BlogHer Conference Site is Live, and Registration is Open, Open, Open
It gives me great pride and pleasure to announce that our new BlogHer Conferences section of the site is now open for business. Not only that, but registration is also open for both BlogHer Business this April 3/4 in New York and BlogHer '08 this July 18-20 in San Francisco.
I'd like to particularly thank BlogHer's Community Manager Denise Tanton, BlogHer's Events & Marketing Manager Kristy Sammis, and BlogHer's Marketing Programs Coordinator Joy Johnson for working their butts off to make all of the above happen.
So what is new with this conference site? Well, it's going to be a great single place to go to find out everything you could want to know about all of our events in 2008. The simple tabbed content areas will let you easily toggle between the Business, Annual and Reach Out Tour events, and the conference-specific left navigation bar will also let you answer your questions with a single click.
We're even heeding the request of many a conference-goer, and we will let people self-select to list themselves as an attendee for the Attendee pages.
Denise has opened up new '08-specific Forums, and never fear: when you post about the conference it will be included in the "All Posts" section of the conference pages, just like your posts currently work on the rest of BlogHer.com.
There will soon be a flood of content, so i recommend you familiarize yourselves with the various areas of the site now :)
Finally, we have opened registration for our first two events next year, the Business Conference and the Annual Conference. There is early bird pricing available now for both conferences, so if this is already in ink on your calendar, now's the time to sign up.
We've launched with a new registration partner, and we are hopeful that the interface and functionality is much simpler and clearer.
As always we look forward to your feedback.
