Bannockburn, IL (PRWEB) June 15, 2005
Building on the overwhelming success of the first eComXpo virtual tradeshow for eCommerce marketers, eComXpo is calling for presentation proposals for the next show, October 6-8, 2005.
New for the next show, eComXpo has expanded the show to include tracks of interest to search engine, interactive, and non-profit marketing professionals, as well as affiliate marketers. It will consider presentation suggestions from leaders, experts, authors, educators and professionals of interest to these audiences.
Declan Dunn of the DunnDirectGroup, one of the top-rated speakers at the last eComXpo felt that the ease of creating and delivering his presentation added to the successful feedback he received from his audience. ÂThe virtual nature of eComXpo allowed me to reach and interact with hundreds of participants from the comfort of my own home office,Â said Dunn. ÂI had no travel costs and was able to answer questions from the audience with my feet up on the couch! IÂm already working on my presentation for the next eComXpo.Â
eComXpoÂs unique patent-pending xPocastÂ technology makes it easy for presenters to prepare their materials in advance and interact live with their audience, including polling, questions and answers and the exchange of business cards.
Presenters are encouraged to submit proposals for presentations, panel discussions, and/or educational sessions for the eCommerce marketing professional. Robert Grosshandler, eComXpo Speaker Chair, polled attendees from the last show to find out what theyÂd like to see at the next show.
ÂIn addition to expanding on the key topics, attendees have expressed interest in hearing about the latest techniques in interactive advertising, search engine marketing, site building, motivating affiliates, publishing, email marketing, blogging, fraud, spam, phishing, financial, regulatory, legal and employment issues, and of course, hot new products and technologies,Â said Grosshandler. ÂWeÂre looking for introductory, as well as advanced information for our attendees.Â
eComXpo is the first virtual tradeshow for search, affiliate and interactive marketers. Its unique technology and approach provide the benefits of a traditional tradeshow, allowing exhibitors, presenters and attendees to have fun, exchange information, network and generate hundreds of new business leads without the hassle, time or expense of travel.
eComXpo debuted last February, attracting over 1,600 attendees, 100 exhibitors, and the exchange of over 8,000 business cards. These numbers are expected to more than double for the Fall 2005 show. Additionally, 75 top industry luminaries addressed attendees with interactive presentations that were attended over 11,000 times throughout the three day conference. Speakers included Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Internet & American Life Project, Daniel E. Hess of comScore NetworksÂ®, Inc., Doc Searls of IT Garage, George Garrick of wine.comÂ® and many more.
Shawn Collins of AffiliateTip.com, a speaker himself at the first eComXpo, wrote in the February 22, 2005 publication iMediaConnection ÂÂ but the thing that really struck me was the nature of the presentations. They ran over 75 educational sessions led by the leaders in the space. These presentations could be viewed at scheduled times or on demand after the scheduled first run. eComXpo also addresses the needs of the majority of affiliates by running the event online with an extremely low price-point. It was the first event of this magnitude in the industry, and as far as I was concerned, it was a great success. I managed to recruit some affiliates, share some ideas, and learn a couple or three things.Â
