Blogopolis 2013 was held last November 16, 2013 at Intercon Hotel in Makati. This is a yearly gathering of bloggers and social media practitioners and enthusiasts. This year’s theme is “#intotheworld”: Weaving Information for Leaders of the Digital World“. Our country’s top blogging and social media influencers have contributed their insights and expertise the attendee’s brain picking.

For a digital marketing company here in the Philippines, it is important for us to take part in this yearly event. We have had the honor of taking part of Blogopolis 2012 by utilizing LetsTrendIt (Our Social Media RFID-based event management solution) to manage the event and help it trend in social media. This year, team was fortunate enough to be invited to attend Blogopolis 2013 by the Nuffnang team. It’s quite different this year since we now have more time to digest the speaker’s thoughts, and interact with the participants all the fun bunch called “Nuffies”!
