SoFabCon

#SoFabCon has been a vision of Collective Bias and the Social Fabric community for some time. The driving force behind what makes Collective Bias and our social shopper media campaigns successful  is the incomparable power of bloggers and their connections to their audiences. We knew that one day we’d find ourselves planning the ultimate educational experience for our SoFab community members. Along the way we’ve had scheduled conference calls to enhance interaction, we launched the SoFab U: where we taught online courses on ways to improve our blogger’s skills, and organized countless meet ups. The natural next step was to create a conference that brought brands and bloggers face to face and offered the chance for bloggers to truly hone in on raising their skill level in social shopper media. This conference is our SoFab community family reunions mixed with a supercharged educational conference atmosphere.
