Are you going to BlogWorld? It is taking place in Las Vegas, October 15-17.
Blogworld is the industry’s largest conference geared specifically to blogging. If you are interested in blogging or making money as a blogger (and you probably are if you’re reading this blog), then you really should go.
There is really no comparison between reading blogs and actually immersing yourself in it IN PERSON for a few days.
Better yet, I’d like to meet you. If you’re going to be at BlogWorld, I’d like to arrange an informal meetup somewhere where we can chat in person and hang out. I especially want to extend this invite to any of my Blog Masters Club students who are attending BlogWorld.
So, about those logistics…
I know it takes time and money to travel. You have to get yourself to Las Vegas, for one. There is also a cost to attend BlogWorld. The weekend pass is going to set you back $395. If you run a quick Google search for coupon codes, you should be able to find some which will save you 10%-20% on attendance.
In my opinion, the cost of the event is worth it. You’ve got full days of instructional sessions plus exhibits. Plus, you’re going to have fantastic networking opportunities with leading bloggers out there. It is almost a “who’s who” of blogging at this conference.
As for the hotel, that’s up to you. BlogWorld has special room rates set up at the Las Vegas Hilton and two others. Personally, I’m going to be staying at the Hilton. It is an easy overhead train ride to the convention center. Even though the Hilton is right next door to the convention center, it is a lot further away than it looks. Trust me. But, I’m staying at the Hilton for only $69/night. The Courtyard is only $79/night and includes free Internet (you have to pay a daily charge for internet at the Hilton).
I’m flying in on Wednesday and I’ll be leaving on Sunday. So, if you’re coming, let me know and we can arrange a meetup! Perhaps at one of the bars in the Hilton.
I look forward to meeting you in person in Las Vegas.
