The 7th Annual Blog Societies Conference will be held on August 16th-18th, 2019 at Barnsley Resort just outside of Atlanta, Georgia.

This years event will be much like our previous Blog Societies Conference our attendees know and love, but with a fun new twist. In addition to providing influencers with intimate, expert-run workshops, brand networking and keynotes speakers, we’ll also be expanding on our mission to cultivate community among bloggers with retreat-style activities and team building events.

So let us introduce you to our 7th Annual Blog Societies Conference theme – #TheRetreat! Take off those high heels and have some fun with late night s’mores, horseback riding, cocktail competitions and some rest and relaxation poolside at the most picturesque resort Atlanta has to offer.
