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, London, Los Angeles, and New York. All have reached capacity.
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?
Our exit surveys from previous events show a 100% “yes” rating on the question “Did you receive valuable information at the event today?”
Pubtelligence was very thoughtfully crafted by teams at Google and Ezoic. 99.8% 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. We have worked to incorporate 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.

Why is the event just for publishers?
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 publishing 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, B2B businesses, or other 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.
