The Scene Around: Blogapalooza 2014

10/17/2014 11:16:38 PM

It was that time of the year once again as When In Manila, along with Our Awesome Planet, and principal sponsors Globe, Easy Taxi, and Chooks to Go, held the 2014 Blogapalooza – the biggest business to blogger event in the country.

It’s actually the second time I hit Blogapalooza, with the first one held almost a year ago also at the same venue. And after six months, I reunite with my friends from the team Powerhouse bloggers. Also, spotted at the event were the blogger I usually interact from Bloggers ng Pinas, Pinoy bloggers, and those who participate in comment exchange threads.

All I can perceive though is a lot of booths are actually providing a lot of giveaways. Seriously, a lot of us bloggers ended up having bunches or even baggage of goodies. And we’re thankful for that.
There are also a lot of amusing games.

And mascots. Wow, I thought they only exist for fastfood parties. But on an exhibit? Chooks-to-go actually had two, and Max’s had their own. And I think Maxicare also had one, too! I think that just the afternoon entertaining for kids.

The downside though, though I appreciate their music, was the scheduled gig for Climax. That would be better if a lot of people are already piling up the seats.

Another, some booths were up for giveaways. Though it’s not really a bad thing, but we’re here to know your products and services, the actual reason why we’re up to.

But still we’re thanking on what you’ve given us.

And they finished earlier than usual. I think when I checked my clock it’s just past 8:30 in the evening. Maybe because they only have few speakers. Yes, lesser than expected.

Overall, it’s still a much-worthy experience. Still, I would suggest this event for a lot of newcomers out there who want to be heard, socialized with a lot of businessmen and colleagues, and a bit of learning the ropes of dealing with them in a mere professional basis.
