Q3: How many days should I stay?

A3: The full BlogFest is 4 days. The first 2 days (Thursday and Friday) are filled with advanced blogging sessions mixed with a few fun celebrity workouts. The next 2 days (Saturday and Sunday) you can choose from any IDEA World Convention session you want. We recommend you stay all 4 days, but it’s really up to you!

Q4: How do I register for the IDEA World Convention sessions on Saturday and Sunday?

A4: After you register for BlogFest, you will receive an email with instructions on how to secure your spot in the IDEA World Convention sessions. Session selection goes live in February so you should receive your email then. You will also see a list of suggested sessions for bloggers for Saturday and Sunday that we think you would enjoy. If you do not receive the email to register for your sessions, please email knakai@ideafit.com.

Q6: What is the cancellation policy?

A6: Due to the limited spots available for the BlogFest event, the BlogFest cancellation policy states that if you cancel your BlogFest registration at any time, you will be charged a $50 administrative fee. During the registration process, you will be asked to provide your credit card information. You will not be charged on your credit card unless you cancel your registration or you fail to attend this event.

Q7: If a company sponsors me to come to the BlogFest, can they also have a booth at the conference?

A7: By sponsoring your attendance at an IDEA Convention, your sponsor gets whatever benefits you agree to provide to them. Sponsoring an individual IDEA Convention blogger directly is not equivalent to sponsoring the event itself, and therefore attendee sponsors are not eligible for any official sponsor benefits. Only official sponsors of the IDEA conference itself receive official sponsor benefits, including exhibit booths. If your sponsor would like to exhibit at the conference, please contact Kaitlyn Wiezel at kwiezel@ideafit.com.

Q8: Can I pass out materials at the event?

A8: Unsolicited materials such as sponsor swag, gifts, or literature may not be distributed within the conference space or the host hotel, directly or indirectly. Such materials will be removed if left lying on any surface within the conference space or hotel.

Q9 Can I host a private party for my sponsor?

A9: Should you wish to host a private party for your sponsor, your event must be held at a separate venue. All of the suites and meeting space within the conference space and hotel will be held for official conference events only.

Q10: So, what is permissible?

A10: We encourage bloggers to network, exchange business cards, information, or similar ways of exchanging blog URLs, social networking information, etc. Feel free to include your sponsor information on such materials. Just make sure that the sponsor information is on your own contact materials, rather than passing out sponsor specific materials. Bloggers should also feel free to wear sponsor clothing throughout the duration of the event.

Q12: What should I bring?

A12: Once on-site, you will want to make sure you have registration confirmation / picture ID, printed copy of sessions, water (bring a bottle and refill it at the water stations), snacks, sweatshirt (sometimes the rooms get a little cool, especially after some exercise), a yoga mat (if you plan on taking any yoga classes), notepad and a pen or pencil, and business cards for networking.

Q13: Are there places to change and/or shower between classes?

A13: Unfortunately, other than your hotel room, there are no shower facilities available to attendees in the convention center. Restroom facilities throughout the venue can be used for changing clothes, if needed.

Q14: Can I bring my child into the session rooms?
