Pubcon NOLA: Prizes, Beads, and Beer From AuthorityLabs

Pubcon New Orleans is less than two weeks away! Several of us from AuthorityLabs will be hanging out around the conference and, of course, Bourbon Street.

Like always, AuthorityLabs is here to bring the swag; and in classic NOLA fashion. We’re bringing ALL THE BEADS! But really though, there will be insane amounts of orange beads…

Pubcon NOLA Beads

Not only will we be passing out hundreds of Mardi Gras throw beads, there will also be beads with AuthorityLabs medallions, and beads with lanyard clips to give your badges an especially NOLA feel.

Not only do the medallions look great, but they will get you free stuff too! If an AuthorityLabs team member sees you wearing a one of our medallions on Bourbon street we will give you a random special prize. These prizes can be beer, fun swag, and even cold-hard-ca$h.

So don’t forget to pack your masks, shamrock socks, and Advil, because Pubcon NOLA is just around the corner. We’ll see you there!

It’ll be my first time there and I can’t wait to meet so many new people and hang out with all the Phoenix folk who’ll be there. Austin is a fantastic town with tons of energy. The music scene is second to none, the tech scene is vibrant and the people there are amazing.

I’m not quite sure what to expect with this. I think I’ll just play it by ear. The people I’m traveling, and have arranged to stay with all seem to be ‘in the know’ somewhat and I know if I try and plan anything it’s just gonna get thrown out the minute I get there. Besides … that’s what Twitter’s for.
