The Blog World & New Media Expo is an upcoming conference, held in Las Vegas, Nevada, covering everything to do with, well, blogging and new media. This includes communities, forums, podcasting, video blogging, technology, journalism, monetization, entrepreneurship, management and more, discussing varying levels of experience.
It’s scheduled for September 20 and 21 with the extra Executive and Entrepreneur (E&E) conference being held on September 19. I will be there for all 3 days.
This will be my first time there. It looks like an awesome conference that will be attended by loads of cool people. I will be on a panel called “Avoiding Disaster: How Not to Use Social Media”, along with Lee LeFever (Principal, Common Craft), Jason Falls (Social Media Explorer, Doe-Anderson and Blogger, SocialMediaExplorer.com) and Darren Rowse (Owner, ProBlogger.net; Co-Founder, Sixfigureblogging.com; Co-Founder and VP Training, b5media and Co-Author, “ProBlogger: The Book“), who is tentative. It should be a lot of fun.
If you are interested or involved in any of these fields and can afford to come, I’d definitely recommend checking it out. Through August 22, I have a 20% off coupon code that you can use while signing up. This code is FROGVIP and it is good for the “Exhibits Only,” “Exhibits Only + Opening Party,” “Full Access” and “E&E Conference” packages. The full access pass is currently $300, so the 20% off ticket would take it down to $240. The E&E pass is $750, making it $600 with the coupon.
If you are able to attend, definitely let me know so that we can meet, if you’d like. And, of course, I invite you to come to my panel, as well!
