12 Talks I’m Excited to See at New Media Expo 2014

Home / Events / 12 Talks I’m Excited to See at New Media Expo 2014
I first attended New Media Expo Vegas when it was called BlogWorld back in 2009 and 2010.

It was a nice setup at the Mandalay Bay and there were some pretty inspiring and influential speakers (Brian Solis, Darren Rowse, Scott Stratten, Brian Clark and Sonia Simone to name a few, and many more).

This year, I’m excited to spend time in Vegas again, immersing myself with the industry’s best.

 

The venue has changed. It’s at the Rio for 2014 — a short cab ride from the Aria, where I’m staying.

I was last at the Rio about 6 months ago for the World Series of Poker events.

I can’t imagine how the convention center looks without the hundreds of poker tables and thousands of chairs, but I know the organizers at #NMX know what they’re doing.

I’m particularly looking forward to:

Pat Flynn

Pat seems to be a very busy man these days, with the SmartPassiveIncome.com blog, the podcast, his book, and not to mention spending good quality time with his family.
