I Heart New York and BlogHer Sponsors! A Round-Up of Sponsor Activities at BlogHer '10.
New York, New York - I cannot wait to get there! And not just because “it’s a hell of a town.” In just 9 days we’ll be kicking off our biggest conference ever! We’re pulling out all the stops and so are our 100 conference sponsors. They have some amazing things in store for you this year. Here’s just a preview of what awaits you…
Ready to put on your boogie shoes? Have a Just Dance dance-off with your blog buddies in Ubisoft’s booth, #1100. You can also try out some of their other games for Wii and DS. Perfect for the gamer in all of us!
Returning sponsor Liberty Mutual’s Responsibility Project will once again be engaging in conversations on the topic of personal responsibility. Be sure to stop by their booth #1006 to weigh in on the topic.
Want to live-blog from the conference or recharge your mobile devices? The Volt Recharge Lounge: The Official BlogHer Internet Café is the perfect spot! Chevrolet will have chargers for every device under the sun and will be providing a relaxing environment for you to plug-in.
