The Blog Life University Conference visited Charlotte, NC during September of 2017. Transitioning back to a family-friendly conference the event was held at The Great Wolf Lodge and attendees were encouraged to bring along the family.
Going back to the original intention behind the Cancun conference in 2015, Melissa chose Great Wolf Lodge in North Carolina to host the 2017 Blog Life University Conference to include the family in the conference fun.
Featuring a 75,000 square foot waterpark allowed spouses and children to play while the bloggers attended intense sessions from a group of amazing speakers.
Given that Hurricanes Harvey and Irma hit the Southern United States just weeks before the conference, many attendees along with several speakers were unable to attend at the last minute. Through the chaos of replacing speakers and setting up an impromptu live streaming option, the conference was a complete success.
