The greatest part about being an entrepreneur is you get to determine what you learn, how you learn, and where you learn it. I’m stoked because this year I took that to heart and strategically hand-picked a few conferences and retreats around the world to help me up my game in business.
Currently, I’ll be heading to Palm Springs for the Altitude Summit and Majorca Spain for the Brand Stylist Retreat.
This got me thinking, what other conferences are out there for women entrepreneurs? And not just any old conferences, stylish and chic experiences that are created for ladies who want to level up.
Next thing you know, I ended up with the ultimate conference bucket list, and I’m sharing it with you:
Alt is the got to conference for creative entrepreneurs and chic social media influencers. Here, you’ll find sessions and resources for an extensive spectrum of skill levels. It doesn’t matter if you are just starting out, or you are already established, Alt is still a good investment. According to their website “If you’ve already designed a successful line of products, if you opened your first Instagram account last month, if you’re a social media pro, or if you’re just thinking about starting a future website, then Alt Summit is for you.”
Beautycon Festivals bring the biggest content creators, celebrities, brands, and fans together to celebrate beauty, self-expression and staying true to oneself. Filled with engaging panel discussions, meet-ups, selfies and brand activations, Beautycon Festivals have seen more than 100,000 fans worldwide
Blog her conferences are the world’s biggest celebration of women content creators across social media, video, photos, and the web. The conference’s purpose is to encourage women to congregate and honor each other, find opportunities to work with brands. Attendees come home with new concepts, abilities, and relationships.
Boutique Design New York (BDNY) is the foremost trade fair and conference for the hospitality design industry, gathering interior designers, architects, and hospitality owners together with manufacturers and marketers of hospitality interiors products and services. Attendees enjoy CEU sessions, hands-on demos and seminars; unique social events held at some of Manhattan’s most impressive venues; and an environment favorable to knowledge, networking and expanding your business.
The Brand Stylist retreat is an all-inclusive, deluxe escape for creative professionals. Retreat goers get to take a step away from the day-to-day running of their business, up their skill sets, elevate their offerings and amplify their visions. I’ll actually be going next year and I expect to return thoroughly restored, reinvigorated and motivated for my next season in business.

This conference is for any brands that are leveraging the web and blogger networks, and any design professional seeking to learn more about using social and other digital content for branding, connecting, or e-commerce.

You will enhance your design eye and individual aesthetic through hands-on lessons in a diversity of topics like floral design, tabletop styling, and brush calligraphy, to name a few.
This conference is for women who know they were made to work for something bigger than themselves, & they desire the solid, real know how it takes to make that happen. An exciting 3-day experience with lecturers, social enterprises, seminars and 500 women gathering in the heart of creativity and grit, the Downtown LA Arts District.
That’s my complete bucket list of conferences I plan to attend in the next 2 years. Let me know where you are headed? I’m always down for conference buddies!
