Pinners Conference and Expo celebrates fifth anniversary in Arizona this November

The Pinners Conference and Expo celebrates its fifth annual Arizona Pinners Conference, which returns on Friday, Nov. 12, and Saturday, Nov. 13. 

During the two-day event, WestWorld of Scottsdale will come alive with online inspiration.

The extravaganza features more than 100 hands-on classes and more than 250 vendor shopping booths, providing attendees with the opportunity to develop new skills, shop the latest trends while supporting small businesses and create finished projects of their own.

Kendall Bennett and Roxanne Bennett founded the Pinners Conference and Expo seven years ago in Salt Lake City with the idea to bring the spirit of Pinterest to life.

By inviting guests to learn, create and connect through a series of workshops and opportunities, the event empowers them to customize their experience while connecting with other passionate “DIYers,” creators, experts, influencers and retailers.

“Our vision of the Pinners Conference has continued to evolve as online inspiration does,” Kendall Bennett, co-founder of the Pinners Conference and Expo, stated in the release. “We are pleased to partner with valued sponsors and vendors to create a comprehensive experience that is educational and fun — and that connects a community of like-minded people in a vibrant, welcoming environment.”

This year’s event sponsors include The Home Depot, Michaels, Dixie Belle Paint Company, Chalk Couture, Janome, Plaid Crafts, Craft HTV and Makers Movement.

Pinners has since expanded nationally with events in California, Georgia, Minnesota, Texas and Arizona.

The Pinners Conference and Expo gathers some of the best brands under one roof, providing attendees with one-of-a-kind opportunities to meet with and learn from some of the most inspiring, creative women on the web including experts in DIY, home décor, food arts, fashion, beauty, self-improvement, sewing, party planning, photography and much more.

At the end of the event, attendees take home finished projects and new skills to improve their lifestyles and develop their personal advancement. 

The Pinners Conference serves as a place to create lasting memories, build relationships and empower guests to create without limitation.

Hours will be 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Nov. 12 and 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Nov. 13.
