LOS ANGELES, CA (June 12, 2022) – Returning from a “pandemic break” in Southland, the Pomona Fairplex will host Pinners Conference & Expo California, Friday and Saturday, August 26-27, 2022. The Pinners Conference is a must- attend an event for makers and lifestyle enthusiasts where experts connect with those who love to tinker, cook, learn self-care and create. Over two days, guests will have the opportunity to attend over one hundred lectures and presentations covering a variety of topics from industry leaders.

“The Pinners Conference is the only DIY, cooking, craft and style show where the pages of pinterest come to life,” said Roxanne Bennett, CEO. “We connect consumers with top influencers across a variety of interests. Whether it’s cooking, baking, decorating, home decor, or anything creative, Pinners is the destination to learn something new, hone your skills, and collaborate with the best in their field.

Pinners is two great events in one. It’s a conference with over 100 Pinterest-based courses taught by the best presenters in the country. Pinners is also an exhibition of top 200 companies with great options in the worlds of DIY, crafts, cooking, self-improvement, photography, party planning, scrapbooking, vacations, beauty and fashion and much more

Pinners is originally a lifestyle exhibit, with a few retail vendors. “We were inspired to provide a space for the ‘everyday’ person to be inspired, rediscover themselves, learn a new skill and shop for the latest trends from fashion and lifestyle brands,” Bennett said. “Our first Pinners conference was in Salt Lake City in 2013. Since then, we’ve expanded to major cities across the country. From California, Texas, Utah, Idaho, Indiana, Arizona to Georgia and Kansas, we are proud to bring together a dynamic group of Presenters to thousands each year.

Expecting approximately 10,000 attendees at the Pomona Fairplex, the Pinners Conference features the best and brightest influencers in a forum to share their knowledge by offering classes that are hard to find at local craft stores, community colleges or boutiques. Supported by Home Depot, Michael’s Crafts, Bee Kissed Caramels, Clover Needlecraft, Inc., Discovery Toys, Dunn-Edwards Paints, Jada Rose Jewelry, Matilda Jane Clothing, PB Creates, Petal Salad, She Shed Living, The Cat’s Meow Shop, and Verse Your Hair, plus others .

“Pinners Conference continuously adapts to trends. Whether it’s popular trends in fashion and beauty, home decor, DIY, cooking, fitness or crafts. Bennett said. “Our courses and exhibitors vary each year depending on what people are passionate about at the time.”

Specialty courses and presentations include, home scroll board, customizable letter ledges, geometric air plant hanger, beginner brush lettering, macrame plant hanging, everyday hairstyles using basic products and tools, rainbow punch embroidery, succulent kokedama, French macaroons 101, how to make churro Magic at Home, Fall in Love with the Art of Flowering, Fabric Collage to Balloon Garland 101 A full list is available on the Pinners website.

“With so many options, our customers can customize their weekend. Whether it’s choosing courses, attending seminars, shopping and creating,” Bennett said. “Someone could stop by the Michaels Crafts stall and design a free make-and-take before taking a class from a local artist to learn watercolors, then find their new favorite outfit at a local boutique. Be sure to plan the whole day!”

Advance registration is strongly recommended, space is limited and class places are selling out. Tickets are still available for walk-ins on the day of the event.

“Come with your friends on a girl’s weekend, or make it a day for you,” Bennett said. “Our guests are always amazed after trying a single class or buying something special, they have discovered a love for something new!”
