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 Foodista.com 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!
