Here on IFB, we have a lot of tips for you on networking and how to make the most of conferences. Now, where to put these skills to good use?
These days, there are a variety of conferences that either cater or appeal to fashion bloggers. Blogger conferences are chockfull of tips, best practices and learned lessons from big brands, fashion startups, reps from useful tools and resources (think RewardStyle and MailChimp) and of course, experienced bloggers. There are plenty of networking opportunities (read: fun parties) where you can meet other bloggers, and there's always plenty of awesome swag from sponsors who are looking to reach out to bloggers in some way.
Having attended my fair share of blogger conferences, I can say wholeheartedly that they are worth the time, money and energy put into them. They can get expensive, when you factor in travel, hotel, food and conference pass. Create a budget for yourself, look for flight and hotel deals, and see if you might be able to split costs with a buddy – or a blogger friend you have yet to meet IRL!
All that said, here is a list of blogger conferences we're aware of that have been active in the last year or so. International IFB friends, I need your help! Please let us know if you have any conferences outside of the U.S. to add in a comment below. If we missed any others in the U.S., feel free to add those too!
