    You know what would be fun? A HubPages convention! Who's in?

      That is really interesting and worth attending. However, I doubt that HP would set up such a thing.......Oh well!

      Online or in person?

        In person, more impactful face-to-face

      I would consider it certainly! I remember seeing in the past get-to-gethers for hubbers by city or regions. There use to be at one time symposiums as How-to's presented by HubPages staff (I think at one time) at the corporate and on-site location. At least a visitation of some kind. That was the early days. I would think they diminished because of cost this way or that way and the staff needed to organize and administrate an event like that.

      However, I would consider it. I have pondered a local to me one on occasions. Again, organization and administering would be all volunteer, a format with purposeful would be needed (other than social), and then there are costs - place for the meeting, equipment needed, refreshments, and etc. Those would be met by the attendees. Minimum attendees at what price to attend countering costs is of question. Then if an invite to a staff member(s) is presented and accepted are those costs deferred?

      A comparison for research would be to investigate class reunions as an example for structuring and organization models. Of least here where I live in the San Diego area there are vacation possibilities that could be introduced and the get-to-gether is a cause as an enhancement and benefit.

      I dun'no . . . I will ponder more smile

          I need a job first LOL or a means to pay for dinner wink Or, else I would turn it into a money making objective venture instead of an altruistic adventure. Just kidding about . . .

    I think this is a great idea! It would be nice to meet the staff of HubPages and fellow authors.

    Curious...

    1) What do you think would be hot topics for breakout sessions and agenda items?

    2) Do you think people would be willing to fly to a location?

    Great idea, Jacob! But... there would need to be HubCons in Hubbers' own countries. I cannot fly from Australia to anywhere because of health issues. If there was an Australian convention, I could get there easily.

      Generally when conventions get really big, organizations will start to break them up into multiple cities. Right now, we don't know if just one would be successful, so that's probably a starting point.

    I agree it would be fun, but how would you designate the areas?  Some would have to drive or fly in, and spend money on hotel rooms, no matter where it was held.
    I, for one, could not afford to do that; I'd be able to attend only if it was within an hour or so driving distance of my home, so I could day-trip it. 
    And you can't make special location concessions like that for people, because I'm sure I'm in the minority on that count.

      Hi Ms Lizzy, yes there are probably quite a few people in this position. This is the challenge of hosting a convention--trying to identify where you can get the most number of people to attend

        Maybe a combination of on-site face-to-face and real time webinar would address those issues to accommodate more attendees.

        @  Jacob--exactly!
        @ janshares, I think that is a great idea.  It would also be easier and less costly to schedule several different webinars, to accommodate time zone issues.
