Tips on Networking at #Pubcon Las Vegas 2015

We have a lot of tips for you today. First, we have networking tips from the Pubcon Facebook group and then we have our “Pubcon Survival Tips” hangout video with Dave Rohrer & Simone Heseltine, which is full of tips for networking, making the most out of the conference and handling the after-conference activities.

Simon Heseltine  – Speaking in Vegas

“Talk to people in the first place… ..and don’t be afraid of talking to the speakers… but maybe not constantly about online marketing,”

Jenny HalaszSpeaking in Vegas

“Tweet. And meet people who tweet. We’re a friendly bunch.”

Sean Dolan

“Don’t be too cool to admit you’re looking to hang out with people. It’s a friendly bunch.”

Ashley WardSpeaking in Vegas

I’ve made a few great connections at the Monday night networking party, people I stayed connected with throughout the conference

Ryan JonesSpeaking in Vegas

I’ve met a lot of people just by tweeting on the #pubcon hash tag. Something like “I’m going to the buffet or this bar, or blackjack.. anybody want to tag along?”

Melissa Fach Speaking in Vegas

Don’t be afraid to ask someone to introduce you to someone you have wanted to meet for a long time.

Alan BleiweissSpeaking in Vegas

“Go to the plethora of networking events! Show up – introduce yourself. Be respectful of not interrupting.”

Trish Carey

“Monday night networking event & Twitter! I’ve always attended solo and was especially worried my 1st year how I would meet people.”
