BloggerConf is the leading Irish conference for online influencers, brands, bloggers, vloggers and content creators. Digital PR leader Emma O'Farrell founded the conference to educate and inspire Ireland's digital natives through workshops, panel discussions, and networking opportunities.

The conference returned for its third year in the round room of the Mansion House on Saturday, 20th May. BBC Presenter and YouTuber Riyadh Khalaf flew in from London to MC while video storyteller Simeon Quarrie, fitness YouTuber Rob Lipsett, lifestyle blogger Cherry Sue, Instagram star Eimear Varian-Barry and more took to the stage as speakers.

RTÉ LifeStyle spoke to Emma O'Farrell to discuss the success of this year's conference as well as the future goals of the event. 

"BloggerConf 2017 was an incredible event, even for me as the organiser, I was pretty much blown away with the content, with the sense of community, it was quite magical and special in a way because we are hosting it for the first time in the mansion house."

Emma has big plans for her pet project and is beginning to look at where it stands on a European stage.

"I'm starting to think now that we could actually be quite a large conference in Europe. I've had several e-mails from Italy and France asking are we going to bring it abroad so it's really interesting for me to hear that, that there actually isn't anything like what we're doing in Europe right now."
