BlogOn, the UK event in which children’s brands can meet with social influencers and parent bloggers from across the country, is heralding the return of in-person eventing, as it prepares to host its 16th annual event, BlogOn Xmas 2021.
Around 200 parent bloggers and influencers will converge on October 2nd this year to take part on the Christmas themed event at The Coppid Beech Hotel, Bracknell, in Berkshire, where, according to the team ‘brand spaces are already selling fast’ with returning companies reserving their spots quickly.
The event provides an opportunity for leading brands to meet bloggers and influencers face to face and build important relationships and brand awareness among their key target audience in time for Christmas.
Laura Seaton, founder of BlogOn, said: “We are over the moon to be once again planning an in-person event. Going virtual last year for the toy awards and for the conference worked well but nothing beats networking and meeting in person.
“We will be following any government guidelines put in place for events and will be offering a full refund to brands who book to exhibit if the event does not take place.
“Our stand spaces cost just £300 making it an affordable event for companies of all sizes. With so much interest already, we are urging toy companies looking to be involved to get in touch sooner rather than later.”
BlogOn’s last event saw attendees celebrate the 80th anniversary of Warner Bros’ Batman with Bat Burgers and the Batpod from The Dark Knight film, while Spin Master entertained attendees with catching flower petals in an inflatable globe with its Awesome Bloss’ems brand.
This year, spaces at the BlogOn event will be limited due to the Covid-19 contingency plans.
Seaton added: “With fewer spaces available due to Covid contingency plans brands need to be quick as it is a great opportunity to showcase new products and hero lines.”
