I am happy to announce that our speaker submission form for New Media Expo Las Vegas 2013 is now live; with some great new features. Along with our name change from BlogWorld & New Media Expo to New Media Expo (NMX), there are some new features to the speaker submission form, as well as the entire conference schedule, that you should know about.
New Media Expo (NMX) focuses on the Blogging, Podcasting, and WebTV industries. Within each of these industries we will have tracks discussing content, community, and commerce as it relates to helping educate content creators achieve their goals. We will also discuss tools and, of course, represent our various niche communities.
As such, there are now questions that identify what industry you are a part of, the track you want to speak in (content, community, commerce), and the specific topic within each track (for example, mobile, monetization, etc.). You will also be asked to identify an education level for your presentation, as we are seeking a percentage of beginning, intermediate, and advanced sessions.
Part of the excitement of these new features, is that we will now be able to show attendees sessions based on their own unique goals. For example, here are some options an attendee would see to help them come up with their own personal conference schedule:
- I am a blogger who wants to build a business, what sessions should I take?
- I am a podcaster who wants to grow my community, what sessions should I take?
- I am a blogger who wants to create better content, what sessions should I take?
- I want to learn how to create better content in the WebTV industry, what sessions should I take?
- I am new to blogging, podcasting, and WebTV, what are the beginner sessions I can take?
These are just a few samples of the options attendees will see when trying to locate sessions to attend. This will help attendees enjoy an educational experience that is organized, goal-based, and flexible.
Here are a few questions you might have. If there’s anything else you need to know to aid in the submission process, please feel free to leave your questions in the comment box below.
Where are the tracks that I’m used to seeing?
The tracks are now called Content, Community, and Commerce. The ones you used to see such as Monetization, Content Creation, Mobile, Traffic & Distribution, etc. are now topics within these three main tracks.
What about the niches? Are they still represented?
Absolutely. We will have rooms dedicated to our special niche communities such as parenting, milblogging, education, etc.
Here is a link to the new submission form, which will be live until July 31st, 2012. We look forward to receiving your submissions and can’t wait to see you at the show in Las Vegas on January 6th – 8th, 2013 at the RIO Hotel & Convention Center.
