Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness. What a day.
After months of planning, prepping and a little bit of stressing, everything came together to culminate in a wonderful event on Saturday afternoon. The #CTMeetUp was just so much fun.
But it wouldn’t have been the success it was without every single one of the 50 ladies (and one gent) that joined us on the day, without you it wouldn’t have been nearly as much fun! To see a detailed list of who was there and who to stalk in the future, just click here. Also to Ronel and her team from Rain Africa, Jenny from Zomato and Melissa from Zana. Without all of you the #CTMeetUp would have really sucked.
(By the way – if you weren’t there but want to be the first to know about the next one pop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will add you to the mailing list for the next #CTMeetUp in the new year).
We had such a lovely time at the Italian Kitchen Newlands. The Dean Street venue is just perfect for events like this – chilled vibe, friendly staff and yummy food. Thank you for all your hard work on the day guys!
Even though the main aim (for me) for these events, is for bloggers to connect and get to know one another while taking away some food for thought, we are also very spoiled by some awesome brands. Just like last year, we were absolutely blown away with our sponsors and how they supported us. We’ll be enjoying supporting them right back.
