It was great! This year the Webmaster World PubCon Networking event was moved from the Nine Fine Irishmen Pub (which during the past events got so crowded it felt like it was built for nine customers) in the New York New York Hotel and Casino, to the Brew Pub at the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino. I am very happy for this move. Thank you Brett.
This place was great because of all the room and space it had. In past years, the Nine Irishmen got so crowded and packed with “networking marketers” that everyone had to get very intimate with many strangers in order to get around. I used to try and find a good chair in the corner and see who came to me. This year though, everyone could move freely, with many entrances and exits, friendly bar staff. I really got a good chance to chat with everyone I hoped to this year and was able to meet some good new connections. I was a bit saddened when it was over after about 3 hours but while it was going it was the best PubCon I’ve been too in four.
About an hour in to the event, Danny Sullivan shows up! He must have chartered a jet from the Chicago SES event to get there that quick but I for one was real happy to see him make it.
Here is a link to the PubCon page. See ya next year at it.
