Belmont, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2014
This year, BlogHer, Inc., the premium cross-platform media network and publisher for women, brought its tenth anniversary celebration conference home to Silicon Valley, taking over the San Jose Convention Center from July 24-26. Two hundred speakers and more than 100 sponsoring brands joined 2,500 influencers for three days of networking, high-profile keynote sessions, cutting-edge conversation, and celebration of ten years of the BlogHer community.
The City of San Jose disclosed the tremendous value BlogHer brought the local economy, selling 3,200 hotel rooms and generating an additional $2.3 million dollars for the local economy. In addition, BlogHer touted its economic impact on its community, also known as “the BlogHer Economy.” Over the past five years, BlogHer has paid $36 million to nearly 6,000 members of the BlogHer community for their work.
“We want to celebrate every attendee who joined the conversation this year, representing our community and network of publishers who reach an audience of 100 million each month. Their breadth and influence make BlogHer the perfect place to gain visibility and exposure,” said Elisa Camahort Page, Jory Des Jardins, and Lisa Stone, BlogHer co-founders. “We all owe a debt of gratitude to our Diamond Partner, Skype, as well as our other lead sponsors, Hairfinity, McDonald’s, The Mrs., Bridgestone, Count Us, Know Us, Join Us, Lysol and Pets Add Life, who joined 100 other sponsors to create a fantastic event that was affordable for our audience of independent publishers and small business owners.”
