NEW YORK, June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- During its keynote session on June 6th, BlogWorld, the world's largest new media conference and tradeshow, announced it is changing the name of its event to New Media Expo (NMX). This name better represents the entire industry and community and is inclusive of all online content creators. The official Twitter hashtag of New Media Expo is #NMX.
"When we started BlogWorld in 2006 the new media industry hadn't really formed yet. Changing the name from BlogWorld to New Media Expo was always the plan, but the timing wasn't right until now. The industry has clearly defined itself and the name 'BlogWorld' no longer embodies everything in the industry our event is about, which is blogging, podcasting and Web TV," said Rick Calvert, CEO and co-founder of BlogWorld.
From the beginning, BlogWorld's goal was to bring all new media content creators together at one comprehensive industry event. "We are, and always will be, married to the mission of the show, not the name. While we love the name BlogWorld, because it indicates where this amazing industry began, it no longer reflects the entire community as well as NMX does." Calvert continued.
BlogWorld & New Media Expo is sponsored by .ME, Stitcher Radio, Social Chorus, WordPress, Overblog, Stickam, Simul TV, Social Moms, SEOMoz, Engagio, Mobile Roadie, SAG/AFTRA, Mobile Libris, Social Radius, YouSayToo, GeekBeatTV, MyDamnChannel, PR Newswire, NewTek, TechZulu and more.
