Pubcon South 2013 : New Orleans!


 We asked: Where would you like us to hold our spring 2013 Pubcon conference?


 You answered: NEW ORLEANS!


You spoke – we listened! Far-and-away the clear winner of the survey was New Orleans! Thank you so much for taking time to take our survey – you totally made the difference in our planning. NOLA (New Orleans, LA) was about 3rd on our internal destination list. We did not realize how much demand there was to go back to NOLA! (The winner of the Gold pass drawing for NOLA will be drawn at Pubcon Las Vegas during one of the keynotes.) tip: Pubcon is a marathon – not a sprint! So lets do this:

Brett Tabke – founder and chair of Pubcon said, “As the home of this season’s Super Bowl, and with so many other good signs — it is clear that New Orleans is back! The layout for Pubcon at the New Orleans convention center is the best conference setups we have ever had. The exhibit hall and keynote room will be held in the stately La Nouvelle Ballroom. Right next to it are a grand lobby, session rooms, and a handy outdoor balcony – all tightly packed together. Additionally, there are hotels that are right across the street from the convention center. Networking opportunities will be outstanding.”
