"We're honored that many of the key companies in the New Media marketplace roll out their most significant news at New Media Expo," said BlogWorld CEO, Rick Calvert.  "Timely content from bloggers, podcasters and web video creators is now essential for brand success, and the companies that exhibit at NMX are on the leading edge of connecting new media content with commerce."
