BwB 1.0


Blogs with Balls 1.0 took place on June 13, 2009 in New York City:

Additional Sponsors



  • Registration begins at 10 AM. Because we far exceeded attendance expectations, it is strongly recommended you get to the venue and signed in early. This will also give you a prime opportunity to network and socialize. This was a key element in the conceptualization of the day – to get people in one room to interact off-line! The next opportunity to do so will not be until the after-party.
  • The program will begin at 11 AM sharp and we will adhere to a strict schedule.
  • Dress is casual. It will be a long, packed day. Make yourself comfortable.
  • There will be very limited Internet access during the day. This is somewhat intentional. We want you to pay attention to the speakers! As such, we recommend you make your own accommodations if you must have access (ie air card). Please remember, we will be in the cellar of the building, so this may still turn out to be sporadic.
  • We do encourage Tweeting from the event. We will use hashtag #blogswithballs.

Admission includes lunch sponsored by Guinness 250 Anniversary Stout, the full-day program that includes recently-added featured speaker Gary Vaynerchuk (in addition to our other esteemed panelists), and an invitation to an exclusive after party hosted by the editors of a prominent men’s magazine!
