Let’s Blog Abruzzo
‘Let’s Blog Abruzzo’ is a 2-day June 2013 bloggers conference in the heart of the breathtaking Italian region of Abruzzo that provides inspiration and technical instruction for bloggers of all levels and niches- personal, food, travel and business. It’s also the perfect opportunity to make new introductions, business contacts and referrals.
9 workshops are scheduled over the weekend whose core subjects include:
- Food & Travel Writing
- Search Engine Optimisation
- Social Media
- Integrated Marketing
- Online PR
blogAway will convene for 2 days in the old Medici hilltop town of Santo Stefano di Sessanio, 1250 masl, described by The NY Times as ‘poetically aged’ and selected as one of ‘I Borghi piu belli d’Italia’. It sits on Campo Imperatore, Italy’s ‘Little Tibet’ which the UK Times included in its Top 10 Adventures of a Lifetime. The weather in early June is dry and the average temperature is 30C.
Just 1¾ hours from Rome or from Abruzzo International Airport in Pescara makes the conference inviting to the Italian, International and European blogger. Accommodation starts at just €30 per night per person, but we have a generous discount from Sextanio which enables guests to experience this unique & boutique scattered hotel at €150 per double room per night including breakfast.
The 2-day weekend workshop is held on 1st-2nd June 2013 and consists of 9 workshops, each 1.5 hours in length.
Tickets can be purchased securely through Eventbrite. Tickets CANNOT be purchased on the day and sales will close Monday 20th May 2013
€180 – 2 Day Pass includes all workshops
€20 – Buddy Pass for those who wish to bring their partner to the event’s tasting lunches and evening receptions.
It is hoped that attendees do not just learn how to improve and optimise their blog during the 2 days, but also take time to explore L’Aquila, revel in Abruzzo’s natural beauty, taste its coveted artisanal products, contemplate its environmental future and marvel at its preservation despite the L’Aquila earthquake of 2009.
ALL monies after minimal overheads from ticket sales and sponsorship of Let’s Blog Abruzzo will be donated to 2 local community causes that:
- Improve the lifestyle of the local community as whole
- Facilitate travel tourism within the area
- Increase the brand reach of local food & wine producers
- Provide local employment
