I’m the type of girl who loves to know all of my options before making a decision, especially when I’ve budgeted for just one conference a year. In the past, when I wanted to attend a conference, I’d ask around in Facebook groups for a list of events, then I’d spend hours tracking down each website and comparing features. Google was no help since the results were never geared towards my business or niche. #frustrating. Then in comes Conference Connection! I can finally search through all small business conferences in one place! It’s easy to compare features and view the speakers so I know which event fits me best.

Makeda is trustworthy and dedicated to sharing events and it’s so exciting to be a part of the Conference Connection.
