“It was a pleasure to sponsor the 2011 Plate2Page Weimar workshop in Weimar, Germany with Jeanne, Meeta and the team. The ladies were thoroughly professional and assisted us in promoting Irish food ingredients to foodies throughout Europe.”
International Communications Manager, Bord Bia
Plate to Page is the first workshop of its kind aimed primarily at food bloggers, writers and photographers. Our exclusive 2.5 day residential programmes cover basic and advanced food styling and photography as well as writing skills and voice through practical exercises such as cooking workshops, market visits and hands-on assignments. The workshops are led by four of Europe's most popular and respected food bloggers and freelance writers/photographers, each an experienced teacher and speaker with a wide and international following. The first workshop took place in Weimar, Germany, in May 2011 and sold out completely, with participants coming from Europe, Canada, the USA and South Africa. Similar success followed with our second workshop in Tuscany, Italy in October 2011, and the third in Somerset, England in May 2012. The workshop looks set to become a regular event.
Food blogging has become an international phenomenon and the authors of food blogs make excellent brand ambassadors. An integral part of the workshops is photographing and documenting food-related activities, and there is obvious potential for exposure for sponsored products, both on participants’ and instructors’ blogs. This potential has been recognised by the sponsors of the various Plate to Page workshops, including Bord Bia (the Irish Food Board), Wines of South Africa, OXO, Ergo Chef Knives, Prokit UK, Hotel Chocolat, Georges Larnicol, Zwilling J A Henckel, Bisol prosecco, Taste of Home, Gourmelli, Peppadew and many others.
We have a range of sponsorship packages available to suit all marketing budgets for the Tuscany workshop in October 2011. We believe that being a Plate to Page sponsor could offer a company a unique marketing opportunity, and we are always happy to discuss innovative ways of creating mutual benefit for ourselves and our sponsors.
