WebMasterWorld Conference Coverage
I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be attending the WebmasterWorld’s Conference. I hope to be able to provide the conference coverage I have in the past for this conference, I actually plan on it, so stay tuned. The conference begins tomorrow morning and ends Thursday afternoon. It looks like the wi-fi access is not to be found, so that means I hope there will be a press/speaker room with net access or I will have to run back to my room to post the session information – I did it before, but the trips between the session rooms and the hotel can get tiring.
Brett started off explaining how the conference began in pubs and bars and now it has grown to this (looks to me to be about 1,000 attendees here). He thanked Matthew for all his support, he then thanked Todd (oilman) who handled all the exhibitors (over 30 exhibitors) – he also attended all of the WMW conference (maybe the only), Erica – his finance – getting married in three weeks, thanked Neal Mashall the main webmaster at WMW, he thanked the sponsors (infosearch (also known as trafficlogic), Google, Yahoo, and GenieKnows.com), he also thanked some of the press that showed up Wall Street Journal, NY Times and many others (he even mentioned my name – thanks), he thanked the moderators of the sessions.
He said he will ship the ppt slides on a CD to all attendees, will give away an IPOD to one person. He then highlighted some of the upcoming sessions. He said also that Google will explain the new AdWord Professional program tomorrow at lunch. And Yahoo will be having a party tomorrow night. He then discussed about the new Webmaster Radio show which is launching today at WebmasterRadio.FM.
He explained what “Super Sessions” and why there are no other sessions at the same time besides for the super sessions. When will the next WMW conference take place? Probably after April 15th, place is still unknown for sure.
FYI – Got WiFi working, a bit slow, but working. Also a bit expensive at $25 per day.
