If you submitted a speaker proposal for BlogWorld you may be Jonesing for an answer because you want to know if you’re getting the free all access speaker pass or if you have to buy your own ticket. We understand that the early bird pricing is important and that you’re hoping for an answer before the July 15th deadline.
First, please be assured that we’re working around the clock to flesh out the schedule and approve speakers. We already have a good idea of the content for several of our tracks and just have to work out a few details. We know that many hopeful attendees want to know who is speaking and what they’ll be speaking about. We may not have the whole schedule available by the 15th, but we will have a good representation of the programming for BlogWorld ’10 before deadline.
Second, if you’re waiting to hear about the status of your speaker proposal because you want to know if you need to take advantage of the early bird pricing, fear not. We have extended the early bird pricing for all who submitted speaker proposals because we realize we’re holding you up. We’re hoping to have a decision for you within the next couple of days. However, for large tracks, like the Social Media Business Summit, we may not have the entire track flushed out by Thursday. Thus, some speakers might receive notification after the deadline. If you receive a note telling you your proposal wasn’t accepted, there will be a discount code included, allowing you to take advantage of early pricing past the deadline.
Thanks for your patience as we put together the sessions and panels for BlogWorld ’10. Please know we’re taking our time only because we want to ensure the best content possible.
