The International Food Blogger’s Conference


The International Food Blogger’s Conference is coming back to Seattle in 2014!

IFBC held the first conference for food bloggers in 2009. This, the SIXTH annual conference, organized by and Zephyr Adventures, will be held in downtown Seattle, Washington. The series focuses on three themes: Food, Writing, and Technology. The event will feature high-quality educational sessions, personal networking opportunities, and what 95% of attendees say is the best food and wine of any blogging conference!

Bloggers, Food Writers, Cookbook Authors, Publishers, Agents & Editors, Food Brand / Restaurant Marketers, and Public Relations Professionals are invited to attend, but there is a great perk for those of us who are food bloggers. Anyone with an active blog who agrees to write at least three posts about the conference, will pay only $95 rather than the regular price of $395. You can choose to write your three posts about the conference itself, the venue, the sponsors, or the food and you can do so before, during, or immediately after the conference. This is their way of supporting food bloggers who are attempting to make an income from blogging.

Last year, attendees were treated to a surprise dinner where we were wined and dined and treated like celebrities at one of 25 of Seattle’s finest restaurants. That meal alone was worth many times more than the registration fee! You can read my report about the event and some of the gifts and treats that were heaped upon us here. (Be sure to bring an extra suitcase to take home the swag!)

Time is running out to sign up. Don’t miss the chance to get to know your on-line blogging buddies and meet some of the world’s most famous and successful food personalities. You can be among the first to sample and review new products. Learn from the experts about how to become a better writer and photographer and how to promote your blog. All this in addition to enjoying a fun-filled weekend in beautiful Seattle in September. See you there!

Dates: September 19 to 21, 2014
Registration Fee: $395 / $95
Organized by and Zephyr Adventures,

The working title for my first book was, “You’ll Never Know What You Are Missing.” It summed up my goal: to make eating for health synonymous with eating for pleasure. Once you discover the secret, you will find that the very best food for weight management, longevity, the treatment and prevention of disease, and over-all health and happiness is also the most sumptuous, satisfying, and indulgent way of eating the world has to offer. You are invited to the feast. Enjoy!

This sounds like it will be a lot of fun! I will be attending this year for the very first time and I can't wait. 🙂

unter der laterne: I don't see why that wouldn't work. If you follow my recipe, you will still need to add an acid and let the bones stand in cold water for 20 minutes before heating to draw the minerals out. My recipe is here:

You are most welcome to ask questions here on the blog. In fact it is better than putting them on Face Book because they stay with the post where others can find it. Thanks for the comment!

Judy, I am new to your blog site. I have a question , this is probably not the right place to ask it, but I do not have a Facebook account, so here it is: "is it possible to prepare the bone broth in a pressure cooker?"
Thank you so much! Barbara

Echo, I haven't priced other blogger conferences, but $95 seems like a bargain to me. Of course you have to add the hotel and travel expenses unless you live here. As I said, just the gourmet dinner would have cost more than a hundred dollars. (I don't know if they do that every year, but they will probably have similar treats in store.

Registration fee is not cheap for a food blogger conference.
