Announcing: BlogHer '09 LobbyCon

BlogHer Original Post

BlogHer '09 In Real Life BlogHer '09, BlogHer's fifth annual conference, will be our biggest conference yet. Every year we have sold out and dealt with the dreaded waiting list. This year we sold out BlogHer '09's original capacity in mid-March, which left us with lots of community members wanting in.

We went to work to make it happen. Conference sales woman extraordinaire Miriam Anton was able to secure additional sponsorship that allowed us to let in 300 bloggers off of the waiting list, but that just wasn't enough! We started to hear about people who were going to show up and hang in the lobby, just to meet friends and attend some of the after-parties being planned.

Enter: LobbyCon
We decided to figure out how we could turn more of The Chicago Sheraton and Towers into all-BlogHer, all-the-time from July 24-25, 2009. And this is what we came up with: LobbyCon

Please join us for LobbyCon on Friday and Saturday, July 24 & 25, where you will receive:

  • Access to the Chi Bar at the Sheraton, where we will be live-streaming of all four general sessions, including the Community Keynote and Saturday morning's powerhouse trio of media mavens taking part in the Traditional Media Chops meet a New Media Calling keynote
  • Access to the Expo floor, and the 40 sponsors on that floor (and their swag)
  • Access to both official BlogHer cocktail parties
  • What are the fees to attend BlogHer '09 LobbyCon?
    BlogHer '09 LobbyCon costs $99 for the two-day experience

    What is *not* included with your BlogHer '09 LobbyCon pass

  • Access to the seven tracks of break-out programming, including the Geek Lab
  • The official conference tote bag
  • Meals during the day (breakfast, lunch, snacks)
  • We can take up to 125 folks in the Chi bar, so that is our capacity for BlogHer '09 LobbyCon. Register now!

    We hope this provides yet another option for folks who are making the trek to Chicago with or without a ticket in hand!! We look forward to seeing you there :)
