More than two years ago, fellow blogger Arik Hanson and I put our heads together and founded the Minnesota Blogger Conference. We held the first conference in the fall of 2010, and we were happy to see the conference filled a need in the Minnesota community for bloggers to network, build connections and learn from each other. We had another great year in 2011 and are happy to be back again for a third year.
Here’s what you need to know:
The Conference: The conference will take place Saturday, September 22, 2012 at the Allina Health headquarters in Minneapolis.
Call for Speakers: In addition to hand selecting the best bloggers with the hottest topics to speak this year, we are also open to your submissions for topics. Complete the speaker submission form – we’re keeping our eyes out for engaging topics that haven’t been done before at the conference. Submissions welcome through August 6.
Registration Info: Tickets will again be free, thanks to our amazing sponsors. The tickets are pretty hot and move quickly. We’ve decided to release them in batches again this year – the first release will be 9 a.m. on Wednesday, August 22. See the web site for additional ticket releases.
Sponsors: We’ve got a rock star line up of sponsors this year – beginning with our location/space host Allina Health. We’re also thrilled to partner with Pioneer Press, National Camera Exchange, Mall of America and Strother Communications Group.
Our team: Arik and I are also particularly fond of our planning team this year, we can’t do it without them! Check out the team bios and get to know these folks!
