for PubConf Kansas City


  • Is this a joke?
    Yes. Well, kind of. We're really throwing this party, these speakers are really going to speak on these topics, and we're really going to have beer. But it's all light-hearted and fun.
  • I didn't attend KCDC, can I still come to PubConf?
    Absolutely! While PubConf is the official after-party for KCDC, it is a separately ticketed event and we'd love to have you there!
  • What's included with my ticket?
    We'll provide pub-fare food, some adult beverages, a great show, and amazing people. If you need something more, well, maybe this isn't the event for you.
  • When will tickets be available?
    We release the first round of tickets about a month before the event. The second batch of tickets is held until the week of KCDC.


Doors Open - 6:00pm
Show Time - 7:00pm
