1st American and European Wine Bloggers Conferences

by Eve Resnick on June 11, 2008

in General

Thanks to the enthusiasm and dynamism of Joel Vincent and Robert McIntosh, from OpenWineConsortium, two Wine Bloggers Conferences are going to take place this year for the first time ever both in the US and in Europe.

Let’s go by chronological order. From August 29th to August 31st, the European Wine Bloggers Conference will take place in Logrono, Spain. The three days offer a balanced mix of work, wine tasting and networking. Let’s get together to think about our role. There are three main roundtables:

- Rating
- Wine Blog Writing
- Wine Blogging Standards and Monetisation

The three roundtables should help us define our work as bloggers, how to professionalize and monetize our work and reflect on rating. To have a preview of the contents of the three topics, read the first exchanges on them and discover the first list of the participants.

Let’s move to the US now. The American Wine Bloggers Conference is scheduled for Oct. 24th-26th in the heart of Sonoma, California. The goal of the conference is to gather wine bloggers from throughout North America and beyond to meet, learn, and share.

To learn more about those two conefernces, follow our live radio talkshow on Talkshoe, with all instructions to call in on newwineconsumer.com or to download the show.
