BBB Blogger & Brand Mixer - London

  • Impact Hub Brixton (map)
Blogger event London

Join us on the 18th August in London for our Blogger & Brand Mixer! We are taking over both floors of Impact Hub Brixton from 12pm till 4pm for a relaxed afternoon of camaraderie and community with Black British bloggers, YouTubers and podcasters. Exchange ideas, share your journey and make new friends!

Get your business cards and 30 second pitches ready as we will also have a selection of brilliant businesses that serve the Black British community joining us on the day. You will have time to introduce yourself and your platform to brand reps, sample new products and build valuable connections.   

Bring a notepad and pen as we have a couple of speakers lined up to get you inspired for the next step in your journey. Refreshments will also be available and we have some fun surprises scheduled for the day. 

This will most likely be our last event for a while so we really hope to see you there! Tickets are £15. 20% discount applied at checkout for 3 or more tickets.  

 

SPEAKER LINEUP

We are shaking things up this year with an all male speaker line-up! We are aware that blogging is a female dominated industry and while we love that we wanted to highlight the men doing bits within the community. As well as our fab speakers, we will also be hosting a panel discussion with some of the brands attending to discuss how we can foster better blogger and brand relationships.
