We could not hold this conference and offer such an unbelievably low price to participants without the support of our sponsors. Please take the time to read about our sponsors below. We will be adding sponsors as the planning progresses!
- For sponsor information, please contact Reno Walsh at 406-580-5919 or firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please mention “Wine Bloggers Conference” as we also run other conferences.
- Once you have determined your preferred sponsorship level, you can register on our WBC Sponsor Registration Form.
- Please note we discourage events not included in the official agenda for a variety of reasons: they often are invite only, which is against the spirit of the WBC; if planned during the WBC they pull from our scheduled events; and they take advantage of the WBC’s gathered bloggers without supporting the conference itself. If you have an idea for an event before, during, or after the conference, please contact us to discuss sponsorship.
- If you would like to host a future Wine Bloggers Conference, please complete our Host Application.
