It’s time for one of the biggest and baddest search events of the year – PubCon Las Vegas! Oh yes, baby. I suggest you start hydrating and stocking up on sleep now, because there won’t be any once you arrive.
PubCon Las Vegas is a favorite among a lot of folks in the industry. Yes, everyone loves a reason to hit Vegas, but PubCon is known for pulling all the elusive industry veterans out of their caves and throwing them up on stage for public consumption. That means not only are the panels chock filled with information, but the knowledge transfer you get at night while everyone is enjoying their adult beverages, well…it’s priceless.
I’m really excited that all four (yes, FOUR!) Outspoken ladies will be in attendance in Vegas. If you’ll be at the show, you can catch both Rhea and Rae hitting the podium. Rhea will be speaking on Thursday’s Reputation Monitoring and Management panel, while Rae will take the stage for Tuesday’s Hot Topics and Trends in the Affiliate Space, as well as the SEO, Affiliate and Lead Gen site review. You’ll definitely want to be around for those.
I will, of course be around to deliver some informative and snarky liveblogging coverage. You can find my schedule below. And most exciting for us – PubCon Las Vegas will be out first public appearance with new Senior Account Manager, Dawn Wentzell. If you see her, please run up and introduce yourself. But please do not scare her. She is ours now and I will kill you if you damage her.
