Hey, guess what? It’s almost time for everyone to head to Vegas for PubCon 2011. I know; it’s pure madness. We just wrapped up our SearchLove liveblogging and I’m still in LA getting ready to speak at BlogWorld tomorrow afternoon. But the search industry waits for no man (or woman). In just a few days you’ll be able to catch a large part of the Outspoken Media contingent in Vegas. Who will be there, who’s speaking where and what sessions can you expect us to cover?
You’ll find all the answers you’re looking for below.
Because PubCon Vegas is the biggest, baddest conference of the year, we thought it appropriate to bring several members of the Outspoken Media crew with us. That means you’ll get to hang out with myself, Rhea, Danika, and Michelle. If you’re going to be in town, make sure you find us to say hello and grab a drink. I’ll probably need one. I mean, we’ll need one. Right. We.
You’ll catch Rhea speaking on a couple of sessions during PubCon, like Tuesday’s Reputation Management: Monitoring Your Brand Online panel and then again on Thursday when she speaks on Protecting Your Brand – Competitive Intel and The Power of Social Media Lies in the Community. Make sure you grab some face time with Outspoken Media’s CEO.
Because I’m getting old and decrepit, this year I’ll be splitting the liveblogging duties with Outspoken Media’s Operations Manager (and Unofficial Content Goddess) Michelle Lowery. You can find our schedule, plus who’s blogging what (in case stalking is your thing) below.
