Bloggers United AU Brisbane Event

0Z5A0058b
Sunday 29th of May 2016 saw Bloggers United AU host our very first Brisbane event at The Fox Hotel in South Brisbane.

With great demand, we did it again. Another full house of 35 bloggers, making us yet again another sellout event.

A beautiful sunny Sunday saw bloggers coming far and wide to attend, even a blogger travelling up to 2 hours just to be with us… dedication or what?!

Our selected venue: The Fox Hotel, made for an easily accessible location for all. With an array of function rooms to choice from at The Fox Hotel, we choose the spacious Acadia Room. The Acadia Room was made for our marketplace setting event, with ample space to have both our networking areas and brand presentations.

Brisbane had a sensational response to brands flying in from other states and with also having a good local support from Brisbane based brands to be in attendance at our event to meet the bloggers in person.  Brands in attendance were ready to dazzle our bloggers; both with a presentation in front of the bloggers and through the marketplace where each brand could display their products for a more intimate one on one setting where you can get to know the brands and products better, have a play and of course take many photos.

Major shout outs go out to our attending brands on the day: Kiehls, LeRouge Beauty, Create Your Cosmetics, Julisa, BioDerma/NUXE, Enbacci, Beautynext Australia (theBalm, Sleek Makeup, NYX and Barry M), Boe Professional/Premium Spa, Social Stylings, RosehipPLUS and Natura Siberica, Weleda, Dr Hauschka, Jexon Cosmetics and The Healthy Mummy.

Special mention also goes out to our contributing brands. Some of whom unfortunately couldn’t attend on the day but were super keen to get involved and be in front of the bloggers through generous gifting for each attendee to take home in their goodie bags: Vani-T, Elucent Skincare, Weleda, Anathoth Farm, Waxaway, Blinc Cosmetics, Faby Australia, L’Oreal Paris, Dr Hauschka, Colour Theory/Beauty Theory, Cetaphil, RosehipPLUS, Natura Siberica, Enbacci, Premium Spa, Boe Professional, Sleek Makeup, theBalm, NYX, Barry M, Skin Therapy, Vaseline, The Daily Grind Body Scrub, Andrea, So..? Fragrance, The Healthy Mummy, BioDerma, The Good Green Box, Kiehls, Jexon Cosmetics, Lottie London, Nip + Fab, The Makeup Box Shop, Le Rouge Beauty, Maybelline, Julisa, Well Naturally, Pilot Frixon Pens, NUXE, Viraprox and Bitchinskin.

With thanks also going out to Urban Rituelle and Malouf Pharmacies for prize donations.

Bloggers United Goodie Bag Ingrid from Fabulous and Fun Life @fabulousandfunlife

As if all the above presentations, networking and product sampling were not enough, at the end of the day all the brands present, as well as brands who’d been unable to make it on the day, gifted us with generous goodie bags of products. Thank you so much to all the brands and PRs involved!”                           Read Ingrid’s post here.

Rachel from Rachel Beauty Style @rachelbeautystyle

Words cannot describe just how excited (and nervous) I was for this day! I had been counting down and talking about it for months and when the day finally came, I almost couldn’t handle it!”                         Read Caz’s post here.

Every person I spoke to couldn’t stop talking about how much they were enjoying the day, everyone was mingling and networking so well, I met so many people that previously had only existed in an online capacity, and made new friends that I may not have discovered otherwise! The day was such a feel good event and everyone left with a smile…”                                                           Read Sarah’s post here.
