The Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMA’s) are coming to Vancouver and we need some bloggers to help capture the events of this star-studded evening. I will be in the exclusive, invitation-only Gift Lounge at GM Place on September 13th thanks to the Uptown Giftbox Company and I’m looking for a small group of bloggers to join me.
As the official producer of this backstage party Gabrielle Durning, the driving force behind this West Coast company, has created the hottest ticket in town. The selected bloggers will have access to the lounge where there will be food, entertainment, on-site services, and tons of swag. There is a long list of VIP invites for artists, musicians (like Reba McEntire, Martina McBride and the Awards host Jason Priestley) and media that will be stopping by as well. Bloggers will be stationed in the gift lounge to live blog, take photos, Tweet, and share the experience through social media.
The best part is that once the ceremonies wrap up, each blogger will be able to leave with their own Uptown Giftbox prize pack which they can donate to the approved charity of their choice.
So far this year I have liveblogged everything from the opera to the Juno Awards so this should be another exciting event to be a part of — and I can even give a little bit back to a local cause while I’m at it. The one and only Erica Ehm will also be the official host of the Lounge and I was lucky enough to hang out with her for a bit at a Tweetup a few months ago.
To be considered for one of the Uptown CCMA Blogger Lounge positions, you simply need to write a blog post on your own site mentioning this offer. Please link back here to ensure we can see your entry and also include a link to Uptown Giftbox who will be running the gift lounge. We’ll select the team for the CCMA Blogger Lounge on Wednesday September 9th.
Update: The bloggers who will join me in the lounge are Heather, Erin, Kristi, Cole, and Stimuli e-Mag.
