The 4th Annual Minneapolis Yoga Conference was held the first weekend in March of 2017, and we're already busy planning for year 5! We expect our new site to launch sometime at the end of May or early June but we wanted to start sharing some of our plans in the meantime.
Looking back at the 2017 Conference
We've put together all the photos from the 2017 conference on this page. For those of you who attended, we hope you find some joy in revisiting the weekend and we encourage you to peruse the photos to find one of yourself that you love. You may use any of the photos you'd like for any purpose, and all photos are licensed under the Creative Commons License. Please give credit to Ripple Yoga Photography when using the photos. If you've never been to the conference, take a look at all those smiling faces and save the date for next year!
Key Takeaways from our 2017 Survey
At the end of the 2017 Conference we conducted a survey and about 30% of attendees completed it. Some key take aways:
- 90% of respondents indicated they would come again
- 90% of respondents also indicated they would recommend the conference to a friend
- over 80% of respondents indicated the conference was worth what they paid.
It wasn't all roses and sunshine of course, and we'll be working hard to address the few things that people found to be sub-optimal.
Looking ahead to 2018
We're already planning for 2018, have invited and received commitments from a number of presenters, and are looking forward to everything that lies ahead.
Unlike previous years, we are not planning to have an early-bird discount for the 2018 conference. Instead, we intend to reward early ticket purchasers by adding value!
To this end, we're thrilled to announce that we'll be hosting three quarterly "preview events" in Minneapolis, each one with one or two presenters from the 2018 conference, and we'll also have a way for people to make quarterly payments in an effort to make the conference financially accessible to as many people as possible.
Our first preview event will be held in June or July, another will be held in September, and a final one in December. These events will only be open to people who have purchased their MYC passes and they will be included with the price of your passes.
We expect ticket sales for the 2018 conference to go on sale when we launch the new site.
