Beer Blogger Conference sets dates for 2011 in London and Oregon.
Zephyr Adventures, organizer of the inaugural Beer Bloggers Conference in Boulder, Colorado, this year, just announced the official dates of two more conferences for 2011 – one in London, and the other in Portland, Oregon.
Here’s what the release said:
We are very pleased to announce the dates and locations of our two 2011 Beer Bloggers Conferences:
May 20-22: London, UK
August 19-21: Portland, Oregon
We hope to build on the success of our 2010 conference, which had 108 attendees this past November in Boulder, Colorado. While the London conference is designed to appeal to European beer bloggers and writers, we also hope it will attract bloggers from other geographies, including some intrepid traveling bloggers from North America.
Neither the Portland nor London conferences could exist without the support of our initial sponsors: Molson Coors (UK), Wells and Youngs, and Fuller’s in the UK and the Oregon Brewers Guild and BridgePort Brewing in Portland. These organizations make it possible to bring the Beer Bloggers Conference to you at extremely reasonable prices.
Registration is now open and space is limited due to our conference locations and the ability of our dinner hosts to accommodate large groups.
We will be in communication with beer bloggers across the world soon to gather input for the conference agenda, speakers, and other ideas.
Details are still being fleshed out, but the Oregon conference agenda so far includes a tour of hop fields, a pair of beer dinners and another “live beer blogging” session, in addition to the educational sessions during the day.The European Beer Bloggers Conference will include similar activities, as well as a London pub crawl, which sounds pretty fantastic to those of us on the other side of the pond.
I attended this year’s conference, and if you write about beer in any medium, especially online, I urge you to attend. It will be worth it. Stay tuned to the Beer Bloggers Conference website for updates.
