Registration for the 2020 International Food Blogger Conference to be held November 12-15 in El Paso, Texas will open on March 1. Please mark your calendar or add your name and email address to the Stay Updated box on the IFBC website.
The cost of the conference depends on when you register and, if you are a blogger/media/influencer, whether you elect to write posts about conference sponsors for a discounted registration ticket.
General Registration Price
- Through March 31, 2020: $545
- Through June 30, 2020: $595
- Through October 31, 2020: $645
- After October 31, 2020: $695
Food bloggers, media, and social media influencers can choose to receive either a $150 or $300 discount off the above prices by agreeing to publish one or two blog posts, Instagram stories, or videos about a 2020 sponsor. You choose at the conference which sponsor (s) you wish to write about and we will then send your contact information and links to your posts to the sponsors. If you register and elect this option, you are committed to publishing the posts, stories, or videos.
We believe this is a win for both attendees and sponsors and is a successful new model for blogging conferences. Sponsors are guaranteed a certain amount of coverage in general but need to earn it at the conference. Attendees receive a discounted rate and get samples of their work in front of key brands. To receive the discount, you must have an active blog or social media account substantially focused on the food industry that was not created just for the conference.
If you must cancel your spot, you can transfer your registration to another person simply by notifying us or you can roll it over to 2021 if you notify us no later than October 28, 2020. Your fees are not refundable but this way you also don’t lose your investment. We do not have registrations for only part of the conference and you cannot share your registration with someone else.
Our conference venue and host hotel is the brand new (opening March 2020) Paso del Norte Hotel, the premier luxury hotel in El Paso. For more than 100 years, the tapestry of El Paso has been woven in, through and around the Hotel Paso del Norte. We have an excellent rate of only $149 and you can book your room at the group rate by clicking here. Book by Oct. 3, 2020 to secure the group rate.
