Retailing at $150 each, a day pass entitles you to all the daytime sessions for the day of your choice, lunch, snacks and the conference swag bag. Breakfast and dinner are not included. The Thug Kitchen session on Saturday night is not included. You can purchase your tickets through Eventbrite.
#CDNCheeseComfort Twitter Party
On Tuesday, September 30th at 9pm ET (6pm PT), we’re celebrating the arrival of Fall with our friends over at 100% Canadian Milk! The conversation will be all about Fall, comfort food, cheese tips and lots of ooey gooey cheese goodness made from 100% Canadian Milk. You can participate - all you have to do is check out all the details here and RSVP so you're eligible to win a prize!
Are you a blogger heading to FBC2014? Are you feeling frazzled? Worn out? Tired of canning or doing dishes or herding children? Is your last manicure a distant blurry memory? Can't remember the last time you sipped some bubbly?
Let the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver come to your rescue. Between now and October 7th post a photo of why you need to be rescued to Instagram. We want to see your frazzled face, your sink piled high with dishes... in other words, your most creative photo of why you deserve to be rescued. Tag it with #FSToTheRescue and you will be entered to win a hotel upgrade package that includes a room upgrade to the FS City Executive Suite, a massage treatment at their Red Cedar Spa, and a bottle of champagne to pop while overlooking beautiful Vancouver.
But wait! If you're sharing a room, the upgrade package will be for you and your roommate which would put you in the Most Amazing Roomie category. That's right, showing why you need #FSToTheRescue could mean a suite upgrade for two, a massage for two and champagne with two glasses! As for those in a room on their own, if you win, you can enjoy everything in peace and tranquility.
From now until Oct. 7th, post your photo on Instagram and tell us why you need to have #FSToTheRescue. Use the hashtags #FSToTheRescue and #FBC2014. FBC and the Four Seasons will select the winning photo and the winner will be contacted by Oct. 8. Contest is open only to FBC2014 attendees who are staying at Four Seasons Vancouver Oct. 17-19, 2014.
