Planner Con 2018 in San Francisco

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my Privacy and Disclosure Notice for more information.

I attended the 2nd Annual Planner Con event at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco in early March. This event had all kinds of heavenly planner goodness- planners, journals, stickers, stamps, cutouts, bands, charms, pens, markers and so much more!

I had not heard of Planner Con before and only happened upon it through some posts on Instagram. This was the 2nd Annual Conference, but they also have Planner Parties at various cities 4-5 times per year. The best place to find information on the upcoming Planner Con Parties as well as the 2019 conference is to follow Planner Con on Facebook.

They sold all 1,000 tickets to this year’s Planner Con and I had to get on the waitlist not knowing if a ticket would become available. Fortunately, I didn’t have to wait long.

So, what’s all the fuss about? First of all, when you attend, it’s like you’ve found your tribe. A common question upon meeting a sister (or fellow) planner, was “What planner do you use?” Can you imagine that question in the context of everyday life and the looks you might get when you ask that?!

Secondly, there was such a wonderful assortment of offerings:  Vendors, Speakers, Workshops, Raffles, Swap Table, Scavenger Hunt and Bingo.

Finally, there was the energy of the conference itself. Positive, uplifting, generous, fun, energizing.

The Filo Fax booth
was so inspiring with their wide assortment of product and samples on
display of used planners (more on this in another post).

Pipsticks is the monthly sticker planner subscription providers with so much more!

I look forward to going back again next year.

    Wow — I live in San Francisco and I never heard of this.

    I was surprised too when I only recently heard about it! It's a whole new world! Will I see you there next year?
