Pinners is a one-of-kind experience where “Pinterest comes to life.” Held at Cobb Galleria Centre April 12-13, 2019, the event features the nation’s top experts, influencers and creators who lead classes on popular trends in crafting, baking, décor and much more. The 100+ class experiences are in addition to an entire shopping floor with nearly 300 local and national brands.
Pinners Conference began six years ago in Salt Lake City and quickly expanded nationally. There are now events in six cities including Atlanta, where the event visits for the third year this spring. More than 10,000 attendees from 25 states attended Pinners Georgia last year to learn, create and connect.
“Our goal is to facilitate an inspiring experience,” said Roxanne Bennett, co-founder. “We hope our attendees leave feeling enlightened, encouraged, creative and happy.”
Pinners is a customizable weekend of fun that connects the influencer, the retailer and the consumer in a face-to-face environment, enabling meaningful exchange, education and more than a few selfies. Attendees get to meet some of the most inspiring, creative people on the web and learn from them first hand. The diverse range of classes includes Styling & Photo Tips, Soap Making 101, Round Weaving, Parenting Like a Hostage Negotiator, Teach Kids How to Organize, How to Make Instant Pot Chicken Teriyaki, Intimate Kitchen Design and about 93 other topics.
“We were worried about explaining the unique coolness of Pinners, but we’ve been amazed by how quickly everyone picked up on the vision,” said Kendall Bennett, co-founder. “Attendees love the classes; they love the shopping; they love the pervasive feeling of sharing that happens at Pinners. Wherever we open a show, people just seem to immediately get it, and more importantly, love it.”
