#NCWine Bloggers Summit

2020 #NCWine Bloggers Virtual Summit

Virtual Summit Announced!

The third annual #NCWine Bloggers Summit will be held virtually on Monday July 20! 

As previously stated, our theme this year is “Tell Your Story”.  We think this works well for wineries and bloggers alike as we all have interesting and important backstories that motivate us. 

Registration is now open.  Use the links below to purchase tickets to the event. 

COVID-19 Impact

As you know, we originally planned this event for late March.  Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to postpone that event and hold this virtually.  Since the costs associated with having a virtual event are much lower than a physical event, we decided that charging the same amount for a ticket price is not the best solution. 

In our earlier emails, we mentioned that all previously purchased tickets would be honored for the new date.  Unfortunately our previous ticketing agent was unable to carry over the tickets to the new event and a new ticket will need to be purchased.  Due to these complications, we have decided to change ticketing agents to Eventbrite.

If you have already requested a refund from Brown Paper Ticket, please know that we are working with them to push through your refund requests.  If there are any issues, we will be handling the refunds directly as soon as they close out the previous event.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us directly.

Virtual Meeting Details

The meeting will be hosted on the Zoom platform. Since this is a virtual meeting, we are taking a few extra precautions to ensure the meeting goes on undisturbed.

  • Meeting link will only be shared with registered attendees on the morning of the event
  • A “waiting room” will be enabled so that only registered attendees will be admitted. In order to be admitted to the main room your Zoom username must match the name you used to purchase your ticket (business names will be accepted).
  • A meeting code and meeting password will be required for all attendees.
  • Meeting encryption will be used during the event.
