2018 Annual Conference in Chicago

September 27 – 29, 2018 | Chicago, IL

12th Annual Type-A Parent & Lifestyle Blogging Conference.

Who Attends This Event?

We had 300 attendees register for the event. They were primarily female entrepreneurs who have built thriving businesses based on their influential blogs and social media presence. Most are lifestyle bloggers who focus on the family, or topics related to their family life like food, travel, education, shopping and so on.

Is It Just for Parents?

Type-A is not exclusive to parents. The community started over a decade ago, comprised mostly of moms who had picked up blogging as a hobby while they raised their young children. Over time, our organization has grown along with our community who blog about a wide range of topics and lifestyles. We have recipe and food bloggers, travel bloggers, beauty and fashion bloggers, makers and craft bloggers, business bloggers, pet bloggers, home decor bloggers, and, of course, parenting bloggers.

What Makes Type-A Special?

Type-A is well-known for its strong content. While other blogging events are known for the "swag", the awards, or the exclusivity - Type-A is known for the business of blogging. Our speaking roster is filled with over 50 professional practitioners - not motivational speakers or reality TV stars. At Type-A you'll learn from real people who built successful businesses by trying and failing.


The agenda is packed with actionable content from 50+ specialists, pros, and experienced practitioners. Take a look at the speakers below, and learn more about them and what they'll be discussing from the stage in this Meet the Speakers post.


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. 

The Drake Hotel is at 140 East Walton Place, Chicago, IL 60611
