For the last decade I’ve been somewhat of a conference junkie.
After graduating college in 2008, I was eager to grow my professional network and started attending almost any industry conference I could get to.
This was a lot of fun as I was able to travel many different places, meet lifetime friends, and secure connections that have helped with my success (I also started speaking at many).
This coming Monday, cPanel is going to be holding their annual conference in their hometown of Houston, Texas.
While I greatly enjoyed Fort Lauderdale, Florida last year (made a mini vacation out of it) I am looking forward to getting down to Houston. I know a lot of people in the city and am excited to see them and meet some new faces as well.
When Brent was there with HostGator, I remember dubbing Houston the “web hosting capital” of the United States, therefore I know I’m going to run into many familiar Resellers.
Unfortunately my meeting schedule is booked solid, but if you see me wondering around the conference halls, feel free to say hi!
I’m also going to be on a panel at the Security Roundtable on Wednesday afternoon:
If you’re in the Houston area (or within traveling distance) this is a conference I recommend.
With HostingCon gone, there isn’t many opportunities in the United States, so I try to take the good ones!
I’ve filmed a video on our Official YouTube channel where I share more of my thoughts:
cPanel Conference 2018
October 1st – 3rd, 2018
The Westin Galleria
5060 W Alabama St, Houston, TX 77056, USA
If you’re a Reseller Web Host, this is your opportunity to meet some of the faces behind the software that you use to power your business. They have many educational sessions where also be able to ask questions, which I’m brining my list!
See you all there!
