I just received my invitation to Blogapalooza 2015 yesterday when I got home! I’ve been thinking that I wouldn’t get to join because I’ve been waiting for their email for 2 weeks. I am so excited to be in the event this year! Is there any other first time attendees? Please let me know so we can hangout together because only bloggers who passed the screening can enter the event. I thought we’re allowed to bring at least one person with us, but then the event is only for bloggers. It’s not so bad after all. Now I get to find myself a new friend to tag along with me! That just made everything more exciting! See you guys at the event!
Blogapalooza is a community of Bloggers and Online Influencers wanting to feature and connect with Businesses
Blogapalooza started in 2011 with an annual Blogapalooza event that run for a day. It was an invite only event that only Bloggers and Businesses can attend. The rule was simple, Businesses present their products / services and build relationships with the Bloggers, while Bloggers get to see what’s new and network with Businesses to make deals happen.
The idea came about as there are too many blogger events each day, it would be hard for a Business to prepare an event and invite bloggers to their event (effort-wise, cost-wise, attendance-wise). So when we pool together the most interesting products and services and invite Bloggers, it saves them time and money (transportation, etc.) and gets them access to numerous Businesses. While Businesses enjoy high attendance rates of Bloggers and a very good number to tap.
Blogapalooza Events are composed of a Interesting Business Presentations, Entertainment, Trade Shows and Networking. Our events are always well attended and has always reached our target number (if not more) and promise to Businesses and Sponsors. We intend to improve this as we do more and more events in the future.
Today, Blogapalooza has diversified, from simply running one big annual event to running smaller events and a newsletter. We’re in the process of restructuring to offer more services and help more Bloggers and Businesses.
How does Blogapalooza Events work?
- Attendees include Influential Bloggers, Tweeters, Facebook Influencers and media outlets and place them all into one place to experience your product or service. We screen and pick influencers and pickout businesses that will be presenting to them. Presenting products or services can be done via Stage Time and thru the Businesses’ respective booths.
- Bloggers will receive a giveaway or promotional item from each Business to be able to review it. The main idea is to have them really experience something to ensure they are able to write about it honestly. Bloggers usually blog about the event (with mentions on sponsors and key highlights), as well as, the reviews that they do for each product / service they receive.
They are still open for registration! Head over to Blogapalooza now and be part of this awesome event!
