    TECHmunch is a food blogger/media and marketing conference created to help 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 creating great content, building buzz, working with brands, growing an audience and profiting from their hard work.

    TECHmunch has a grassroots style and fast-paced format that’s focused entirely on providing useful information… while having fun in the process.

    TECHmunch was launched in 2010 by BakeSpace.com Founder Babette Pepaj. As founder of 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 established and aspiring food bloggers,  as well as the brands that want to reach them.

    The first TECHmunch was held in March 2010 in Austin, Texas — concurrent with the annual SXSWi (South by Southwest Interactive) Conference. In the years since it has been held in cities across North America, with new cities added regularly.

    Launched in 2006 as the Web’s first food social network, BakeSpace has grown to become a diversified online media, app publishing and conference production company for people who are passionate about cooking and the culinary lifestyle. The BakeSpace.com online community has been described by USA Today as “the closest thing to a Facebook-like food site,” and has earned numerous Webby Award honors including back-to-back nominations for “Best Social Network.” The company’s ‘Cookbook Cafe‘ publishing platform is the first do-it-yourself digital publishing tool that enables anyone to create, market and sell a cookbook as both a native iPad app and a web-based eBook. Cookbook Cafe has earned Webby and IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) honors for best mobile app and outstanding use of new technology.
