Dear Indonesian bloggers,
We are very happy to announce the BlogFest Asia 2012. The regional gathering will take place this year in Siem Reap, Cambodia from November 1st to 5th. It is organized by Cambodian bloggers (http://2012.blogfest.asia/blogfest-organizers). We also have a team of volunteers who will help us with arranging your travels within Siem Reap.
BlogFestAsia has been organized twice in Hong Kong and Malaysia in order for technologists, bloggers, social media enthusiasts and tech lovers in the region to come, share, learn and exchange information related to technology development in the region.
Visit our website (http://2012.blogfest.asia) for background information on the purpose of our gathering. More information will be provided very soon.
Please register now: http://2012.blogfest.asia/registration-form. The organizers here would like to provide accommodation as well as meals to participants, but participants or speakers should be able to cover their own air tickets from their home country to Siem Reap.
However, if you need an invitation letter to find sponsorship for your travel, please shoot us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Over the next few days and weeks, we will be adding the complete program, adding speakers’ bios and a list of attendees. Please do keep coming back to the site http://2012.blogfest.asia for blog posts, commentaries from blogfest partipants as well as updates of travel funds as we’re seeking for sponsorship from different companies and institutes to sponsor you as well. We cannot promise, but we’re trying our best. This can only be informed to you after you register.
So far, the BlogFestAsia 2012 has been made possible thanks to the very generous support of the US Embassy, the Asia Foundation and several individuals. We hope to hear from other potential sponsors by mid October.Thank you!
