LondonSEO is a quarterly networking meet-up for internet marketing professionals of all sorts (not just SEOs!) to have fun, drink far too much and make new friends in the industry. The meet-ups started in 2005 (yes that long ago) and are still going strong.
Our SES06 Hijack Not-a-PubCon Pissup was originally gonna be on Wednesday 31st, but last night on WebmasterRadio’s chat room during StrikePoint, Dave Naylor asked if we could do it on Thursday 1st June instead, because he has dinner plans Wednesday night.
So not wanting to come between DaveN and his food, we’ve switched to Thursday night.
Well now that most of us are over our hangovers brought on by Friday night’s Olympic session of drinking and SEO blagging I think it is appropriate to post a few highlights and photos so that we might all remember how we behaved this past Friday night.
Mike was able to make it out even though his wife had just given birth to a beautiful baby girl the previous Sunday and we all applauded that level of dedication to the cause with an inaugural round of drinks and an attempt to find our table.
Once we were nicely settled,
the 22 or so attendees began some serious discussion,
some serious drinking,
and some serious fun.
Later in the evening there was an apperance by the infamous N-I-K
but he obviously wasn’t feeling as generous with his time as usual.
As the evening wore on the music got louder (not entirely sure how that was possible) and the clientele started to get their groove on atop any surface available.
It was sadly at this point that our little party began to breakup.
All in all, it was a fantastic night of SEOcialisation with a healthy amount of new faces as well as old.
Several folks have expressed interest in having another bash in April so the organization of that is in the works as I type.
Perhaps it will even be at the Cittie Of Yorke.
In parting , I sincerely hope everyone that couldn’t make it to this blessed event is significantly disgusted with themselves that they will drag themselves out in April.
If anyone is interested in seeing all of the pictures from Friday night, feel free.
