When it comes to social networking I’m no Mark Zuckerberg (the guy who founded Facebook) but I have a profile on Facebook and I tweet our news stories on Twitter, and as soon as I have a free minute or two I plan to join LinkedIn.

I bring this up because for the 2011 International Biomass Conference & Expo May 2-5 in St. Louis, we have launched a social media site called Biomass Connect.

Once you register for the event, you can start interacting with conference attendees prior to the show by setting up meetings, discussing hot topics or conducting other business.

I have signed up and have already started receiving emails from people letting me know they are going to be at the conference so we can be looking out for each other.

BBI International is also hosting a Business n’ Breakfast Series at the conference to help attendees better understand social media and how it can work for their business. The session called Social Media and PR Strategies to Grow Your Business and Win Over Industry Skeptics, will focus on Twitter and LinkedIn along with other social media and online tools.

The social media series will be moderated by Matthew Spoor, vice president of sales and marketing at BBI International, and presenters include John Nelson, senior marketing manager at BBI International; Greg Veerman, principal/executive creative director of Astronaut Studio; and C. Scott Miller, founder and president of The Miller De Wulf Corp.

The session will be held from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. on May 5 in Room 104/105.

This is just one more reason to attend the International Biomass Conference & Expo. For more information or to register, go to
