FinCon12 Coming to Downtown Denver Sep 6-9, 2012

Now for some exciting news. After considering your survey results (thank you, again) and researching hotel pricing and availability (very time-consuming process) I’m pleased to announce that FinCon12 will be held in lovely Downtown Denver on September 6-9, 2012!

Denver is going to a be a great place to have the conference. It’s centrally located (under 3 hr flight for 95% of the contiguous U.S.). Denver has wonderful weather in the late Summer / early Fall with temperatures in the low 70s. And our hotel pricing is some of the best in the country for a major metro downtown. We will be paying only $99 a night and this time it definitely includes free wifi in the room. More hotel info will be available as soon as registration opens.

So mark your calendars for Thursday, Sep. 6th to Sunday, Sep. 9th, 2012. That’s right, we get a whole extra day to spend together! The conference will likely begin Thursday afternoon with a charity event, followed by a reception at the hotel. That gives us two full days (Friday and Saturday) for meetings and socializing. This is going to be fun. More details will be announced when they become available.

Conference and hotel registration should open up in early January.

  1. I’m a little disappointed my first choice, Long Island, wasn’t chosen, but I’m excited to know when and where!! (Ok, I didn’t really pick Long Island but that would have been super cool).

    • @GlenCraig That would have been fine by me, as I could have prob stayed with friends and got to see a bunch of people I grew up with

  9. Denver sounds awesome! Too bad I have a conflict for that weekend already. Hope this one turns out just as great as the last one.

  16. Cool. Never spent any serious time in Denver.

  17. I think that is a terrific choice, PT! Looking forward to it.

    LenPenzo, December 30, 2011 at 4:30 pm
  18. GREAT!!! I put it down.

    Kathryn C, December 30, 2011 at 9:43 pm
  19. Thanks for the early advise. I live in Manila and would like to save as early as I can so I can afford to attend #FinCon12.

    As I am not really familiar with the costs of things in Denver (nor in the US), I’d like to ask, excluding the airfare, how much would be a comfortable budget so I could cover the basics? Thank you.

    • @brodfitz That’s fantastic that you are considering this trip. The hotel will be $99 +tax a night.. I would budget at least $20 a day for food. Your conference registration will include lunches on Friday and Sat. Possibly breakfast as well. Airport transport in Denver varies from $10 to $50 each way, depending on the type of transportation. Here’s some great advice on the issue: http://www.biblemoneymatters.com/how-to-save-money-when-attending-a-blog-conference/

  20. Denver is fantastic. Actually any location is fine by me – looking forward to the conference!

    Mike Holman, December 31, 2011 at 4:45 am
  21. Cool. Just got back from San Diego for the Holiday Bowl and it was 72-74 degrees and amazing!

    Denver is a nice place that’s logistically good for lots a folks and much better than Des Moines! Sounds economical too.

    Any golfers out there?

    financialsamura, December 31, 2011 at 3:42 pm
    • @financialsamura – great idea! I’d bring my clubs.

      GGMillar, December 31, 2011 at 5:07 pm
      • @GGMillar Glen, are you getting any of our e-mails? Maybe not, as we sent about 4 to you. Can you shoot me an e-mail so I know they aren’t going to spam or something? Thx, Sam

        financialsamura, December 31, 2011 at 5:22 pm
    • @financialsamura Good idea. We could get some 4-somes together

      Freesnatcher, December 31, 2011 at 6:50 pm
    • @financialsamura I golf, not very good. Might need to rent clubs but always open to play if folks don’t care that i’m not too good

      SustainablePF, January 15, 2012 at 5:01 am
    • @financialsamura I used to golf a lot when I worked on a course, and I’m hoping to get back into this year with more free time. I’d be up for it in Denver!

  22. I missed first time in Chicago. Now I am all for it. Love to see the bloggers I have been reading for years.

  25. Didn’t make it to FinCon11 but I’m gonna do my best to get there this year. I might be convinced to bring my golf clubs too if the baggage fee isn’t too crazy.

    JasonCabler, January 2, 2012 at 4:35 pm
  26. I missed FinCon11 but will try my best to make it this year. I’m a bit disappointed that it’s not in CA, but I haven’t been to Denver so it’ll be fun too.

    retirebyforty, January 2, 2012 at 5:17 pm
  27. Sweet, sounds like a good time! I’ll put it on my calendar.

    Ben Edwards, January 2, 2012 at 6:31 pm
  28. FinCon11 was awesome, so I’m hoping to make it to this one too! I’ve only been in the Denver airport so far, so I’m looking forward to getting around a bit!

    Money_Reasons, January 3, 2012 at 2:40 am
  29. Count me in! FinCOn11 was amazing, so I know FinCon12 will be amazing as well. I’ve already booked the days off work :) Look forward to meeting everyone from last year, and some new people as well.

    Cheers

  30. I have heard good things from other bloggers and would love to move forward on this.

    I have always flown into Denver but always wanted a chance to visit.

    Is this the same time as the Canadian Personal Finance Blogger Conference?

    How can I submit a session?

    Steve @ Canadian Personal Finance, January 6, 2012 at 6:18 pm
  31. Excellent! It’s on my calendar. Looking forward to a seeing Denver.
