We are hosting the 4th annual Food Allergy Bloggers Conference to be held at the Renaissance Hotel in Denver, Colorado on November 4, 5, & 6 of 2016.
The goal and mission of this conference is to bring everyone together and to form lasting new connections; learning, teaching, and sharing with one another. We welcome you with the understanding that food allergy community bloggers are different. We blog to share knowledge, more than to gain readers, sell things, promote ideas, or even to make money. We do this to help others, connecting them to resources to make the journey easier. Part of that is finding our own support network: of fellow bloggers, companies and products that help us to help others, who are managing food restrictions. We are authentic in both our praise and loyalty, to the brands and products we use and recommend. This is a chance for inspiration and collaboration. Having your company not only represented with, online influencers of the food allergy community, but connecting on a personal level with these passionate advocates at the start and throughout the conference is an opportunity you won’t want to miss!
We will host a social meet and greet the opening night [Friday 11/4], then 2 days of panel discussion sessions, and the ‘expo’ will be available to attendees during set times of the conference. You are welcome to join any and all sessions.
We are reaching out to your company to offer you the opportunity to participate in any number of ways. We anticipate an audience of aprx. 300 highly targeted food allergy bloggers and community influencers, but we can exceed this number and also have attracted support and engagement from the celiac community, as well Colorado residents whom will be attending. This event is a unique opportunity to interact with the key influencers in the food allergy community. The attendees reach thousands of new customers through their blogs, support groups, and social media reach. Thank you for your interest and support, we look forward to hearing from you!
