As a team we like to mix things up and try new things so we have searched high and low all over Melbourne for the perfect venue to host the best meet up the blogging world has seen to date. We are pleased to announce that Pre-Blogopolis Drinks will be held in Melbourne’s very exclusive Match Bar + Grill from 7pm till late.
Match Bar + Grill is a world-class bar right in the heart of Melbourne. There’s nowhere else like it. Match Bar has disability access to the venue but unfortunately no public parking. Public transport would be the best way to travel with the closest stop just moments away at La Trobe.
We’ve never had to charge a door fee before and we tried our hardest to avoid it but the response to the event has been monumental, you have seriously blown us both away by how excited you all are about attending. Due to the sheer numbers we have to charge a $20 door fee to help us cover expenses. To make it up to you all we’ve done our best to provide a brilliant venue, yummy food so you wont starve and lots and lots of prizes… I mean LOTS!!!
We’ve been contacting our lovely friends in PR, asked for a few favours and managed to source over FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS in prizes just for attending!!! When you pay your door fee, pop your business card (or if you don’t have one you can fill out a blank one) into the draw to win one of 11 awesome prize packs. Think that’s not enough? Well for every person who attends they will receive a special code to receive a FREE Flickr Pro account for 12 months worth $24.95, that’s more than the door charge!
Drinks unfortunately wont be covered by us, you’ll have to fork over for that one. We tried our hardest to gain financial sponsorship to do so ourselves but alas we were unsuccessful. Instead we found a funky venue with realistic prices that reflected the quality of the service not to mention the quality of the drinks, after all drinks are what Match Bar do best! White wine starts from $7 a glass, $8 for red and sparkling. Cocktails start from $12 up to $25. Beers start at $7.50. They don’t sell energy drinks, juices and soft drinks are also available for purchase and water is free.
We will be serving up a selection of yummy gourmet pizzas (vegetarians will be catered for) but you’re also able to order separately from the rest of the menu if you wish to at your own expense. Snacks start from $8, Mains from $22 and Desserts from $11. See the Match Bar website for more information. Match Bar is pretty funky and I know you’re all sitting at your computers wondering what to wear. We’ll we’ve saved you the stress and Polly Dolly has come the rescue with a few outfit suggestion for all you guys and girls attending. The dress code is: Dress to Impress. It’s much better to be over dressed than under dressed but maybe leave the ballgowns at home.
Tickets are available to be purchased in advanced through Paypal. Please use the button found on the official Hello Blogger Events website. You don’t need a paypal account to pay, alternatively you can use your credit card through the same link. Entry can also be purchased with cash at the door on the night (please bring the right change) but so we’re chained to the door all night it would be great if you could give us more time to mingle with you all by paying beforehand. The cut off time for paypal payments is Sunday 24th July. Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any problems with payment.
We’re really excited to be meeting so many of you and proud that you’re all supporting our event, after all we’ve done it all for you guys! The Blogopolis Conference on Saturday, 30th July is set to be massive and a lot of fun but our Pre-Blogopolis Drinks… well, it’s going to get the whole party started!!!
