Why ShesConnected is THE Social Media Conference to Attend This Fall #SCCTO

It seems every time I get on the computer these days I am hearing about another blogging conference. As a ShesConnected Conference Ambassador you already know that I’ll be excitedly making my way to SCCTO this fall, but let me tell you why!

1. Location, Location, Location

For me this is just a no brainer, I live in Ontario and ShesConnected is hosted in the heart of Toronto. While I would rather suck a lemon all day than drive in the craziness of the the T-Dot, there is no denying that Toronto is full of movers and shakers and it’s truly a perfect location. This years conference will be held in the vast Metro Toronto Convention Centre, lending space for 10 break out sessions, exhibit areas and plenty of breathing space. There will be many brands in attendance who won’t have to travel far as Toronto is a favourite for corporate head offices. While I love my rural lifestyle, there is just something about the view from a big city window to get creativity and excitement flowing!

2. Come one and Come all!

ShesConnected has never just been a ‘blogging conference’, it’s open to all kinds of social media mavens and entrepreneurs looking for a business savvy look into the worlds of twitter, facebook and the blogosphere. This creates a networking mecca as so many brilliant and creative minds are in one space.

3. Brands and Bloggers Connect

If you work with brands now or you plan to in the future, this is the best and only conference in Canada where the two come face to face for some high energy learning and a little fun. ShesConnected puts the brands in the spotlight, meaning right up on the panel platform to talk with bloggers, learn from bloggers and field questions from bloggers. It’s a very rare opportunity to get to meet the faces behind the emails in person and nothing creates a relationship faster than a hug to say hello and a good laugh with your favourite company reps.

4. Commraderie

There is nothing more fun than throwing a few hundred women in a room together who are ready to cut loose and have a little fun with no worries of ruining their dress with peanut butter hand prints or waking up to a crying baby at 3am! Yes, conferences are FUN! Learn by day, party by night, this is the best way to get to know other bloggers and form lasting friendships. Before SCCTO last year, I was a wallflower. I watched from the sidelines, I did it all on my own but after meeting other Canadian bloggers in person I jumped in and got more involved in projects other people were working on and formed some of my own. I really love the support Canadian bloggers are providing to each other, we all have knowledge to give and lessons to learn from each other.

#ShesChat

Did you know that every Monday leading up to the conference there is a twitter chat at noon? They are a great way to get to know others who will be attending the conference and include a fun learning session as well!

Join in today! I will be hosting the chat alongside Mommy Kat and Kids and Mommy Moment as we discuss our unique Canadian voice in the blogosphere!

  1. I have to admit – I’m mostly tempted to try and go. I’m just not sure i can convince hubby it’s a worthwhile investment at all! Have an amazing time!

  2. I would LOVE to go, but unfortunately can’t at this time, especially with the little ones. Hope it’s an awesome time :)

  3. Love it! Great post, Jen! Can’t wait to see everyone at SCCTO in Oct! Love #ShesChat too! So much fun!

  4. It sounds like it’s going to be so much fun! Health concerns with our youngest mean I can’t be a whole country away from her right now but I’ll be there in spirit :)

  5. I hope you have fun :)

  6. I’m sorry I missed the chat this week but, definitely AMAZING reasons why I will be there too! SO excited for #SCCTO!

  7. I am so excited about #SCCTO! Last year I was a few months into blogging I remember watching the excitement unfold… this year I will be there ((happy dancing)) I am still struggling with being in the big city without my hubby, but we both know this will be a huge turning point for In R Dream! Great chat today! Thanks for this post!

  8. Fun chat earlier today. This year is going to be completely different for me, as I feel I know so many people now.

  9. Loved the chat today!!!
    I am really looking forward to SCCTO. Last year when I went I knew no one. I am looking forward to reconnecting with old friends and making new ones.

      thanks for joining us! I know, it’s even more exciting this year because it’s about meeting up with old friends!

  10. I’m in Missouri so this isn’t one I could attend but it sounds AWESOME!!

  11. I really want to go and see what these conferences are like. I have no idea if working with brands will be the right fit for me…..but the chance to meet other bloggers and learn a little more about it is so tempting.
    Hopefully there are still tickets available.

    • momvsboys says:

      for sure, there are tickets available and stay tuned, you may see some giveaways up and running shortly!

  12. OMG, I can’t WAIT! I am seriously bouncing off the walls to see you again, hon! We’re going to have the best time! :)

  13. I’m looking to see how to get myself there. With the Announcement of #SCCVAN I know for sure I’m getting to a conference since I’m right there for that one, but I don’t want to wait! and yes, I’ll be at the twitter parties, fingers flying (which is difficult while crossed in the hopes of winning a pass to the conference! – I figured if I win one, I HAVE to get myself there!) I’ve heard so many great things I don’t want to miss it.
