What time does it end?
Will there be food and drink available?
Can I bring treats to share amongst everyone?
I’m not on WordPress, can I still go?
Absolutely! Bloggers from any and all blogging platforms are welcome. And if you’re not on WordPress then please do share this event as we’d love to reach other platforms. You don’t just have to be from the UK to attend as we’ve had bloggers from all over the world attend previous events.
Can I bring a friend?
We would prefer that guests are bloggers but, if you want to bring someone to keep you company, you’re more than welcome. However, they must purchase a ticket to attend the event.
Should I bring anything with me?
Just yourself, maybe a business card or two to swap and a camera if you like photos.
What are the ABBAs?
The ABBAs are the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards.
You, the bloggers, nominate your favourite bloggers for the awards.
The nominees are then put to the vote, it is an open vote, voted for by you.
The award categories for 2019 will be announced soon.
Details of the voting rules etc will be posted nearer the time.
Why is there a charge for this year’s Bloggers Bash?
Tickets will be available from 1st January 2019!
Are places limited to attend?
Yes, so we recommend you buy your ticket early to avoid disappointment. Our venue capacity is limited so, once all the tickets have been sold, there won’t be any more.
I can’t make the Bash. Can I still join in remotely?
I can’t make it, but I’d like to know what happens.
We (the committee) will write up events from the day as well as post the results of the awards on the day too. The blogging and marketing presentations, plus the panel debate, will also be made available.
We’ll post a list of attendees before the day and, remember, you can follow on social media too.
I have a question I’d like to ask the Guest speakers or the panel.
Drop us a line if there’s something you’d like to ask. Although we can’t promise that everyone’s questions will get asked, we’ll do our best. You can email your questions to Annualbloggersbash(AT)yahoo(DOT)co(DOT)uk
We will post a list of confirmed attendees closer to the time so that you can follow them or introduce yourself.
Help! I can’t find the venue.
Fear not. If it is the day of the Bash and you can’t find the venue, we will (closer to the day) provide a number you can contact one of the committee on.
Sorry folks, but I can no longer come
It would be great if you could let us know as soon as possible if you can’t make it, as places are limited. Remember that tickets are non-refundable.
I’m camera shy, I don’t want to be filmed or photographed.
During the day we do film sections of the event and there are copious amounts of photos taken. If you don’t want to be in photos or films please let a member of the committee know on arrival.
