Portable_Media_Expo_2005The Podcast and Portable Media Expo, being held Sept 29-30 in Ontario, CA opens today.

“We’ve been planning this event for nearly a year,” said event organizer Tim Bourquin. “It’s like a bobsled – you start pushing it downhill, and, after awhile, it picks up momentum and speeds on its own.”

Bourquin recently described highlights of the two-day event:

  • Leo Laporte, of the TWiT.tv podcasting network; Ronald Moore, the television executive behind the Battlestar Galactica Podcast (and tv show); and Andrew Barron of Rocketboom will be delivering keynote addresses, which are free and open to the public.
  • Breakout sessions are channeled into five general “tracks,” ranging from Podcasting 101 to business and corporate podcasting, to special-interest and hobby podcasting.
  • Podcast recordings of all breakout sessions will be available after the Expo.
  • Dozens of exhibitors will be showcasing their wares throughout the two-day event.
  • People’s Choice and PME Awards ceremony Friday, September 29.

Podcasting News Publisher Elisabeth McLaury Lewin recently interviewed Bourquin about plans for the Expo.

We’ll be bringing you news throughout the next two days from the Expo.
