World Food Championships offers interactive, insider access for food bloggers

NASHVILLE, Tenn., July 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Food bloggers seeking high-octane fun and the latest in blogging trends will be packing their bags for an action-packed visit to Las Vegas. Registration is now open for FoodFightWrite, a new interactive blogger conference, held Wednesday, Nov. 12, to Sunday, Nov. 16, 2014, in tandem with the World Food Championships.

Only in Las Vegas can food, fame and fortune be combined into one jackpot event. The 2014 World Food Championships will feature nearly 500 of the world's best cooks and chefs, pitting "joes" and "pros" on an equal playing field to battle it out for hundreds of thousands of dollars and the coveted title of the World Food Champion. Beginning on July 10, "World Food Championships" will air as a six-episode series on the A+E Networks' new FYI Network.

As the biggest food competition in the world and the only event of its kind, the World Food Championships will provide a fun and interactive backdrop for the FoodFightWrite blogger conference with unique access to some of the best cooks and chefs and biggest brands on the planet.

"With all of the access and assets we have at the World Food Championships, developing an opportunity to engage food bloggers was a natural fit," said Mike McCloud, president of the World Food Championships. "Our event provides the perfect opportunity for talented bloggers and foodies from across the globe to share their collective passion for food, cooking and entertaining.  Bloggers will be at the epicenter of the fun, meeting chefs and food competitors, and taking in all the sights, smells and sounds."

The FoodFightWrite blogger conference will be limited to 300 bloggers from around the country who are looking for that next bite of a new trend.  Bloggers will choose from multi-track programming that includes interactive instruction, demonstrations, product reviews, social events, breakout sessions, and engagement with WFC competitors, judges and brands.

"This is not your typical ho-hum conference.  In addition to a full slate of educational sessions and networking with brands, bloggers will be embedded in all the excitement surrounding the epic WFC competition," said Beth Peterson, 2013 World Recipe Champion and founder of Yummie Nation. "It's a high energy experience for bloggers who want to step outside their comfort zone and take in some exclusive food experiences under the sunny Vegas skies."

FoodFightWrite topics will range from search engine optimization, building your blog, growing your base, vlogging, video production, social media techniques, writing prompts, monetization, photography, food styling, working with brands, recipe development, food media, and PR. The conference cost is discounted at $249 per person until September 1.  Regular price thereafter is $349 per person.   FoodFightWrite will be held at The Plaza Hotel in downtown Las Vegas.  For more information on registration and accommodations, visit
