Here at Search Influence, we’re excited to hear that Pubcon is coming back to New Orleans! In September, Pubcon announced that they will be coming to New Orleans for their spring 2013 conference (they must have heard about all the exciting stuff happening at the SI offices). Dubbed “Pubcon New Orleans 2013,” the conference will be held at the New Orleans Convention Center on April 22 – 25th.

Pubcon is one of the leading social media and search marketing conferences, famous for groundbreaking keynote speakers such as Matt Cutts and Guy Kawasaki. As a local New Orleans SEO & online marketing firm, Search Influence is thrilled at the opportunity to help bring recognition to New Orleans as a burgeoning homesite for our industry. “As the home of this season’s Super Bowl, and with so many other good signs — it is clear that New Orleans is back! The layout for Pubcon at the New Orleans convention center is the best conference setups we have ever had.” says Brett Tabke, founder and chair of Pubcon.

Our CEO Will Scott says “I’ve taken part in Pubcon for the last 2 years in Las Vegas and I’m very excited they chose New Orleans for their spring show. I’ve been lobbying on twitter, and I’m glad the will of the people matched my own. I’m especially excited at the opportunity for our team to be exposed to some of the best online marketers on the planet. The learning that will come out of this will really add value to our team and our client campaigns.”

What the planning committee for Pubcon didn’t realize (or maybe that they very smartly planned…) is that the conference will be held during one of the most exciting times in New Orleans. The first weekend of Jazz Fest will start the day after the conference ends, on April 26th. For those who haven’t had the opportunity to come to New Orleans, this is the perfect chance to visit during an exciting and informative conference followed by a weekend of great music, food, and festing.
