Today Only! Discounted Tix To Mediabistro Circus

mbcircus.pngWe have ten discounted tickets for Mediabistro Circus only available for FishbowlNY readers!

Click here to register, use the promo code FBNY245 and score a ticket to the Circus for only $245. But don’t wait, because this offer expires at close of business May 28 or when tickets run out (and we only have ten), whichever comes first.

If you haven’t already picked up a ticket to the two-day conference, you are probably on the fence about whether there will be anything interesting there for you to see and learn. Well, there will be. Promise.

Mediabistro Circus will kick off Tuesday, June 2 with a presentation about self-promotion by Tim Ferriss, the author of the best seller “The 4-Hour Workweek.” In today’s difficult job climate, its more important than ever for journalists (employed or otherwise), freelance writers, bloggers and authors to use all the tools available to them to promote themselves and their work.

And if that doesn’t grab your attention, perhaps you will enjoy the panel called “Strange Bedfellows: The [New] Media Deal,” featuring Chuck Cordray and Tom Smith from Hearst‘s Digital Media side and NYmag.com‘s general manager Michael Silberman, moderated by FBNY managing editor Rebecca L. Fox.

And of course, on Wednesday afternoon there will be a performance by Cirque du Soleil.

If you want to take part in fun, its not too late, but you have to act fast. Register now!

Cirque du Soleil At The Circus

cirque.png Our new editor is gearing up for her first trip to Mediabistro Circus on June 2-3 and excitement couldn’t be higher around here.

But just wait until the incredible performers of Cirque du Soleil take the stage on the last day of the Circus. Nothing makes us happier than acrobatic feats or displays of physical skill, like these two on the left, performing a tango on a unicycle (!) — and we’ve been assured they will be there next week.

Cirque du Soleil director of creation Carmen Ruest will also be on hand, speaking about turning a small company into the tumbling world-wide franchise it is today. And of course there will be tons of other fun speakers like Fiona Spruill of The New York Times and John Byrne, executive editor/editor-in-chief of BusinessWeek.com.

Come meet us there!
