FAQ About Pubtelligence

Do Publishers Have To Pay To Attend Pubtelligence?

There is no cost to attend Pubtelligence whatsoever.

The event is application-only (but anyone can apply to attend). If your application is approved, you will receive a full access pass to the full event agenda.

Breakfast, lunch, and happy hour are all complimentary for attendees as well.

The event is provided to publishers cost-free by Google, SEMrush, & Ezoic (purely as organizers, not sponsors) and is designed to be a day of learning for a diverse group of digital publishers of all sizes and niches.

Attendees will be responsible for their own travel and lodging.

Where Should We Stay For The Event?

The event is being held at Google offices in London. Below, are nearby hotels that are a short walk from their location.

Why Applications To Attend?

Pubtelligence is an extremely popular event and we typically reach capacity quickly.

Previous events have been held at Google offices in San Francisco and New York. While we are trying to increase the number of these events — and diversify where they are held — we are committed to maintaining an extremely diverse and high-quality audience to ensure that the value of the event remains up to the standard we have set at previous events.

Pubtelligence is designed to bring smart publishers, experts, and thought leaders together in one place for the expressed purpose of learning and growing.

We want to bring together as many different kinds of publishers and website owners as possible to ensure that the event is rich and enlightening for everyone. To do this, we have to have an application process.

We know that’s not fun, but we promise the approval process happens really fast, so you won’t have to wait to find out 😉

Is Pubtelligence Worth My Time?

We sure hope so!

Our exit surveys from previous events show a 100% “yes” rating on the question “Was Pubtelligence Worth Your Time Today?”

Pubtelligence was very thoughtfully crafted by teams at Google and Ezoic. +98% of past event attendees have asked to be invited again and 94.6% said they would be willing to travel across the globe just to join!

The event is designed to be informative, enlightening, and interactive for publishers and website owners of all shapes and sizes.

We’ve collected feedback from every event and use that to improve Pubtelligence. For example, last time we heard that publishers wanted to see more case studies, expert discussion on SEO, and opportunities to network informally. Pubtelligence West has incorporated all of this feedback.

We think this combination of education, insights, and interactivity will give all attendees the ability to dive deep into new discoveries about their digital properties.

We believe this will result in unprecedented opportunities to develop growth strategies and discover new techniques for developing your business.

Can I See A Preview of What To Expect?


This is a video recorded at Pubtelligence West last year at Google in San Fransisco.

Can I Bring A Guest?


In the application, there is a section where you can list if you plan to bring a guest.

If your application is approved, your guests are approved as well and you can enter their names and e-mails on the official guest registry.

Why is the event just for publishers?

We’ve found that this is what makes Pubtelligence so great.

Our experts and speakers can address topics specific to one unified audience. Webmaster, SEO, and other web-related topics are often broadly addressed. Pubtelligence is specific to online content creators and brands. This makes the information more actionable and much more helpful to those that attend.

This also makes networking much more enticing and beneficial for everyone. No one has to navigate around vendors or non-publishers. It makes for a very friendly and helpful environment.

We’ve had publishers tell us that the event’s networking opportunities transformed their brand/business.
