“This year we are proud to welcome both returning and new top sponsors, creating a diverse mix of the most social media-savvy, consumer-focused brands,” said Samantha Skey, President and Chief Revenue Officer, SheKnows Media. “Our sponsors make this event possible for our community of top influencers, and they bring unique opportunities and activities along with their support of the community.”
Platinum and Gold Sponsors
#BlogHer16 welcomes two previously announced top sponsors: GoDaddy, which is aligned with SheKnows Media’s program for women small business owners, The Pitch: SMB Edition; and Merck for Mothers, which is sponsoring the Voices of the Year community keynote, hosted this year by Aisha Tyler.
Herbalife is a new top sponsor with several activations throughout the conference, starting with a booth at the expo with visits from their nutrition and fitness experts; a private and exclusive Herbalife Experience event at their national headquarters, conveniently located at L.A. LIVE; and hosting Saturday’s luncheon featuring Dr. John Agwunobi, Herbalife Chief Health and Nutrition Officer. Guests at the luncheon will have the opportunity to sample various shake flavors from the company’s Formula 1 product line.
Also new to the conference sponsorship lineup is Amazon Studios, which will be showing a screening of its upcoming original series “One Mississippi,” starring BlogHer ‘14 keynote speaker Tig Notaro, who is scheduled to make an in-person appearance.
Rounding out #BlogHer16’s top sponsors, Go RVing will demonstrate the allure of RV travel. Go RVing will bring two recreational vehicles onsite for a hands-on demonstration to help attendees learn how to choose the right RV, where to go and what to bring. Finally, Teva Pharmaceuticals’ More To Migraine will host a discussion on the impact of migraines, featuring a migraine expert, patients and advocates.
Other Featured Sponsor Activations
Eager to connect and build relationships with influencers who often become brand ambassadors or advocates, sponsors at every level provide fun experiences, useful services, celebrity appearances and deeply integrated activations for attendees to experience, learn from and enjoy. For example, in addition to Tig Notaro’s screening appearance, the #BlogHer16 Expo Hall will feature guest appearances from Freddie Prinze Jr. in the Best Buy booth, Sheryl Crow in the Hologic booth, and HGTV personality Sabrina Soto in the Velcro booth.
In addition, many sponsors are doing more intimate special events throughout the conference to make connections with interested influencers and forge potential ongoing relationships. These events also feature numerous guest appearances, from vegan chef Leslie Durso, to actors Lori Laughlin and Ian Ziering, to experts on nutrition, home interior design, and women’s leadership.
