The New Media Expo (NMX!) 2015 Las Vegas is coming up with a quickness! This year, the event will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from April 13th – April 16th, 2015.
We are stoked to say that WebDevStudios will have a booth at the event and our killer CTO, Brian Messenlehner, will be speaking at the event as well. His session, “WordPress the Web OS. Building Beyond the Blog,” will cover WordPress’ capabilities beyond what the average person may know, its infinite extendibility as a CMS, and how flexible and complex it can be, allowing it to suit a wide variety of needs. His presentation will be held on Wednesday, April 15, at 11:30 AM in Pavilion 11.
Dre Armeda, Shayne Sanderson, and Scott Bolinger will all be in attendance as well, so don’t hesitate to say hello–even if it means waving from across the crowded room and yelling, “I KNOW YOU!” (Okay, well, maybe actually stop by and say hi and pick up a discount code for Maintainn while you’re at it!)
Bloggers, podcasters, and web TV content creators come together at NMX to expand their base knowledge on content creation, monetization, and distribution of their work, as well as network with some of the biggest media creators in the world. According to a recent press release, the event hosts 98,000 attendees from 150 countries, as well as 1,600+ exhibitors and has sponsored support from big brands like WordPress (hey, we know them!).
This has been mentioned nearly ad nauseum at this point, but yes, WordPress is powering almost a quarter of the world’s websites, and as WordPress fans and experts, we couldn’t be more excited to continue evangelizing WP’s versatility and functionality at such a massive event.
While normally we use these event posts as an opportunity to highlight specific sessions at events that caught our eye, we wanted to give this one another twist: Since WordPress is such a major player, it’s not surprising that some of the very accomplished and noteworthy speakers are already running their sites on WordPress. Despite knowing this, I was still incredibly surprised to discover just how many of these incredible media moguls are running their sites on WordPress.
Here are a few people that we hope to run into at NMX Las Vegas 2015 who have already jumped on the WordPress party bus:
