At the event this year in Las Vegas we transferred over from Blog Talk Radio to WS Radio for our regularly scheduled radio show Blog World Expo Radio. This was not because we wanted to leave Blog Talk Radio, we love the folks at Blog Talk Radio and they have been a participant at our event as an exhibitor and have helped us make our event successful. We moved the show to get a different look, feel and sound to Blog World Expo Radio.
We have quite a few shows in the archive now and I wanted to touch on those and talk about what we will be doing in the future with the show. Most recently we had on our show Wade Kwon who posted recently about his experience with BlogWorld & New Media Expo as a speaker. We reached out to Wade and wanted to get him on our show so we could discuss his complaints and acknowledge those as well as talk about how we are going to make it a better experience.
We also introduced Patti Hosking, our new Director of Business Development. Patti is not necessarily new but is someone that has been with the crew now since the beginning but has recently taken over the duties full time as the person in charge of exhibitors, and sponsors and other issues related to business development of the show. You can reach Patti by email at Patti at blogworldexpo dot com.
Our last show we had some real rock stars in the world of social media, Maggie Fox, CEO and founder of SocialMediaGroup.com and Jason Falls, the founder of Social Media Explorer. Jason was also our track leader for the Social Media Business Summit and was instrumental in how we made 2009 in the social media track awesome. He was a large part of why that was so beneficial to attendees. Maggie and Jason talk about some of the issues in the industry of events, and also talk about what we are seeing in the world of social media, and finally finish up with some thoughts into what we will see in 2010. I think you should all get over and read their blogs and definitely get a chance to listen to the show once the archive is posted.
As we approach 2010 and our new show in October, we will be interviewing speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and many others. We also plan to bring you live coverage from events like CES and SXSW and perhaps another show that is in your area. If you want to be a guest on our show feel free to leave a comment and what you want to talk about. We are going to have some cool guests in the future and you could be one of those. Coming up in January we will have Richard Jalichandra, CEO of Technorati and we look forward to what Richard will tell us about the future of blogging and about his company Technorati. Join me next week as we take a look back at 2009, what we did here at BlogWorld & New Media Expo and what we plan to do for 2010.
