The premier virtual online tradeshow for ecommerce marketers will feature top blogger Seth Godin and other online entrepreneurs. Forums will focus on online marketing to teens, understanding how blogs can help businesses succeed and tips for getting published.

PR Web™ is looking for a few good bloggers. The recognized leader in online news and press release distribution service for small- and medium-sized businesses and corporate communications invites 250 bloggers to join them at eComXpo, the three-day, completely virtual tradeshow. An essential event for eCommerce marketers, bloggers, networks, etailers, agencies and advertisers, eComXpo takes place online October 6-8, 2005. PR Web is the official media wire sponsor for the show.

While PR Web™ is extending free guest passes to the eComXpo keynote address and exhibition hall, conference organizers are sweetening PR Web's offer by offering to convert bloggers' standard passes into full conference passes.

In recognition of blogging as an emerged force, PR Web™ wants to extend an invitation to bloggers to attend this important networking event.
