2015 Blogger Bash Recap #BBNYC 

30 Jul

Blogger Bash came and went so fast if I had to  do it all again I would. July 16,17, two days of meeting new people, seeing friends, taking notes, networking and just doing what I love doing. 

This was the best one yet. I loved the location at Pier 60, Chelsea Piers NYC. Everything looked absolutely stunning and held just the right amount of people without it being overcrowded. 

There were so many exhibitors I can’t even begin to mention them all but it was great meeting all of them and seeing the ones I already knew.

The first day started with a Share Your Care Brunch. Of course it wouldn’t be a brunch if Care Bear wasn’t there. Brunch was delicious and we also got to take pics with Care Bear. I am also happy to say I am officially a Care Bear Ambassador. How cool is that? 

After brunch The Blue Man Group gave an exclusive performance for BBNYC attendees at Astor Place Theater. I chose to skip only because I want to experience this with my family first. I heard it was great and can’t wait for us to see. 

Sweet Suite was the final adventure of the afternoon. With over 80 toy and game sponsors I couldn’t wait to play with toys and see what’s in store this year. It was packed and I tested out so many toys and just had a fabulous time. The food and drinks were off the chain. After having fun inside my friends and I went on the outside deck to take in the views and take pics. It ended at 9 p.m.. 

Day 2: If you’re a Disney Infinity fan then you should have been at the Disney Infinity breakfast not just for the amazing food but you could have been one of the first to play Disney Infinity’s latest installment Disney Infinity 3.0, which features new Star Wars toys and gameplay. We took home two Disney Infinty 3.0 characters. 

Speaker sessions, Speaker panels and Brand speed dating were available throughout the day. Bloganthropy Awards which recognizes and honors bloggers who use their social media influence to support charitable causes which I think is wonderful was held at Blogger Bash. 

Baby Palooza was up next with baby photographer Anne Geddes. Tons of baby products were on deck to check out. 

The Peanuts Keynote Lunch was one of my favorites. Blogger Bash sure knows how to spoil us with all the delicious food they had. Cast members from the Peanuts were there to talk about the characters they played, how much fun they had and how they were picked. They were so cute and very funny. My kids and I can’t wait for this movie. Snoopy himself made an appearance and we took home fun swag form The Peanuts. 

Rite Aid sponsored a fantastic Recharge Lounge overlooking the Hudson River at BBNYC. Everyone were able to relax and recharge while learning about Rite Aid and their cool initiatives, products, and services. Loved all the products they gave out. Especially loved the Chocolate Pecan Clusters. 

Rene Syler spoke at the Brand New You event about health and wellness. Rene is deep and doesn’t let anything stop her. She’s been through a lot but she’s a go-getter. I love her inspiring words. 

Teleflora, the world’s leading flower delivery service, served as the official flower sponsor of BBNYC! Teleflora’s beautiful floral arrangements was on display throughout both days. 

Last event of the night was the Canadian Lentils Closing Carnival. Upon entering I noticed the game booths where I immediately tested my skills and won a few prizes. There were jugglers, magicians, a lady hanging from a chandelier upside down serving you champagne. Band, dancers, tall guy on stilts  and on and on. The food was made with none other than Lentils. Cupcakes with lentil, hamburgers,, pretzels, even the ice cream which was the best thing for me. I didn’t think I would like it but it was good. Loved the photo booth and all the acts. 

Until next year! It’s been a blast. 

Disclosure: I was given a ticket to attend. Opinions are mine 100% as always.
