#BlogHerFood16 Sponsor Event Sign-ups

BlogHer Original Post

We are just a few weeks away from seeing you all in Austin! We've got opportunities aplenty for you to eat, learn, and connect with your favorite brands and bloggers, and today we're excited to announce some very special events from a few of our sponsors.

What are sponsored special events? These are smaller, more intimate events that take place at #BlogHerFood16, They allow sponsors to connect with attendees to talk about product launches, new services, social issues, or just plain informally network and have fun.

At #BlogHerFood16, every sponsored special event has room for open RSVPs, but space is limited, so we have a first-come, first-served process ... with a twist.


BlogHerFood16 sponsor sign-ups


Just like last year and at our annual conferences, we're opening up our special sponsor events in phases and on different days. There will be a morning phase and an evening phase, so if you aren't at your computer when an event opens in the morning, you will still have a chance to put your name in the hat during the evening phase.

It may seem a little complicated, but we found this process to be the best way to give a fair chance to sign up for as many attendees as we possibly can!

The following events will open up for sign-ups Today, Tuesday, September 13, at 11 AM PT (2 PM ET) and then again tomorrow, Wednesday, September 14, at 6 PM PT (9PM ET).

And now, here are the events (they are not live yet, so you cannot register until the times above) and brief descriptions.
