BlogWorld Expo 2008

I’m pretty sure the joke’s been used before, but what’s blogged in Vegas definitely doesn’t stay in Vegas. And with 1,600 bloggers in Las Vegas last November for BlogWorld and New Media Expo there was a whole lotta blogging goin’ on.

I met face to face for the first time lots of friends from the blogosphere. I made new friends. And I got new information, new insights. I sat in on outstanding keynotes and expert sessions and had the pleasure of presenting a session myself, with my friend and colleague Rich Brooks.

And there were parties. Excellent parties!

I wrote about my Blogworld Expo experience in a bit more detail back in March, with pics including one of me with Mark Cuban.

BlogWorld Expo is on earlier this year, in September, and in Las Vegas again.

Key points from the website:

The 2008 BlogWorld & New Media Expo will take place September 20-21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, with the exclusive “Executive & Entrepreneur” conference beginning September 19th.

BlogWorld is the first and only industry-wide tradeshow, conference, and media event dedicated to promoting the dynamic industry of blogging and new media.

In addition to being the only industry-wide exhibition, BlogWorld features the largest blogging conference in the world including more than 50 seminars, panel discussions and keynotes from leaders in online technology and internet-savvy business.

On the basis of the inaugural event last year, I can say confidently that anyone who wants to know where blogging, podcasting, video blogging, social media generally are heading and how they can ride the wave will find BlogWorld the place to be in September.

Right now, there are just two days to go to catch the early bird rate – i.e. it closes June 20 (US time). Not just a modest discount, but up to 50% of the full cost.

Did I mention the parties?

Hope to see you there.

(Update: about hotel reservations through the BlogWorld Expo people, I’ve just been told by someone who has done some comparisons that the deals being offered are excellent.)
