How To Be a Better Food Blogger When You Attend the 2017 Food Wine Conference

Updated: Jan 4, 2019

Rican Vegan Food and Wine Conference 2017

Disclaimer: I received a discounted ticket to the conference in exchange for promoting the 2017 Food Wine Conference.  All my opinions are my own.

Do you have any plans on May 19-21, 2017?  If not, then join me and countless other food bloggers in attending the 2017 Food Wine Conference taking place in sunny Orlando, FL.  The conference will be at the beautiful and luxurious Rosen Shingle Creek hotel.  It will be a weekend full of learning, making new friends, and of course lots of food and wine!

This year marks the 5th anniversary of the conference and my third year attending.  This year I am also excited to announce that I am a Brand Ambassador for the conference.

I attended my first Food Wine conference prior to launching my blog Rican Vegan.  I received so much valuable information, met incredible bloggers, and had the chance to taste delicious food that I’ve made it a yearly tradition to attend.  Every year I learn the latest trends in blogging, social media, and marketing.

This conference is necessary to attend if you are an established blogger or just starting out.  It’s an opportunity to connect with brands and other bloggers who share the same interests as you and learn from their experiences.  The atmosphere is vibrant and everyone is excited to be attending and noshing on all of the delicious food that is available.


The Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel is one of the most lavish hotels I’ve ever stayed in.  The hotel has several restaurants on the property that serves delectable food prepared by the finest chefs.  Don’t worry about deciding on which restaurant to eat at first, on the first night of the conference you get to sample dishes from all of the restaurants at the Taste of Rosen Shingle Creek event.


This year’s sponsors include Sunday Supper, Family Foodie, Rosen Shingle Creek, Mann’s Fresh Vegetables, CK Mondavi, Florida Strawberry Growers Association, Idaho Potatoes, Florida Dairy Milk Farmers, Certified Angus Beef, Wish Farms, Fields Auto Group, and Tapa Toro.


This year’s lineup of speakers includes keynote speakers Peter Horst a global marketing executive, Ina Pinkney a chef and cookbook author, Amanda Rettke the mastermind behind the blog I Am A Baker, and many more.


This year’s sessions will cover topics on growing your brand, managing your time effectively, perfecting your smartphone photography and video skills, sharpening your writing, mastering Facebook Live, and growing your social media presence.
