It’s really wonderful to know how a great majority of businesses see blogs and social media as a fantastic way of getting their brands across their target markets.
I was a participant at the recent Business to Blogger (B2B) Networking event called BLOGAPALOOZA 2013 held at the SMX Convention Center Aura last November 16 – it was my first time to attend this event and didn’t really know what to expect or do after registering.
There were a lot of booths inside the SMX function room which looked like a trade convention of sort – I’ve been to a couple of trade shows already and somehow I felt that it’s the same banana. So together with a couple of other newbie bloggers we went from booth to booth to see what’s up!
It’s a full interactive experience! We get to see, hear, feel and taste what these businesses has to offer the public and some even throw in a couple of their stuff as tokens to games and as a take-home souvenir! Here’s a visual tour of my experience at BLOGAPALOOZA 2013:
Didn’t get to taste this GAVINO donuts… was busy taking pics and I forgot to grab a bite.
Here are all the other booths that I’ve visited:
It was a fun experience for me! The whole afternoon was well worth it – I met a lot of blogger friends and new acquaintances plus I was able to finish a pending blog post during the break period because the wifi in the area was really good.
The coolest part of the whole event was the highly informative talks from guests like, Mikey Bustos, Jako and Marco of Bogart the Explorer, comedy cartel, Philip the Lifestyle Guy, Jayson Cruz, sexy Karen Bordador, Writer’s Block Philippines and the guys from Boys Night Out (Sam YG, ToniTony and SlickRick).
The event was hosted by VINCE GOLANGCO and presented by When In Manila (Vince Golangco) and Our Awesome Planet (Francis Simisim and Anton Diaz). Congratulations guys!
