I’m Giving Away 2 Free All-Access Passes to the New Media Expo (formerly Blogworld)

*UPDATE* We Have Winners!

Congratulations to Jason Norris and Krista Stryker, who were the winners of the 2 free all-access passes. Hope to meet you both in Vegas in January!

Let’s not bury the lede here…I’m giving away 2 free all-access passes (valued at $400 apiece) to the New Media Expo (formerly Blogworld) in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 6-8, 2013. "

To find out how you could win 1 of these 2 passes, read on…

Here’s the backstory: I am going to be a speaker at the New Media Expo and BusinessNext conference (they are put on jointly together) in Las Vegas in January. I’m moderating a panel on social media legal issues which will be presented to the BusinessNext track.

(That’s right – that’s my face on the graphic to the right. Pretty cheesy, I know.)

Because I’m speaking, the folks who run the New Media Expo gave me two free all-inclusive passes (to the New Media Expo only) to give away to readers of my blog.  Which was pretty darn swell of them.

You may be wondering, what is the New Media Expo anyway? The New Media Expo is an annual conference and tradeshow dedicated to new media companies.

The conference was formerly known as “Blogworld,” and it’s aimed at bloggers, podcasters, and web video producers.

The New Media Expo actually encompasses two conferences in one. The second half of it is called BusinessNext and it’s aimed more at marketing and IT executives who work for larger companies.

BusinessNext is aimed at educating conference attendees on how to harness new marketing strategies, cutting-edge social media and mobile technologies, compelling content marketing and engaged communities.

In my panel, I am going to be asking questions of three distinguished attorneys, Brian Wassom, Gordon Firemark and Kyle Durand.
