The annual event is a time to connect with other influencers who create new media (blogging, podcasts, social media, and video) about financial topics (like debt, investing and coupons).
In addition, the vast majority of the influencers attend to connect with brands for advertising partnerships.
There are panels and workshops where attendees can hear from experts and other influencers on various topics related to creating, promoting and profiting from money-related content, as well as, what’s next in personal finance and investing.
You’ll learn how to craft compelling digital content for your personal finance platform. Hear success stories and tips from influencers and experts in your niche.

#FinCon19 will be held at the historic Washington Hilton right in the heart of D.C. between Dupont Circle and the Adams Morgan neighborhoods. (Cue “You’re a Grand Old Flag” or the patriotic song of your choice.)
Keynotes will be held in the same ballroom where the National Prayer Breakfast and the White House Correspondents’ Dinner take place.
Snap a selfie along The President’s Walk–the hallway every president has walked through since 1976–and view Library of Congress portraits of every president and first lady of the United States. Step out the side entrance of the Hilton to see the site where President Reagan was shot.
