BlogOnX Weekend Post One
Flipping through all my pictures, I cannot believe the BlogOnX weekend is already over. All the work that goes on behind the scenes for month’s beforehand and then it seems to be over in the blink of an eye, the anti-climax is definitely being felt this week!
The BlogOnX weekend kicked off on the Saturday night with a fabulous party hosted by Paladone, located in Heaven. With that view over Manchester, it certainly was!
The tables were laid out with games, drinks, super yummy food was served, games tables offered tickets to win Paladone prizes and the mood was awesome. Everyone was ready for the next day and it was an awesome pre-starter as always.
As the designated driver and somewhat of a sober Sim these days, I was ecstatic with the fizzy Vimto on offer, the perfect soft drink to enjoy in the glorious weather on offer. I hope everyone enjoyed Manchester’s summer… in typical fashion we are due rain today!
Jen and I started the night off hosting games tables and we seriously had so much fun! It’s such a great ice-breaker, especially for first timers to the event and certainly gets everyone involved. The fact you could win tickets from playing the games, which could then be converted into prizes was simply an added bonus.
We were able to enjoy the games after our slot, clearly we were very determined to win some awesome Paladone goodies – thanks to Jen for capturing this moment whilst playing Champagne Pong! Fortunately played with water as opposed to the good stuff… that would have been a horrendous waste!
The sun was blazing down on Manchester throughout the BlogOnX Bank Holiday weekend and it meant we could enjoy Heaven, which is based at the top of Hotel Football with the retractable roof back. The space was fantastic as a party room and attendees of the party had lots of room to mill around and have fun.
Ten thirty was our cut off point, knowing we had to be back at the venue first thing to set up for our check in duties. We both left with smiles on our faces, as well as goodies that would put smiles on other faces. A huge thank you to Paladone who hosted the BlogOnX pre-party, you guys are awesome!
Next up is the BlogOnX conference post, so don’t forget to check back to find out what happened on the day!
