The FBC2018 Great Canadian Road Trip
After hosting FIVE sold-out national food blogging conferences from 2013-2017 the crew at Food Bloggers of Canada have decided to shake things up and hit the road! It's time to share the FBC experience with as many people across Canada as we can!
Starting in Vancouver and heading east, we'll be driving for three weeks from coast to coast! We'll be hosting 10 events in 10 cities this September and we'd love to have you join us!
Because what's a road trip without friends?
Where Are The Pit Stops?
We're so glad you asked!
We'll be hosting a mixture of one-day mini conferences, half day workshop events, long table dinners across the country and one intimate overnight retreat in the Canmore, AB!
