Podcast & Portable Media Expo 2006 On Pace To Set Record Attendance
Second annual show for the emerging podcasting medium is already
surpassing expectations, boasting more than 30 percent growth over
its inaugural year.
Mission Viejo, CA (PRWEB) August 25, 2006 -- The second annual
Podcast & Portable Media Expo is well on its way to becoming the
largest of its kind.
The conference, which was named Expo Magazine's Best New Show winner
2006, will take place September 29-30 at the Ontario Convention
Center in Ontario, California. It will feature exhibits and
conference sessions aimed at both corporate and individual
podcasters. The success of the show is a testament to increased
public and corporate interest in the emerging podcasting phenomenon.
"Last year, many people were still asking what podcasting was," said
Tim Bourquin, founder and CEO of TNC New Media, producers of Podcast
& Portable Media Expo. "This
year, everyone wants to know how they can get involved."
No longer seen as merely a hobbyist pastime, podcasting is rapidly
gaining acknowledgment from the business community as a valuable
communications and marketing tool.
"About half of the show's attendees will be independent podcasters,"
Bourquin said. "The other half will be from the corporate side who
produce podcasts for their own company or for clients."
Registration numbers so far for the 2006 Podcast & Portable Media
Expo are at 3,000 attendees and 85 exhibitors, up from slightly more
than 2,000 attendees and 60 exhibitors last year. In addition, two
of the three "official" hotels of the Podcast & Portable Media Expo
are already sold out. The third is nearly full.
More content, more conferences
With the incredible growth in podcasting and portable video content,
there are currently thousands of programs that cover a variety of
niche and mainstream topics.
"For listeners and viewers, the challenge is finding the content
they want from all of the choices available," Bourquin said. "For
podcasters and other content creators, the challenge is
to stand out in an increasingly crowded space."
To help meet that challenge, Podcast & Portable Media Expo 2006 will
offer an expanded range of conference sessions to accommodate the
ever-growing and increasingly specialized podcasting market. Areas
covered will include:
Marketing and Communications
Subscription Business Models
Advertising and Sponsorship Models
Product Placement Models
Distribution and Syndication
Licensing and Digital Rights
The show floor at the 2006 Podcast & Portable Media Expo will
feature a broad range of both well-established and new, trend-
setting companies. Expo sponsors include PodcastReady, Podango.com
and Audible's Wordcast. Exhibitors include audio equipment
manufacturers Sony, Shure, Samson and Marantz; software makers
Adobe, Rogue Amoeba, TechSmith and Podcast Station; and RSS
distribution and management company FeedBurner, among others.
Microsoft and AMD will be sponsoring a blogger lounge. Limelight
Networks is the Official Content Delivery Network. GigaVox is the
Official Conference Audio Provider. Media Partners include The Mac
Observer, iPod Observer, Videomaker Magazine and iProng.com.
Although space is filling up quickly, exhibitors are still
encouraged to apply.
