Happy New Year!

Just curious, besides FinCon, what is a conference you will be attending in 2014 and why? Cool

Thanks,

Buck

I got conferenced out from last year (NMX, FINCON, Start Conference, WDS) that for now we decided to cut back.

 

I'm only planning (as of now) to attend FINCON and WDS.  As far as the why, they both have some of the best communities at each.

I'm going to add WDS this year. Now that I live in Portland, it is a no-brainer for me. And Chris G. is awesome.

I'm a newbie so I've never been to one of these conference before, but I've heard great things about FinCon and was thinking I'd probably try to go to that one this year.

I'm unclear about FinCon, as I may have an opportunity to go to Italy that week, and as great as FinCon was, it's not Italy.

I went to BlogHer last year and was underwhelmed; there wasn't much there for serious bloggers – and even less for bloggers looking to make money.

I may go to the Economic History Association meeting to get some ideas and inspiration, but I'd love to know about others. WDS, huh?

Wish I was at NMX this weekend.. But its more likely for next year.

 

WDS is 50/50 at this point.

Fincon should happen.

 

I am keeping my eye out for something else here in the midwest that pops up,

Even if it is a day-long "workshop" of some sort.

I've never been to a pf blogging conference but I'd love to go. I'd pick with FinCon or WDS. They seem to be the coolest ones.

Hey Jeff,

Didn't realize you also hit WDS.  I agree about the great communities.  Finally reading $100 Startup.  Awesome stuff.  May have to consider this.

 

Hey Eric,

Totally no brainer.  Is this the real reason you moved? Laugh

 

Hey Dee,

I've been reading recaps for the past few years.  Gonna try and get down there this year.  Hope to see you there!

 

Hey Jefferson,

NMX is another rocking conference.  Maybe next year?  Don't they also have one in the summer in NY?

 

Hey FMO,

Agreed, but might have to throw in NMX as well.

 

Thanks everyone! Cool

I think FinCon is the only one that I'll be able to afford this year. I really didn't even know about the other ones that you guys are mentioning here. It sounds like it's easy to get overloaded with information!

Anyone from the UK know of any good conferences based in the UK? Equally, is anyone travelling over from the UK for Fincon this year?

Yep, as Barb said I am attending. Miss Thrifty will be there as well. Last night I booked everything – hotel, flights and can't wait to see you guys again.

 

I'd love to be able to go to the WDS – have been following it from the start. Will be hard though to fly to the US again so will probably skip this year.

 

Buck, agree that Chris is great thought his book before the $100 Start-up wasn't. Then again, great people are great because they learn and $100 Strat-up is really good.

Its a lot of forward planning, but I don't think I'll be able to make FinCon 2014 due to life getting very much in the way (I'll be moving country at the time). However, is it too soon to start planning 2015?! :S

I'm looking for other conferences now to attend. It looks like I should check out World Domination Summit.

AWS has a conference in SF next week. I don't know if any of you guys use their cloud services or not. I'm going to try and go check it out for a few hours.

 

There's a big Game Developers Conference going on right now too. Tons of people at that one.
