Australia’s growing blogging movement is in good shape if the number of blogger events is any indication.
Now the people who brought you the latter event are busy planning the 2012 Digital Parents Conference in Melbourne on March 30.
They’ve even scored a platinum sponsor for the event – Kleenex Mums.
For bloggers, by bloggers
Early bird tickets to the conference sold out in record time and sales are continuing steadily more than five months out from the event.
Billed as an event for bloggers, by bloggers, the Digital Parents Conference gives Australia’s ‘mum bloggers’ (plus their dad counterparts) and those who tell their personal stories through posts, the chance to leave their online personas behind and network, learn and share.
Excited about the opportunity to harness the buzz that is hundreds of bloggers in one place, Digital Parents founder Brenda Gaddi said the day had been planned with content for experienced and new bloggers.
“It’s a day for learning, no matter whether you’ve been blogging for a day or five years,” Brenda said.
“The aim of the conference is to encourage all bloggers to be the best they can and encourage relationships to blossom offline as well as online,” she said.
The Digital Parents conference at the Sebel Albert Park, Melbourne, includes keynote speakers, panels, workshops, networking and a trade expo.
Melissa Gassman from Kleenex Mums said the community site was sponsoring the conference after great success at this year’s conference in Sydney.
Sharing the collective wisdom
“Kleenex Mums is proud to be the platinum sponsor of the Digital Parents conference for the second year running. Our community is based on sharing the collective wisdom of Aussie mums and dads, and what better way to achieve this than thorough blogging!” Ms Gassman said.
Negotiations are currently underway with further sponsors for the conference.
Blogger tickets are available until sold out at $179 for the conference, dinner and dance. Tickets are also available for PR/Brand/Company Delegates for $209. Accommodation can be booked with the Sebel Albert Park separately.
