E3 is the holy grail of gaming conventions. This monster show spans several levels of the Los Angeles Convention Center and has everything you could possibly imagine when it comes to gaming. Whether you are in the gaming and entertainment business or just want to get a firsthand look at the newest games and technology, this show is tough to beat! Well worth making the trip (You do have to have a business license or an invite to attend).

I've been to a number of Internet / Search conferences but my favorite is always PubCon. It offers sessions on Search but goes into greater detail on Social Media, Video, Domaining, etc... than other conferences. The best part is that PubCon is cheaper than most of their competition especially if you register early.

SF New Tech has steadily emerged as the premier San Francisco Internet meetup. There have been a lot of competitors over the years - SF Beta and Stirr come to mind - but most of the others have petered out while SF New Tech has kept growing.

Now it seems that there are several events a month, and the lineup of presenting companies keeps getting better and better.

I think Myles deserves a lot of credit for building this group out without overreaching. The format is a good one - cocktails, followed by demos, followed by more cocktails. Sometimes keeping it simple is a winner.

I won't talk so much about the content of Google I/O, as your mileage may vary depending on what your area of focus is.

I will say this though - this is the best run conference that I have ever attended. I was able to check in and get my t-shirt in about 5 minutes, despite the fact that there were 4K other attendees, most of which were arriving right when I did. The food was great and free beverages and snacks were abundant, the wifi held up, the audio and visual quality was top notch, and you leave this conference with the feeling that Google is Great and Good, and Loves Us All Very Much.

The fact that they gave everyone a $200 T-Mobile Android G-2 didn't hurt either.

Along with Pubcon, SMX is the best search marketing conference. It's hosted by Danny Sullivan, who goes as far back in search as just about anyone.
