Lauren Black, Strategist for Creative Entrepreneurs
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.

Posting on the Conference Connection and working with Makeda was a breeze! We wanted to make sure to get our event out and seen by as many people as possible and I’m confident that the Conference Connection will help us reach our goals. Makeda is trustworthy and dedicated to sharing events and it’s so exciting to be a part of the Conference Connection.
