Join Me At BlogWorld :: Early Bird Registration Ends Soon

by derek on June 19, 2008 · 20 comments

Who wants to join me for a trip to Las Vegas for the BlogWorld & New Media Expo and save money in the process?
The early bird registration for BlogWorld Expo ends on Friday, June 20th – which means there is only one day left to take advantage of the cheapest pricing. If you miss the early bird pricing, you can still receive a discounted rate up until August 22nd but why pay more if you can avoid it.
Last year I had really thought about attending but the timing didn’t work out – plus I was a conference virgin at the time and a little nervous – but the reviews that I read were all amazing.
There were good times had by bloggers that I have been following for quite some time (MsDanielle and Gary Lee), someone that I had just recently started working with (Wendy Piersall), and A-listers that I have chatted with but don’t know well (Shoemoney, Zac Johnson, and John Chow).
After attending SOBCon earlier this year, I learned a great deal about the business of blogging and how you can leverage your blog to the benefit of your business. BlogWorld will compliment that with additional knowledge on how to continue building my online revenue streams.
Not wanting to miss out on the fun that was had at the BlogWorld Expo last year – and the networking opportunities – I jumped in and registered before the early bird pricing closes.
There is no doubt that this year will have more great sessions, interesting keynotes (I really want to hear Mark Cuban speak in person), and plenty of fun to be had well into the night.
While registering, I happened to notice that Southwest Airlines is the Official Airline of BlogWorld & New Media Expo. While I am not counting on the Southwest snack box being back, maybe Southwest Airlines would like to sponsor my flight to the conference and I can blog about the experience.
What do you say Southwest? πŸ˜‰
Since the conference is still months away (September 20-21) there is still time to coordinate the travel and hotel plans, although I do want to make sure that I stay close to the convention center. In chatting with Gary Lee, he commented that he stayed at Mandalay Bay last year and that was a big mistake as it was too far from all of the action. Needless to say, I am very excited right now and cannot wait for September.
Have you been to a blogging conference?
If not, why not take advantage of the discounted pricing and sign up for BlogWorldExpo 2008 now before the prices go up.
For anyone that does decide to register for the BlogWorld & New Media Expo, please drop me a line to let me know you are attending as I would love to meet up with you once we are in Las Vegas.
As an added bonus, once you register for the conference you can join their affiliate program (as I have done) and possibly earn enough to cover the cost of your registration.

Ah. So we’re off to Vegas again? How come all the blogger meetfests are set in Vegas? And I hope Southwest sponsors your trip. That would be the icing on the cake. A free flight to Vegas, chance to meet up with other bloggers, learn something new and have a lot of fun besides. Some people have all the luck. πŸ™‚

Not all of them are in Vegas, there is one I might attend just a week or so before this that is taking place in Orlando. πŸ™‚

Sounds like fun Derek but I won’t be able to make it this year. I hear, no, read that it’s a lot of fun and will hopefully be able to make it next year. It would nice to hear Cuban speak – looking forward to reading about your trip.

As things stand just now, it is unlikely that I shall be able to get away. You enjoy yourself though.

yea i think the best tip is to stay at the conference hotel if you can. trying to organize 5 groups of people that don’t have cars and are at different hotels is really hard. i’m thinking of going… i can’t believe it’s time to get ready for it again!

Hopefully you can make it again this year, would love to have the opportunity to meet my blogging buddy in person.
