WASHINGTON – Thinking about attending News Expo 2007 with Ann Coulter and the big 10th anniversary party for WND in Washington this spring?

Thinking about joining Joseph and Elizabeth Farah and other WND personalities on the Caribbean cruise next January?

Would you like to do both?

The Farahs announced today that all those registering for the two-day News Expo 2007 will be instantly eligible for a special drawing to be held at the event May 11-12 for a pair of tickets to the cruise – a value of over $2,000!

The winners will get a a free window stateroom on the cruise that will be the culmination of WND’s 10-year anniversary celebration.

“With our 10th anniversary plans this year, we’ve thrown a lot of activities out there at WND readers,” explained Joseph Farah, founder and chief executive officer. “It might be tough for some people to choose between the News Expo in Washington and the cruise to the Caribbean. Now, everyone who registers for the News Expo will have a legitimate shot at getting on the cruise for free.”

The cruise offer is for all those who register for the entire two-day News Expo 2007 event in Washington. It includes two full days of programming – debates, Q&As with top newsmakers, open mikes on the floor, lively interaction between attendees and speakers, multimedia presentations – a Friday 10-year anniversary bash for WND and a big Saturday night awards banquet featuring Ann Coulter.

Those who register for the event now are eligible for early-bird discounts of $265.

“This is a no-brainer,” said Farah. “Save $265 by registering now, and get in a limited drawing for a $2,000 cruise to the Caribbean.”

News Expo 2007 takes place in the biggest room in the nation’s capital, the Washington Hilton – the same venue as the annual White House Press Correspondents Dinner.

Participants will engage in discussions of hot issues such as:

  • The North American Union

  • Illegal immigration and the border crisis

  • The global Islamic jihad

  • The Middle East

  • The U.S. economy and the plight of the dollar

While programming decisions are still under way, you can count on hearing from WND Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein, Farah and David Kupelian, managing editor and author of “The Marketing of Evil.”

Here are some more highlights envisioned for NEWS EXPO 2007, May 11-12:

NEWS EXPO 2007 will be announcing new speakers, sponsors and programs as they are confirmed.

“This will be unlike any other conference ever held in Washington or anywhere else – no academic speeches, no long, boring panel discussions,” says Farah. “The goal is to keep the audience on the edge of their seats throughout two days of interpersonal news engagement. It’s an opportunity for ordinary people to come mix it up with the news professionals and newsmakers they watch on television.”

There are many conferences where national issues are debated and discussed. But never before, he says, has an event like this been organized with the specific intent of breaking news – bringing attention to under-reported stories, ideas, whistleblowers and newsmakers in a forum designed especially for those on the front lines.

News junkies, bloggers and long-established news organizations will sit side by side and have equal access to the news makers.

Topics explored will include border security, immigration, plans for a “North American Union,” Islamic terrorism, the Middle East conflict, religious freedom, the proper role of a free press in a free society and “the culture war.”

Make plans now to participate in NEWS EXPO 2007 in Washington, D.C., May 11-12.

Think of it as the world’s fair of news!

NEWS EXPO 2007 is planned as the first of a series of annual events to explore news in a new way, to put under the bright lights of examination ideas, stories and activists worthy of more examination, to demystify the process of news gathering, to honor the best, the bold and brave in media work and, most of all, to uphold the highest calling of the American free press – to seek the truth – and, in this case, have fun doing it.

Are you a news junkie? Are you a blogger? Are you a part of the New Media? Are you part of the mainstream media and just trying to understand the changing dynamics of the news business? Do you really believe that the truth will set us all free?

If so, you won’t want to miss NEWS EXPO 2007.

And, again, you can save $265 by registering early for the full conference experience – including the keynote address by Ann Coulter at the awards gala grand finale evening Saturday night.

Be sure to get extra savings by booking your rooms at the Hilton Washington now and locking up the special conference discount.
