Haven Conference News

by Chris on May 2, 2013

My fellow team members and I are getting SO excited for the upcoming Haven Conference this summer!

Haven DIY conference

Last year was our first year and it was a huge success! We are thrilled to do it again! This year Haven will be held at the beautiful Buckhead Grand Hyatt in Atlanta, Georgia from Thursday, August 1 to Saturday, August 3.

Just in case you don’t know the Haven team, allow me to introduce us (does that make sense?).


It includes Beth from Home Stories A to Z, Sarah from Thrifty Decor Chick, Rhoda from Southern Hospitality, Traci from Beneath My Heart, and me! Oh, and we can’t forget rock star Kristin who is a BIG part of making the details of the location and logistics happen.

First and foremost, we need to give a BIG shout out to our awesome sponsors – The Home Depot, Frogtape, Rustoleum and GMC just to name a few:





We’re busy finalizing the sessions for the conference, and we have an incredible group of designers, bloggers and business people who will be sharing their knowledge with attendees. Go here to see who will be joining us (we are still adding them so check back often!).

————————————————-TICKET Information————————————————-

The conference is sold out, but there are still a couple of ways to get tickets! Each of the team members will be holding a giveaway for a ticket.

May 13th:  Just a Girl

May 20th:  Home Stories A to Z

May 27th:  Beneath My Heart

June 3rd:  Southern Hospitality

June 10th:   Thrifty Decor Chick

In addition, there are still some ticket exchanges taking place on Haven’s Facebook page. Check in often to get updates! An important note for ticket holders–there will be no transfers honored after July 1st.

———————————————–How to Stay Connected———————————————–

If you already have your ticket you should have received an invite to the Haven Mavens Facebook (private) page. If you didn’t, email one of us {jagirl44 (at) gmail (dot) com} to let us know. We’ll get you on there! It’s a great place to chat and “meet” one another before the conference! We’ve also created a Haven Conference Instagram account – you can follow it at “havenconf”.

We’ve also started up a linky party over at the Haven Conference site (for attendees).  If you are joining us, please link up your blog and visit those who will be attending as well!


And of course, feel free to add the Haven Maven button to your blog to let everyone know you’ll be there! Are you attending the conference this year? It’s only three months away, and we’re all counting down the days! Can’t wait to see you there!

Chris, we’ve all been giggling and planning on the Haven Maven page. What a blast. I hope to spend a little time with you, although I know you’ll be really busy! At least school’s almost out, yes? No rest for you! xo
