Every year, in the later part of September, Munich hosts the largest festival in the world called Oktoberfest.
Over 6 million people come together over 16 days to drink, sing, and celebrate in one of the 14 tents assembled throughout Munich.
A close friend of mine Marcus Tandler (Mediadonis) with Quadszilla (SEO Blackhat), decided to put together a small mini-conference during Oktoberfest called SEOktoberfest.
Around 20 people of the top internet minds will spend 2 days sharing ideas and drinking at the table reserved in the Hippodrom, considered one of the trendiest tents in Munich.
It is an honor to be invited as one of the experts at SEOktoberfest, as well as experience Oktoberfest in one of the hottest tents in Munich.
Confirmed attendees for SEOktoberfest are Joost de Valk (Yoast), Bob Rains (Let’s Make It Awesome), and Brian Clark (Copyblogger).
Edit: Just in… Greg and Barbara Boser (3 Dog Media), as well as Dax (BiggNuts), have also confirmed they are attending SEOktoberfest.
Wish me luck…
Good luck, but I’m completely jealous. 😉
Not cool! I want to go! I was in Germany last September but can’t go this year 🙁
Man, that sounds like a blast. With Rhea on this one.
nice one Brent. I can see this being a useful trip for the attendees. I just don’t know how being drunk and SEO tie together that well!
Nick I guess you have not been to too many conferences… the best information is gained at the bars…
We actually only drink in the evenings. We are at a round table away from the tents during the day for the mini-conference. We head to the tents once the work is done.
I am dying of envy too. I wish I could have convinced my girlfriend of the benefits of discussing SEO at the Oktoberfest, difficult task though!
Here’s looking forward to hear more about the conference and outcomes… I am personally in favour of these events as there is no better way to learn than from discussing and sharing views with other practitioners, plus a bit of fun in the evenings doenst harm as long as you are not the thirsty type : )
That’s very cool idea! I love the idea of 2 days on a table talking about SEO 🙂
Seeing that very first photo brought back memories of years past. my parents had taken my to Oktoberfest events since as long as I could remember. You guys are going to have a terrific time!
What a great idea! I had the priviledge of being at Oktoberfest last year, and can’t think of when I had time to fit in work let alone a conference.
ps the Hippodrom is amazing and will be PACKED
Brent, will you share any of the presumably good tips/tricks discussed during the SEO sessions? or any good SEO trends ? otherwise most readers will think that the SEOcktoberfest was just an excuse to go there and drink beer? : )
Thanks for your insights at the SEOktoberfest. And your humor. 🙂
Hope to see you next year again.
