December Internet Industry Tradeshows
There are two major industry tradeshows coming up in early December.
Pubcon (Las Vegas) and
Strategies (Chicago) both promise to provide Web business professionals
loads of valuable information they can use to achieve success online.
Pubcon is one of the most popular
industry tradeshows for serious Web professionals. A six-track educational
conference (with exposition hall), PubCon covers many topics important to Web
success including search, Web 2.0, 'Net marketing, SEO/SEM, affiliates,
domainers, video, multimedia and general "webmastery". Keynotes for the Las
Vegas Pubcon include Craig Newmark of Craigslist, Richard Rosenblatt of Demand
Media and Matt Cutts of Google.
Engine Strategies is a mainstay of Internet industry tradeshows and one that
the Website Magazine team looks forward to each time it comes around. Directly
from the official site - "Four and a half days of search, all search and
nothing but search. SES is the biggest and oldest conference in this space.
Seasoned search maven or hopeful newbie, you'll find speakers who share
expertise, new research, horizon's edge views and knuckles-in-the code tactics."
Does it get any better than that? Keynotes are Don Schulz and Seth Godin.
One more thing! I will be speaking tomorrow at the CM Pros Fall 20067 Summit in Boston. The event explores Web content management technologies and their impact on the way Web professionals work. My presentation, "Social Media Optimization; Digg, Del.icio.us and Beyond" will benefit those with an interest in SMO and intrigue (or at least entertain) those with more experience.
