  • This sounds like a wonderful opportunity. How does a Social Networking conference work in Vegas, where everything that happens at it, stays in Vegas?

  • In short,

    Social Media Conference + Me – $ + Knowledge from conference + Networking opportunity = Me, grateful.

    I just left my job, and would love the opportunity to spend an extra day learning and networking with some of the best and brightest in the industry.

  • Because one of our core values is – “We are not afraid of the giants” – having any opportunity to arm our small, privately owned OTA with ammo that can be used in our clashes with the Titans helps us to get the edge that we need to turn the volume up on our message and drown out the noise of lesser deals, backed solely by marketing muscle and sheer size.

  • Good point, Frank, and I agree with you. It’s definitely most effective when your blog exists to spread an idea, brand yourself, or when you’re offering something totally unique.
