Blog World Expo Attendee List

I am very excited to announce I will be attending Blog World Expo this year which takes place on October 14-16 in Las Vegas, Nevada and what better way to network and connect early by getting to know each other. To make this possible, I am compiling a list of who is attending and which state they are from. This will give you a chance to get to know one another and take the opportunity to follow each other on twitter. If you don’t know someone then get to know them. You never know it could be the beginning of a great new relationship.

37 thoughts on “Blog World Expo Attendee List

  1. What a great idea, Jason. Have been looking for a way to find locals who registered for BlogWorld 2010!
    My registration confirmation also had a link to find out who in my social networks is attending so I can “pre-connect” with them, too.

    This will be my first time, but I imagine it’s a pretty large crowd to try to find specific people after you get there.

    Thanks for taking the time to do this.

  2. To Syed, Yes I am planning on arriving that Thursday. To Judy, This is my first ever Conference period. I admit that it will be hard to find people once there so this is why I am gathering a list to better help you connect before.

  3. Looking forward to seeing you there! Great list. One of the best ways to meet up with someone? Find a panel or session you both have in common and agree to meet there (usually at the end – sometimes we all end up getting there just a tad late due to awesome hallway interactions!)

    Looking forward to your post-BlogWorld post! :)

  4. This is awesome! I’m really looking forward to Blog World Expo, this will be my first time in Las Vegas – and I’m super pumped to be speaking! :)

    And Twitter is an awesome way to keep in touch / find out where people are hanging out. :)

  5. Thanks for the mention…can’t wait to attend for the first time and speak on the “Harnessing the Power of Numbers” panel with Bridgette (from Louisiana.) :)

  6. Very cool list!

    Glad you’re joining us. :)

    Shoot me an email when you get a sec. I have an idea.

  7. Great list Jason!

    This was a really cool initiative. Great way to get sneak peak of attendees and their blog.

    I live in Mississippi and I will be there. Look forward to meet a lot of great new friends at Blog Expo 2010. This is my first time at Blog Expo.

    I will send you a tweet with my info.

    Cheers.. Are

  8. Thanks for adding me to the list Jason! I love it. This is such a useful resource and I love the way me and Darren are up there together! Go Australia:)

    I hope we’ll find each other in Vegas. I’ll look out for your Tweets and hope to recognise you from your profile pic:) So excited!

  10. Hello,I am going to be there for the entire conference, tickled pink. From North Carolina. Would you be so kind as to add me? :)!

  11. Hope you can add me to the California list. 1st timer at #bwe10.

    Marketing Shindig –

    Thanks for doing this!

  13. Jason! First, it was great meeting you at the Omaha Steaks party. The food wasn’t bad either!! If it’s not too late, can you add me to this list? I think it’s just a great resource. And, if you have a chance to visit ‘the ParmFarm’, would love to have you stop by!! Please let me know if I there is ever any thing I can do to return the favor!

  15. Jason,

    Just started following U on Twitter today. What a WONDERFUL IDEA to list attendees for Blog World Expo – Where do I go to sign up since I’ll be attending from California for BWE 2011 in L.A.? This year will be my first year there. Also, let me know how I can help U promote this concept.
