There is something a bit different about being a creative blogger…Instead of dissecting life and examining the pieces like many online writers, we’re busy dreaming, making and sharing.
We inspire one another and when we connect in ways that comfort and sustain, it is something truly extraordinary. That is why we launched Snap – a community where imaginative bloggers can come together; learn from one another and walk away invigorated.
The hallmark of this community? A three-day conference held each April in Salt Lake City, Utah, targeting makers. We’re joined by the best bloggers representing modern handmade, contemporary craft, mind-blowing home-based events and DIY, along with dozens of creative entrepreneurs.
Take a step away from your busy life and join us for lots of laughter, hugging and replenishment. You’ll walk away with a stronger sense of community, enhanced skills and an even greater sense of self.

When should I arrive?
Registration begins on Thursday. If you’re flying in from out of town, we recommend arriving before 4 p.m. on Thursday or the night before so you’re well rested for the evening’s activities. It’s going to be a fun, full, fast and furious three days!
What’s the best way to get to the venue?
The local trains are clean and easy to ride. Fare is just $2.50 and the train stops across the street from our hotel. To learn more about TRAX and plan your trip, please consult the Utah Transit Authority Website.
You can also take a cab. Fare from the airport to the hotel is likely to run about $25.

Snap will be held at the Little America hotel in downtown Salt Lake City. We recommend you stay on site, as attendees on-site receive special perks. For more information and special pricing at the hotel, visit our venue page.
What should I pack?
Plan for temps anywhere from 38 to 62 degrees Fahrenheit (Yep! Spring in Utah is all over the place.). You may want to pack a travel umbrella in case of inclement weather—it has been known to snow in April. Along with what you’d normally pack for a 3-day vacay, don’t forget your:
- Laptop or tablet
- Business cards
- Comfortable shoes
- Extra carry-on for swag

Blogger/Individual Sponsorship Policy
We’re so excited to host a diverse group of women next April for Snap We’ve worked hard not only to build a positive and informative environment, but also to keep costs down.
We’ve continued to keep costs comparatively low because we want this conference to be accessible to everyone – including those on a budget.
From meals and supplies, the cost of a conference of this type is tremendous. The cost of a conference ticket doesn’t even cover the basics for each attendee. Each registration we sell costs the conference money. Our very generous sponsors help to subsidize the remainder of the cost.
We want to honor the efforts of our sponsors and so we’re asking all bloggers with individual sponsors to abide by the following:
- Attendees will not be allowed to pass out or leave in public areas advertisements, literature, or branded materials on behalf of a company that is not an official sponsor at the conference venue or official hotel. (Dedicating space to your sponsor on your regular business card is permissible, a separate card is not.)
- If you have small gifts to distribute with your business card during regular networking, whether you’re sponsored or not, please let people opt in to receive them.
- No events, meetings or parties on behalf of personal sponsors will be permitted on the conference grounds, including the official hotel.
Though we’ve done our best to provide you with all the information you need, you still might have a question or two (or three or four). Feel free to shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to answer it.
