BEA Blogger Conference Update

I want to thank the BEA Bloggers Conference Advisory Board for our meeting last week.  It was
highly productive and we finished 5 minutes early!!   Here are a few items worth sharing with
everyone from that meeting:
  • There will be a Call for Papers opening Early December and run up until January 15th  It will be announced on the BEA website and through the BEAN and all of BEA's social media outlets.  People will be able to submit conference suggestions from a link on the BEA Book Bloggers page. 
  • The BEA Bloggers Conference will Incorporate tracks into this year’s programming 
    • Ideas included genre based, level of blogging, blogging interests
  • Plan for more Networking Opportunities among bloggers either through a sponsored Cocktail Reception or an hour of free time either during lunch or as a coffee break
  • We made a number of mistakes with the blogger registration process in 2012.  The new process will be simplified, clear and transparent. 
    • Bloggers will be able to register for BEA AND the conference for one low price.
    • Any bloggers wanting to attend just BEA and not the BBC will have a discounted special rate.
    • Bloggers wanting to register for a free media pass can do so, but will be subject to similar criteria as all working press  
We are extremely grateful for the group of bloggers that are participating to insure we deliver an event that is created for and designed by bloggers.  While there were ups and downs in 2012, we hope it was apparent how much BEA values book bloggers. 
BEA Bloggers Conference Advisory Board: 


  1. What is the official hotel for Book Expo?

  2. For other handset vendors, moving away from Microsoft won't hurt their positions in mobile. Most have windows 7 professional retail pack focused their efforts on Android, largely because of the operating system's flexibility, reputation, and price tag (you'll find no licensing charges like with Windows Telephone). With Microsoft's purchase of Nokia windows 7 professional retail, they're likely to concentrate much more on Google's operating system.
