Description

November 1-2, 2018 || CORPUS CHRISTI, TX.

"MUST ATTEND" CONFERENCE FOR FREELANCERS BY USA TODAY

Started in 2014, and now affectionately known as #FREECON, The Freelance Conference is two days of events lead by industry leaders and peers. Each session is designed around the specific skills needed to run a freelance business, building momentum and opening up opportunities.

Corpus Christi brings a breath of fresh sea air to #FREECON as the first city outside of Austin to host a Freelance Conference. The organization team in Corpus Christi will be showing the world not to underestimate the freelance business owners in smaller cities.

With two days of back-to-back sessions, full of content from local and out-of-town speakers putting on workshops, campfire style chats and interactive talks on topics ranging from freelance business hacks to healthcare benefit options to marketing automation.

In honor of our inaugural year, the tickets are free … but you have to have one!

SO MUCH MORE THAN A CONFERENCE!

Whether you're in the beginning stages or a seasoned freelance business owner, #FREECON18 will set you up for success. From intimate fireside chats to workshops to interactive panel discussions and special events, you will find answers to questions you didn’t know yet to ask.


Your time at #FREECON is working ON your freelance business ... instead of IN IT.

COME JOIN US. IT'S FREE THIS YEAR.
