With less than two months to go, the 2009 Wine Bloggers’ Conference is right around the corner and already has 180 participants signed up and preparing their palates for a truly exceptional weekend of all things new wine media.
The Mutineers are sponsoring and will be there in full force to connect with bloggers, cover the action, and hopefully have a showdown between us and Steve Heimoff and his non-existent entourage of irrelevant writers. Heimoff was a speaker at last years WBC, forcing me to choose between challenging him to a duel or actually learning something in another seminar being held at the same time. I chose the latter, and the wily Heimoff snuck out the back before I could call him out. Like Captain Ahab and Moby Dick, Batman and Joker, and Energyologist Jeff Dorenbush and non-caffeinated beverages, all arch-nemesis’s must eventually meet…
If you are considering attending the WBC this year, you most definitely should. You’ll try a TON of wine, meet a TON of people, and have a blast doing it.
Last year’s keynote speakers were video blogger and Mutineer Issue 3 cover guy Gary Vay-ner-chuk and renowned writer Alice Feiring, with both doing an outstanding job and arming attendees with wisdom to apply to their own blogs and projects.
This year the keynote speakers are all about technology with Chris Alden of Six Apart and former AOL CEO and Chairman Barry Schuler.
