TORONTO, Nov. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Spark Sessions, Canada's first fashion
and beauty blogger conference, will premiere as the ultimate Canuck
connection point for bloggers, PR reps, and industry leaders to immerse
themselves in blogging education, networking and the exchange of ideas.

"After attending the top fashion and beauty blogger conferences around
the world, I recognized the need for a Canadian born event," says

content. A unique yearly event to bring everyone together in this
industry is both an opportunity to network and a way to expose brands
to talented online voices."

well-versed in content and creating strong influences online. The
executive team includes Anjali Handa, Nicole Wilson, Jenny Jovanovic,
Elaine Atkins, Deanne Castro, Anum Khan and Melissa Grosser. In a few
months, the team has built up a prestigious line up of speakers, large
fashion and beauty brand participants and an eclectic roster of
bloggers and attendees.
Jeanne Beker, Canada's fashion icon, will act as the conference's
keynote speaker - a presence that brings Spark Sessions to the
forefront of Canadian fashion and beauty events. Another notable
Canadian speaker is Lainey Lui - scribe of the immensely popular gossip
blog LaineyGossip.com, Co-Host of CTV's THE SOCIAL, and ETALK Reporter.
