Healthy Living Summit 09

And finally, the day we have all been waiting for!!!!!!!!!

This “Summit” has been a project that myself, Kath, Tina, Heather, Caitlin and Meghann have been working on for the past five months! Of course we have all been busting at the seams to tell you all but had to keep things on the DL while we squared away all the nuts and bolts. Now finally we can unveil our baby! The Healthy Living Summit will be from August 14-15 in BOSTON at the Radisson Hotel. I’ve actually never been to Boston (except for the airport) so I, personally, cannot wait!
Here’s all the rest of the information in a nutshell:

  • There will be only 125 attendees, including some of your favorite bloggers. We expect to sell out!!!
  • You don’t have to be a blogger to attend!
  • There will be a super cool cocktail party we are hosting on the 14th (that Friday evening)
  • On Saturday, we will be hosting a conference-style summit with guest speakers, product demostrations, fun and relaxing exercise demonstrations and more (and food. Duh)
  • Everyone gets a sweet swag bag packed with healthy treats and an amazingly cool t-shirt for all attendees
  • The price of conference is $30 and that includes admission to the cocktail party, the conference itself, food at cocktail party, an awesome granola & yogurt breakfast bar and lunch buffet on Saturday
  • Stonyfield Farm, FoodBuzz, and Zesty Cook are making this all possible and we are SO thankful!!
  • Registration will be available soon! For more info, check out our website and mark your calendars now!

    That’s great you are coming to our amazing city! I grew up here, moved away for a few years to the West Coast and have been back for a few years now. As they say Boston is my home town! You will love it here…As long as the sun is shining by then. We have been stuck in a cool, rainy weather pattern for eve. Love your blog!

    It would be so much fun to go to this…:D I think it’s a great idea and will most likely grow even larger year by year. There are so many bloggers that I would love to meet…and Boston is a great location to choose, as well. 😀

    The summit sounds fantastic! But from all the comments on all of the blogs, it sounds like there are going to be waaayy more than 125 people interested. Would you guys consider a lottery registration to make it fair for people to have a chance to get a ticket? Otherwise, I bet that registration site is going to be busy as everyone tries to register at once! I once didn’t get into a race I wanted to run and that was after trying to register for over 30 minutes, starting right when the registration opened! At least if it’s a lottery, everyone has a chance.

    I never knew there were so many other Bostonians reading this site. We should have a meet-up or something! Jenna, you could be helping us make new friends!

    First, I am super excited to meet all of you lovely ladies at the Healthy living summit! I live in Boston and wouldn’t miss it for the world!
    I have a quick question, I recently started a blog of my own and discovered my camera is not the best (I have needed a new on for quite sometime now). Which camera do you have or can you recommend any that are good for taking blog photos and are jsut great in general?

  • Kodi

    I’m really bummed that I’m most likely not going to make it. Boston is just too far and too expensive for me to make it to. Good luck with all the planning!

    I am so jealous…I would love to attend this but unfortunately can’t afford another plane ticket right now and it is close the end of my semester in school, so I will be a bit frazzled as is. I look forward to your’s and Kath’s posts upon your return and while there!
