Podcast Expo an ‘unexpected hit’

Approximately 2,500 people from 20 countries and 55 exhibitors attended last week’s Portable Media Expo & Podcasting Conference in Ontario, California. Organizers of the show reportedly anticipated only 1,000 attendees.

“We had two groups of people attending,” show organizer Tim Bourquin told Marketwatch. “The first was folks who just want to do better podcasts and who wanted to meet other podcasters. Then there were the corporate folks who work for companies which want to get into podcasting and do it in a way that puts them in a good light.”

Bourquin said next year’s event, scheduled for Sept. 29 and 30, will be larger and better structured. “We were sold out this time, and lots of people couldn’t attend the sessions they wanted to,” he said. “We’ll probably be creating ‘tracks’, maybe five or six. One for hobbyists, one for the business side of things. With more room, we’ll be able to break it down.”

Portable Media Expo & Podcasting Conference tomorrow, booths opening

iLounge will also be hosting a panel discussion, “Expanding the iPod: From Tech Toy to Icon, Music to Multimedia,” with leading iPod accessory manufacturers. The panel will convene in Room 107 from 11:45AM to 12:45PM on November 11 (Friday), and is open to attendance by paid conference attendees. TNC New Media’s Official Site for the event contains additional details and travel directions.
