International Food Blogging Conference Starts Today In Santa Monica:

A conference for food bloggers begins today in Santa Monica, Nov. 11, which will continue through Sunday with guest speakers, networking opportunities, and plenty of food tastings.

The International Food Blogging Conference is organized by Foodista.com and Zephyr Adventures, which held the first-ever conference for food bloggers back in May of 2009 in Seattle.

The concept has grown in popularity so much that a second event was added this year, which was held Aug. 26 to 28 in New Orleans.

Organizer Allan Wright said about 180 bloggers would be part of the three-day conference.

“The International Food Blogger conference is for bloggers, people who write about food on the Internet,” Wright said. “It’s also for people who are interested to learn about writing about food on the Internet. There are hundreds of thousands of bloggers out there and there are over 10,000 food bloggers who write about food in any way they please on their own blogs.”

Wright said the first part of the conference focused on the improvement/education aspect of writing about food, the second part was about meeting other people who were doing the same thing, and the third part was to experience a lot of fantastic food and wine.

“People blog on their own at home and often they don’t have interactions in person with other bloggers,” he said. “This kind of conference allows people to do that.”

Among the highlights will be a Taste of Santa Monica reception on the Friday night with L.A. Weekly food writer Jonathan Gold. On Saturday night, Australian chef Michael Moore will speak while pairing food and wine.

All conference activities will be held at DoubleTree Suites Santa Monica located at 1707 Fourth Street, Santa Monica.
