If you’re a stylist looking to make it big, chances you must attend #PinkCon2019. As one of the biggest stylist conventions in the US, PinkCon is a great place to go for anyone looking to learn more from industry professionals while also picking up some amazing products. The events will span networking, training, and recognition, give you so much to do with so many people.
The fact that this year’s PinkCon is located in Orlando, Florida is even better! Set in the gorgeous Sapphire Falls Resort, you can soak up the sun while also advancing your professional career!
However, the amount of variety in the booking options makes it difficult to know exactly where to start! This is why we’ve made this Handy Guide for Attending Inspire #PinkCon2019 so your trip is the best it can possibly be.
Plan on Exploring the Area
If you’re somebody who isn’t local to the Orlando area, chances are you’ll want to explore the city outside of convention hours. There are plenty of different places to visit in the area. If you want to make sure you get the most out of your trip, leave some cushion days at the beginning or end of the convention and plan a general Orlando itinerary
After all, #PinkCon2019 is right across from Universal Studios Orlando, one of the best theme park resorts in the world! With two theme parks filled with unique attractions (Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure), you could easily spend two days in each park exploring the nooks and crannies. If you’re a stylist who has a YouTube channel, it could also be a great opportunity to make some videos themed to areas in the various theme parks! The generally stellar weather and fun, beautiful backdrop make up an influencer’s dream.
Figure Out How You’ll Get There
If you’re somebody who is used to a hectic schedule, then it might make sense to just fly there. The Orlando International Airport (MCO) is only half an hour away. Orlando Sanford Airport (SFB) is a bit farther away. However, if you’d rather have a larger budget to spend on things at the convention, then consider driving. Not only can it be a great way to see the country in a way you’ve never seen it before, but you’ll likely also save a good deal of money along the way!
Finding the Right Place to Stay
Finding a place that is affordable and also close to the convention is very important if you want to make sure you don’t waste too much time traveling in Orlando. After all, the traffic in Florida can sometimes be intense, so you don’t want to get caught up in rush hour, right?
Group rate tickets to stay at the Aventura Hotel are currently sold out, but you may still be able to stay there at the normal rate. Doing so won’t save you any money, but you could still hang out with friends old and new that you make at the conference.
Because the convention is also on Universal property, you’ll be able to get to and from the event quickly while also being able to appreciate the wide variety of attractions and activities the area has to offer. If you want one of the best values for your money, the Hyatt Place across from Universal Orlando Resort is a great choice. Not only do you save on travel costs to go from the hotel to the conference or Universal (there’s a shuttle to Universal Orlando Resort), but it’s a well-appointed, modern hotel that gives off a fun vibe.
No matter how you plan your #PinkCon2019 experience, you’re guaranteed to have fun. What did you think of our handy guide? Are you heading down this year? Let us know what you’re excited about!
