We made it happen last year–now the Blog Squad is back for a second round of awesome bookish fun just for book bloggers! This fall, the Ontario Blog Squad will be bringing the book talk to Watermark Irish Pub for an entire Saturday afternoon. Special guests will be dropping in as well, and of course, we’ll also have some great prizes to give away to attendees.
Need more information? Have an FAQ!
Q. The event was free last year, so why are you charging for it this year?
A. The simple answer is the venue. One of the biggest concerns we heard from attendees last year was the event space. You wanted something bigger and better that provided more room to move about and mix and mingle. Well we heard you. This year we have a bigger and better venue and as such, there is a cost that goes along with it.
Q. What does the $35.00 ticket price include?
A. The $35.00 ticket price includes admission to the event, a three course meal, complimentary coffee or tea, and taxes and gratuity.
Q. Is there an official program of events?
A. While there are some things scheduled to take place at the event, there isn’t an official schedule like you would see at a professional conference. The meet-up is still very informal allowing attendees to mix and mingle freely.
Q. Will there be any special guests and if so, who are they?
A. Yes there will be special guests. But as for who they are, well that is a surprise. In the weeks leading up to event there will be some teasers and hints posted both here on the blog and on twitter. Make sure you are following @BlogOntario on twitter for all the latest news and updates on the event.
Q. Tickets are sold out and I want to go. What do I do?
A. If tickets for the event sell out, and you would still like to attend, please sign up for the waiting list through the ticket sales page. We will considering opening up more space at the event, but in order to do so, we need to know how many more spaces we would need to accommodate. In order to do that, we need you to sign up for the waiting list at: http://ontarioblogsquad2.eventbrite.ca/
I had SO much fun at last year’s event, both in organizing it and attending, and I’m so happy that we’ve been able to put another event together for the Ontario book bloggers. Hope to see you there in November!
