About #BRUNCHCLUB Events
#BRUNCHCLUB is a social group for bloggers & social media influencers based in New Zealand. We hold monthly brunches, primarily in Auckland, but periodically in Hamilton also. Previously they have occurred in Wellington, Palmerston North, and Christchurch. The group was started to create a place where bloggers could network outside commercial spaces like brand events & through agencies. We wanted to be by bloggers, for bloggers. We have been running events since 2014, with friendships and collaborations developing over delicious food. For more about the history of of our group, read this post
Our events are typically informal in nature, with no set agenda. It’s an opportunity for bloggers to get to know each other, and meet face to face with people they may have only interacted with online. Conversation flows on all sorts of topics, from specifics of google analytics to general discussions of things we’ve seen on social media. We have a wealth of knowledge about blogging, web design, photography, and social media amongst our group and everyone is happy to share what they know. If you have any burning questions, bring them along and we can discuss!
In addition to our monthly social brunches, we run workshops from time to time. These are usually named #laptopclub events. Previous #laptopclub events have been on topics such as search engine optimisation and photography. We have also done some fun activities as a group like a flower crown making class, and a wine tour of Waiheke Island.
