BlogaFest 2019: A Reunion of Bloggers and Influencers From Around the Philippines

One of the reasons I was excited to join this year’s BlogaFest was to meet my fellow bloggers from different provinces in the Philippines. I have become friends with quite a lot of regional bloggers I met during events and familiarization tours. It feels great to meet people of the same interest and talk about traveling and blogging.

Aside from the blogger friends, I was also excited to meet the BlogaMom behind Blogapalooza, Ace Gapuz. I have been in contact with her through Facebook messenger and I wanted to meet her in person. Meeting her was one of the highlights of the trip. I really admire her for coming up with such a huge event. Thank you, Ace for partnering with DDI and for having us during BlogaFest – the Philippines’ first and largest business-to-influencer networking and marketing event.

During the event, I also learned bits and pieces about blogging and influencer marketing. There were different talks about relevant topics and it was nice to hear them from the industry’s experts. I had lots of learning and pondering.

Lastly, I also enjoyed the drinks served by Ginebra San Miguel. It was a nice experience to prepare Ginebra’s Calamansi Surprise cocktail. Something you should all try! 🙂

I would like to thank Cebu Pacific for flying us from Davao to Clark! Cebu Pacific operates daily between Davao and Clark. This is a good alternative for those going North like Baguio and Ilocos or for people who are looking for cheaper flights going to Manila.

I would also like to thank Nobu Hotel at the City of Dreams for an amazing stay during the BlogaFest. We enjoyed our stay at Nobu! Good food during breakfast and a very inviting swimming pool.

Nobu Hotel is a great choice when you want to stay in a luxurious hotel near Manila Airport!
