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..?
