The Eat Drink Blog 4 (EDB4) organising committee is delighted to announce that the fifth Australian Food and Drinks Bloggers Conference — Eat Drink Blog 5 — will be held in Brisbane, Queensland.

Brisbane has not hosted the conference yet, so we are thrilled to hand over the torch to them and look forward to seeing what they come up with for Eat Drink Blog this year!

At this stage, Eat Drink Blog 5 will be held in September 2014, which is earlier than the previous three years as the international G20 Summit will occur in Brisbane in November.

Eat Drink Blog 5 follows Eat Drink Blog conferences held in Perth (EDB4 in 2013), Adelaide (EDB3 in 2012), Sydney (EDB2 in 2011) and Melbourne (EDB1 in 2010).

The organising committee for Eat Drink Blog 5 is comprised of bloggers from a range of backgrounds and fields of expertise, and will be chaired by Aga from A Matter of Taste.  Other confirmed committee members are Anthony from Food Me Up Scotty, Corrie from Brisbane Devoured, Heather from The Love of Food and May King from MayKing Tea.

The organising committee will also have a support team comprising of Fiona from TIFFIN bite sized food adventures, Jess from Brisbane Belly Blogger, Kelly from Eating My Way Through Life, Melissa from Melissa Loh and Jessalyn from Feed Me Now.

“Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland, the Sunshine State. But Brisbane is more than pineapples and sunscreen! It’s a River City, sitting in a bend of the mighty Brisbane River. Flanked by South Bank and Fortitude Valley, Brisbane has a thriving food scene. Farmers Markets, hatted restaurants, bars and clubs as well as food and cultural festivals, subtropical Brisbane has a lot to offer the visiting bon vivant.” says Aga.

Each year Eat Drink Blog is managed by a different organising committee from the host state. Last year’s conference was organised by Ai-Ling from Food Endeavours of the Blue Apocalypse (Chair), Matt from Abstract Gourmet, Bri  from Eatmeetswest, David from Food Blarg and Chris from Bon Viveur.

The Eat Drink Blog 4 Committee will be handing over to the new Eat Drink Blog 5 committee over the next couple of weeks.
