If I can’t afford to go to SMX in Seattle I will at least get an Expo-only pass and be there. Many people have been wondering if the event is worth going to if you get the 25 dollar Expo-only pass. I can answer that question. It is now!
I am pleased to announce the inaugural ROWYEoPo “Rock out with your Expo-only Pass Out” search expo side event. This event will take place in the parking lot of the lovely Bell Harbor International Conference Center in Seattle, WA.
In the case of things like wind, rain, security guards, or police presence getting in the way, the festivities will occur in a clump of trees near the water side of the property where there is partial rain cover (email me for location of “special access point” where the security fence will be temporarily open).
Say You Were There! It’ll be the first ROWYEoPo. You might not tell your kids about it, nor do I think this is the main reason to attend, but there’s a cachet in having been one of the original parking lot lushes outside a successful conference series. This gives you bragging rights to say you were there.
Those wise enough to register early will reap the rewards of cheaper 40 ouncers.
If you register…
Before May 8th : MGD- $1.19 / Mickeys- $1.09
Before June 1st : MGD- $1.29 / Mickeys- $1.19
On Site : MGD- $1.39 / Mickeys- $1.29
Those registering early will also be eligible to participate in what has been dubbed “the networking event of the century” which will be held at a secret location (I am not sure which hostel I will be staying at yet, so the location will be announced later – Either the Green Tortoise or Hostelling International, both of which are right downtown). Remember hostels = hot foreign girls/guys who drink alot and will only be around a couple of days. I like that. You will too.
Why attend ROWYEoPo? - Two words…
But that’s not all….
Maile Ohye of Google… can not attend, but the raccoon pictured with her has agreed to make an appearance if I give it beer. Nothing says party like a raccoon with a 40.
We will be having two debates that will occur at the same time as the two SMX debates taking place in the uppity “we are better than you” building.
Hear industry leaders socking it out over the cutting edge, must have information of search.
Day one: (4:15 – 5:15ish) – Lisa Barone or Rebecca Kelley, who’s hotter?
Day two: (4:15 – 5:10) – Could Peter Parker use his spider powers on search engines?
Partial Agenda: Not all events are in stone yet.
8:45-9.00 – Hide in bushes and throw M&Ms at full conference pass holders going to the first event. Then giggle about it (M&Ms not provided).
11:45 – Group moon the people who just got out of You&A With Matt Cutts
11:50 – 1:15 – Lunch & Expo hall opens (We get to exist now, sweet!)
1:30 – 2.30 – Farting contest
2:30 – 2:45 – Loser of farting contest has to go get more ice for my cooler.
2:45 -3:45 – Beer pong with foreign hot girls from hostel! (cups not provided, ping pong balls not provided, beer not provided, table not provided, not 100 percent on the “foreign hot girls” yet)
JÃ¤germeister, making fun of people, flirt with hotties.
We are the future of search. Let’s get to know each other!
Okay, so we can’t afford the event, but that doesn’t mean we are bad. We will be able to afford the next one, so until then, lets party like rock stars! Let’s unite and work together to outrank the bastards who could afford this one. Buy me beer and I will do just about anything you want. Beer for me = links for you. Need quality content creation for your blog or website? Buy me beer! Wanna see someone dress like Raggedy Ann and walk around smacking people with a foam bat? Buy me beer, I ain’t scared.
I still may be able to afford the full event and if I can, please ignore what I have written above and be aware of this…If I have a full conference pass I will not hesitate to call security if any grangly, bottom feeding, “expo-only” pieces of filth try to cause any trouble.
