Blog World Expo Photo Roundup 1

Lee Odden on Sep 21st, 2008     Blogging, Marketing PR Conferences, Online Marketing, Other Events

Blog World Expo in Las Vegas this weekend is by far the most social, friendly and generally “buzzing” conference I’ve been to in a while. Bloggers are opinionated, natural networkers. Many bloggers might not be as open in other situations, but here amongst several thousand other like-minded individuals, people open up. Plus, it’s Vegas baby.

Here are a few of my favorite photos so far from Blog World Expo:

A Web 2.0 Conference Day – Wrap Up

Lee Odden on Apr 27th, 2008     Marketing PR Conferences, Online Marketing, Web 2.0 Expo

There are a few additional photos from Web 2.0 Expo that I wanted to share and so I took some creative license with the timing of some of the events to tell the story of a typical conference day.

The first day of a conference for me typically starts out with registration:

Web 2.0 Expo Registration

A stop by the speaker/press/blogger room then rolls into keynote presentations from industry leaders and news makers like these:

Jonathan Schwartz Tim O'Reilly Web 2.0 Expo
Jonathan Schwartz CEO of Sun and Tim O’Reilly

Matt Cutts Keynote Web 2.0 Expo
Matt Cutts from Google

Matt Mullenweg @ Web 2.0 Expo
and Matt Mullenweg co-founder of WordPress

Some keynotes are worth blogging and many others are not. The challenge is to pick the right mix of blogging and photos that best represent the conference and reader interests.

Web 2.0 Expo – Photo Picks

Web 2.0 Expo

After finding out my new camera’s SDHC card wasn’t recognized by my Sony Vaio laptop, I was stuck taking lots of photos but not posting to Flickr as I normally would. After checking several stores I finally found a card reader and below are a few photos from the Web 2.0 Conference here in San Francisco this week.

Search Insider Summit Day 1 Photos

Lee Odden on Dec 14th, 2007     Interactive Marketing, Online Marketing, Search Insider Summit

Intermission Hall

As has become the practice for me while blogging conferences, I take a lot of photos. Not as many as Tamar Weinberg, Barry Schwartz or even David Berkowitz, but quite a few. Out of those photos there are daily favorites that give a visual of what the conference day was like.

Sun Rising Over Mountains

Day one of Search Insider Summit here in Park City Utah was fast paced and information rich. The Compete.com opening VIP breakfast warmed things up while snow started to fall out side.

Gord Hotchkiss

Sessions covered included Gord Hotchkiss’ opening remarks and keynote debate with Mike Margolin.

Managing Search in an Uncertain Economy

Those lively presentations were followed by Managing Search in an Uncertain Economy and a breakout, Leveraging Local Search on a National Basis.
