Blogapalooza 2015

What is Blogapalooza?

It is a community of bloggers and online influencers wanting to connect and feature businesses. It started in 2011 with an annual Blogapalooza event that run for a day. It was an invite only event that only Bloggers and Businesses can attend. The rule was simple, Businesses present their products / services and build relationships with the Bloggers, while Bloggers get to see what’s new and network with Businesses to make deals happen.


The idea came about as there are too many blogger events each day, it would be hard for a Business to prepare an event and invite bloggers to their event (effort-wise, cost-wise, attendance-wise). So when we pool together the most interesting products and services and invite Bloggers, it saves them time and money (transportation, etc.) and gets them access to numerous Businesses. Plus they get to enjoy high attendance rates of Bloggers and a very good number to tap.

Blogapalooza Events are composed of an Interesting Business Presentations, Entertainment, Trade Shows and Networking. Our events are always well attended and have always reached our target number (if not more) and promise to Businesses and Sponsors. We intend to improve this as we do more and more events in the future.

Today, Blogapalooza has diversified, from simply running one big annual event to running smaller events and a newsletter. We’re in the process of restructuring to offer more services and help more Bloggers and Businesses.

How does Blogapalooza Events work?

Step 1: Businesses present their products or services to the Bloggers directly (via Booth / Show / Activities)

Attendees include Influential Bloggers, Tweeters, Facebook Influencers and media outlets and place them all into one place to experience your product or service. We screen and pick influencers and pickout businesses that will be presenting to them. Presenting products or services can be done via Stage Time and thru the Businesses’ respective booths.

Step 2: Influential Bloggers and Online Influencers blog / post / tweet about the Freebies / Event / Networking with Businesses and influence their readers / visitors

Bloggers will receive a giveaway or promotional item from each Business to be able to review it. The main idea is to have them really experience something to ensure they are able to write about it honestly. Bloggers usually blog about the event (with mentions on sponsors and key highlights), as well as, the reviews that they do for each product / service they receive.

I am super excited because this is going to be my first time attending this much awaited event for bloggers. I've been hearing a lot of bloggers talk about their experiences from the past Blogapalooza events and I can't wait to be there to witness what Blogapalooza has in store for a newbie blogger like me.

For those who are interested to get an exclusive invite to this year's Blogapalooza and would like to know more about this event, check out their Website and sign up (both for bloggers and businesses). Event is on October 25, 2015 from 10am to 9pm at One Esplanade, SM Central Business Park, Seaside corner Bay Boulevard, Pasay City.

See you there! :)
