pubcon does dallas

I will be leaving Tuesday April 13th to speak & moderate at PubCon South, an Internet Marketing conference in Dallas, that continues until Thursday April 15th.

PubCon Dallas is a multi-track technology conference with an extensive program of educational, highly topical sessions, where cutting-edge Internet marketing knowledge hot topics and trends are shared with attendees.

What makes this conference special beyond the sessions themselves are the people that attend and speak, in my opinion, such as but not limited only to:

  • Brett Tabke – Founder of PubCon & WebmasterWorld who enjoys the beer more when the Dallas Mavericks win
  • Neil Marshall – Director of WebmasterWorld Forum Operations who you can see walking around PubCon making sure everything goes smoothly
  • Joe Morin – The Grand Marshall of parties and post conference entertainment, he often has the largest suite in the conference hotel & hosts the after parties
  • Jeff Randall – Director of Operations at PubCon & founded Clever Web Marketing, you will often see him with his camera stealthfully taking pictures for the event
  • Vanessa Zamora – Video Content Producer of WebmasterWorld that is often conducting video interviews or running the PubCon booth at the show
  • Rae Hoffman – aka Sugarrae, the CEO of both MFE Interactive & Outspoken Media, will speak bluntly but with a purpose as the Coors Light flows and country music plays
  • Lyndon Reid – aka Canadian Spy, making his initial PubCon speaking debut in Dallas but a true PubCon party veteran & a central figure in any after conference parties
  • Aaron Kronis -aka SEO Rockstar, runs Digital Vegetarian & an excellent guitar player / singer plus pulls a double speaking duty at PubCon South
