2019 Annual Conference in DC

Type-A Parent is now Plaid St!

September 26 – 28, 2019
Alexandria, VA

Join us and our inspiring community of bloggers and social media influencers for three days just outside of Washington D.C. for the 13th Annual Plaid St Blogger & Social Media Influencer Conference. You’ll experience motivating stories, intensive workshops, insightful panels, exciting brands, and interesting new technology solutions to help you build your own media empire.

We made two BIG changes this year. First, there is one option for the full 3-day VIP experience instead of the VIP and "non-VIP" passes of previous years. Plus, you'll have the chance to choose from intensive Bootcamps and Academy Sessions to take a deep dive on one area of your business - some will require additional purchase, others are included in the ticket price.

Check out the highlights from our 2018 Event

Who Attends This Event?

We're expecting 350 attendees. They are primarily female entrepreneurs who have built thriving businesses based on their influential blogs and social media presence. Most are lifestyle bloggers who focus on the family or topics related to their family life like food, travel, education, shopping and so on.

Is It Just for Parents?

Plaid St is not exclusive to parents. The community started over a decade ago, comprised mostly of moms who had picked up blogging as a hobby while they raised their young children. Over time, our organization has grown along with our community who blog about a wide range of topics and lifestyles. We have recipe and food bloggers, travel bloggers, beauty and fashion bloggers, makers and craft bloggers, business bloggers, pet bloggers, home decor bloggers, and, of course, parenting bloggers.

What Makes Plaid St Special?

Plaid St is well-known for its strong content. While other blogging events are known for the "swag", the awards, or the exclusivity - Plaid St is known for the business of blogging. Our speaking roster is filled with professional practitioners - not motivational speakers or reality TV stars. At Plaid St you'll learn from real people who built successful businesses by trying and failing.

Special Session - Funnel Bootcamp with Kim McCarter

Our 2019 event will be held at the beautiful Westin Alexandria (same location as our 2017 conference). Surrounded by old-world charm, restaurants and shopping and just a quick trip to downtown DC.
