Top Blogging Conferences In Canada And The United States

Posted by


If you are a blogger, or someone who works in social media, chances are you attend at least one blogger or social media conference a year devoted to developing your knowledge and skills to help take you to the next level. Maybe it’s all the opportunities for networking, or the “in real life” interaction with your peers, that attracts you to these conferences. Whatever the reason, blogging and social media conferences are must-attend events for bloggers!

I have been lucky to be able to attend a few conferences over the last couple of years, each one providing me with great experiences and resources that have helped me in my quest to make this blog bigger and better.

BConnected Conference – BDigital. BInfluential. BConnected.

In 2016 you’ll find me behind the scenes again as Social Media Director for the BConnected Conference taking place in Toronto on April 22-23, 2017. In its fourth year, the BConnected Conference is back, and I am excited to be helping organize, and attending, such a great blogging conference!

I love the fact that there are so many terrific blogging and social media conferences throughout Canada and the United States. Each one offers its own unique sessions, ideas and agendas. Attendees always take away something new from each and every one!

Go-To Resource For Blogging And Social Media Conferences

When looking for a specific conference recently, I noted that there didn’t seem to be anywhere that listed ALL the blogging and social media conferences across Canada and the United States – in one place – that would be of interest to my fellow bloggers.

So I have created a comprehensive list; a go-to resource for 97 Canadian and American blogging and social media conferences.

Please note: Descriptions were taken from conference websites. If your conference is NOT on this list, and you would like to be added, email me at 

Hope you find this list helpful AND…I hope to see you soon at one of these great conferences!

    I knew about BlogPaws (just won an award there actually) but not the others. I struggle as a 6 year blogger in that I am not a pro … but lots of these have a singularly “beginners” vibe to them OR they are too advanced leaving those of us in the middle struggling. And since I blog about travelling internationally with a small dog I am caught between “pet blogger” versus “travel blogger”.

    • July 2, 2016


      Wow! Congrats on your award, Sonja! Yes, many have a beginners vibe to them, however, many are more advanced like you say. Personally, I get something out of every conference I attend. Even if you went with a more advanced conference, you would probably learn a lot. When it comes to being stuck in the middle of niches, I say do both if you can! Attend something like BlogPaws and also a conference more geared towards travel blogging. Thanks so much for stopping by, Sonja!

    Thank you for this list! I’m a newbie blogger and this is just what I need to learn more. There is not much conferences here in Singapore except for the TBEX so I’m thinking why not mix travel/lifestyle conferences and actually travelling!

    • December 28, 2015


      You are so welcome, Carla! Glad you enjoyed the list 🙂 Yes, definitely go to TBEX. It’s a great conference and it will give you a chance to experience one near you. Thanks for reading!
