A slightly different spin on web conferences
- 50+ Speakers Some of the finest practitioners in user experience, design, and web development will be joining us to share some amazing ideas.
- 40 Talks Over the 2 conference days there will be 40 talks total spread across 3 tracks. Pick and choose the topics that you find interesting.
- 6 Workshops A full day of hands-on workshops that'll make your brain catch fire.
- No Devices Wait. What? You read that right. We're going to rip you apart from the technology you love so much. Laptops, tablets and phones won't be allowed to be used during the conference sessions.
- Custom Notebooks We're going analog. Each attendee will receive a nice, custom BlendConf notebook along with something fancy to write with. You'll thank us later.
- Diversity We've spent fair amount of time curating speakers. We're talking basically a 50/50 male/female speaker ratio. You're going to really like these folks.

Incredibly supportive sponsors that we love
We think sponsorship should be more than just a link and logo on a website. If you're looking to put your sponsorship dollars to use we have a few pretty nifty ideas to get you noticed and be a fun experience for our attendees. If you aren't boring you should contact us.
