Things to Do If You Are Attending Focused Blogging Conference 2018

The RVA is constantly making the Top List!

If you will be attending the Focused Blogging Conference in Richmond, Virginia this year, let me be one of the first to welcome you to the Capital City or #RVA as it’s known.

The RVA is an absolutely amazing city, and I’m proud to have called it home since 1992. There is so much to see and do in our city, that I wanted to make sure you had a fairly comprehensive list of everything possible. If you find yourself with some free time before or after the conference, I sincerely hope you take the opportunity to visit a few of the items on our list!

At Focused Blogging Conference you’ll learn from qualified mentors who are experts in their field and your peers how to increase traffic, leverage leads and scale income.

The conference is being held at the Omni Hotel Richmond from Wednesday, July 11th at 5PM Eastern through July 14, 2018 at 6PM Eastern. Attendees are responsible for their own hotel ticket; however, a block of rooms have been reserved for conference attendees at a discounted rate. 

Tickets can be purchased from the Focused Blogging Conference website. You can purchase a General Ticket or go for a VIP Ticket. The General Tickets are valued at $3,749 for just $475. The VIP Tickets are valued at $5,149 for just $997.

You can stay up-to-date on all the latest information and announcements via the website and you can stay in contact via Twitter and Facebook.
