Our most recent meet up took place in the stunning Glenlo Abbey Hotel on the 9th November 2014. The River Room was just such a spectacular venue for our Irish Blogger gathering. We enjoyed a drinks reception of Autumn Fruit Punch, Tea & Coffee & Homemade Cookies on arrival.
The afternoon was both educational and fun with a number of amazing speakers including Helen Mannion, Lifes2good (featuring their newest product Micronail), Ann Hallorn, In-tuition Learning & Development and Philip Gleeson, Quickest Fox Marketing. The line up was super and they shared their knowledge and expertise leaving us excited and motivated.
Lifes2good is an international natural healthcare company with its headquarters in Galway. Lifes2good manufactures, distribute and market natural health and beauty products through both retail and direct channels.
In-tuition Learning & Development connects with people who have built/are building their own online business and deliver training courses at a basic, intermediate and advanced level on SEO, Social Media, Web Building, Content Management and ECommerce.
Quickest Fox Marketing is the ring master for all the Twitter hours around Ireland - #galwayhour #donegalhour #corkhour . He spoke to us all about twitter and the do's and dont's of the twitter world. The #itwbnbloggers were definitely taking it all in as we were trending on twitter on the day as was the Glenlo Abbey Hotel too!
Later we enjoyed a light lunch with an amazing spread of Canapés, Mini sliders, Mini Pizza Bites and Spicy Potato Wedges. And what better way to finish off a fantastic day than to browse the rails of the super selection of pop-up shops.
The pop up shops were stunning and the bloggers picked up some amazing goodies! The shop owners were also able to have the chats with the bloggers too! In attendance was the lovely Cotton Face Vintage, Stella & Dot by Fiona Faherty Founding Stylist, PIA Galway featuring the fabulous new Millie Mackintosh collection, Little Pea Juices, The Galway Player signing his new book Shift & Drift, Michelle Melville signing her new book Oisín The Brave - Robot Island and the fab Sheneil Shoes too!
We had some fantastic sponsors there too, Glenlo Abbey Hotel | Castle Print | The Balm | Youngblood | Lifes2good | Flanagan's Pharmacy | Aurora Hair Products | Born Clothing. These fab companies worked with us and the bloggers closely and continue to do so.
Finally we would like to say a huge thank you to Margaret, Vicky and all the staff at the Glenlo Abbey Hotel for an amazing day, from the stunning setting to the amazing food we #itwbn Bloggers felt like Royals for the day.
