Blogging conferences bring about so much excitement! While they can be so much fun, the conferences are truly educational, offer opportunities to network, help you develop your business and usually provide you with plan of action. As with any other activity related to your blogging business, the way that you present yourself at a conference is important. While attending, you are your brand, every day, every minute of the conference. Be prepared to represent your brand very well. You want to be taken seriously.
Once you register and plan your traveling, it’s time to pack for a stylish, professional, oh so cute, and comfortable experience. But….HOW? Most conferences are Thursday-Sunday so this snapshot should take you through those few days. Here’s a sample agenda and a visual (celebrity inspired) for What to Wear to a Summer Blog Conference.
*Author’s Note: I recommend substituting shoes that are pictured, for comfortable flats sandals/shoes to suit your walking needs.*
Thursday and Sunday Travel – Boyfriend jeans and tee with a little layering for the cool flight or train ride.
Thursday Night Networking Event – Fun jumpsuit; jazz it up and impress. First impressions are lasting ones.
Friday workshops – Nice pants & blouse. You can layer with a cardigan/light blazer for those cool conference rooms.
Friday Night Networking & Fun – Fun summer dress; time to show off & grab cocktails!
Saturday Workshops – Stylish dress or skirt. Show your personality and style; add cardigan/light blazer for layering.
Saturday Night Dinner / Out & About with New Blogger friends – Jeans and an easy, cute top.
You are so ready! Oh, don’t forget your FIVE must-haves since you are there for blogging business:
3. Phone/Laptop Chargers
4. Business Cards
5. Note Pad (some of us still like to take quick notes the old fashioned way)
So tell me, what are a few of your must haves to wear to a blog confrence? What do you have to take with you? Let me know!
Okay…go, go, go and have a FABULOUS time! I can’t wait to hear all about it.
