Were you one of the fortunate attendees of the 2010 BlogWorld & New Media Expo in Las Vegas this October?
If so, then you are probably just as excited to have come away from the conference with a renewed sense of inspiration to make your mark on the world — via the internet.
If you were not in attendance this year, we would *highly recommend* considering attending in 2011.
In today’s posting, we share with our readers a quick recap of the expo … from the perspective of our 10′ x 20′ booth (#126) in the South Pacific Hall of the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
Setup took place on Thursday, Oct. 14th and our booth was extremely easy to assemble. It did not, thankfully, require forklifts, 5 gallon pails or tractor trailers as part of the assembly (or breakdown) process … we even had a cute little chihuahua hanging out while we were working (see “Pixie” below).
After setup was complete, we closed up shop for the evening and bid our teammates farewell for a good night’s sleep in preparation of our return the next morning.
When the morning sun broke through the eastern facing diagonal window of our Luxor hotel room, we arose with a sense of excitement normally reserved for the likes of children on Christmas morning.
Once the doors opened, thousands of attendees made their way through the (5) main aisles of exhibitors which included such greats from the Google camp as YouTube & Blogger, Windows-based smart phone giant, Blackberry, Amazon’s Audiobook company, Audible.com, stock image favorite, iStockphoto, our “sister” company, WomensRadio and many more.
The sponsors and media partners which we noticed having a large (and interactive) presence on the floor included Ford, Southwest Airlines, Jenn-Air and Palms Casino Resort (which featured a pair of Playboy Bunnies, as seen holding our mascot aka “Pixie” below):
Saturday was definitely the busier of the two days, and by the time the day was over we had shaken hands and exchanged business cards with hundreds of industry leaders, including the likes of StubmleUpon, Affiliate.com, Cozi, MultiVu, Gunggo and InboxDollars … not to mention having animated conversations with dozens of other attendees.
Sunday came and went literally in a flash. For those wondering about the t-shirts our team was wearing … they will be available for sale, eventually. Here’s an “action” shot of your friendly AudioAcrobat sales/support technician, Brian Ball, and the “Queen of Content” at WomensRadio, Kat Barrett, sharing information about the services provided by Women’s Online Media & Education Network (WomensRadio, WomensCalendar, AudioAcrobat):
In short, the expo was fabulous — and we’re looking forward to attending again in 2011!
