildly successful forum software that continues to surpass even open source software. Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld said, “vBulletin is a category killer – they own the forum software space on the web. The new modularity of vBulletin pushes it into the realm of a web platform. The line between a strong vBulletin community installation and a major social networking site like Facebook, is thinner than ever before. The future possiblities for vBulletin are simply amazing; they are WordPress meets-Blogger meets-Facebook.”
Internet Brands is also well known in the webmaster space for their ownership of the Flyer Talk community. It is one of the most successful Web message forums and one of only a select few forums to be acquired on the web in the last five years.
Brisco has extensive experience in building and expanding successful organizations that will benefit all PubCon attendees. Prior to joining Internet Brands Brisco was president of Universal Studios Hollywood and CityWalk, where he oversaw all aspects of the business, including operations, sales, technology, marketing, entertainment and finance.
Brisco was responsible for more than $1 billion in revenue while serving as senior vice president of advertising, marketing and new business development for The Los Angeles Times, where he directed the launch of LATimes.com and the acquisition of Hollywood.com.
Brisco was a natural keynote speaker choice for PubCon, as the successful vBulletin software has grown since 2000 to become a leading online community for thousands of major Web sites. Come hear Brisco at PubCon in Las Vegas, and take advantage of special Early Bird conference pass pricing available now.
