Are you going to meet me in Las Vegas in September? Yes Des & I are going to be there again this year.
Today is the last day to get this discount, Aussies you can still get the discount as it is still Friday in USA. Today I was chatting with Rick Calvert who organizes BWE and he told me the program for 2008 will be up soon. It will be very exciting this year, more bloggers, more streams, more new media. As the website says:
YOU HAVE TO BE THERE
If you blog, dabble in new media, are a full time digital communications junkie … or just dream of getting your feet wet in this phenomenon with a 6,000% growth rate … you have to be at BlogWorld & New Media Expo in Las Vegas, September 20 & 21, 2008. Join more than 4 million bloggers who know this industry is going to continue to grow … and want play an active role. Don’t be left behind … attend the show to secure and further your stake in the Blogosphere!
Why are we going? Well Des has put his hand up to speak and chair a panel. Maybe I will do that next year. I had so much fun last year and I was a new blogger, I met some of the legends of blogging, people whose blogs I had read and commented on.
Dave Taylor, John Chow,Jim Kuckral, Liz Strauss, Erin aka Queen of Spain, Wendy Peirsall, Andy Wibbels , and many more. Who knows if I hadn’t gone to Blog World I might not have hooked up with Glenda AKA The Left Thumb Blogger in Vancouver recently, let alone organized a Tweetahon.
I would probably not be the Beach Notes guest blogger each week at the most famous Liz Strauss’s Successful Blog.
This year I am looking forward to catching up with old friends, meeting new blogging friends, meeting new exhibitors, maybe I can win an iphone this year. I will put that into my attraction basket.
So if you are wondering whether it is worth going, I would say yes and did I mention the parties?
$ 200 is a great deal and Rick has organized some neat hotel prices too. This year we are going to stay within walking distance to the convention centre and get the monorail to other places at night.
If you are going leave a comment below, I would love to meet up. Des is organizing a LinkedIn Bloggers meet too
