Several of us from AuthorityLabs will be hanging out and available during these events, so come find us and say hi. If you’re new to Pubcon or just need a refresher, check out these tips on surviving Vegas.
Let us know if you have an event or know of an event that we need to add to this list. We’ll be keeping it updated as plans evolve and more details become available.

Pubcon Kickoff Classic – Pubcon Badge Required
Where: South Hall Las Vegas Convention Center
When: 5:30-8 pm

Tuesday, October 22
Where: Observation Deck, Stratosphere Hotel
When: Reception starts at 7 pm, dinner at 8 pm.
Why: #EpicDinner is always a great event, has great food, and gets better every time. This year it’s at the top of the Stratosphere tower, which provides one of the best views in Vegas.
Purpose Inc SEO Poker Tournament
Where: The Mirage Hotel and Casino
When: 9:00 pm
Why: DK loves hosting events like this. It will be great networking whether you play poker or not. Every year for the past 7 years, there has been a poker tournament during Pubcon and every one of them has been a great event. During the tournament this year, players and guests will be connected with each other based on the problems and solutions of each attendee. DK said, “It is real simple. The main reason people come to Pubcon, and to the Poker Tourney, is to network. We are breaking
the ice in a meaningful way, so people can find the answers to the problems they are looking for. Check out the Facebook page or head on over and get signed up.
DK is also hinting at a secret back room talk, but we don’t have info yet.
