BlogWorld & New Media Expo 2011 in Los Angeles

BlogWorld & New Media Expo 2011 LA Promo Video

This year's BlogWorld & New Media Expo's Los Angeles edition is taking place from November 3 to 5. I think the upbeat video above gives you one sense of the conference but it basically seems to be a massive social media conference with a big emphasis on blogging.

I found the Attendee Profile pretty interesting:

40% of attendees state new media is their primary business.
42% of attendees produce a blog.
24% of attendees produce a podcast, internet radio or TV program.
64% of attendees are men.
36% of attendees are women.
50% of attendees earn at least $50k/year from their new media activity.

Getaway Travel Blog Conference

The first Getaway Travel Blog Conference is scheduled for November 5th in Cape Town, South Africa.

"South Africa's top bloggers and online gurus as well as industry experts from digital marketing agency Quirk, will talk on all aspects of travel blogging, from writing, photography and video to design, search optimisation, marketing and making money from blogging."

The conference is being organized by Getaway, a South African travel magazine that also produces the Getaway Travel Blog. The blog apparently has "over 100 contributing bloggers."
