Have you ever wondered what it takes to become the next big fashion or beauty blogger? Well, Spark Sessions may have the answer. The first-ever fashion and beauty conference in Canada is coming to Toronto this weekend at the Centre for Social Innovation.
Featuring top players in the industry (including guest speakers Jeanne Beker and Elaine Liu aka LaineyGossip), Spark Sessions is a great way for bloggers to network with top brands, PR pros and fellow bloggers.
Over the course of two days, bloggers in attendance will learn everything from pitching content to editors to building brand awareness to getting scouted by top PR companies. And in case you automatically assume a conference is all keynote speakers, you’re wrong. There’s also a clothing/product swap, “speed dating” with brands such as Almay, Smart Set and Benefit Cosmetics, and an after-party with free drinks and manicures.
Here’s a run-down of what will happen during the conference:
