Blog World Expo Show Floor

On the last day of Blog World Expo, I took a tour of the show floor to do some 30 second video interviews with some of the exhibitors. There were nearly 100 companies showing their stuff on the floor. Showing them all would be impossible giving the time limits placed by Viddler and YouTube.

While most vendors stuck to the 30 second elevator pitch, a few went over the time limit. Those companies that went over too much didn’t make it into video. Let that be a lesson for them. The following companies did make it.

In addition to the elevator pitches, I also included a few clips from the action on the show floor itself. Blog World Expo was a huge success this year, with more than double last year’s attendances. If this trends continues, I can see Blog World Expo becoming a major event.

    1. I really liked apture too. I had to photograph a wedding in Kansas City and I loaned out my personal jet so I couldn’t make it to the show. Is there anyone on the comments here who went? what did you glean. In fact, John should put a post asking people to comment on their experience from the show. Or even what the first timers thought about it.

  3. Mint video! Must feel proud that people ask you to be in your video!

    Hey John,

    Thank you for including SodaHead in your clip! I just wanted to clarify for your readers that while is the social network part of SodaHead allowing people to ask questions, get answers and interact, bloggers can gain access to the polling tools we offer at which isn’t accessible yet from any part of the main domain. It is a special page we put together for all you great bloggers!

    Thanks again!

    hahah.. no one diserves that. That was an nice expo, free icecream and stuff. Was the beer free too?

  21. Great video! Lost of good info about different companies I didn’t know about. I’m like you, what’s up with the PS2? Are they too cheap to get the latest version?!?

  22. Mike Mueller says:

    Great stuff.
    Although some of these don’t fit my industry, my top pics were close to yours as well Jing Rocks, Zemanta and Apture

  23. DamnSmiley says:

    whos in for it? NOBODY lol

  24. You caught some great companies on camera. I checked out Comission Videos. I’ve heard of SodaHead, but I had no idea about their blogger feature.

    Great video, a lot of helpful websites, thanx

  26. borneoman says:

    Wow it really great john and also you new theme site is nice…

  27. thanks for the tour….hope the companies give you a kick back of some cash. Great job on giving “value first” to others before asking. Chow has a lot of clout and still gives opportunity to people to show their work. To bad to the suckers who decided to take more time that was given. If you put them on a black list of “opportunists” they may still get some “clicks” their way.

    I’m in the process of looking through all those companies.

  28. Sweet! Next best thing to being there…I guess!

  29. Andraz Tori says:

    Hi John,

    thanks for giving a short spotlight on Zemanta.

    Are you going to try it out?

    Andraz Tori, CTO at Zemanta

  30. charles says:

    Are they really reliable?

  31. ismabera says:

    Great video. I am very proud as you put spot of Zemanta. I am user of Zemanta for few months and I can tell you, it helps me a lot.

  32. PS2 – hahaha, but definitely a great idea to squeeze one last post from BlogExpo. Yeah!
