Some of these speakers will be at Blog World & New Media Expo coming up in Las Vegas, and this is a great way to see them in a sneak peek. The event is described as:
Join us for the biggest Twiistup ever. Twiistup has expanded with a two-day stage program that brings together innovators in technology and media. The classic open-bar evening mixer will continue, but attendees are encouraged to attend the full conference to experience this unique program.
Get registered right away as passes for the vent can only be purchased through tomorrow. I think you may get a chance to see some of our own at the event and talk to them about what we have planned in Vegas in October. Some of the other attendees you may have a chance to meet. Here is the Twiistup Twitter page to check out the latest.
