Conferences are a perfect venue for networking with colleagues, eating finger foods, and testing out potential superhero monikers on adhesive name badges. Make friends or fight crime with today’s Groupon to the 2011 BlogWorld & New Media Expo at the Jacob Javits Convention Center from May 24–26. Choose from the following options:
- For $187, you get a one-day expo-and-conference pass (a $375 value).
- For $275, you get a two-day expo-and-conference pass plus party access (a $550 value).

The 2011 BlogWorld & New Media Expo uploads the latest in social-media developments to cranial hard drives during a symposium of brand leaders and dynamic guest speakers. Day-pass access grants attendees their choice of one day to mingle with fellow bloggers and a powerhouse of social-media giants, including Mashable and Google, in between a full schedule of conference events. A wander through the convention center highlights innovations from impressive exhibitors, such as WordPress and Posterous. Expert web-surfing speakers splash listeners with waves of digital-media wisdom about creating engaging social-media content.
In addition to a second day of expo entry, a two-day pass endows visitors with access to a networking reception on Thursday and parties on Tuesday and Wednesday. For an all-encompassing information marathon, full-access passes compound the benefits of two-day passes with an extra day of expo time, full access to a break and snack area, and exclusive admission to the 2011 Social Media Business Summit, which features engaging speeches about building brand evangelists through an online presence. As an added bonus to attendees, BlogWorld’s co-location with the Book Expo of America gives pass holders access to the Book Expo’s show floor, facilitating a crossroads between old and new media more effective than trying to stuff The Grapes of Wrath into a CD drive.
