Feria Yucatán Xmatkuil 2010

While you are planning your trip to attend the Latin American Bloggers Conference, add in a few extra days - Why?, well there really are so many things to do and see. 

One really fun event is the Feria Yucatán Xmatkuil 2010 which will be taking place November 12 through December 5.  Read more about the feria here,

Public transport from Centro (Calle 69 entre 58 y 60) will make the trip quick and easy, and pretty darn cheap at 6pesos each way.
Entry was 12pesos in 2009 (if I remember correctly...)


Previous Conferences, in the beginning

The first annual Latin American Blogger's Conference was held on Isla Mujeres. Here is a list of just a few posts generated by that historic meeting.

Wayne of Isla Mujeres: Gringo in Paradise got the ball rolling and hosted the 1st Latin American Blogger's Meet up. So let's start at his blog. He does a great job of chronicling the meeting, starting with Blogger Meeting, the beginning, followed by The Fun Just Keeps On Coming and ending with Saturday Night's Alright. Wayne takes great photos, check them out!

Heather in Paradise wrote Bloggers Behaving Badly Part 1 and Part 2.

Kelly from A Canuck in Cancun posted And a good time was had by all, which pretty much sums it up.


3rd Annual Latin American Blogger's Conference

Mark your calendars! The Third Annual Latin American Bloggers’ Conference will be held in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico from Friday Nov. 12 – Sunday Nov. 14, 2010. The event is open to all Bloggers but in order for us to get ready, it will be necessary for you to pre-register.

Stay tuned… in the next few weeks, we’ll create a form and post it.

This year our venue will be a downtown college campus (http://tttac.com/) that comes with wireless Internet, garden space, and lecture hall.

The activities will start on Friday evening, November 12th with a Cocktail-Social to Meet & Greet your fellow Bloggers.

On Saturday, November 13th we will have a full day of conferences/talks/workshops… lunch, more topics, and more opportunities to eat. Some of the ideas we have are:

· Identifying and keeping your blog’s Focus

· Adding Photos – Uploading, effectiveness and continuity

· Using you Blog to market your product / service / whatever

· A Beginner’s blogging class

· Advanced HTML techniques

Do these topics interest you? Do you have other suggestions? Would you like to do a presentation for your fellow bloggers? Do let us know because we want this conference to be as good as it can be.

Saturday will also provide an evening opportunity to see some of Merida’s clubs and bistros… There are a number to choose from.

We’ll say goodbye with a Sunday morning breakfast, unless you decide to stay and enjoy Merida for a few extra days.

Please email and let us know if you want to come and join us. Please invite other bloggers you know and by all means, post this information on your blog. We hope to have as many Latin American Bloggers attend the conference as possible. The more the merrier!

In a few weeks, we will be compiling a short list of hotels, restaurants and other places of interest located close to the conference site.
