One By One Media will be launching a floating business blogging conference for October 5-9, 2006. This conference will be the first of its kind, as the conference will occur on Royal Caribbean’s popular ship the Enchantment of the Seas (do not forget Bill Slawski’s SEO by the SEA, which was held in part on a Skipjack sailing the upper Chesapeake Bay).
The conference presents some of the brightest blogging minds in the business including: Jeremy Wright of b5media, who recently released his book Blog Marketing and B.L. Ochman who spearheaded the recent blog campaign with Budget Rental Car.
“These presenters were chosen for their forward thinking in the use of blogs as business marketing and advertising tools,” Turner said. In addition, the cruise will feature emcee Scott Goldblatt, a 2004 Olympic Gold Medalist and now professional blogger.
The blog cruise will leave Fort Lauderdale on October 5 and travel to Key West and Cozumel, Mexico before returning to Fort Lauderdale on October 9, 2006.
The Blogonomics Blog Cruise will include presentations on blog strategy, we will share practical tips and tactics, address the tough questions, and present business blog success stories. There will be numerous networking opportunities and a number of workshops for learning the practical uses of blogs as tools for business.
A combination of ocean view cabins and inside cabins will be available on Royal Caribbean’s Enchantment of the Seas.
Ocean view cabins are priced at $1,295 per person while inside cabins are $1,195 per person. Guests staying in the same cabin, but not attending the seminar are $795 for ocean view cabins and $695 for inside cabins. Friends and family are welcome to join participants on this cruise, and these additional cabins and rates are subject to availability at time of booking.
