We are so excited — ok, giddy really — to finally fill y’all in on our upcoming Summit. For the past couple months, we’ve been working around the clock to curate an incredible day for makers and shakers that want to learn, network and get all the feels from our fun but informative conference.
So, without further adieu, our Fall Summit is Saturday September 23rd from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in downtown Dallas at the gorgeous Thanksgiving Tower! We will be taking over three floors inside WeWork, a stunning event and co-working space built for small businesses and entrepreneurs looking to office from inspiring and high-tech digs (the location could not be more perfect with our mission and demographic). Just wait until you see these sweeping views!
Perched 33 floors above downtown Dallas get ready to soak up wisdom, start up stories, cautionary tales and advice from a panel lineup that makes us weak in the knees. Glitter Guide founder and creative director Taylor Sterling will be in house to talk about her path to the digital magazine and how she manages mom life while juggling a growing company.
One Kings Lane creative director Jon Tutolo is flying in from New York City to talk about everything from online content and photography tips to his incredible success story that started as a Dallas Morning News intern. Magnolia’s lead photo stylist (yes, she’s Joanna Gaines’ right hand woman) Hilary Rose Walker will spill the beans on her new role and the curvy road to get there.
Sugarfina founder Rosie O’Neill will sweet business talk us while Dallas artist and author Alli Koch will talk about everything from finding inspiration and motivation in the self-employed world to landing a book deal. She will also host a book signing for guests!
We’re still finalizing details with a couple more panelists… stay tuned!
Some fun perks we have in store: Breakfast, a Tex-Mex lunch, margaritas, mimosas and all the Kendall-Jackson wine you could wish for. Sugarfina will be hosting a DIY candy station filled with their gorgeous artisan confections including their new tequila infused collection with Casamigos. There will be a headshot bar and beauty room hosted by Blushington for touchups and pampering throughout the day.
We are shaking up this summit with educational workshops — topics span from inspiration, motivation and blogging to social media, digital marketing, branding and retail — as well as an Desk Style session that includes a potted succulent bar, live handlettering inspirational print station and other free cool office takeaways to make attendees’ workspaces sparkle and motivate post summit.
The day will end with a networking happy hour, retail shopping featuring a handful of our beloved vendors and meet and greet with panelists for select ticket holders. All guests will get a goodie bag to take home that includes sweets, discounts and even ColourPop Cosmetics. For the first time ever, we’ve also introduced a discounted student ticket!
This Summit is going to be off the charts and we cannot wait to enjoy it with you all soon! Plan to join us? Snag your ticket now!
