Last month Navigate Media Group hosted our second BlogHouse event in Toronto with fantastic results. The enthusiasm, learning and publicity surrounding the event superseded that of our first BlogHouse in Besalú, Spain.
The event was attended by the majority of Navigate Media Group as well as 12 eager and promising bloggers hand selected from a pool of nearly 50 applicants. To read their first hand impressions from the Toronto BlogHouse click on the links below:
The project managers for the Toronto BlogHouse were Cailin O’Neil and Stephanie Yoder who worked with a variety of local and international organizations in the planning and execution of the event. Major contributors to the event included FlipKey and Flight Network as well as many local businesses in Toronto that supplied delicious food and great event spaces.
A catered lunch was provided by Seventh Heaven Event Catering. They provided the brains hard at work with various types of sandwiches, delicious salads and desserts, including drinks, plates, cutlery and everything we could need! Including special lunches for a few people with food allergies. We really appreciated the effort they put into making things just right.
We drooled over the Canadian Cheeses, mac n’ cheese and homemade pop at Cheesewerks.
One evening was spent socializing at Hard Rock at Dundas Square. The next night we held a networking event with key members of the travel industry joining us to help the newer bloggers get their networking jitters out. Chef Morgan at the Trios Bistro in the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel pulled out all the stops to make sure we were delightfully fed from the tastiest kale chips ever to delicious crab cakes, chicken wings, sliders, desserts and more.
And each night we relaxed with HopCity’s Barking Squirrel and Big Mouth beers. Quite refreshing.
Since the conclusion of the Toronto BlogHouse we’ve gotten a lot of questions about the location and timing of the next NMG Bloghouse. We’re working on something for the near future.
