This fall, Arizona again welcomes the Pinners Conference, a one-of-a-kind experience that brings the best of Pinterest to life. On November 9 and 10, 2018, those that find pin-spiration from the popular website can create their own customized weekend with classes, presenters and a retail floor featuring 300 local and national brands. 

Designed to be a weekend of fun that connects the consumer, the retailer and the influencer in a face-to-face environment, Pinners Conference Co-Founder Roxanne Bennett says, “Our goal is to facilitate an inspiring experience. We hope our attendees leave feeling enlightened, encouraged, creative and happy.” Class themes include beauty and fashion, home and décor, health and fitness, DIY and crafts, and more, with some of the nation’s top experts, influencers and creators leading sessions on popular trends.

Founded in Salt Lake City in 2015, the concept quickly expanded across the country, with Pinners in Ontario, California; Atlanta, Georgia; Dallas, Texas; and Salt Lake City, Utah as well as Scottsdale, Arizona, which is hosting the event for the third time this November.

“We’ve been amazed by how quickly everyone picked up on the vision,” says Co-Founder Kendall Bennett. “People love the classes; they love the shopping; they love the pervasive feeling of sharing that happens at Pinners. Wherever we open a show, people just seem to immediately ‘get it,’ and more importantly, love it.”   

Conference hours are 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Friday, November 9, and 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Saturday, November 10.
