  • We love to showcase indie business at Blogtacular and give them the same space opportunity as big brands to connect with bloggers at conferences. You’ve met the goody bag contributors and now let me introduce our 2018 Market Place! We were joined by five indies all of whom were showing and selling their products at the conference. The whole space was buzzing with Yuk Fun, Notes Beauty, The Fabric Fox, South Island Art and Capture by Lucy Backdrops all showing at the conference. #blogtacular
  • We pride ourselves on how smoothly Blogtacular runs and it wouldn’t be possible without this team of wonderful people. Dora has been working with us over the last couple of months to plan the event, Sarah & Claudia have been with us since the very first event streamlining the customer experience and operations, Momtaz & Natasha joined us for a second year to host rooms alongside Alex who took on our third room this year and Hannah joined the ops team alongside Mr Kat to make sure everything was where it was meant to be. We are so grateful to our team for giving up their time, energy and ideas to make our conference the best it can be. #blogtacular
  • Holy moly - what an incredible event! We filled two days with colour, fun, friendship and so much learning. Huge thanks to everyone who came to the conference and everyone who worked so hard to make it a truly exceptional event. You really are what gives Blogtacular its spirit and the reason we’ve loved every minute of all five conferences. Over the next few days we’ll be sharing moments from the conference and some exciting news for future events but for now, we’re going to bask in the happy glow of your positive energy! #blogtacular .
