TECHmunch helps food bloggers in cities across the U.S. learn the skills they need to succeed and take their blogs to the next level. The intensive, hands-on format is designed to get attendees up-to-speed on all the latest tools and tactics for building buzz, improving SEO, growing their audience and profiting from their hard work.
While other food blogger conferences tend to focus on promoting food-related brands to attendees, TECHmunch has a grassroots style and fast-paced format that’s focused entirely on providing useful information… and having fun in the process.
TECHmunch was founded in 2010 by BakeSpace.com Founder Babette Pepaj. As the entrepreneur behind the Web’s first food-themed social network and recipe swap, Babette had attended more than her share of online industry conferences that simply failed to deliver practical, real-world information. TECHmunch was born out of her desire to create something inherently more valuable to both established and aspiring food bloggers.
The first TECHmunch was held in March 2010 in Austin, Texas — concurrent with the annual SXSWi (South by Southwest Interactive) Conference. The second TECHmunch was held the following June in New York City, and was an official partner at Internet Week 2010.

“Our goal is to give local food bloggers a fun, affordable conference where they get the ingredients they need to succeed. We focus on practical information that attendees can use immediately to take their blogs to the next level.”
