After the success of #BloggersBall and #BloggersFestival, Scarlett London Events is back with another exciting event - only this time, it's bigger and better than ever!
We’re so excited to be hosting the first ever London Blogging Convention, welcoming like-minded creators from all over the UK. With over 400 bloggers set to take our incredible venue by storm, we’ve got some super exciting activities planned – including appearances, workshops and talks by some of the UK’s most well known influencers. Whether you want to build your blogger network, connect with relevant brands for future collaborations, pick up tips on how to extend your social reach, listen to some inspiring talks by some incredible men and women who’ve made blogging their business – or just spend the afternoon having a chilled, fun time – we’ve made sure there’s something for everyone! We want to celebrate the successes of this amazing community of talented, passionate and driven bloggers!
As well as the brand exhibition with sampling stations, social media giveaways and plenty of activities, we're also introducing an 'Inspirational Women in Blogging' speech and workshop section, so you'll be able to listen to some of your favourite bloggers and influencers speak openly about how they've made blogging their business! Speaker names will be announced on our Twitter page (@ScarlettLEvents) so do keep an eye out! These talks won't be able to be booked in advance, but there's plenty running throughout the day - so make sure you note down what times the ones you'd like to listen to are on - and then you can pop back!
Drinks, snacks and plenty of blogger staples (cupcakes and pick n mix) will of course be available - as well as a few surprises!
Prepare to leave feeling inspired by the world of blogging!

We're really pleased to announce that our official charity partner for BlogCon is Ovarian Cancer Action, who are currently partaking in an awareness month, to counteract the fact that 90% of women in the UK don't know the symptoms of Ovarian Cancer. Talking about women's gynaecological health is a bit of a taboo, as there's a stigma attached to 'private areas', so it's even more important to raise awareness - and we feel honoured that they will be attending the event to do just this. Plus, with their research almost 30 years behind other cancer's, fundraising is vital - and we'll aim to raise as much on the day as we can. Please do bring along a little bit of money if you'd like to donate on the day, as they'll be running a few activities at the venue. Additionally, feel free to use the hashtag #OvaryAct to share your support or story. Thank you in advance!
There's a new addition to the event format this year - we're now offering mini masterclasses with some of our favourite influencers, bloggers and creators. There are no pre-registrations for these events, so make sure you head to the right area at the specified time to grab a seat!
