Where & When will BlogPaws 2016 take place?
BlogPaws 2016 will take place at the Sheraton Wildhorse Pass Resort & Spa, Phoenix, AZ - June 23 - 25, 2016.
Who should attend BlogPaws 2016?
BlogPaws conferences deliver educational sessions on topics ranging from finding content for your blog, to search engine optimization (SEO), to turning your blog into a business or a book, to holding fund raising events called "Twitter-pawties," to using specialized contest apps on Facebook, how-tos on Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, and much more. While a majority of the attendees publish about — or in some cases AS their pets — the topics apply broadly to anyone who wants to learn more about effective use of social media.
How can that not include you? Not sure yet? Read the advice some of our past attendees shared in the post (and comments), Top 10.5 Reasons to Attend BlogPaws.
Oh, and all our conferences are pet-friendly, of course. So bring along your furry, feathered, finned, shelled or scaled companion animal ... and join us!

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Will the host hotel allow pets other than dogs?
Yes, the BlogPaws Conference welcomes pets of all types. In the past we have had cats, ferrets, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, mini pigs, birds and even a capybara! If you are bringing an exotic pet and want to verify the hotel will accept your pet, please contact our event planner by emailing rebecca at blogpaws dot com.
When should I arrive for BlogPaws 2016?
For the last few years the BlogPaws Conference has kicked off on Thursday with the Exhibit Hall opening at 12pm. Additonally, we have held a networking event on Wednesday evening for those who arrive early. Wednesday is not an official kick off to the event, but with so many people at the hotel we like to bring everyone together. Please check our official schedule.
