Announcing BlogHer Food '10, October 8-9 in San Francisco
Today, I'm thrilled to announce the dates and venue for BlogHer Food '10, our second annual food blogging conference!
BlogHer Food will take place on October 8th and 9th at the beautiful Palace Hotel in San Francisco, CA.
So, to anticipate your immediate questions:
1. Yes, you heard that right, the conference is expanding to two days! There were just so many great ideas for sessions and workshops and panels, and not enough hours in the one day to accommodate them all. So, we're going to model BlogHer Food after the annual conference and convene on both Friday and Saturday.
2. Yes, you can register right now. Registration is open. You can sign up for one or both days. Like last year we do anticipate selling out quickly. We are doubling the duration of the conference, but not growing the capacity by much.
3. Yes, we are returning to San Francisco. This is similar to how our annual conference was in the Bay Area for the first two years while we worked on getting the format and model just right...and then we hit the road.
4. The Palace is an exquisite venue for a conference...and an expensive place to spend the night. Luckily, San Francisco has hotels of almost every size and style within a short distance of the Palace. Stay tuned for a hotel map that will provide additional (and more economical) lodging options for attendees traveling to San Francisco for BlogHer Food '10.
We're very excited to bring back BlogHer Food after a fantastic inaugural event! Please tell us what you think, and what you would most like to see there.
