We’d love to have you! Head over to our Become A Sponsor page and tell us what you have in mind, and we’ll work together on a plan to fit your goals and budget.
The ninth Dad 2.0 Summit will be held February 27-29, 2019, at the Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC.
  • All sessions, workshops, keynotes, and hospitality suites during the conference;
  • Breakfast, lunch, and snacks on Friday and Saturday; and
  • Evening events (including food & beverages) for Thursday and Friday nights.
For companies who are eager to engage with dads but aren’t ready or able to sponsor, we’ve created the Business Ticket. It involves and invites more brands in our conversation, and it helps keep blogger costs low despite our increasing costs. You can read more about it here.
We created Our Scholarship Fund to help more men attend the Dad 2.0 Summit, and in our fourth year we were honored to rename it after Oren Miller, a beloved dad blogger and friend who died of lung cancer on February 28, 2015.
The conference will officially open with the Welcome Party on Thursday night and end Sunday at noon. As the schedule takes shape, however, it is of course subject to change.

We’ve created a private Dad 2.0 Community Facebook group that is open only to current and past conference attendees. Apply for inclusion after you’ve registered, and after you’re cleared, leave a comment and introduce yourself. It’s a great opportunity to get to know one another, coordinate travel, find a roommate, etc.

There will be a conference specific group closer to the event.

Hell, yes. Our conference has “Dad” in the title, but many moms have spoken with us over the years, and we value their expertise. Plus, we wouldn’t be dads without them.
We’re very fortunate to have had so many content providers, media professionals, and brand representatives speak at Dad 2.0 over the years. You can find the list of everyone who has ever graced a lectern with us here.

Our conference has a basis in business, and we discuss many facets of how bloggers and brands work together to sustain our industry. But we also know your online presence is most salable after you’ve found your center as a writer, as a father, and as man.

We will announce the Call for Speakers to our newsletter subscribers. Make sure to sign up for the latest happenings.
Absolutely. If you’ve bought your ticket directly through Dad 2.0 and subsequently sign on as a speaker, you will be reimbursed in full. We prefer to use PayPal, because it’s quick and electronic.
We do not offer ticket refunds, and tickets purchased may not transfer to subsequent years. If you are unable to use a ticket you’ve purchased, however, you can find a buyer (which becomes easier after tickets sell out).

If you’d like to transfer or donate your ticket, go to this Eventbrite page for instructions on how to do so, and make sure to update it with ALL of the buyer’s information. (The ticket can only be managed and edited by the original ticket owner.)

Sign up for our newsletter. You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Media passes for Dad 2.0 Summit are available by invite only. We reserve the right to refuse media passes, without cause, during pre-registration as well as on-site media registration. Please be advised that media passes are limited in number and are reserved for commercial news outlets.
We understand the interest in planning a family vacation around our event. Families are absolutely welcome, with the understanding that every family member who would like to attend needs a ticket. If you’re planning a family trip to the conference, please let us know at info [at] dad2summit [dot] com.

It also merits noting that although having your family around is great, it can also be distracting. We recommend that you schedule your days as alone time for you to attend the entire Summit, so you can get the most out of your experience (and save a bunch of money).
