Glitterati Plus Bloggers’ Meet up – Event coverage

It was a interesting and fun day on the 30th of January 2011 for some of the Nuffnangers. BECAUSE… It was the day of our Glitterati Plus Bloggers Meetup!

And they all got to participate in fun games and activities, and met some of our popular bloggers and learnt blogging tips from them!

Despite the heavy rain and the unsheltered location, we had a good turnout rate! And what’s better than having fun and enjoying the delicious food provided? Of course, it’s to join the Glitterati Plus, an exclusive club which bands together a group of active and enthusiastic Nuffnang bloggers who love attending events, always active and participating in blogging contests and love meeting new friends.

On the day of event, we had our registration table set up, welcoming bloggers. We were worried at first due to the bad weather, but it seemed like it wasn’t affecting our enthusiastic bloggers from coming to our event! :) Ushers and Goodie bags all prepared!

And of course, we had to start off the event with ice-breaking game! All of the bloggers were teamed up in groups of 5-6 people and they had to complete 5 tasks on the tasklist given, with Polaroids taken. What’s better is, the top 3 teams will win a Starbucks $10 loyalty card for each member!

And one of the tasks was to pose with their Limited Edition Jipaban Red Packets given in the goodie bags.

And our Nuffnang staff with the Polaroid camera, going around to take polaroids for the groups.

And after 15 minutes, we had our  top 3 winning teams went on stage to introduce themselves and receive their prizes from Boss Ming!

We hope everybody had fun during the ice-breaking game, and made many new friends! This is what this event about, for bloggers to get together and get to know more about each other right?

And after the ice-breaking game, we had a short presentation done by Amanda, our Community Manager of Nuffnang. We want to grow our Glitterati Plus family and the event was a great opportunity for bloggers who love to attend events, always passionate and enthusiastic about blogging and meeting light-minded blogger friends, to join our exclusive club.

The response was so good that almost all of the attendees signed up for it! Thank you Nuffnangers!

Next up, we had an election for our Glitterati Plus’ President and Vice-President positions. And the nominated candidates are our regulars at events and contests! They are Hong Peng, William, Joanna, Thiang and Janessa.

Everyone had a voting form to cast their votes for the best candidate for the positions. And we had our ‘future leaders’ to share about how they can take Glitterati Plus to a greater height.

And we shall keep you in suspense for the time being. The President and Vice-President would be revealed at the end of this post! :)

And it was time to mingle around to get some food and drinks prepared for our guests!

What bloggers do best? Photos before digging in!!!

And our Nuffnang staff, taking a break from all the hard work.

After the short lunch break, we had our popular bloggers up on stage to share some blogging tips with everyone.
