Tradeshow Combines Shopping & Hands-on Classes
As the new school year begins and wanting to celebrate Texas educators with a special back-to-school gift. Texas Pinners Conference is providing them two free general admission tickets to its conference on Friday, Sept. 30 and Saturday, Oct. 30, at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth.
Pinners is two great events in one. It’s a conference featuring 100+ Pinterest-based classes taught by the best presenters in the nation. And it’s also a show with 200 top businesses providing beautiful options in the worlds of DIY, crafts, cooking, self-improvement, photography, party planning, scrapbooking, holiday, beauty and fashion and all sorts of other great things. You don’t have to be on Pinterest to come of course, but bring that adventurous spirit 🙂 Because this is where it all comes to life. And after you come, it’ll be your new favorite event!
“As a former educator, I know that teachers are some of the most inspiring individuals, especially in our children’s lives. So, what better way to encourage their creativity and show appreciation than to give them access to one of the largest creative events offline,” said Roxanne Bennett, co-founder of Pinners Conference. “We’re excited to provide access to Texas Pinners Conference in the hopes they can spend a weekend enjoying our Pinterest-inspired classes, shopping floor, make-and-takes and so much more. We can’t wait for them to experience a fun-filled and creative experience.”
The expo developed in 2013 was established to bring people together who share the common interest of learning, creativity, hobbies and do-it-yourself projects. The tradeshow floor is a unique design combining a shopping conference environment with hundreds of small business vendors with various goods and services. Attendees will have a chance to explore their creativity outside the classroom and experience two full event days focusing on inspiring others.
