International Podcasting Expo
Anybody know what's going on with these guys? They ran the first online podcasting expo last weekend which is (obviously) over now. I was hoping to get an after-action report from them, but they have nothing that I can see on their site. The site looks exactly the same as before the expo ran.

Isn't it customary to at least change the site to indicate that the event has occurred and is over? I mean, I can still sign up for the expo that ended four days ago on the site. Seems like they just closed the doors and wandered away into the midst. Not a great feeling.

Given how the end game has been fumbled so badly, not I'm REALLY looking for feedback on how the expo went.

Unfortunately, what you said is very true - it took some time to change the International Podcasting Expo site - my bad. It was a one woman show first time around, and clean up was slow. I submitted all of the results of the Expo to PodcastingNews.com, but they never posted it. They will be posted, however, in the upcoming issue of Podcaster Central Magazine. In the meanwhile, I'll share them with you here, and on the site:
Lastly, let me share statistics from some of the polls we have been conducting.

-Monetize your podcast 17%
-How to create a podcast 15%
-What is podcasting? 13%
-Find Royalty-Free / Podsafe Music 11%

2) What’s the most important part of a good podcast?

-Content 33%
-Personality 12%

7) Would you be interested in being updated as to the development of next year’s International Podcasting Expo throughout the year?
-Yes 88%

There were about 125 attendees, and we averaged a rotating 40 people per seminar (of which there were about 30), not bad for an expo which was put together in 6 weeks by one person. Now, we have a team of at least 10 people working on the Women's Podcasting Expo and the Fall International Podcasting Expo, so we are expecting this to be 5 - 10 times larger.

I would love to send you a complimentary CD of the first Expo, so you can experience the sessions, albeit 2nd hand. Just contact me at customerservice AT 1stpod.com.
