Welcome to BlogVille 2018!

Today iambassador is proud to announce the return of BlogVille for 2018! It will be BlogVille’s seventh year and as with every edition, 2018 will see bloggers come to the Italian region of Emilia Romagna to experience the area like a local. This edition of BlogVille will be a bit different in that there will be two different periods for bloggers and influencers to visit, one in summer and one in autumn. Both the summer and autumn time periods will see bloggers be based in the capital of Emilia Romagna, Bologna. Having a base in the centre of Bologna will allow bloggers to experience city life – which is rich in history, culture and good food – but also explore the surrounding countryside and other towns and cities. For more information about the apartment bloggers will stay in this year, please check out the BlogVille website.

The official dates for the campaign

• Bologna, Emilia Romagna: Monday 4th June – Monday 25th June, 2018

More information about BlogVille

BlogVille was launched in 2012 by the region of Emilia Romagna in partnership with two members of the iambassador team, Melvin Boecher and Kash Bhattacharya. Since then, the BlogVille concept has grown in leaps and bounds, proving its worth by generating top-quality content and reaching millions of travellers worldwide. In 2013 the project opened its doors to the Republic of San Marino, which since then plays an active role in the campaign together with Emilia Romagna. In 2014, the project saw the inclusion of another Italian destination, the Lombardia region, with an apartment available for bloggers in Milan. In 2017 the partnership was extended to include the Austrian region of Tirol and featured both a winter and summer edition for the first time. Over the years BlogVille has won several awards including the Innovative Initiative Award at the Social Media Tourism Symposium 2014 in Rovaniemi (FIN), and the Best Travel 2.0 Innovation award at 2012 World Travel Market in London (UK).
2018 will see BlogVille return to its original award-winning concept of giving bloggers a comfortable base in Bologna from which to explore the city and the region.
The aim of BlogVille is to provide bloggers with accommodation and some support to discover their own stories about a destination. Supported by iambassador and local representatives from Emilia Romagna Tourist Board, there will also be several opportunities for influencers and bloggers to explore Bologna and the area both independently and on organised trips. All bloggers will also have the option to create a customised itinerary to find things in Emilia Romagna that are aligned with their interests and niche, meaning that there is also freedom and time to explore at your own pace. A blogger’s BlogVille trip reflects their interests, niche and preferred way to travel, as opposed to a classic blog or press trip.
