Every year we attend and exhibit at BlogWorld New Media Expo. Not only is a great event for education and networking, but also to connect with companies and businesses that are active in the space. We’ve partnered with this blogging event and are offering you–our Community–the opportunity to join us in Las Vegas. Wanna hear about your chance to go to BlogWorld Expo this coming October? So here’s the deal: This year the BlogWorld event moves to the amazing Mandalay Bay Las Vegas hotel, located directly on the Las Vegas Strip, and we have 10 Full Access* passes to give away! What does a Full Access Pass get you, you ask?

  • Social Media Business Summit sessions on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday
  • Full access to all show events and all conference sessions on all three (3) event days
  • Special Thursday-only Social Media Business Summit Keynotes
  • Thursday Partner Programs
  • The Exclusive Thursday Networking Luncheon
  • FULL ACCESS BREAK AREA (which includes lunch & snacks on all three days)

Dates of the event are October 14th through the 16th. Sooooo…how do you get yours? Simply create a blog post telling us why you should be the recipient of one of these passes, leave the link to the post in the comments section here, and we’ll select the winners. Keep in mind the more creative you are the more likely you’ll catch our eye (so feel free to imitate the IZEA Team, famous bloggers or Tweeters, etc.). Videos, fun photos, and cookies–well, any sort of baked goods, actually–are encouraged; nudity, however, is not! The deadline for submission is next Thursday (9/9), 6pm EDT. Be forewarned, though, when hanging out with the IZEA Crew there’s a strong possibility you might end-up in a photo like this:

NOTE: These are for passes only. Open to all Publishers but be aware each winner is responsible for their own travel to Las Vegas as well as lodging/hotel accommodations.

UPDATE, 9/9: We are extending this contest. Something bigger & better is coming, and we’ll provide details later next week. In the meantime, keep the submissions coming – you won’t want to miss out!

UPDATE, 9/16: We told you we were going to add something really sweet, and boy are we delivering! In addition to a Full Access Pass to BlogWorld, we’re also offering one (1) lucky winner FREE roundtrip airfare courtesy of Southwest Airlines* and hotel accommodations for the evenings of October 14-16. So get ready to party like a rockstar with the IZEA Crew!

Deadline to submit is next Wednesday, September 22nd at 6pm EDT. Winners will be selected on Friday, 9/24. If you’ve already submitted a post you’re welcome to edit it and “snaz-it-up” if you feel the need.
