Writing about the International Food Blogger Conference is something most attendees will naturally do. The food, speakers, content, excursions, and local area all provide excellent content ideas for food bloggers.
At the same time, bloggers get busy during the IFBC and revert back to their regular lives once returning home, making it sometimes difficult to actually write and publish all those creative posts one thinks up while attending.
To help everyone keep track of the hundreds of blog posts that come out of the conference, please fill out the form below when you write a post about IFBC17. You can also view all IFBC17 blog posts from your fellow attendees.
As an incentive, for each blog post that substantially mentions Sacramento, you will be entered in a free return trip to our host city, including two airplane tickets (some blackout dates apply) and two nights hotel. In addition, if you write about a sponsor, speaker, or our host city, we’ll let that sponsor or speaker know and encourage them to promote it on social media.
If you register for the conference as a Citizen Blogger, you receive a $300 discount in the ticket price. In return, you agree to write at least three blog posts about the conference. The subjects can be of your choosing but here are some sample ideas for you:
- Write a post when you register, just alerting your readers you will be attending and discussing what you hope to get from the experience.
- Pick a favorite speaker or two and write about them, perhaps sending them some questions via email after the conference for a Q&A style article.
- Write about a sponsor at the conference. Ultimately, sponsors are there in hopes you will write about them and won’t attend if you don’t. But you can create an interesting post by writing about the sponsor’s background, new products, or even employees you meet.
- Write about our host city of Sacramento. Sacramento proclaims itself the “farm to fork” capital of the country with good reason and you will experience many local restaurants, agricultural businesses, and more.
- Write about your fellow attendees! You could choose one or two to interview or just talk about the type of people you meet.
As a final tip, we suggest you email the speakers, sponsors, or other folks about whom you write. It is nice for them to know and often they will promote your post for you.
We understand time is always at a premium but we hope you agree there will be plenty of ideas for you to consider!
