TECHmunch NYC Food Blogger Conference
We’re proud to announce that the TECHmunch Food Blogger Conference returns to New York City on September 30th. It’s the sixth year in a row TECHmunch has come to NYC to give Big Apple food and lifestyle bloggers a deliciously local conference to call their own. Launched in 2010, TECHmunch combines networking, panels, tastings and demos to inspire even the most seasoned culinary influencers. To date, we have produced nearly 30 TECHmunch conferences in cities across North America.
Like every TECHmunch, the format on Sept. 30 will be fast-paced, no-nonsense and dedicated entirely to helping make food blogging a deliciously rewarding experience. Culinary industry PR and marketing professionals are also invited to attend to learn, network and contribute to the discussion.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Anyone serious about creating great culinary content (food and lifestyle bloggers, recipe writers, traditional content developers and cookbook authors) as well as brand marketers/PR professionals and food/lifestyle startups interested in working with top culinary influencers.
CAN NON-FOOD BLOGGERS ATTEND?
Yes of course! A lot of our chats will be focused on food content, but anyone interested in improving their content strategy will walk away from our event with useful information.
TECHmunch is produced by multi-Webby and IACP honored BakeSpace.com, — a leader in online food content, community and DIY publishing – all with a tasty grassroots approach.
