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.
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 102 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope you find this list helpful AND…I hope to see you soon at one of these great conferences!
