The International Babywearing Conference has been held every two years since 2006. It is an offshoot of Babywearing International providing an exciting opportunity for babywearing enthusiasts and professionals to get together. This year's conference will be held in Des Moines, Iowa from July 19 to July 22.
I am extremely excited to be attending this year for a few reasons. Number one, I get to present two great sessions; Ring Sling Love and a panel discussion I will be leading called Rejuvenating Babywearing Meetings. Second, the list of sessions is very exciting. So many different topics and perspectives from so many well respected educators, researchers and health professionals. Please check out the complete list at http://www.internationalbabywearingconference.com/sessions.html
I am also excited to meet so many of my long time virtual friends. People I have known for years thanks to social media but have never been face to face. Conferences are an invigorating and exciting place for me. I can guarantee that many blog posts and ideas will be inspired during those four days thanks to my talented colleagues.
As one of my sessions is all about ring slings I plan to start doing reviews and revels of all the ring slings I will be bringing with me so stay tuned here for more details. I will have some demo ring slings after the session that will need to find new homes. Perhaps a giveaway? Time to brainstorm some fun ways to enter in person and online.
