One of my favorite shows of the year, Blog World, is finally here! What I love most about this show (other then the fact that it’s in La La La Las Vegas!) is that there are always quality speakers and sessions, awesome networking events and a ton actionable info and ideas discussed that can be implemented right away.
This will be my second time attending the event, and if you are in Social Media, PR, or just have a blog that you are looking to grow and at some point monetize, there is no better conference to attend then Blog World Expo (IMHO).
Clicky is in the South Pacific with Megan Fox, so I will be the only one from Clickbooth attending this year. If we work together and haven’t met yet, please stop me and say hi if you see me walking around (I promise not to go all Kanye on you. lol)! To be honest, that’s one of the biggest reasons I attend conferences. Obviously its great to hang out and network with my current friends/clients, but more importantly, I want to meet a ton of new people and come away with more friends and potential partners then I arrived there with. So please don’t be shy and definitely introduce yourself if you get the chance.
Also, if you’ve never been to a conference before, here are a few great posts to check out.

My flight gets into Vegas at 8:30 tonight, so I still have a lot to do before I leave. But if you want to connect while I’m there you can hit me up on Twitter at @EricSchechter or on Mobile AIM EricClickbooth.
See you guys in Vegas!
