GIVEAWAY for a Weekend Getaway: Digital Family Summit in Philadelphia June 29 – July 1 (UPDATED & BIGGER PROMO CODE – 30% off!)

Digital Family Summit is the first-ever conference for tech-savvy kids, tweens and teens and their parents, and my family and I are looking forward to an interesting mini getaway to Philadelphia the weekend of June 29-July1. Please join us! 

When we told the kids that we were going to a high tech family weekend, full of workshops for kids and family parties each night, they were so excited. And so am I! You and your kids will learn and connect, be inspired, and get engaged in blogging, entrepreneurship and social media. Workshops on food blogging, travel blogging, video, photography, and gaming and animation impart hands-on skills; other sessions feature tween and teen bloggers and entrepreneurs as well as adults on topics including:
  • Creativity Without Bounds: Build Your Own Games, Stories, and Animations in Scratch
  • Digital Photography Studio
  • Action! Digital Video Workshop
  • Write On! Writing Skills Workshop for Bloggers
  • Let’s Go! Travel Blogging Workshop
  • Master of the Blog: Everything You Need to Know About WordPress
  • Eat This! Food Blogging Workshop

Check out the full schedule.

All meals at the conference are geared towards parents and kids, and on Friday and Saturday nights there are special family parties, full of activities and surprises. And as a blog conference veteran, I will go ahead mention that with conference sponsors like Microsoft, Scholastic and Ubisoft, the activities, engagements and swag for you and your kids will be amazing.
I personally am loving the opportunity to gain personal enrichment and training on how to improve my websites without leaving my family behind! This conference is FABULOUS if you are a blogger or are interested in starting your own blog or social media venture. It’s not just for the kids.

So bring the whole family this June 29-July 1 in Philadelphia, PA, a fantastic family-friendly city, to grow together and have fun! My family and I (as well as Tech Savvy Mama Leticia and her crew, and other bloggers and their families) would love to hang with you! Conference registration includes all sessions, speakers, activities, meals, parties and snacks for everyone in your family.

Sheraton Society Hill in Philadelphia – Fabulously Reduced Conference Rate!

Your Digital Family Summit family conference pass does not include hotel, but does give you access to an incredibly-reduced room rate at a top-notch site. Our home for the conference is the Sheraton Society Hill, and our group will essentially take over the hotel for the weekend.  From the spacious lobby where casual groups can gather to the sunny indoor pool on the fourth floor, there are plenty of places where conference participants and the rest of the family can hang out and relax.

The hotel also features a fitness center, the Taste restaurant serving American cuisine, valet parking and newly renovated guest rooms (they’re really beautiful!).

Nearly everything you’ll want to visit is within walking distance from the Sheraton Society Hill: Independence Hall, the Reading Terminal Market, Betsy Ross’ House, Ben Franklin’s House, Penn’s Landing and dozens of beautiful parks.

A short drive or trolley ride away is America’s oldest zoo, the Philadelphia Zoo,  and the fifth largest aquarium in the country is right over the bridge in Camden, NJ. For the little ones, the Please Touch Museum is a wonderful interactive experience for kids.

Our special rate for the Digital Family Summit is only $159 for a double room.  Triples, quads, and suites will run a bit more.  You’ll receive our special rate hotel reservation link once your conference registration is processed.
