I put together a list of my favorite conferences. These conferences are especially helpful for internet entrepreneurs and social media marketers.

1. New Media Expo ( NMX )

January 4-6, 2014 – Las Vegas, NV
The New Media Expo is put on every January in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is one of my favorite conferences because it is geared toward marketing online, social media, podcasting, blogging, and running an online business. At this event you'll learn from the best in the industry; including Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income, Chris Ducker (owner of VirtualStaffFinder.com), Jaime Tardy from EventualMillionaire.com, John Dumas from EntrepreneuronFire.com, Amy Porterfield from AmyPorterfield.com, and Cliff Ravenscraft from the PodcastAnswerMan.com. The sessions are great, and as alway the networking opportunities are amazing. It is after the sessions while out grabbing cocktails and mingling that you really get to meet and build relationships with everyone. I will be at the 2014 NMX Conference and would love to see you there too! To get 20%, off sign up before November 27th 2013 using promo code ” AN20P ” during checkout.

5. World Domination Summit

The World Domination Summit brings together entrepreneurs and marketers from all over the world.

Portland is a beautiful place and you get to meet movers and shakers in the industry.

6. Ted X Conferences
