BlogWorld & New Media Expo is a trade show centered around social media, blogging, podcasting and other forms of new media. This year’s annual event is being held on October 14 – 16, 2010, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. The event begins with the Social Media Business Summit on October 14th and continues with the BlogWorld & New Media Expo and Conference October 15 – 16.
Here’s what’s in store for you at the 2010 BlogWorld event:
Education and Discovery – With expert speakers from various fields, rest assured, there’s something for everyone no matter what your current level of experience . BlogWorld’s topics will range from those suited to the advanced, experienced blogger, podcaster or broadcaster down to “startup” topics for the novice.
New Services, Products and Technology – The BlogWorld exhibit floor will be full of exhibitors. You will see Web/blog/podcast hosting, podcasting products, blog publishing platforms, blog design services, digital video and photo products, Web TV and radio solutions, Twitter applications and tools, badges/plug-ins/widgets, computer hardware and software, home and office digital products, search engines, SEO and SEM, wireless and high-speed ISPs, mobile applications, advertising networks, RSS/syndication services, social media consulting companies, new media products and services, affiliate program partners, social networking platforms and much more.
Business Social Media and Blogging – Let’s not forget about the Social Media Business Summit — an exclusive pre-show conference beginning on October 14. Sessions will be focused on content creation, monetization and distribution. From learning how to design and launch blogs, podcasts and video channels, to learning to use social networks like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, to learning to use audio and video sharing sites like iTunes and YouTube, to direct advertising and paid content – no stone will be left unturned.

I daresay that anyone who reads your publications, your blog, is trying to figure out how to make money via blogging, even if not directly. Meaning they might not view their blog as an advertising or sponsored vehicle, but that they hope it will drive new traffic, new leads, new sales to their front door. If they are blogging for other reasons, I’d love to know what they are doing with it.
Thank you for the kind words and the link Anita. Your monetization super panel is one of the sessions I am personally looking forward to.
Hi TJ, I guess it all depends on how you define “monetization” — I can see how some businesses might want a blog more for customer service purposes, for instance. But you make a great point about business blogs. At the end of the day if they don’t serve business purposes (directly or indirectly leading to new business) then it is going to be hard to justify the investment in one.
Hi Rick, looking forward to meeting you there! Meeting other business owners and entrepreneurs is one of the key reasons I go to events. I love to network and solidify relationships that started online, with offline reaffirmation.
As much as I would love to Anita, I cannot afford to. Its way to expensive for me to attend the conf. I would love to learn and grow and one day be at these conf’es. That is why I follow bloggers like you to learn.
