In just a few short days, this coming Sunday, is one of the events that a lot of bloggers are waiting for – the Blogapalooza!
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. (source)
I attended my first ever Blogapalooza last year. Even if I was not able to stay until the end, I have enjoyed the experience. I also met a few bloggers that made the experience all the more enjoyable for me.
And I just remembered, I need to have my business card printed already. Since I cannot squeeze some creative juices out of my almost fried brain, I asked my brother to design it for me. Looks great! I will post it some other time. 🙂
Blogapalooza 2015 is on the 25th October from 10AM – 9PM. It will be held at One Esplanade, SM Central Business Park, Seaside corner Bay Boulevard, Pasay City.
See you at the event!
