Just this past week, I celebrated my 8th anniversary of blogging here at Day by Day in Our World. It wasn’t until last year that I finally attended my first conferences for this new subset of the marketing industry. Later this year, I am going to be going to ShiftCon 2016 in New Orleans. This conference is a little different than some of the others as everyone attending, influencers and brands alike, have a high interest in an area coined eco-wellness.
Since hitting ‘midlife’, I’ve noticed that years of making poor choices are adding up. Those choices might have been skipping exercise or just not paying attention to where my food is coming from. The bottom line is that my body is out of whack and I’m now on a mission to improve my life and share the process with others.
While I am excited to be attending, I am sure there are many people out there who would seriously benefit from this 3-day experience. Hence, my motivation for sharing the Top 3 Reasons to attend ShiftCon 2016 in New Orleans on December 1 – 3.

#1 The Opportunity to Learn More in the area of Eco-Wellness
If you have an interest in fully embracing a healthy lifestyle, then this is a great venue to get educated. ShiftCon 2016 covers the areas of wellness, environment, lifestyle and food. The speakers for this year are still being determined, but you can get an idea of what to expect from the Shift Con 2015 Speaker page.
Like many conferences, some of the meals are included in the cost of admission. What’s a bit different for this particular conference is that they only serve non-GMO food. I can hardly wait to see what food choices will be present. They have also hosted yoga and a 5K run as part of the overall event.
#2 Make Connections with Influencers & Brands
This is a commonality for all blogging conferences. However, at ShiftCon, you’ll meet other online influencers (e.g. bloggers) who have at least a moderate interest in not just talking the talk, but walking the walk of a healthy lifestyle. How much they embrace it is going to be different, but the underlying passion is there. And, the brands are companies that are fully on board with being non-GMO for their ingredients and leaving our planet better off in the process for future generations to enjoy.
Here’s a sampling of the brands on board to sponsor ShiftCon 2016:
#3 It’s New Orleans, Ya’ll!!!
Okay, I’ll admit that this gal who grew up in the ‘burbs of NOLA is always happy to have a reason to visit. This time, I plan to bring the family and spend time with my parents, aunt, and my sister and her family in the days before and after the conference.
If you’ve never had a chance to visit New Orleans and the surrounding area in Louisiana, it is definitely bucket list worthy. There are awesome attractions and the foods is, well, nothing short of amazing. This is a place where multiple cultures have melded and the outcome is spectacular. And with ShiftCon 2016 held in early December when the weather is cool, but not frigid, it is easy to enjoy all New Orleans has to offer.
