Getting .SOCIAL at Pubcon 2014

It begins: Pubcon 2014 is underway in Las Vegas! When it comes to social media and search optimization, this is the event to be at this year. Pubcon, which runs through October 9, has been named as a must-attend conference by Forbes, and Rightside is proud to be a gold sponsor of this year’s event.

In addition to sponsoring the conference, we did what we do best by providing Pubcon with the perfect web address for the event’s social media community: Pubcon lives at the cutting edge of technology and ingenuity, so the choice of the new .SOCIAL domain for the conference’s platform that allows attendees to connect online fits right in.

Attendees are in for a full week filled with speakers from startups, big business, social media, digital marketing, and other corners of the digital world. Here are just a few of the leaders who will be sharing their expertise at this year’s conference:

  • Mel Carson (Majestic SEO)
  • Ted Murphy (IZEA)
  • Jay Baer (Convince & Convert)
  • Duane Forrester (Microsoft / Bing)
  • Jason Calacanis ( / LAUNCH)
  • Chris Brogan (Owner Media Group)

With such a variety of experts working in so many different parts of industry, this gathering is about getting the most innovative perspectives all in one place, and inspiring people to take their brands to the next level. Given the Vegas venue, Pubcon is also a good bet for some of the year’s best networking opportunities.
