The premier networking event of the 2007 Webmasterworld Pubcon Conference was not anywhere near the convention center but instead at the Venetian Poker room! There was almost 200 people in the tournament and those that were not playing were networking and having a good time.
I was lucky enough to place 2nd in the tournament and take home $1,985.00. Well… I think I only managed to take home about $500 which wont even cover the taxes but we had 1 hell of a night! (with no sleep)
BTW: I am wearing sunglasses cause I had PRK Lasek Eye surgery only 1 week before and my eyes were super light sensitive. (and it was bright in that place)
I have been working recently with Dr David Klein about this years event and how we (fighters.com) can be a sponsor. DK has been working hard on this years event and it should be every bit as awesome as last years. This morning he sent me an initial graphic they are working on. So mark it now on your calendars November 13th 2008 at the Venetian hotel. Its going to be a great time and really a win win… either you go far in the tournament or your standing around networking! win win.
Again this event last year was by far the best party/networking event of Pubcon. Many people were saying it had a lot more value then the conference it self (as most networking events do).
I encourage companies looking for a ton of exposure to sponsor this years event. Its a very low cost and DK knows how to do an event right!
P.S. You don’t have to be a professional SEO to play in the tournament! Otherwise I would not have been able to play 😉
