Fatherhood on Friday: The Announcements are Coming!

dad2summitFatherhood on Friday, Uncategorized

It’s a great time to be a dad, especially now that we’ve kicked off the 2017 Dad 2.0 Summit Newsletter Season!

Yeah, we know. Summer isn’t technically over until Labor Day Weekend. But since Dad 2.017 is a week earlier this year, we’re starting off with some quick, important updates to consider as the season winds down.

  • Our $199 Summer Sale ends on Wednesday, August 31. If you’re one of those shrewd shoppers who knows a good deal when you see one, click here and secure your spot before the price goes to $249 on September 1!
  • We’ve never sold this many tickets this soon, and now more than 90% of them are gone. Demand for this conference is as fierce as it has ever been, and we fully expect to close our ticket window at some point this fall.
  • The dedicated booking site for the Hyatt Regency La Jolla is live, so once you’ve got your Dad 2.0 ticket virtually in hand, you can book your room for the cheaper-than-ever price of $189/night!

Last, but not least, our Call for Speakers and Ideas will be open September 12-26. If you’ve got an idea, now is the time to get ready to send it in! We can’t wait to hear from you.
