Frequently Asked Questions
Where is it?
The fabulous Altitude 360° in the Milllbank Tower, London SW1P 4QP.
The nearest tubes are Pimlico or Westminster. For more information, see our Location page.
Which sessions can I attend?
Some sessions will be programmed so that all delegates can attend, others will be offered as breakouts for delegates to choose from. Once you've booked your place, we'll ask you to select which sessions you would like to attend.
See our Programme page for a full list of sessions.
What if I want to change which sessions I attend?
We'll do our very best to make a space for you at whichever session you would like to attend.
What if I want to see two sessions that are scheduled against each other?
We've tried to ensure that there is as much choice as possible for delegates. If we anticipate that some sessions will be in high demand, we'll be running them twice. The experts in the Blog Clinic will be on hand to fill in any gaps, if you miss a particular Blogging Lowdown session which interests you.
When I can speak to the experts in the Blog Clinic?
Some will be on hand to answer questions throughout the day, others will be available in the lunch and coffee breaks. We'll have a BIG noticeboard at BlogFest to let you know of their availability - this should help you to schedule your day.
Is there internet access?
Yes, there is wifi access throughout the building.
Is the venue wheelchair accessible?
Yes, it's fully wheelchair accessible. There's also an induction loop which can provide hearing assistance to hearing-aid users.
Will there be childcare?
Unfortunately we are not able to provide a crèche, but babes in arms will be welcome within the main conference, and a comfy area will be provided for breastfeeding. There will also be topnotch babychange facilities.
How much will it cost?
From October 1st, tickets cost £75 - Tickets are now sold out.
Why should I attend?
For so many reasons! To hear great speakers, meet other bloggers, get spot-on advice on making the most of your blog - from cracking panellists and one-to-one in The Bloggers' Clinic. The list is endless!
Can I have a refund if I can't go?
As the event date is so close, we're afraid we can't issue refunds if you're no longer able to attend. Do feel free to start a thread in Mumsnet Bloggers Talk if you'd like to offer your tickets to other bloggers - you may well find one who's keen to help you out!
Will there be brands there?
BlogFest is sponsored by a select group of brands who will have a presence at the event. If a representative from a brand wishes to attend the event, they can purchase a brand delegate ticket by adding the promo code BrandTicket on the booking page.
I want to go, but I don't know any other bloggers going...
Don't be afraid of being a wallflower - Mumsnet staff will be there for a friendly chat. There will be plenty of opportunity to meet other bloggers at the sessions and during lunch and coffee breaks, plus the drinks at the end of the day will be a great opportunity to download and share experiences with other delegates. We're working on other ideas of how to hook up like-minded bloggers, so if you'd be interested in hearing more about this, let us know on this BlogFest Talk thread.
Can I be sponsored to attend?
Yes. You can seek sponsorship from a company to cover your ticket price, but Mumsnet can't help you do this. The sponsored relationship is between you – the blogger – and your sponsor. Your personal delegate sponsorship should not be confused with the official sponsorship of Mumsnet BlogFest. Only BlogFest official sponsors will have representation and stands at the event.
As a sponsored blogger you can:
- Be your sponsor's 'blogger on the ground' at the event
- Promote your relationship with your sponsor on your blog
- Promote your relationship with your sponsor through your own social media channel
But unfortunately, you won't be able to:
- Hand out marketing material on behalf of your sponsor at the event. This opportunity is only available to official event sponsors
- Host an event on behalf of your sponsor within the venue
If you've got any questions that aren't answered here, don't hesitate to ask us! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your queries. You can also discuss BlogFest with other Mumsnet Bloggers on our Talk thread.
