The Agenda


The event officially kicks off on Wednesday night with a cocktail hour for our VIP bloggers and speakers. Thursday is dedicated to our VIP bloggers. The day is packed with VIP level content and opportunities to network with other bloggers and speakers.

Day 1

All attendees can join us on Thursday night for the Opening Party. Friday will be a full day of sessions for both bloggers and brands. There are several panels on Friday, along with breakout sessions that take a deep dive on a specific area of your business. The Expo Hall will open at the end of the day on Thursday. 

Day 2

Saturday is dedicated to taking you "Beyond the Blog" with sessions about writing your own book, developing your own product or service, and more. The Expo Hall will be open all day so that you can meet with brands and discover more ways to monetize your influence.


Our 2018 event will be held at the historic Drake Hotel in Chicago. The hotel sits in one of the most interesting spots in Chicago with the bustling city on one side, and Lake Michigan on the other.
