The FoodFightWrite Bloggers Summit is scheduled to kick-off November 2-4 in Celebration, Florida, with a select group of invited food and travel bloggers in attendance. Sponsored by the World Food Championships, in conjunction with YummieNation, the Summit has attracted the attention of Bloggers from across the United States and from as far away as Mayanmar. Dawn Sabato (who also works at one of International Drive's attractions) will be in attendance.
“The FoodFightWrite Bloggers Summit is bringing skilled communicators together with representatives of leading food brands to explore together the future of the food industry,” said Mike McCloud, CEO of World Food Championships. “But the Summit is also exploring other hot food trends especially in the world of Food Sport.”
“It is nearly impossible to watch an evening of TV these days without running into a cut-throat kitchen, celebrity cook-off, or a recipe cooking show,” he said. “The topic is huge, the financial investment in food sport is huge and this year the FoodFightWrite! Bloggers Summit will learn about the world of food competitions.” McCloud noted that after spending some study time, the Bloggers will put their skills to the test, setting aside their keyboards and picking up spatulas as they enter the Kenmore Kitchen Arena to compete in the First Annual Bloggers Challenge.
“Just like any other Championships, the Bloggers can win not only bragging rights, but cash,” he said. Beth Peterson, CEO of YummieNation echoed the enthusiasm for the Challenge. “It will be really interesting to see how writers take what food brands have shared with them in terms of cooking tips, presentation strategies and even ideas for recipes and turn that into something edible with the pressure of limited time, new cooking equipment and appliances and the outdoor competition arena,” she said.
“But no Bloggers Summit would be complete without skill building in effective use of Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest and Twitter,” she said. “There will be places throughout the Summit where we work on effective photography, understanding when the sweet spots are to post on social media and other tools of the Blogger’s trade.”
Peterson noted that these skill-building sessions will take place in the context of the Summit’s sessions, allowing time for Bloggers to hone skills while learning new aspects of the food industry. “The Sponsors involved in the FoodFightWrite! Bloggers Summit have provided a wide array of opportunities for Bloggers to develop post ideas and capture photography,” she said.
