Don't Forget: BlogHer ’12 Evening At The Expo Is Back Tonight!

BlogHer Original Post

Last year at BlogHer ’11 in San Diego, attendees really loved the Evening at the Expo. It was a great way to kick off the conference, meet the sponsors and have a couple drinks on us!  Since it was such a huge success last year we decided to bring it back again this year at the Hilton New York. 

The Evening at the Expo will be held from 6:00pm to 8:00pm on Thursday, August 2nd. That's today! This year will be a little different because we will have three separate expo spaces to choose from!  We have the Americas 1 Expo hall and Mercury Ballroom on the third floor and the Rhinelander Gallery on the second floor.  There will be an open bar of wine, beer, sodas and water in all three spaces and tons of exciting sponsor activities, treats and giveaways.  Here’s a sneak peek of what the some of the sponsors have in store for you at this year’s Evening at the Expo:
