Rick Calvert is the CEO and Co-founder of New Media Expo. He has been involved in the trade show industry since 1996 serving as sales manager and director of sales for three of Tradeshow Week’s top 200 events.  Rick’s interest in new media first began in during the explosion of the political blogosphere around the 2000 election season. He was finally inspired to launch his own blog in October of 2005. After experiencing unexpected success with his political blog he began searching for the blogging tradeshow. When he realized no such event existed, he and Dave Cynkin launched BlogWorld & New Media Expo in Las Vegas in November of 2007 and attracted 1,600 attendees.
