This weekend we’ll be packing up the family and heading to Charlotte, NC for Reviewers Retreat. What’s that you ask? Reviewer’s Retreat, hosted by Double Duty Divas, is the first of it’s kind blogging conference, geared specifically toward the issues and challenges faced by bloggers in the product review genre. We enjoy sharing some product review with you, so we’re looking forward to learning how to maximize our review opportunities and give you the quality feedback you deserve.
Reviewers Retreat is being held at Great Wolf Lodge in Charlotte, NC which is only a few hours from us. The whole gang is going this time, because Great Wolf Lodge has a lot of amazing activities for kids including the largest indoor water park in the United States, an arcade and miniature golf. I can’t believe this place is so close and we didn’t know it existed before now!
There are some great sessions lined up for both the beginner and experienced product reviewer. We are really looking forward to hearing our good friend Meagan from Sunshine and Sippy Cups speak. Fellow Georgia moms and bloggers Stacie H. Connerty of The Divine Miss Mommy and Piera Jolly of Jolly Mom will also be speaking at the event.
Connecting Brands & Bloggers
There will be a Sponsor Speedway set up allowing a bit of time for brands and bloggers to get acquainted with each other during 5-6 minute sessions. Laura and I are hoping to make some great first impressions! There will be some fantastic brands there to connect with such as Pampers, PlaySkool, Musselman’s, Discovery Place and many, many more. We’ve even made a Ride and Drive appointment with Kia to check out the Kia Optima Hybrid!
A special thanks to our sponsor Wines by Wives, a celebrity wine club, for helping to make the Reviewers Retreat 2012 conference possible for us!
