Connecting Bloggers and Brands Conference kicks off its cross-Canada
tour in Vancouver this April
VANCOUVER, March 19, 2013 /CNW/ - The first Canadian Connecting Bloggers
and Brands Conference will be held in Vancouver on April 30, bringing
bloggers and national brands together face-to-face so they can learn
about how they can work together. It is the first of a six-city,
cross-Canada 2013 tour.
This year, the free conferences will focus on introducing the business
of blogging to those new to the digital media world. Active bloggers
will get to meet with some of the largest Canadian brands they might
write about, while those brands will get to hear about what interests
bloggers active in their industries. Attendees will get valuable time
to build relationships with representatives from the conference's title
sponsor, TELUS, as well as other sponsors including Canada Beef Inc,
and Chicken Farmers of Canada.
"The digital media world has truly exploded in the last few years, with
more and more consumers consulting their most trusted blogs before
making a purchasing decision," said Andrea Goertz, TELUS
senior-vice-president of Strategic Initiatives and Communications. "As
a parent, I see great value in an online community where moms and dads
share experiences about the products and services that make their lives
easier. At TELUS, we recognize how powerful word-of-mouth is, and
strive to be a brand that bloggers would recommend to their friends,
family and online communities. We are thrilled to be part of a
conference that brings this community together."
The conference will connect national and local brands to bloggers who
specialize in lifestyle, travel, technology, fashion, family, food and
more. Conference organizers recognize that a hyper-local approach will
offer the most meaningful relationship building opportunities, and are
happy to provide a forum for brands to share their products, services
and ideas with some of the country's most influential Bloggers.
"Our goal was to give all bloggers who wanted to work with brands the
opportunity to attend the conference for free." said Rania Walker,
In addition to the Vancouver conference, the Conferences will be held in
Calgary, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto and Halifax.
