Want to know what I thought of The New England Coastal Creative Conference? First of all, the best thing you can do for yourself and business is to invest in learning experience and keep evolving and learning. Conferences are a great way to do so which is why I try and attend a few each year.
I was lucky bought to host 2 panels during the conference and organize a cocktail party for my clients during it. I believed in it from the start, even adverting it on my podcast, as there’s nothing in the north right now bringing classic, preppy creatives together.
The New England Coastal Conference felt so welcoming, everyone was excited to be there, to see old friends and meet new ones. The energy was ALIVE!
It’s always so fun meeting people you follow online, in real life. Unlike other conferences where the speakers felt like celebs who just came in to jump on stage, talk for 30 minutes then jet back home, this conference was different because everyone mingled together, you actually got to meet those who you’ve admired.
Some speakers included powerhouse brands Sail to Sable, Chappy Wrap and Sara Fritz Studio, as well as my clients Lisi Lerch and Sara Campbell.
The conference was jam packed with activities from 9-7pm both days which made you feel like you got your money worth. There was always something to do from listening to speakers, getting a new headshot or even interactive activities like learning to paint or make a pitch deck!
While the hotel was pricey, it was a great location to host all the conference’s various activities and a short walk to amazing restaurants and shop in town. The price of the hotel was balanced out by what I consider an affordable conference ticket rate.
If you’re looking to connect with others, learn a thing or two and treat yourself to a few days OOO in a majestic setting then I can’t recommend enough The New England Coastal Creative. And you don’t even have to be New England based, I’m in PA and I met some attendees who came from the south too. Everyone was so friendly and community driven that you don’t have to worry about knowing others… I even prefer attending work events alone so I force myself to meet new friends.
