EDB 6 Full Program Announced!

EDB15 speakers


We know that we’ve kept you waiting for this and we are extremely grateful for your patience. So here is the full program for EDB6!  Your organising committee has been working their hardest to put together a program that is educational and informative for both experienced bloggers as well as those who are in the early stages of their blogging journey. We also wanted to bring a different style of learning to this event and also wanted to share our favourite foodie stops of Canberra with you. With this in mind, we hope we have managed to put together an experience, not just a conference. It’s a program that takes you around Canberra where you can learn on the go, meet and interact with people in the food industry, eat and drink the best things this city has to offer and network with your fellow bloggers whilst participating in fun and educational activities. Of course we have a great line up of speakers to educate and inspire you as well.


A huge thank you goes to our major sponsors HerCanberra for working around the clock to put this program together!




We hope you like what you see and please stay tuned as details on conference registration will be released in a few days.
