BlogHer Conference Update - - October 27, 2012
I'm back from my restful vacation (thanks to Jenna for covering for me!) and boy were we busy while I was gone -- and this week too!
I think for this week, the most important thing I want to share are some upcoming deadlines and recent announcements:
- BlogHer Food '13 Call for Ideas ends on October 31. Submit your idea soon and be part of our fifth annual Food event. If you need a little help generating ideas, you can check out our Conference Speaking Opportunities page and see what we look for -- don't be shy!
- Early bird pricing for BlogHer '13 ends on November 7. Register today and save!
- We announced our Call for Ideas for BlogHer '13. You have until November 15 to submit your ideas and be part of the program! Same as above, don't be shy. Check out our Conference Speaking Opportunities page and read what we are looking for in a speaker, moderator or idea.
In addition to the announcements above here are some other reminders:
Registration is open and moving along quickly, so don't delay purchasing that ticket and booking your hotel room. Tickets and hotel rooms will go quickly. Remember, registration is $199 and we have a great rate at the Fairmont SF: $209 per night for Wednesday and Thursday night (in room Internet included). If you have already registered, make sure and grab your blog bling and decorate your blog!
Tease: Watch for an announcement next week related to BlogHer PRO :-)
BlogHer Food '13
Did you happen to see the post Erin wrote about Austin and the preparation for BlogHer Food '13? Well! I have to say, after I read it I was instantly hungry and excited for next summer in Austin.
Our host hotel, Austin Hilton, is in the perfect location to cater to our fabulous foodies and they are ready to *wow* everyone with their Texas fare. In addition to fabulous food and friends we are offering a great hotel rate of $199.00 per night, single or double occupancy (in room Internet included) and of course our already low conference ticket price of $298 per person. Note: if you register for a full conference ticket, the closing party is already included in your price. However, if you would like to bring a friend to the party, they will need to pay for a closing party ticket.
Another tease: Watch for a BlogHer Food '13 announcement next week! ;-)
On to BlogHer '13 in Chicago...
As I mentioned above we have announced our Call for Ideas open, so if you have a great idea for a session, now is not the time to be shy! Join in and help us craft the conference the community built.
And early bird pricing for BlogHer '13 is ending in a few short days, so grab that early bird ticket and save $200!
If you have already registered, make sure and grab a badge for your blog; we've got all kinds of options for you, but if you don't see something, let us know.
And of course, book that hotel room while we still have them; who can beat $199 per night, king bed or $209 for two double beds with in-room Internet included!?
Last but not least, we're still having fun with our Thursday Shoe Shot and this week is no exception! Miriam interviews Elisa Camahort Page about her passion for shoes. Take a peek at everyone else who is joining in -- won't you??
Until next time...
