BlogOn is returning as an in-person event for 2021 and organiser Laura Seaton says places are booking up fast.
The Christmas themed event will take place at The Coppid Beech Hotel in Bracknell, Berkshire, on 2nd October.
Now in its 8th year and hosting its 16th event, BlogOn Xmas 2021 is set to welcome 200 bloggers and social influencers from across the UK. Brand spaces are already selling fast, with companies who have previously exhibited reserving their spots quickly. The event provides an excellent opportunity for leading brands to meet bloggers and influencers face to face and build important relationships and brand awareness amongst their key target audience in time for Christmas.
Laura Seaton, founder of BlogOn, commented: “We are over the moon to be once again planning an in-person event. Going virtual last year for the toy awards and for the conference worked well but nothing beats networking and meeting in person. With so much interest already, we are urging toy companies looking to be involved to get in touch sooner, rather than later.”
BlogOn will be following government guidelines put in place for events, and a full refund will be offered to brands who book to exhibit if the event does not take place. Stand spaces cost just £300, making it an affordable event for companies of all sizes.
Laura added; “The event is also an opportunity to do something creative; the last event saw attendees celebrate Batman’s 80th Birthday with Warner Bros. with Bat burgers and the Batpod from The Dark Knight film, as well as catching flower petals in an inflatable globe with Spin Master and Awesome Bloss’ems. With fewer spaces available due to Covid contingency plans, brands need to be quick to take advantage of this great opportunity to showcase new products and hero lines.”
The event will also be home to the 5th annual BlogOn Toy Awards, and companies are encouraged to exhibit entries in the brand area or in the special Toy Demo Zone. Nearly all of the previous winners of the BlogOn Bloggers Choice award have been demonstrated at the event, including the Wow! Stuff Invisibility Cloak which featured in the Demo Zone in 2019 and the Talking Sorting Hat exhibited by KAP Toys in 2018.
