We had to move the date to avoid a clash with another blogger event, but it seems that a September event suits you – and our event partners – far better, which makes it good news all round!
We’ve also listened to your feedback to tweak the day’s line-up to suit your requirements even more.
So, just as a reminder of what you get for the £39.99 ticket to the event, we thought we’d provide a full round-up of what we have in store for you on Saturday September 12th.
The idea behind the FunFest Blogger Summit is to provide some genuinely useful advice from peers and experts on how you can turn your blog into a profitable business, and our conference sessions will now only run in the morning, giving you plenty of time to explore our brands in the afternoon.
At the same time, we’re giving you the opportunity to meet up with some of the biggest brands in toys and children’s entertainment – all of whom are looking for new Brand Ambassadors.
And on top of all of that, we’re giving you the opportunity to bring your children along for free! Well, we couldn’t have the top toys of this Christmas on show without allowing the kids to enjoy them too, could we?
We’ll also have children’s entertainment running throughout the day, a Fun Zone where kids can spend time testing out this year’s top toys, plus a Quiet Zone, manned by child minders in the conference area, so you can enjoy the sessions without worrying about your little ones. There will also be a whole host of other themed rooms, so watch this space!
We are signing new event partners every day, and we are pleased to announce that so far, they include JCB Toys, Carte Blanche Greetings, Pudsey The Dog, Lazerbuilt and Icon Live. Watch this space for more exciting announcements next week!
The Expo and Brand Networking element of FunFest will see leading toy and children’s entertainment companies demonstrate their autumn/winter lines. They are all looking to work closer with bloggers going forward, with FunFest giving them – and you – the opportunity to discuss collaborations.
