GBS is the brainchild of Kathryn Mansur and Sarah Ruhlman, both of whom are blog experts and together felt there was a need for a conference aimed at all bloggers and social media lovers that encompasses the content, social aspects and other valuable information.
This 2 day event is from Friday August 1 – Saturday Aug 2, with a pre-event mingle on Thursday Aug 1. The event will be at historic Hotel Phillips in downtown Kansas City. Why Kansas City? Not only is it the location where both Kathryn and Sarah reside it is also considered the “Silicone Prairie,” making it an ideal location to grow small business and is nationally recognized for their advancement in the tech and social arena.
The event hosts a plethora of talented bloggers from a varied of locations (see speaker list), as well as several networking sessions designed to get bloggers connected.
I look forward to the event and will be posting the daily event summaries, so stay tuned.
