Today I’ll be telling you all about a very exciting event coming up next weekend. It’s called Her Conference. This will be my first year attending, and I couldn’t be more excited!
Her Conference is a two-day event held in New York City. It’s filled with amazing keynote speakers, panels, workshops, contests and giveaways! This year the conference will be sponsored by Ulta Beauty, Shake Shack, Vera Bradley, Juicy Couture and Amtrak.
The first day, Saturday July 23rd, is open to Her Campus members only. However, the second day, Sunday July 24th, is open to the public!
This year’s keynote speakers are:
– Rebecca Minkoff, Fashion Designer (SO excited for her!)
– Andi Dorfman, Best-Selling Author, former ADA of Atlanta and notably from ABC’s The Bachelor and The Bachelorette
– Joyce Chang, Editor-in-Chief of SELF
– Vanessa K. De Luca, Editor-in-Chief of ESSENCE
– Nastia Liukin, Olympic Champion, Fitness Advocate and Author
– Samantha Power, U.S Ambassador to the United Nations
As for the panelists, they’ll be coming from Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, ELLE, SoulCycle, Forbes, Bustle, Marie Claire, Buzzfeed, MTV, Victoria’s Secret, The Muse, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning America, POPSUGAR, Coty, StyleWatch and many more!
Some of the panels I’m most excited for are The Business of Blogging: What brands and publishers look for in influencers and PR Powerhouses: Building a career in public relations.
As a fashion and lifestyle blogger, I really look forward to connecting with some of my peers. It’s rare that I get to network with so many like-minded, motivated women! Not to mention, Rebecca Minkoff will be in the building AND there will be Shake Shack for lunch. What more could a girl ask for?
