WASHINGTON – Here’s one more good reason to sign up now for News Expo 2007 – the Washington, D.C., conference like no other ever produced.

Aaron Klein

WND Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein will be coming stateside for a rare appearance in the U.S. Klein will be on the program Friday, May 11, the first day of the two-day event. He will also be on hand Saturday night for the “Courage in Media Awards” presentations with keynote speaker Ann Coulter.

Klein is the heroic young WND correspondent famous for his interviews with leading jihadists and his extraordinary sources throughout the Middle East.

Many more exciting speakers and presenters will be added to the program in the weeks ahead. But News Expo 2007 is already shaping up as the most important Washington conference of the year.

Join WND’s founders, Joseph and Elizabeth Farah, at the 10th anniversary celebration of the leading independent news source on the Internet.

Join Coulter & Company for the first annual “Courage in Media Awards” presentations.

Join Klein and WND managing editor David Kupelian, author of “The Marketing of Evil,” and many other invited guests – including White House press secretary Tony Snow, new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, experts on the North American Union, immigration, border security, the Middle East, the global jihad and other hot topics.

And, as an added bonus, all registrants to News Expo 2007 are automatically eligible for a special drawing for two free tickets to WND’s luxurious Holland America Caribbean cruise set for January 2008.

The drawing for those tickets will also be held at News Expo. Winners will get a a free window stateroom on the cruise that will be the culmination of WND’s 10-year anniversary celebration.

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.

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.

“This will be unlike any other conference ever held in Washington or anywhere else – no academic speeches, no long, boring panel discussions,” says Joseph Farah, founder of WND and a director of NEWS EXPO 2007. “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 up to $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.
