Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know Blogalicious Weekend is the event to attend this year. We’ve emailed and shared updates about our wonderful sponsors, speakers and workshops. You know who’ll be there, what they’re bringing and that the opportunity for you to network is there. By now, you also know that we’re returning to Atlanta and will make the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Buckhead our home for that weekend.
In today’s Round Up, we’re not rehashing what you already know. Instead, we’re providing you with a checklist to ensure that you get the fullness of the Blogalicious experience. We want you to learn and have fun. If you do these things now, you’ll spend more time doing just that come November 3-5!
6 Things to Do Before Blogalicious Weekend
Have you booked your hotel room?
Today is the last day to book your hotel room in the Grand Hyatt Hotel at $169/night. Every year, we secure a hotel block for our attendees to stay in the conference hotel at a cheaper rate. The deadline to take advantage of that deal is tonight. Please book your room immediately if you intend on staying at the conference hotel!
Have you found a roommate?
We have a long Roommate thread in our exclusive Facebook group for attendees in need of roommates. (You can’t miss the photo!) Take a look at the comments and see who still needs a roommate or two. This will be a fun way to get to know new people, reconnect with your old friends and save money on your room.
Have you joined the Social Suite?
As mentioned above, we have an exclusive group for past and present conference attendees called the Blogalicious Social Suite. We share tips, resources, ideas and new ways of doing the same old thing. We’re big on engaging and cultivating community, so if you’re on Facebook (we know you are) and you’re coming to #Blogalicious8, join our group here. You won’t be disappointed.
Have you signed up for our newsletter?
If you’re on our email list, your inbox is constantly on #fleek! That’s because we want to keep you informed on what’s happening with us, in the community and for the conference. Besides, our theme is Content Is Life, so it’s only right that we send you all the content! Just recently, we told you that our premium sponsors are Dove, Coca Cola and Kia. Now’s a great time to plan your introductions in case you’d like to chat with their representatives. Join the Blogalicious newsletter today.
Have you registered for #Blogalicious8?
None of the above would be possible if you haven’t registered for the conference! Without having registered, you won’t get a nice name tag, have a reserved #SeatAtTheTable, or have the opportunity to connect with coaches and mentors like Stacey Ferguson, Ramon Ray, Arsha Jones and Danica Kombol! Blogalicious 8 is somewhere you want to be and the best part is that we really want you there! Register now while we still have tickets left.
Have you built your schedule?
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could select which workshops and sessions you want to attend now? With Sched, that’s possible! Take 5 minutes to look at our extensive agenda and plug in where you want to be each day of Blogalicious Weekend. While you have the option to print out your schedule, Sched makes it easy with it’s digital capabilities. You can also download the app, with the conference logo, to your phone’s home screen for easy access. (Our Tech Advisor, Terrance Gaines, shared a quick tutorial on how iPhone users can do this in the Social Suite yesterday!) Build your schedule here.
We’ve said it many times, but it’s true: We can’t wait to see you there! Let us know if you have any questions.
