The FunFest Influencer Summit returns for 2017

The FunFest Influencer Summit is making its return this September, with a more blogger activities and brands than before.

Now in it third year, FunFest is the UK’s family-friendly blogger conference and brand ambassador event and has grown over three years to accommodate a broad spectrum of bloggers, vloggers and YouTubers.

This year’s event will see a larger programme of activity and an extended showcase of brands and entertainment properties exhibiting and getting involved.

Rooted in its family focus, the show will aim to look beyond toys and traditional children’s products to include video games, books, apps, tech, bikes, music, sports and more.

The FunFest Influencer Summit will return to Whittlebury Hall Hotel and Spa, Northamptonshire on Saturday, September 16th.

The show will offer visitors the chance to meet brads looking for new ambassadors and media partners and take part in networking opportunities with peers.

“The influencers of today are as much likely to use YouTube, Twitch and Facebook Live as they are to present their media channels via the written blog. And that’s why we’re ensuring that FunFest 2017 will better reflect all areas of social journalism,” said Mimram Media director, Lisa Carter.

“At the same time, we’ve widened the brand sectors covered at FunFest. Toys important, but FunFest 2017 will also include brands from the worlds of video games, books, musical instruments, tech and more – in essence, anything that your kids love doing – and that parenting influencers love writing or talking about.”

Ruth Leonard, marketing director at co-organiser, MI PR Global, added: “Fun Fest has been a great success over the past two years, inspiring bloggers and providing brands with a fantastic opportunity to engage with these important influencers.

“We’re delighted to be working with Mimram Media on FunFest 2017 and to be taking the event to the next level.”
