Marking its fourth consecutive year, NEPA BlogCon, the region’s only blogging and social media conference, will be held on Saturday, September 12, 2015. This year brings a new venue but a continuing tradition of serving our community.
Having received overwhelmingly positive feedback from sold-out audiences in past years, NEPA BlogCon will make its return this fall at East Stroudsburg University.
With easy accessibility and a convenient location in the Pocono Mountains,, East Stroudsburg University is approximately one-quarter mile from the East Stroudsburg exit off Interstate Route 80, exit 308, within easy reach of major highway systems in the tri-state region.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
NEPA BlogCon is designed to bring together bloggers of all experience levels, as well as those interested in marketing, social media, creativity, leadership, and branding. It’s also an excellent event for marketers, small business owners, non-profit organizations and students.
NEPA BlogCon draws a wide range of local, regional, and international talent, with past speakers including radical self-love champion and top fashion blogger Gala Darling, branding expert Shenee Howard of Hey Shenne! Brand Chemistry, entrepreneur Kris Jones of KBJ Capital, and internationally-acclaimed blogger and non-profit founder, Shane Burcaw of Laughing at My Nightmare.
Tickets are available for $15 and registration will open this summer at NEPABlogCon.com.
Once again, this year’s official media partner for NEPA BlogCon is WNEP-TV. Sponsorship opportunities for businesses and community organizations are still available. VisitNEPABlogCon.com for details.
ACCEPTING SPEAKER PROPOSALS
NEPA BlogCon will be accepting proposals for speaker presentations beginning May 9, 2015 and closing June 12, 2015. Speakers may submit their proposals for consideration at NEPABlogCon.com
ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY EFFORTS
Last year, NEPA BlogCon drew more than 150 local bloggers, technology influencers, students, and marketing professionals to Northeastern Pennsylvania, raising thousands of dollars to benefit the founding of Squirrel Girls Tech Camp, a technology camp for girls in grade 4-6.
Squirrel Girls Tech Camp will launch in July 2015 at Lackawanna College.
NEPA BlogCon is unique in that all proceeds go to benefit non-profit and community education projects. It is organized by volunteers and could not be held without the support of sponsors, local businesses, attendees, and community leaders.
Since the event originated in 2012, the amount raised for charity totals more than $7500, with beneficiaries including Blue Chip Farms Animal Refuge, NEPA Veterans Multicare Alliance, and The Arc of Luzerne County.
All proceeds from this year’s conference will again be applied to Squirrel Girls Tech Camp.
Like NEPA BlogCon, the STEM education camp will be held in collaboration with sponsor organization, TecBridge, a regional collegial organization that collaboratively strives to create and embrace entrepreneurial opportunities with the purpose of growing technology and biotechnology wealth within Northeastern Pennsylvania.
