Thank you to GOLD Sponsor SunButter Sunflower Spread for their support of the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference!

SunButter is a delicious peanut butter alternative, plus it is nutritionally superior. SunButter has just as much protein as the leading brand of peanut butter, but with one-third less saturated fat, absolutely no trans fats, less sodium, and less sugar. One serving of SunButter Sunflower Spread provides more vitamin E, twice as much fiber and zinc, and nearly triple the iron than is provided by one serving of the leading peanut butter!  

SunButter Sunflower Spread is made in the U.S. from locally-grown, specially-roasted, GMO free sunflower seeds, which are processed in their dedicated peanut free and tree nut free facility. Their sunflower seeds are grown in a region of the country where peanuts are not grown, eliminating the risk of cross contamination. SunButter is produced in one continuous process from field to table that ensures a fresh roasted flavor, improved product consistency and a finished product that is free from all of the top 8 food allergens.

Available in 5 delicious varieties: Creamy, Natural, Natural Crunch, No-Sugar Added, and Organic. SunButter can also be purchased in convenient On-The-Go Single Cups and 5 lb. Tubs.

2015 Open Call for Speakers

We are beginning to plan for the third annual Food Allergy Bloggers Conference. As part of this we must organize the agenda and speakers for #FABlogCon 2015.  The Call for Speakers and Ideas will be open for 4 weeks, closing on January 20th, 2015.  We look forward to creating another memorable conference, strengthening our friendships, support networks, and making new connections!

Please fill out our Open Call for Speakers Submission Form

CallForSpeakers

We thank you for your interest in becoming a presenting speaker at the third annual Food Allergy Bloggers Conference, November 13-15, 2015.

*Please note: No prior speaking experience is necessary for consideration. Submission of form does not guarantee acceptance. All entries will be reviewed and selected participants will be contacted regarding interest and availability in participating. If you are submitting as a single speaker, please be aware we may add complementary speakers to a panel for a rounded out presentation. We only have select number of open topics available, and will chose those we find with widest appeal, importance of topic, and strong or original content. We will keep submission ideas for future conference planning if unable to use all this year as there are only so many agenda sessions available.  Further, be advised that we do not pay speaker fees though speakers do receive free conference attendance ticket.

We will review all submissions and notify you via email by February 15, 2015 if your proposal moves to the next phase of planning.

#FABlogCon 2015 Sneak Peek Details!

We are actively working on  plans for the next Food Allergy Bloggers Conference, and we think you will be excited by what’s in store for 2015!

#FABlogCon 2015 will be held November 13-15, in Denver Colorado. Registration details, Eventbright ticket sales and Sponsorship information will be released in the next few weeks. The event will be held at the Denver Renaissance Hotel, (near the old Stapleton Airport)-

Based on the survey results you filled out after the 2014 event, and in consideration of the 2013 results as well, the 2015 conference will be moving to a new city, and a SMOKE FREE hotel! We have taken into consideration aspects from our event in Vegas that made the conference easy for our guests and our sponsors. We know that safe food is imperative, but we also need to accommodate attendees with asthma, allergic rhinitis, and other related issues. Plans will be put in place to make sure that we accommodate everyone.  The Denver Renaissance will be offering us comparable block room rates, and they offer complimentary shuttle to and from the Denver International Airport (or it’s only a $35 cab fare).

We fully realize the importance of getting the food “right” (SAFE!) – so with that in mind we will be hiring Chef Keith Norman to help with both the menu creation as well as coming to the new site to do staff training prior to the 2015 conference date; to ensure the safety of our guests and their dietary restrictions. The Denver Renaissance is looking forward to partnering and eager to host our event! We are so excited to be bringing our Food Allergy Bloggers Conference to the Mile High City!
