Hundreds of the world's leading bloggers, podcasters, videobloggers, and tech-savvy enthusiasts will once again descend upon the city of Seattle, Washington from August 20 – 22, 2009. The ninth Gnomedex conference is generating a fair amount of buzz in the blogosphere, which underscores our reason to produce it. Indeed, we will once again become the crossroads between producers and observers, between users and developers.

  • Who? Influencers, Entrepreneurs, and Enthusiasts!
  • What? A confluence of leading bloggers and new media!
  • When? August 20 - 22, 2009!
  • Where? Bell Harbor Conference Center in Seattle, WA!
  • How? With love and passion for all things tech!
  • Why? Because all things are possible!

Sponsorship opportunities are still available.

Nine years ago, we designed an event that would overturn the unwritten rules of the conference world – organizing a single-track schedule, treating every attendee like a VIP, charging substantially less and providing substantially more. In 2001, we were testing a theory – but by 2006, we were selling out half of our passes before announcing a single participant or sponsor. But Gnomedex isn’t just about filling seats – it’s about unlocking the attendee’s spirit.

We are heavily involved in every aspect of event planning and execution. From vision to logistics, our team has consistently produced a world-class conference which influencers have come to hold in great respect. Indeed, the blogosphere speaks highly of few other professional gatherings.

Gnomedex (to us) is a living organism. With the right partnerships planted, we see our events continuing to unfold. We have already set the stage for this “television show” of sorts – an ongoing series of video and audio discussions which serve to bolster our brand and value. is also continuing to undergo a transformation to help further enable this social experience.

While technology brings us together, technology at Gnomedex is ancillary to its role in our daily lives. Software, hardware – it all boils down to experiences, personal and shared. We have deliberately opted not to funnel Gnomedex into a single “technology” silo. This has afforded us the freedom of lateral maneuverability – enabling us to appeal to a wide variety of enthusiasts who use technology for personal and/or professional pursuits. Politics, commerce, art, academia, philanthropy, science, communication – all areas touched by tech, and all relevant to the Gnomedex audience.

We have supported personal media revolutions (blogging, podcasting, etc.), and those communities have supported us in turn. Our conference has positioned itself as a zeitgeist for thought leaders and followers alike, and continues to play a role in relevant online and offline discourse.

It’s the heart of Gnomedex – the conference ethos – which ensures our continued growth and success. It's our amazing attendees and sponsors that keep us moving forward, year after year.

Please note: Tickets may be transfered, butnot refunded.
