The quick details

When: Friday-Sunday, May 24-26, 2013

Where: Portland Art Museum, 1219 Southwest Park Avenue  Portland, OR 97205


Registration is currently open. We sold out of our 100 Early Bird spots, but full-price registration of $280 is available here.


The agenda is here! If you attended in 2011, you’ll notice this time around we’ve got more specialized classes, workshops, and talks. We’re all going to walk out of here better bloggers.


Find our speaker roster here! The application period closed on May 1, 2012—stay tuned for the 2015 applications.

    Any chance you’ll be offering exhibit only day passes? I’m not able to attend all three days, but would love to check out the exhibitors while I’m in town on Saturday.

      Hi Julie, This is definitely something we’ve talked about doing and want to make happen one day, but since the conference looks like it will be selling out soon, we have maximum capacity issues to make sure we keep under – stay tuned for the future & wish you could join us for the full weekend!
      Do consider grabbing a ticket to the Gala that evening when they go on sale : )

Kirk and the three boys came along, and we made it a weekend. Did I mention yet that this was the first time he had been alone for extended time with all three? Hehehe. We had amazing traffic going down early on Friday morning, which was shocking, as normally the traffic is awful. Kirk dropped me off and I headed to the conference, held at the Portland Art Museum. He then spent two days corralling 3 heathens […]
