The cool gals from Create & Cultivate celebrated their latest conference this past weekend (last one of January) in Dallas, Texas. I was super pumped for it since it was announced and immediately started saving up for it. I had just gotten back from my trip to Texas and was already planning the next one. A lot of saving up and planning went into this trip, even though they never go according to plan, which is always fun.
I even managed to sneak one night in Austin since it was cheaper to fly San Juan > Dallas (layover) > Austin for 1 night > Dallas > San Juan than SJU > DFW > SJU. Weird, right? I didn’t mind, I LOVE Austin.
So back to C+C. I was pretty excited since I’ve never been to a conference.
At first I was impressed. There were so many people and it was so cold. I’m from the tropics so 40/50 degree weather is COLD. I couldn’t wait to have a warm cup of coffee in my hand. The food was great and there was always something to nibble on.
The panels were ok but there’s a lot of room for improvement. I completely understand this since the conference hasn’t been around that long, the C+C team is still pretty young and assistance has grown fast (Dallas was their biggest conference yet). This year they’re planning on doing 2 more conferences (the second city will be announced on February 15 so stay tuned to their Instagram if you’re planning on going). I hope they read the attendees’ feedback and use them to make upcoming events better. Overall I had a good time, learned a bit, got inspired and will see what they’ll be up to for the next one.
Check out the video Create & Cultivate did on the event. You can see me at the 1:34 mark… I think.
