Happening on the same day, Thunderbird Resorts is also the host of this year’s Bloggers Fest – an activity-filled day that includes seminars and workshops with expected attendees of about 200 bloggers from various categories. Azrael Coladilla explains on manilabloggers.blogspot.com, “The objective of the event is to have a venue for free mentorship on blogging and as well as networking with Filipino bloggers and participating companies.”
“Inspired from last year’s Bloggers Fiesta Manila, the Bloggers Fest features co-bloggers to serve as speakers on different topics and to share their experiences and give tutorials on how to have a successful blog site,” Coladilla added.
Thunderbird Resorts’ thrust is to create extraordinary experiences for its guests, giving them a luxurious vacation lifestyle with each stay. It holds two world-class properties here in the Philippines catering to leisure, sports, recreation and entertainment activities. One is located in the highland oasis of Binangonan, Rizal; the other Mediterranean-inspired property is in the peninsula of Poro Point in San Fernando, La Union. Through the online video contest and bloggers event, Thunderbird Resorts shares this Extraordinary experience and more.
