We could not hold this conference and offer such an unbelievably low price to participants without the support of our sponsors and partners. Please take the time to read about them below. We will be adding more as the planning progresses!
- For sponsor information, please contact Reno Walsh at 888.758.8687 ext: 704 or email@example.com. In your email, please mention “Wine Bloggers Conference” as we also run other conferences.
- Interested in pouring your Red or White/Rosé wine at our Live Wine Blogging events during WBC18? Click here for more information and to register.
- 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.

The scholarship recipients are writers and content creators who are not affiliated with a winery or other company in the wine industry with a demonstrated financial need. Specific attention is paid to individuals who post regularly, have never attended the conference before and who might be students with a particular focus in wine. Qualified? Apply here.
