BlogHer Conferences Weekly Update - - November 10, 2012

BlogHer Original Post

Wow, what a week this has been! So many things going on and so much to share, so let's just get started.

On Monday we announced our New Community Party plan.

As you know, BlogHer will host our ninth annual "conference the community built." We've always found that the best ideas -- for speakers, for sessions -- come from our community. And we've always had a commitment to featuring new voices.

This year, in that spirit, we're going to mix up our approach to our evening events and community parties!

If you have an idea for a community party during BlogHer '13, now is your opportunity to let us know. Complete the brief survey to let us know what fabulous evening fete you would like to help make a reality at BlogHer '13.

We only have a few party spots available, so not every idea will manifest into a party -- so the sooner we hear yours, and the more detail you can provide, the better.

Here are the important dates:

  • All ideas must be submitted by November 30, 2012
  • All notifications will be made no later than January 28, 2013

And then on Tuesday we announced the BlogHer PRO agenda!

BlogHer PRO is going to be a tactical, nuts and bolts, sleeves-rolled-up event to help the professionally-driven dive deeper, grow bigger, and learn more than ever before. We've got the day's line-up posted on, and many of our speakers already up on the BlogHer PRO Speakers' Page. We'll be adding more speakers in the coming weeks, including the Skills Workshop leaders.

The conference is already more than half-way sold out, so after you check out the agenda, grab your ticket to this one-day event at the beautiful Fairmont San Francisco. BlogHer's discounted room rates of just $209/night are good Wednesday through Sunday (Friday, Saturday and Sunday are based on availability) so we hope you'll stay a few extra days in the city after BlogHer PRO!

Along with the agenda announcement, Erin posted a BlogHer PRO mini conference guide to aide you in your planning process. In the post you'll learn about transportation, parking, what to pack, where to eat and so much more -- check it out and get your planning in order.

On Wednesday early bird pricing for BlogHer '13 ended but a 25% discount began!

For those of you who missed the earlybird price, we decided to re-introduce our Holiday Discount and offer 25% off the regular ($398.00) Blogger Rate Full Conference Pass price.

From the moment Earlybird pricing ended until the end of the year, the BlogHer '13 Blogger Rate Full Conference Pass, regularly priced $398, will cost only $299!

As a reminder, the Blogger Rate Full Conference Pass includes:

  • Meals and Breaks
  • Sessions
  • Expo Hall and Sponsor Suites
  • General Sessions and Keynotes

You can grab your 25% off ticket now!

Finally, we would like to wish our veterans from near and abroad a happy Veteran's Day (US) and a happy Remembrance Day; thank you for your service!

Until next time...
