The third annual Food Bloggers of Canada Conference, FBC2015, will be held between October 23 - 25, 2015 at Le Westin in Montreal, Quebec.
FBC2015 is Canada's only national conference for food bloggers. It's a fun, intimate event for bloggers, brands and speakers alike. We focus on:
- providing professional development for our members and other interested bloggers
- an intimate atmosphere (we only have space for 150 people) to foster blogger to blogger and blogger to brand networking
- great food!
FBC2015 is excited to announce chef, author and television personality, Ricardo, as our keynote speaker at FBC2015 where he will inspire and encourage.
The incomparable Mairlyn Smith (Canada's only professional home economist who is also a Second City alumni - making her Canada's funniest home economist) will be joining us all weekend as our conference MC - keeping us on schedule and full of laughter!
And New York Times photographer Andrew Scrivani will be answering questions on the always popular topic of Food Photography.
Combine that with sessions on SEO, Canadian legal issues that affect bloggers, branding yourself to stand out in the on-line world, taking your blog from hobby to profession and improving your storytelling by connecting with local farmers and chefs and you have a jam packed weekend!
You can meet all of our speakers and session leaders here.
We value our sponsor partnerships and the value and opportunities they bring to our attendees. We couldn't host FBC2015 without their support! We are very excited to welcome this year's sponsors.
Blogger/Brand Networking Event
Our event is intimate and encourages networking on its own. We want our attendees and sponsors to have the opportunity to meet one another and form productive relationships with one another.
This year we're taking it up a notch with our Blogger-Brand Networking Event on Sunday afternoon. You will be able to book short appointments with our sponsor representatives where you can sit down face to face and get to know each other. Be sure to bring your business cards and your media kits!
An Exciting, Fun and Educational Schedule
We believe in working hard and playing hard and we combine both this year!
Not only will you have access to informative sessions that will help you up your blogging skills but you will also have lots of time to network with your fellow bloggers. And of course, there will be fantastic food all weekend that will make any diet happy.
Top it all off with exciting entertainment from Devour The Food Film Fest and Cirque Éloize on Friday and Saturday and a few other special events yet to be announced!
You can check out the whole schedule here - be prepared to have a great time!
Extra Fun Stuff
As always, an FBC conference wouldn't be complete without some extras!
We'll be announcing a couple of fun, interactive contests just for conference attendees where you could win some incredible prizes! You'll also want to be sure to join us for our "get to know you" cocktail reception on Friday night - tasty treats and bevies for everyone. You might even find some extra goodies delivered to your room throughout the weekend!
And of course, you'll leave the conference with the coveted FBC Swag Bag!
