I swiftly packed a bag this morning for this afternoon’s trip to Vegas. Not that I just found out I was going this morning, but just because I procrastinate. Let’s be honest.
It’s going to be a quick trip for me. I arrive tonight, attend the Social Health panels tomorrow, fly out Friday at noon. Oh, and a few meetups and parties in between, of course!
After a few months of being at my new job, I finally feel like we are beginning to head toward some exciting things for the company in social media. I’m looking at this trip in particular as a jumping off point. I’m going to Las Vegas to mingle with others in health care communications and chat with them about social media (brainstorm ideas, talk about barriers, their unique experiences, etc.), hear about the latest and greatest of social media and health care, and meet new folks in general, but I’m looking forward to coming back to Denver motivated. Just like I did after SXSWi.
With the light research I’ve done, I can already tell that BlogWorld is going to be different than SXSWi. I think it will be a little more intimate, a little more focused, and have a little bit of a different crowd. I’m excited for what’s to come.
But, speaking of procrastination, I think my flight is boarding. I should try not to miss that flight to Vegas. Eek!
