New look, new team, wider focus for FunFest Influencer Summit 2017

The FunFest Influencer Summit is returning once again this September – but with some exciting changes.

FunFest, now in its third year, is the UK’s first family-friendly parent blogger conference and brand ambassador event. The conference and expo has grown to accommodate a broad spectrum of bloggers, vloggers, YouTubers and social media influencers, who are all key within the fast-changing world of media and communications.

2017 sees a larger programme of activity and an extended showcase of brands and entertainment properties exhibiting and getting involved.

The event keeps family at its heart and is still very much focused on parenting and children – but will look beyond toys and traditional children’s products to include video games, books, apps, tech, bikes, music, sports and more.

The team behind the event has changed too, with Mimram Media now co-organising FunFest in partnership with MI PR Global, resulting in an exciting portfolio of activity for influencers and a greater scope for brand collaboration.

The FunFest Influencer Summit returns to Whittlebury Hall Hotel & Spa, Northamptonshire on Saturday September 16th 2017 and comprises:

•       A conference programme designed to inspire, inform and educate aspiring influencers and bloggers

•       An opportunity for influencers to meet brands who are looking for new ambassadors and media partners

•       Networking opportunities with like-minded peers

•       Kids come free! After all, the event is all about fun!

•       The FunFest Blogger Summit is for all influencers, whether you’re a mum, dad or grandparent, a ‘traditional’ blogger, YouTuber – or if you want to be one!

In addition, those who travel to FunFest by train will be offered free transport from Milton Keynes Station to the venue, and back again.

“The influencers of today are as much likely to use YouTube, Twitch and Facebook Live as they are to present their media channels via the written blog.

And that’s why we’re ensuring that FunFest 2017 will better reflect all areas of social journalism,” said Mimram Media Director Lisa Carter.

“At the same time, we’ve widened the brand sectors covered at FunFest. Toys remain important, but FunFest 2017 will also include brands from the worlds of video games, books, musical instruments, tech and more – in essence, anything that your kids love doing – and that parenting influencers love writing or talking about.”

Ruth Leonard, Marketing Director at Co-Organiser MI PR Global, added: “FunFest has been a great success over the past two years, inspiring bloggers and providing brands with a fantastic opportunity to engage with these important influencers.

“We’re delighted to be working with Mimram Media on FunFest 2017 and to be taking the event to the next level.”
