First GeoPublishers.com Expo Provides a Wealth of Information During Weekend Run in Chicago

I'm back from the first ever GeoPublishers.com Expo that was held at the Fairmont Hotel in downtown Chicago over the weekend. The event got underway with a reception hosted by GeoPublishers.com President Fred Mercaldo Friday night (Sept. 30, 2011) and continued with a jam-packed business day Saturday that featured 10 separate sessions. Two more Sunday morning before the show closed sent attendees home with some great tips and invaluable information that will help them strengthen their geodomain based businesses.

I sat in on every session (and stood for one - the keynote talk that I gave Saturday morning) and am working on a wire to wire conference recap with photos and highlights that will be up before the week is out (Update: Our full show review is now available here). In the meantime, two friends and fellow conference attendees have already commented on their experiences at the show; Nat Cohen wrote about on his DomainArts.com blog and Michael Cyger (who, like Nat, is a geodomain owner) posted at DomainSherpa.com

GeoPublishers.com is guided by a board that includes many former members of Associated Cities, the pioneering geodomain trade association that was supplanted by the new group after some widely publicized internal political issues unfortunately caused the AC effort to stall. With many taking a wait and see attitude following the past turmoil and subsequent transition to GeoPublishers.com, attendance at their first Expo was light. However, those who went enjoyed a heavyweight program at a superb venue - a promising first step that should help the geodomain industry move forward and realize its massive potential. GeoPublishers.com has assembled a powerhouse Board of Directors who are all dedicated to making that happen.

There is one more board member who was unfortunately unable to attend - Scotland's Tommy Butler (Glasgow.com).
