If you did not grab a room, DO NOT PANIC!  One of the greatest benefits of our lovely venue is it being surrounded by several, nice and affordable hotels. We are working on one more block at Home2 (right across the parking lot). Please stay tuned for details.

We’ve listed other close hotels for your convenience.  Other neighboring hotels with very reasonable rates are still available. Don’t forget, our venue Davis Conference Center has FREE parking.

Pre-conference hands-on workshops and Speed Networking on May 1st: What workshops will be available?  Who will be teaching them?  What are the costs?

Stay tuned for details!

Do I need to sign up for general class sessions May 2nd-4th? 

Conference guests DO NOT need to sign up for general (May 2nd-4th) sessions in advance. We recommend carefully perusing the schedule to plan out the courses you’d like to attend in advance. Once you arrive and collect your registration materials, you’ll also receive a schedule showing where the classes are held, so you’ll be able to get there early and grab a seat.

How can I apply to be a speaker? 

We love your initiative!  Please feel free to contact us here.

Also, speakers do get a complimentary ticket.  However, if you want to secure a ticket, we recommend getting your ticket right away. Speakers are carefully considered and announced at different times throughout the year. If you’re chosen as a speaker and already purchased a conference ticket, we will happily fully refund your ticket.

Do you have a Facebook group?

Yes… Come join us! You can request to join our Official Everything Food Facebook Group here.  It’s a great place to meet other attendees, find a roommate, and ask for advice.

How do I become a sponsor?

EFC has incredible sponsors! They see the value of influencer marketing and come to connect and collaborate with our impressive attendees in order to make business deals. If you think your company would be a great fit,  please email kami@foodbloggingconference.com

How do I volunteer for EFC?

Our volunteers are an essential part of Everything Food.  We could not host and organize our conference without you!  We are still organizing our volunteer needs and schedule.  Please subscribe to our volunteer email list HERE and we will be in touch no later than 90 days prior to the conference.

I’m not a sponsor, but my company wants to host a dinner, party, or private event during the conference. Is that okay?

I’m sorry, but this is strongly prohibited.  This would be considered Suitcasing and Outboarding.  Suitcasing is an unethical business practice in which companies gain access to an event and then solicit business during the conference. Outboarding is when a company that should be a sponsor of an event instead decides to host their own competing event without the consent of the original event organizer.

Everything Food does not allow Suitcasing, Outboarding or Partial Outboarding where a brand or agency hosts any event, function, training, seminar, focus group or other any other activity that competes with Everything Food.

For further clarification, please email emily@foodbloggingconference.com.

What is the recommended dress code for EFC?

We want attendees to look and feel their best, and we love to see the variety of incredible personal style! Business or business casual are recommended for each day of the conference, but we strongly suggest particularly nice attire on Thursday and Friday when visiting sponsor booths. Dress to impress since these meetings are similar to job interviews with potential partners!

Be sure to check the weather forecast and pack accordingly. We also suggest pants and a jacket, as it will get cooler in the evenings, and don’t forget some comfortable shoes!

What have previous attendees said about Everything Food?

Bjork Ostrom - Everything Food ConferenceBjork Ostrom from Food Blogger Pro says, “I’ve heard countless stories of bloggers and online business owners who share stories about conferences being the catalyst for their business growth. And it makes sense! As a business owner, it’s massively important to continually learn and develop, and one of the best ways to do that is attending a conference. If you’re building a food related online business then EFC is one of the best conferences you can attend. It’s a central place to connect with peers, learn from industry experts, and meet brands. You owe it to yourself to make time for EFC!”

 

Brooke Lark says, “Everything Food Conference is the single most important food blogging & food photography gathering of the year. The best bloggers, the biggest names. It is the place to see and be seen. Hands down, the most effective 3-day event you’ll ever attend. Vital for keeping on the pulse of current skills related to the world of blogging, social media and building a personal food brand. Every year, there are lots of conferences. Everything Food is the only one I always attend, because it is ALWAYS a warm, welcoming, life-changing, biz-building event. One you don’t want to miss.”

 

Sally cropped - Everything Food ConferenceSally McKenney Quinn from Sally’s Baking Addiction says, “The vast amount of information and inspiration, including all of the incredibly well-prepared, entertaining, thought-provoking, and enlightening presentations and sessions makes the trip across country to the Everything Food Conference completely worth it. Not only this, the friendships made, the networking, and conversations with bloggers and sponsors are paramount to growing both your reputation and your brand. I look forward to this conference every year!”

 

Amanda Rettke - Everything Food ConferenceAmanda Rettke from I Am Baker says, “People keep asking me what conference I have liked the most and where they should go in the future and I kept saying EFC! It’s one of the few conferences that I enjoy ATTENDING… you have such great speakers for all levels of bloggers. SO much inspiration. So thank you!! I’m a fan.”

 

 

Carrian cropped - Everything Food ConferenceCarrian Cheney from Oh Sweet Basil says, “EFC ended up being much more than I expected! It’s all about connections. Connecting with yourself and who you want to be as a blogger. Connecting with others who totally get you, the business, and all the craziness. Connecting with essential information to take you onward and upward. AND connecting with brands ready to work with you and inspire your readers in new, creative ways. It literally was everything!”

 

 

Yvonne cropped - Everything Food ConferenceYvonne Feld from Tried and Tasty says, “I attended both EFC 2016 and 2017.  After attending both conferences, I can say with full confidence they did not disappoint. The classes were great, the speakers were excellent, time spent socializing with sponsors was invaluable, and obviously the fun I had with my friends was just the best! Kami worked her tail off and it showed. EFC is a great compilation of many things that have been missing from conferences for foodies. Excited to see what 2018 has to offer!”
