BlogWorld says Goodbye to Vegas: The Largest Social Media Convention Relocates
>BlogWorld and New Media Expo is the ultimate Social Media experience for not only bloggers but also those who work and play within the Social Media Industry. This convention offers sessions to aid a wide variety of Social Media enthusiasts and professionals with conferences to learn how to cultivate better content, and how you can monetize your blog. It does not stop there, BlogWorld is more than just for bloggers, it is a staple for remaining knowledgeable about the latest trends in Social Media, Online Journalism, Internet Broadcasting and more.
For the past five years, BlogWorld assembled in Las Vegas in the month of November as its West Coast representation.
As 2011 begins anew, it seems as BlogWorld is doing the same, relocating from Las Vegas to Los Angeles with dates still being November 3-52011 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
BlogWorld West will host more than 4,000 attendees, 200 sponsoring companies, 100 educational sessions and 200 speakers. It is the largest Social Media gathering in the U.S. and arguably the world. BlogWorld and New Media Expo unite influential Social Media minds within the Industry. Last year, the amount of attendees in Vegas had a combined reach of 250 million people through their social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
BlogWorld and New Media Expo also has an exclusive Business Summit that has corporate leaders teaching businesses how to engage and grow your business. This convention truly caters to all Social Media genres and needs.
With this type of impact, BlogWorld attracts the most admired and experienced bloggers, podcasters, Internet radio and TV broadcasters, as well as the most influential Facebook and Twitter celebrities and social media professionals. It would make sense to move the most popular Social Media gathering to Los Angeles, where the largest population in the U.S. of digital content creators and bloggers reside. With downtown L.A. revamped, it seems to be a perfect spot although the tradition to reunite in sin city will be missed, as fast as Social Media changes, so should its largest conventions in order to stay on top of the Industries best.
Cannot wait until November? BlogWorld and New Media will have its East Coast convention from May 24-26 in New York City at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.
