It is almost time for my annual Soapmakers Convention on April 18th-20th. This year it is in Indianapolis, Indiana. Unfortunately, it is going to take three different flight to get there. I leave at 10:05AM and don’t arrive until 10:59PM (providing all the planes are on time).
I am going a day early as I have signed up a special 1/2 day seminar that involves learning more about Social Media. I am really looking forward to this course as I know I will learn tips, tricks and tidbits to help me with Head 2 Toe’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram’s pages.
The actual convention is three VERY full days with different seminars, speakers and events. I come away feeling very overwhelmed but love the fact that I get to talk SOAP with other soapmakers. Usually I just get the deer-in-headlights look. LOL.
This year they are expecting 450 attendees at this year’s convention!
The speakers are always so enthusiastic and willing to share their knowledge and experience. Every year it is in a different US location and I have been fortunate enough to attend three times so far.
There are always lots of freebies including a goodie bag when we register. Most meals and snacks are also provided, which is fantastic since we really don’t have a lot of free time.
Vendors get to set up booths for us to see and smell their products. Usually they have discounts and specials to entice us to buy from them. In the evening a lot of these vendors put on special events for us to unwind, socialize and have a tonne of fun.
Stay tuned for my blog posts as I will be posting a weekly blog for each day at the convention.
