There’s nothing more annoying that constant reminders about events you are not planning to attend, so for my readers who are not going to PubCon, I apologise.

However if you are planning on hitting Vegas next week, I’d like to meet you so here’s a list of the available out-of-hours events to date. I’ll try and keep this page updated but make sure to follow Joseph Morin (PubCon Evangelist) on Twitter for all late breaking party & events info.

  1. Thanks Nick!
    If you don’t mind a little link spam,

    This is a list of events that everyone is invited to!

    You guys especially!

    Much Love,

  2. I think you’re linking to the 2007 Werewolf party, hence the “sold out” note. I believe Gillian still has spots left. :-)

  3. @dk No problem – feel free to linkspam me :)


    Ah there is a note on that page which says “The SEOmoz Pubcon 2008 Wherewolf Party is now full and no longer accepting reservations.” Very glad to hear it’s still open, I’ve sent Gillian an email and amended the post. BTW Anna says she’s learnt the rules now and promises not to announce to the mod who she’s killing ;)
