Share Article

Free passes to the premier virtual online tradeshow for ecommerce marketers are available courtesy of PR Web. eComXpo, featuring top blogger Seth Godin, starts today and runs through Saturday, Oct. 8.

With blogging revolutionizing the media world and reshaping the face of the Internet, eComXpo (, which begins today, will aid thousands of online entrepreneurs so they may increase their business presence.

PR Web™, the recognized leader in online news and press release distribution service for small- and medium-sized businesses, is extending its offer of complimentary eComXpo guest passes to the keynote address and virtual exhibition hall. PR Web™ guests who sign up now will have their standard passes upgraded to full show passes.

Full Show passes include entrance to over 100 educational presentations covering basic and advanced topics in search, affiliate and interactive marketing including blogging, RSS/Syndication, keywords, branding, email marketing, multi-channel strategies and customer-relationship building.

Blogging has broken wide open in the last few years to become a news source as viable as conventional media. People frustrated with traditional media's self-appointed role as tellers of the one true story have turned to blogs as a way around the media filter and have embraced blogs as a way to market online.

Seth Godin, bestselling author, entrepreneur, blogger and agent of change, will deliver the keynote presentation, “Who's There? Understanding how blogs and web 2.0 changes your business forever.”

eComXpo runs Oct. 6-8 and offers everything a traditional tradeshow does without the time or expense of travel because it takes place on your very own home or office PC. It allows more people to attend, which means greater benefits to exhibitors, speakers and other attendees.

Attendees can be at all presentations 24/7 and speakers are able to deliver their messages to thousands of people, rather than hundreds. New for the October show is the ability for attendees to view presentations up to 90 days after the show, as well as having access to archived presentations from the February event. Additionally, attendees can join forums and “hang-out” in the virtual lounge anytime throughout the show.

PR Web™ is the official media wire sponsor for the show.

Mick Jolly, executive vice president of PR Web™ and moderator of PR Web’s RSS blog (, says he is looking forward to interacting with the blogging community in their home environment. He will host a panel on public relations and search engines at the conference. “Blogging is changing the way news is spread online,” he said, “and our Online Visibility Engine™ can help marketers get their message in blogs as well as news search engines.”
