We’re happy to announce that our next conference will be PubCon South at Austin in the spring of 2011, as the premier search and social media conference returns to the technology capital of Texas on March 8 – 9, 2011.
An extraordinarily talented group of the key players who are shaping the future of the Web and social media will come together for PubCon South at Austin 2011 and converge on the Norris Executive Conference Center for exciting cutting-edge multi-track sessions and networking events.
For 2011 we’ll offer an expanded PubCon South at Austin, with new tracks and sessions, top keynote speakers, and our popular intensive professional PubCon Masters Group search and social media training programs, which will all combine in March to form a very special PubCon conference experience.
We’ve conveniently scheduled our spring conference to make it easy to come to Texas for the search and social media magic of PubCon South at Austin 2011, and stay for Austin’s world-famous South by Southwest music, film and interactive festival (http://www.SXSW.com,) and expect this powerhouse dual-draw lineup to be a huge win-win situation for all PubCon attendees.
A slate of dozens of conference panel discussions and diverse multiple topic tracks will combine with top keynotes, unique sessions, industry exhibitors, training programs, and our famous lineup of networking events and parties to make PubCon South at Austin 2011 a must-attend event.

In addition to being the capital of Texas, Austin is the home of many tech giants including Dell Computers and Advanced Micro Designs (AMD). Many large technology research and office centers such as for Samsung, IBM, Freescale, National Instruments, and Motorola are also located in Austin, making PubCon South at Austin 2011 a great choice for attendees.
Austin’s unique combination of hardware, software, and an abundance of dot coms, makes the city one of the most vibrant and active tech centers outside of the Silicon Valley, and Austin also serves as the gateway city to the beautiful Texas Hill Country with it’s wall-to-wall trees and spectacular rolling countryside.
As one of the great party and music towns in the U.S., Austin has been said to offer more live bands playing on a Friday night per capita than any other city in the world, especially during the time PubCon South at Austin 2011 will take place.
After PubCon, stick around for SXSW, one of the biggest original music, independent film and emerging technology events, and make March 2011 a month to remember.
In 2009 we held our first conference in Austin, which was widely regarded as one of the most successful PubCon events in our decade-plus history, a feat we plan to top with a very special PubCon South at Austin 2011.
We look forward to seeing you in sunny Austin on March 8 – 9 for PubCon South at Austin 2011.
