This is the Go To Free Conference Schedule for Bloggers and Brands


This master calendar, which includes direct links to blogging conferences in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, provides the most comprehensive free list of national and regional events for mommy bloggers and women bloggers and the brands targeting female demographics. It also includes blog conferences for dads and bloggers who are not parents. Constantly updated, this reference is a vital resource for bloggers, PR, agencies, and consumer brands seeking to interact via the industry's most desirable social media events.


Compiled by MommyBlogExpert 's founder Janis Brett Elspas, a professional mom blogger and social media strategist as a service to all professional blogging communities -- especially women and moms -- and to the brands targeting the mega powerful and influential female buying marketplace both in the U.S. and abroad.

As a mommy blogger myself, I am always glad to share opportunities for women who blog, both those of us with children and those without, which connect brands, consumer companies, and their agencies and representatives with female and/or mommy bloggers whether online or in-person. By extension, I'm pleased to share blogging conference opportunities with male and female bloggers alike.

If you represent a relevant event that you think should be considered for this calendar, please email information directly to me at janis@janiselspas.com being sure to include Conference Calendar Post in subject line.
