Is Blogtacular aimed at a particular niche?

Design, photography, interiors, video, food, craft, fashion, beauty, personal, lifestyle, business, art, technology – we’re talking about the themes which drive every blog. Check out our schedule for an overview of last year’s content.

What time is the conference?

The conference is 08:30 – 18:00 on Saturday 16th June with fringe events starting at 14:00 on Friday 15th June 2018.

What are fringe events?

We organise smaller meetups for people who are in town ahead of the conference. For 2018 we will be hosting afternoon photowalks and organising informal dinner plans for the evening.

Can I be on the same photowalk / attend the same dinner as my friend?

All photowalks and dinners are randomly allocated based on a number of factors. We do not place people together on request unless one of them holds a carer’s ticket.

Is this a women only event?

No, Blogtacular is an inclusive event. Men may be in a minority here but that only makes you more special.

Can I bring my baby?

The event is strictly adults only. A carer can meet you in the building lobby if you need to feed a baby but they must not be brought into the venue or sessions. If you need to express milk get in touch and we’ll arrange a secluded spot.

Do you offer carer tickets?

Yes, please get in touch and we will tell you how to purchase a discounted ticket.

 

I want to tell everyone about Blogtacular!

Thank you! We have badges for your blog. Whether you’re speaking, attending or just want to share the love and spread the word visit our goodies page to grab the code.

If you would like to interview Kat please get in touch and we will get you booked in.

Can I suggest a speaker or session?

Speaker applications are open until January 31st. We’re always open to suggestions but please direct the speaker to apply rather than applying on their behalf.

Where is the event?

1st Floor, 200 Aldersgate, St Paul’s, London, EC1A 4HD.

Closest tube stations: St Paul’s & Barbican (City Thames Link, Moorgate and Bank are also nearby – always check for engineering works!).

Venue subject to change.

Where should I stay?

Being a central London event you have are able to choose from the wide range of hotels on offer. We recommend staying close to the Central Line and within a short ride of St Paul’s.

I know the photowalk is the only session which can be pre-booked – how do I get on it?

We want to make sure all ticket holders have an equal chance to attend this session. In late May all ticket holders will be given one week to register their interest for the walk. We will then allocate spots on a random basis.

This allows us to manage the logistics of the walk while still giving the most people possible a fair chance at attending the session.

The photowalk will take place on Friday afternoon 2 – 4pm before a Friday evening social so be sure to factor in arriving / dropping bags on Friday if you’re hoping to get on the walk.

I have a ticket but can’t attend, what should I do?

Tickets are non-refundable. You are able to transfer full priced tickets to another person until 1st May 2018. You will be charged a £30 admin fee to complete the transfer. Please get in touch via the contact page.

You’ll find answers to more ticket questions on the tickets page or in the T&Cs.

Will you launch a blogging awards?

No, Blogtacular is all about community, building each other up and celebrating what we all do well. Competition isn’t part of our mission.

I have a question you haven’t thought of!

  • There have been a lot of posts about the press release from the CMA this week. Lots of them about ‘new’ influencer posting rules, some of them inaccurate or misleading. Have you heard something that worries you? We’re always happy to share knowledge and point you in the right direction so please ask if you need clarification. 
You know we’re big supporters of following the rules and clearly disclosing at the beginning of posts - it’s the only way to cement our reputation as an industry committed to transparency. But, as with all rules getting to grips with them isn’t always plain sailing. Our podcast episode 36 is a masterclass from the ASA themselves in how to keep your ads, gifts and products clear online. #blogtacular
