Over 1,500 Personal Finance Experts and Enthusiasts to Gather at FinCon17
FinCon was featured in prleap to announce our biggest conference ever coming up in only two weeks! Here’s some of what prleap had to say.
FinCon17 is the premier personal finance digital media and marketing conference. This year over 1,500 “money nerds” will descend on Downtown Dallas at FinCon’s seventh annual event this October 25-28.
The conference features educational sessions, an expo hall, and an award show. The Keynote speakers include best-selling personal finance author David Bach, social media pioneer “Problogger” Darren Rowse, and entrepreneur/teacher Nicole Walters. Rap artist Dee-1 will also perform hit song “Sallie Mae Back.”
Top-ranked personal finance shows like Stacking Benjamins and Then Financial Diet will be featured in the live podcasting and video booths. The conference attendees also include notable personal finance media companies like Nerd Wallet, The Penny Hoarder, and Bankrate.
The majority of educational sessions are centered around digital media and marketing topics like podcasting, YouTube, blogging, and social media. However, attendees will also discuss cutting-edge money topics like early retirement, side-hustles, universal basic income, and award travel.
More than 100 sponsoring organizations and exhibitors will participate in FinCon17. Key partners include leading global advertising technology company Media.net, and Ally, an industry-leading online bank, and brokerage.
Melody Gambino, Head of Global Marketing at Media.net, says “Media.net is extremely pleased to be the principal sponsor of FinCon this year. We’re excited about hosting an amalgam of some of the most talented and successful content creators and voices in the personal finance space. It’s exciting to join forces with them and we hope to empower everyone in attendance with information and tools they can apply to chart their own growth story.”
“Ally is pleased to be supporting FinCon for the third year in a row, and taking part in an event that brings together so many personal finance influencers,” said Andrea Riley, chief marketing, and public relations officer at Ally. “Ally is highly focused on the financial well-being of our customers, and this event provides ample opportunities to collaborate with social and digital content creators as we pursue our mission of empowering consumers with digital financial services and knowledge.”
More Than Media for FinCon17
For the first time ever, FinCon is also opening their doors to the general public for one afternoon of the event. This “event within the event” called Your Money Live! is a great way for the influencers who attend FinCon to invite their audiences to Dallas to meet up and learn from the top finance experts around.
In addition to everything else, the FinCon community participates in one community service event each year. For 2017, FinCon is partnering with the National Endowment for Financial Education, on relief efforts for people affected by Hurricane Harvey.
FinCon will also bring back the FinTech Startup Competition for the third consecutive year. New FinTech companies will present and compete for media mentions and $1,500 in cash prizes. This year’s competitors include the Dallas-based startup Take Command Health, and new debt payoff app, Qoins.
