#BlogChat – #BlogChat is one of the most popular chats on Twitter, led by Mack Collier every Sunday night at 6 p.m. PDT. Collier is bringing #BlogChat to BlogWorld in a LIVE format instead of online.

Networking Breakfasts – BlogWorld kicks off each morning with a networking breakfast where attendees can connect with each other and mingle with speakers, exhibitors and sponsors.

Hands-On Workshops – BlogWorld introduces hands-on workshops where attendees will do more than just listen, they will put the practices they are learning into play on location. Planned workshop topics include: SEO, webinars, public speaking, corporate blogging, photography, video, humor writing, successful Facebook pages, real-time content creation, content marketing and more.

Revamped Virtual Ticket – The Virtual Ticket has been improved so users feel as close to being at BlogWorld as possible. It includes more than 100 hours of session recordings and will feature Johnny B. Truant, a big-personality blogger and creator of the new Virtual Ticket, as the Virtual Emcee.

The event is being sponsored by the likes of Ford Motor Company, Technorati, Blogger, WordPress.com, and others.
