Sponsorship

We are seeking for your support so that more bloggers from all over Asia can join blogfest.asia. Help us make it happened!

As blogfest.asia is being organized by and for bloggers in the region with much anticipation and tremendous passion and interest, the reality is that there are many of them who would ONLY be able to attend with travel funding support. We are glad that various NPOs and international entities have generously started to offer help on this but, the more, the better.

The goal is simple — to accommodate at least 30 bloggers from east, south / south east, and west / central Asia. A simple guideline has been developed (see here, item #4). Your support will help us reach this goal, and make this event a meaningful, memorable and fun one.

As a reminder, we are not seeking for a high-amount contribution from one single entity, instead a wider participation from businesses and organizations across Asia who cares about what the bloggers say would better develop heathy and organic growth for the blogosphere in the region. Meeting like this usually creates platform for creative or cool idea that leads to something bigger for the future.
