We at Zephyr Adventures, organizers of the first-ever Beer Bloggers Conference, admittedly did not know for sure how this first conference would take among bloggers. We had high hopes, given our success with previous Wine Blogger Conferences and Food Blogger Conferences. But the demographics of beer bloggers are different and the size of the community is much smaller.
Thus we are thrilled to have 103 people registered for this first conference, which takes place in less than two weeks in Boulder, Colorado. In fact, given our maximum bus capacity of 106 people for the two brewery dinners, we only have three open spots remaining.
Interestingly, we had a rash of 16 signups in the last 12 days. We know it takes planning and saving to join this type of conference and these latest 16 probably just worked out their schedules or their finances. We’re glad they will make it.
It is nice, too, that 85% of the attendees are bloggers (the rest are sponsors, speakers, organizers, or other participants) and most of the bloggers are Citizen Bloggers, those unaffiliated with a business. This will truly be the world’s first Beer Bloggers Conference and we are excited to meet everyone!
