Congratulations, you’ve made it through the most depressing month of the year: January! You’re now (hopefully) done with your detox, no longer AS broke from the holidays and starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Was it that bad? Now that February is here, it really means summer is just around the corner –or closer at least– which makes it the right time to start planning the sunnier months ahead!
There’s one summery thing we’re very much looking forward to, and that’s our annual FBC conference in London, taking place the 6th, 7th and 8th of June, 2014.
For those FBC Alumni who blessed us with your presence last year at #FBC5, we’ve got some pretty good news and are delighted to announce that this year’s growing community event will once again take place at . . .
With such growing interest eager to embark on the 6th annual FBC event, we’ve upgraded to a bigger ‘Grand Hall’ to better receive our guests and to allow Pluto (@Pluto_BAC) the BAC’s resident cat, more napping space amongst the inspiring community of international bloggers! And, to celebrate holding FBC at the Battersea Arts Centre (@Battersea_Arts), another round of discounted full weekend passes are on offer starting as of February for £199! You can register for your Hungry Bird Weekend Pass here.
Community is key to us and that’s what keeps us fueled. While food is and will always be our main focus, this June, as we’ve previously announced, we’re joining forces with the rest of the blogosphere and are opening the doors for travel, tech, lifestyle and fitness bloggers from every corner of the globe to satiate their raging appetites, while connecting and networking outside of the more studious confines of the grand conference classroom hall. Blogging doesn’t have to be a lonely place. This mélange will permit us all to gain further understanding, skills and perspectives in fields that are still quite hazy to us, and what better way to all come together and learn from each other than around delicious food & drinks on display at the FBC StrEAT Party?
Over the span of the weekend, the FBC StrEAT Party will return with some of London’s most innovative and exciting feeders joining in mass, serving up the kind of food and drink that shows why the Capital is really starting to make a name for itself as a global food hub. But it doesn’t stop there, we will have food and drink on offer from not just in and around London, but enthusiastic feeders from afar, providing attendees with a festival of flavours to bite into. And if dietary preferences are of any concern, rest assured the #FBC14 StrEAT Party includes options for food lovers on all horizons from vegans to meat lovers for a feast you’ll struggle to forget and that won’t leave you hungry! We’ll also be showcasing the pick of the brunch in the industry to further connect bloggers and brands, so stay tuned for upcoming announcements to discover a taste of what you’ll experience come June!
Take a look at last year’s presentations, to get a better sense of what’s being cooked ahead! This year’s FBC program definitely won’t leave you indifferent, as it is packed with useful tips, funky facts, delicious discoveries and wonders, that can only drive and help you grow in your field of blogging. Here are a few of the topics we aim to tackle at #FBC14, and that we think will inspire and be useful to all our target bloggers – no matter the niche.
Reputation management and online presence growth
Successful sponsorship and brand collaborations over the years
Hands on SEO workshops
Monitoring and analytics tools
Styling, photography and writing
Review products, restaurant, travel and services
and much much more!
Before we reveal all the specifics though, we urge you to register here if you haven’t yet done so, since the price will increase as soon as Pluto the cat comes out of the bag with the much awaited #FBC14 speakers programme!
For those of you who have booked their FBC14 passes and are ready to go, what better way to keep your mind off these gloomy beginning-of-the-year months, than to start planning your trip and accommodation in London with some recommendations here?
