2013 ProBlogger Training Event: To Be Held on the Gold Coast in Queensland

Today I’m excited to share news about the location and some other previously secret details of the new Aussie ProBlogger Training Day.

Over the last 3 years we’ve held a live blogging conference here in Melbourne that has grown both in attendee numbers but also impact each year.

The feedback from last year’s event was amazing. While there was room to improve in a few areas our team began to stress out a little as we read the feedback surveys at the end of the 2 days because the response was so positive we didn’t know if we could top it in 2013.

As a result we decided we needed to do something big to shake things up and today I am excited (and a little nervous) to announce that we’re taking PBEVENT on the road for the first time and are holding it at the QT Gold Coast in Queensland Australia.

I’ve just posted about the move on the ProBlogger Events blog where you can read more about the plans for the event but I wanted to mention it here on the ProBlogger blog too.

Great Blogger Training and Amazing Experiences of the Gold Coast!

Our ProBlogger Training Events are unashamedly packed with information for bloggers that will help them to grow their blogs (and to make them more profitable). Our 2013 event will be no different.

I’m already talking with a number of international and Aussie speakers about coming along and am excited by how that component of the conference is shaping up.

If you come you’ll return home with a head full of information, inspiration and ideas for your blog.

However this year we’re adding a new component to the event. Working with Queensland Tourism and Events we’ll be offering attendees the opportunity to have some ‘Pop-Up Experiences’ on the Gold Coast both before and after our event.

The event itself is being held on 13-14 September but on the day before and days after we’ll offer some experiences that show off the region. They’ll include opportunities for pampering, adventure, fun and a little indulgence. They’ll be fun, give you an opportunity to meet other bloggers but also hopefully give you some experiences to write about on your blog.

Stay tuned for more information on what these pop-up experiences will be and how you can apply to be involved.

International Guests Welcome

Moving our event to Queensland also makes this conference a little more accessible to international guests. Last year we had attendees come Asia and a number of US readers seriously considered making the trip – this year the flights are shorter and we hope by offering the pop-up experiences before and after that we can tempt you to come along (and perhaps stay a little longer for a vacation).

There’s some exciting things happening in the Aussie blogosphere at the moment so coming to be a part of our event will hopefully give you some fresh perspective and inspiration for your blogging – wherever you are. Plus, us Aussies love to play host and I’m sure you’ll have a great time.

  2. Every time I see images of Australia I think about Steve Irwin who I once saw dive out of a helicopter into the ocean and swim with freaking crocodiles.

    Relax folks he did that off the coast of Africa so you’re safe for Darren’s event.

    PS

    If you’re reading this and you want to do something awesome send me two round trip tickets to AUS so I can check this thing out.
