Our 2017 National Media Partner is Fatherly!

by dad2summit on January 13, 2017

When you’re choosing a media partner, you want an outfit that knows what it’s doing. And ever since it launched a scant 21 months ago (yes, it’s still young enough to count its age in months) Fatherly has become one of the fastest growing media sites on the web. We love their vibe, the strength of their editorial output, and their commitment to engaging modern dads in modern ways. That’s why we’re very proud to announce them as our 2017 National Media Partner and sponsor of the Dad 2.0 Fatherly Live Lounge!

We’re going to be a lot more free-wheeling with our live video streams this year, and Fatherly’s expertise (in the past year alone, their videos have garnered more than one billion-with-a-B views) offers great opportunities for maximum live coverage and sponsor synergy. Plus, we’ve known these guys since before Fatherly was even a thing, and we know they’re a blast to work with.

A number of factors point to a blockbuster year on social for us, our attendees, and starting this year, our viewership. If you can’t make it to San Diego, look for more updates about how you’ll be able to view and interact with some of the best parts of Dad 2.017 from the contours of your own couch!


Fatherhood On Friday: Roll the Bones

January 13, 2017

It’s Friday the 13th, so it seems appropriate to remember how much of our parenthood relies on luck.

A lot of dads see […]

FoF: Going On Seventeen

January 6, 2017

Ah, young love. It gives us that exuberant, reinvigorated feeling that new years often do—allowing closure for some, and providing fresh hope for others. Most of us probably feel a bit of both. These are the early stretches, the dawn of what we think will be a particularly momentous year. In two weeks, America’s transfer […]

FoF: A Review of the Year in Review

December 30, 2016

Here we are, on the cusp of the eve of the end of the year. And while much has been debated and analyzed and lamented about 2016, perhaps more than any other year since Y2K, not all of it has been a bed of thorns. We found some roses in the mix, too. The Year […]
