Are You Coming to The Financial Blogger Conference?

by Kristina on June 20, 2012 · 9 comments

Good Morning DINKS. I know that we may all be busy planning our summer vacations, but let me ask you a very important question…what are your plans for September?  If you are a fellow personal financial blogger, if you work in the personal finance industry, or if you just love money and personal finance then you may want to take a trip to Denver at the beginning of September.

The Financial Blogger Conference aka #FINCON12 on Twitter will take place in Denver Colorado from Thursday September 6th until Sunday September 9th.  The Financial Blogger Conference is a four day event that brings financial professionals and financial bloggers together for brainstorming and networking.

This year’s Financial Blogger Conference is being held at the Denver Grand Hyatt Hotel in Downtown Denver Colorado.  This conference a great opportunity for the financial blogging community to come together once a year to learn from each other and share our ideas with other professionals.

Last year The Financial Blogger Conference was held in Chicago and unfortunately I was unable to attend the conference.  I was sort of upset when I found out that the Financial Blogger Conference was being held in Colorado this year because I really want to visit Chicago.  However the more I search the web and the more information I read about Denver I am actually looking forward to visiting Denver Colorado for four days in September.

I have never been to Colorado but when I think about Denver I picture miles and miles of nature with green forests set in a mountainous background. Denver Colorado does look very nice in the pictures that I have seen but it turns out that there are several fun things to do in Denver Colorado. The conference is being held at the Denver Hyatt hotel which is located in a great area and it is also close to many fun attractions.  Several amenities such as great shopping, little cafes, and delicious restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel.

I’ll be there — in fact, I’ll be speaking again.
Last year was a blast. This year will be even better because everyone who attended last year is so stoked about attending once more.
