Bloggers to Gather at BlogWorld Expo, Las Vegas, November

In November this year I’ll not only be the first time in fabled Las Vegas, Nevada, but I’ll be meeting more bloggers than have possibly ever gathered previously in one place, at the BlogWorld & New Media Expo, November 8-9.

I know that expo/conference organiser Rick Calvert is keen to attract a wide range of bloggers, as indicated on the event home page:

Any Blogger, Vlogger, Podcaster, Internet radio broadcaster, or

producer of any other form of new media content. If you blog about

business, technology, politics, sports, lifestyle & culture,

general news items, or celebrity gossip, If you are a Milblogger, or

Godblogger, or advocate a social position you need to be at BlogWorld

& New Media Expo.

If there aren’t some good discussions – and good parties! – out of all of that, then we’ll only have ourselves to blame

The trade show will be a terrific opportunity for companies with products and services of interest to bloggers, podcasters, vloggers and other attendees:

Companies will include publishing platforms, design companies,

web/blog/podcast hosting companies, aggregators, add-on services,

plug-ins, widgets, computer hardware & software, wireless services,

podcasting products, wireless & high speed ISPs, VOIP companies,

on-line advertising networks, news readers, RSS/syndication services,

search engines, consulting companies, affiliate program partners, new

media products and services … and many more.

The Expo conference program covers a wide spectrum of topics, from Business Blogging 101 to “What Web 10.0 Might Look Like: The Far Future”.

As the program shows, there is a related Executive and Entrepreneur conference on November 7, at which I’m scheduled to speak.  This is the event described on the expo website as the “CEO Conference“:

The CEO Conference is an exclusive pre-show conference beginning on

Wednesday, November 7.  Sessions will be focused on corporate blogging

and use of new media in business environments.  Offerings will

enlighten experienced corporate bloggers as well as individuals who

aren’t really sure what a blog can do for their company. 

Still working on a few details with my co-presenter and will post more about that as soon as possible.

    That’s great, Jared. I’ve done the expression of interest and hope others will too. I voted for Brisbane because it’s closer to me, but I see those Melburnians are leading the pack just now.

    I’m looking forward to meeting you and so many other bloggers I only know virtually at this point. It will also be a first for me to be in a sizable offline gathering of bloggers – I haven’t been to the USA since I started blogging and a couple of attempts to help get a bloggercon going in Australia have gone over like a lead balloon (another James – Farmer – did put on a blogger conference in Sydney two years ago but I didn’t pick up on it till after the event).
