About the IFBC
The International Food Blogger Conference was the first food blogging conference in the world and is still considered by many to be the best. The 2017 conference takes place September 29 – October 1 in Sacramento, California and will draw approximately 300 food bloggers, writers, social media gurus, food industry members, and others for four days of content, excursions, fun, and food.
The conference takes place at the Sacramento Convention Center, located in the heart of Sacramento. Sacramento is not only the capital of California, it is the center of the nation’s food production industry and considered the farm-to-fork capital of the country. Being surrounded by farms and food companies allows the International Food Blogger Conference to provide exciting content and better, fresh local food options.
Located a short four-minute walk from the Convention Center, the Residence Inn offers 15 floors of spacious suites that contain fully-equipped kitchens, a living room area, and work desk in addition to a free hot breakfast daily. The hotel is rated #1 of 80 hotels on Trip Advisor for Sacramento. Studio suites (one king bed and one queen sleeper) are available at an IFBC discounted rate of $129/night, which also includes a complimentary breakfast, free WiFi, a 24-hour fitness center and a discounted parking rate of $10/day. Two-bedroom suites, with double the square footage, are $229 per night. Book your room at this link. Parking is at a reduced rate of $10/day.
You can also choose to book the Hyatt Regency Sacramento at our group rate of $154. The Hyatt is a AAA Four Diamond luxury property located adjacent to the Sacramento Convention Center and features views of the California State Capitol and City Skyline. Amenities include a 24 hour fitness center, full service spa, two bars, two restaurants and complimentary Wi-Fi. To book, use this online reservation link.
Getting To Sacramento
The Sacramento International Airport is by far your best option for flying into the area. (Hint: we find it the easiest airport for most of Northern California because it avoids the congestion of San Francisco.)
To get from the airport to the hotel, you have several options. The Super Shuttle starts at $13 one-way using our discounted group rate and a taxi is about $40. Uber is also an option and there is a local bus for only a couple of dollars.

Zephyr Conferences is the organizer of six food, wine, and beer conferences. (In addition to the IFBC, you might consider joining the Wine Bloggers Conference that will take place November 9 – 12 in Santa Rosa, California.) In reality, the folks at Zephyr are simply a bunch of active travelers who have been running tours around the world for 20 years as part of Zephyr Adventures. Their love for wine, beer, and food travel got them into conference organizing in the same industries and, eventually, the creation of their sister company Taste Vacations which runs wine, beer, and food tours that leave the physical activity at home.
