BlogWorld Networking Party And Mixer

BlogWorld & New Media Expo opened last night with a networking party and mixer at 404NYC Restaurant. At first I thought the 404 was a play on the 404 page not found but it turned out to be the address of the place: 404 10th Ave.

The opening night mixer was co-hosted by New York Entrepreneurs Business Network and featured a book signing by Gary Vaynerchuk, Miss USA contestants, finger food, wine tasting and a bunch of companies trying to hock their wares. The only thing the party was missing was an open bar.

The party started off kinda slow but picked up as the evening went on. As networking events go, this one was pretty good. There was no music playing. Networking was the main thing. I got a chance to connect with a lot of old friends and meet up with a bunch of new ones.

  3. John, lol, 404 restaurant, always thinking in terms of blogging. Let us know what free stuff that you get. Free is good, food is good, Miss U.S.A. contestants are good.

    1. PPC Ian says:

      I like that name, 404. That said, 404 errors are never good. Maybe 200 or even 301 would be better! 🙂

      1. Yes I am also waiting for the video to see John’s robbery on free stuff ….

  4. Lori Meyer says:

    I”m only 45 minutes from the city….sorry I missed that, would’ve been awesome fun!

    1. I wish too … that was fun with great scope to explore your networking more and more…

    2. THese events seem to be just giant parties.

      1. Make Money says:

        They essentially are. Like Golf, a lot of big deals are made over “fun” events.

  6. Ifham khan says:

    1. What about event my friend … lollzz

  7. fas says:

    Where ever you go, food follows :p

      People forget about tips. meets but if you get served great food than this will point of talk in many events to come.

      1. Make Money says:

        I would end up drinking too much and embarrassing myself. That is usually what happens lol

        1. Interesting and more interesting that you shared with us …

    2. It seems like all these affiliate and blogger meetings are nothing but fun, and making connections.

  11. Kevin Kimes says:

    Wish I could be there. Trade shows and expos are great fun, no matter what they’re about. More so, of course, when it’s something you care about.

  12. Rich Gorman says:

    Sup John! Exhibit hall had a lot of interesting vendors. Here till Friday – met up with Ian last night. Let’s meet up?

  13. I would love to attend a future show – Gary knows what he is talking about (a pioneer).

  14. Looks like a great time John!

  15. George Tee says:

    Hi john. I also thought that 404 was the page not found and also the networking party was a typical night party. Great book signing with Gary Vaynerchuk and all the Miss USA contestants.

    1. We all bloggers will think this whenever 404 or 301 will come into picture

  16. Make Money says:

    Wish I lived closer so that I could attend these things. Definitely looks like fun.

  17. Those who all attend might enjoyed this meet up

    1. Yes photos are revealing everything …

      1. Photos is speaking a lot rather then words

  18. Looks glorious event.
    The organizer has put his best efforts to organize, such a great event. I really enjoyed it. This is my great pleasure to be a part …

  19. Its great way to bring awareness
