Yelp Orlando Rocks Central Florida BlogCon

Posted by Colleen Burns

Orlando just wrapped up their second annual Central Florida Blogger Conference and it blew last year out of the water. An entire day of networking, tip sharing and powerhouse presentations, created a memorable experience for all involved.

The brainchild of Bess Auer, this action packed, one day event draws in local bloggers and social media stars from all across Central Florida, Tampa, Jacksonville and Miami!

"This was a fantastic event! The collection of bloggers who came  from all over the state all gathered to learn and network and have fun!" - Katrina P

Yelp had the pleasure of being a main sponsor the first year and we continued the amazing partnership this year. We stepped it up and host of the networking after party. We took over Dino Digs in the Orlando Science Center with live music, tasty treats and luscious libations.

Evan Taylor Jones set the mood with tunes for all. This local boy strummed and swooned his way through this event and set a relaxing mood. For those who are into singer/songwriters, you don’t want to miss him live. Check out his full schedule here.

Cocktails Catering kept us cool and collected with various mixed drinks featuring the delicious, Tito’s Homemade Vodka! We also rocked some ice cold Redd’s Apple Ale which was light and refreshing.

Sushi 101 rocked their impressive catering set up with various rolls in addition to sushi rolling 101 tips and tricks! Qudoba impressed our herbivores with their delicious, flavorful veggie gumbo and Crave provided  pita and hummus canapé full of flavor. Sus Hi came in ninja uniforms and delivered an experience you can only find with this brand and their fabulous, talented chefs.
