More than 200 bloggers from all over the Visayan Region, as well as bloggers from Luzon and Mindanao are expected to attend these two events. After the VBS and the blog awards, the delegates will be treated to a day-long sightseeing tour of Iloilo in November 28th.

The VBS & PBA Visayas will be the very first event of its kind to be hosted here in Iloilo. Big names from the blogging community will be arriving to deliver talk during the Summit.

“The goal of the VBS is to gather ideas and explore the potential impact of blogging on society, business and politics , while the Philippine Blog Awards – Visayas, on the other hand, aims to recognize notable Visayan-owned and Visayan-related blogs in their respective niches. ” adds Junelle Caravana, the Iloilo Bloggers Organization’s Vice President.

The Visayas Blogging summit and the Philippine Blog Awards – Visayas is expected to be the biggest gathering of bloggers in the Visayas Region.
