Vegas, Baby! AIMCLEAR to Speak, Cover, Party @ #PubCon ’11


Well kids, it’s that time of year again! When hardcore search nerds and beloved tech rockstars from every walk of the online marketing industry flock to America’s playground and gear up for a week of keynotes, in-depth sessions, discussion panels, mad-crazy networking events, and a little R&R along the Strip. Yes, it’s time for a true obligatory-must-attend conference: PubCon Vegas, baby.

During November 7 – 10, the Center South Hall of the lovely Las Vegas Convention will be overrun with our kind of folks ready to soak up some serious knowledge. Marty Weintraub (@AIMCLEAR), Merry Morud (@MerryMorud), Lindsay Schleisman (@lindsaylorraine), Molly Ryan (@mollycryan), and yours truly, Lauren Litwinka (@beebow) are heading west to Sin City, where we’ll represent the AIMCLEAR team in style – up at the podium and in the crowd. Marty will drop some brain-bombs during the Keyword Research, Selection and Optimization, Facebook Today, and How SMBs Can Use PR Campaigns to Grow Traffic sessions while us gals tear up the Twitersphere with live coverage comin’ atcha straight from the show.

Read on for a closer look at Marty’s panels and the sessions that are really catching our eye.
