There are so many reasons why South Beach is a great place to hold the second annual Blogalicious Weekend Conference that we decided to try and list them all, right here! Let's face it, between the possible celebrity sightings, to the fabulous restaurants, and beautiful beaches, South Beach is hot and sexy. Let's not forget the surrounding Miami neighborhoods that offer an eclectic mix of urban lifestyle living and traditional Latin flavors. I mean really, is there a better place to hold a conference? Not just any conference, but a Blogalicious conference.
We don't think so! And based on the standing ovation you guys gave us last year when we announced Miami as our next location, we think you all agree - Miami is it!
But aside from all the great things about Miami, how about all the great reasons why registering for Blogalicious before our early bird prices end on July 1st is a great idea?
When you combine the great things about Miami and the reasons why you have to register early, we've got our very own Top Ten list!
Here are the Top Ten Reasons to Register Early for Blogalicious 2010
1. When you watch the next episode of Basketball Wives, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you too, will have a chance to visit the same restaurants, boutiques, and hotel as Evelyn, Jennifer, Suzie, and the rest of the gals. You might even spot one of the gals since the second season was just picked up by VH1.
2. You'll save $65.00 on registration which equals two mango mojitos, a nice Cuban dinner, and Cuban dessert at a great South Beach restaurant.
3. You won't end up on the waiting list because Blogalicious 2010 WILL.sell.out. We've doubled attendance this year but passes are going fast.
4. You already booked your room at the Ritz, so go ahead and register!
5. The "I'm Going to Blogalicious" badge is not only a cute accessory to your blog, but another way to let everyone know you are going to hottest conference this year. Woot!
6. The early flamingo catches the Blogalicious worm. You'll start to get exclusive, attendee insider tips, news, and benefits so don't miss out!
7. Registering is already on your to-do list so register today and scratch that sucker off- done!
8. You don't want to spend your Blogalicious money on your summer vacation with the family, boyfriend, girlfriend, your dog, or whomever.
9. Will Smith said it best in 1998, "Bienviendo a Miami... [it's] the city that keeps the roof blazing!"
