Blogworld Expo

You know blogging has come of age when it has its own expo! New media and blogging has indeed gained some credibility!

While reading Copyblogger, I came across the Blogworld Expo that will be held in Las Vegas from Sep 20-21. The website tells us that:

The 2008 BlogWorld & New Media Expo will take place September 20-21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, with the exclusive “Executive & Entrepreneur” conference beginning September 19th. The first and only industry-wide tradeshow, conference, and media event dedicated to promoting the dynamic industry of blogging and new media. In addition to the only industry-wide exhibition, BlogWorld features the largest blogging conference in the world including more than 50 seminars, panel discussions and keynotes from iconic personalities on the leading-edge of online technology and internet-savvy business. If you are currently blogging, vlogging, podcasting, producing other forms of new media content, entering the new media industry, or just want to know what the blogosphere is all about, then you need to be at the most comprehensive blogging convention–BlogWorld & New Media Expo. Located in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center at: 3150 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, NV 89109

The conference schedule shows a pretty interesting line up of talks and workshops from how to make money from blogs, sports blogging, blogs and politics and  blogging and lawsuits!!

I think this is what the new media community and industry needs. I say ‘industry’ as blogging has come a long way from just being a personal diary record. It’s now seen as an important marketing arm of any agency. Even political parties can’t do without it.

And such conferences and seminars will help to add to the knowledge pool and growing awareness of the uses and abuses of new media, and that can’t be a bad thing.
