At MP&F, we work closely with clients who benefit from having a blogger/influencer strategy in their communications plans. These clients include, but are not limited to, Kirkland’s, The Hermitage, Renaissance Nashville Hotel and Opry Mills. ‘Blogger’ has become a permanent tab on many of our media lists, and we are always searching for new ways to work with this influential group of digital media contributors.

Recently, we helped Opry Mills host a successful blogger summit with bloggers from ‘drive markets,’ –markets close enough for shoppers to drive to Opry Mills but outside the immediate vicinity. Our wonderful guests came to Music City and stayed at Gaylord Opryland Resort, where they sampled food and drinks at Opry Mills, were entertained at Madame Tussauds and the Grand Ole Opry, and listened to panel discussions led by our team of MP&F staffers.

Check out some photos below of the summit – work hard, play harder, right?
