BakeSpace.com’s TECHmunch is the traveling conference that helps food and lifestyle bloggers learn the skills they need to succeed and take their blogs to the next level.
Launched in March 2010 by BakeSpace.com, the day-long conference is a must-attend event for anyone serious about culinary content (e.g., food bloggers, recipe writers, traditional content developers, cookbook authors, PR/marketing reps) and brands that want to work with culinary content creators.
WHY A TRAVELING CONFERENCE?
TECHmunch is held in multiple cities each year (see our schedule for upcoming event dates and locations). We started this conference because we believe bloggers shouldn’t have to pay a lot of money or travel far to attend a world class conference. This mission statement still holds true to this day. Each city event is coproduced by a local blogger who helps define and shape that city’s programming and speaker lineup — aligning perfectly with the community’s need for stellar content.
