Top 5 Things I loved about Blissdom Canada

This past weekend I was in Toronto at two social media conferences. I stopped briefly at ShesConnected conference and then headed over to the main event............BlissDom Canada! I have so much information swirling around my head at the moment and have been thinking about how I want to write them down. I have decided I will likely do a couple posts and this one will be the Top 5 things I loved about BlissDom Canada '12. I know there are likely tons more things. I may add to it as I think of them.
  1. Connecting with old and new friends! 
  2. Connecting with great brands
  3. Eating a kick a@@ breakfast at Caplansky's Delicatessen 
  4. A short walk through historic Kensington market
  5. Meeting Lucy Waverman & Emma Waverman 
This years BlissDom Canada was a little different than what it was last year. Instead of the panels that we would attend we were asked to pick three microsession that we would be interested in attending. These microsessions went for the morning and in the afternoon on Saturday we sat in on a great line up of BlissDom Canada speakers. And this year there were many great sponsors to network with and I know I missed some that I was really looking forward to stopping by to say hi. Just not enough time to see everyone and I apologizes if I missed you.

I met many amazing people this weekend and look forward to growing these friendships. Two people I spent a lot of time getting to know over the weekend was Nolie from Nolie's Place and Cheryl from The Beautiful Side of Hectic, if you have a moment check out their blogs and facebook pages. They really are amazing women!
 

Saturday night was the famous Blissdom Canada Costume Party. With fabulous costumes by everyone, yummy eats and even a surprise visit by Andy Kim who sings the famous song Sugar Sugar.
Sunday I spent the day on a FABULOUS excursion, a foodie excursion. I will be writing a whole separate post for this but we had the chance to check out Caplansky's Delicatessen, historic Kensington market, meet with Emma and Lucy Waverman and cook a soup on a whim at the Cuisinart Canada Soup cook off challenge.
I also want to say another HUGE Thank You to Field Agent Canada for a partial sponsorship to attend the conferences this year.
