Color-inspired conferences convene every year; in fact, there’s a faith-based, color-inspired gathering for almost every shade in the rainbow. We caught up with planners of six color-inspired events to get the scoop on the audience, message and originality of each one.
Fort Worth Convention Center
Years Running: 12
Event Planner: Hannah Etsebeth
Summary: For more than a decade, women from around the world have flocked to the Dallas/Fort Worth area to celebrate their femininity and their faith at PINK Impact. Best- selling authors, notable personalities, distinguished pastors and talented performers gather there to inspire, encourage and invest in the lives of women who want to make an impact in their homes as well as in their local and global communities. While held at a central location, the event is also simulcast to partner churches all over the country to further connect women to each other and to God.
Distinguishing Factor: The planning team pays special attention to attendee feedback. Beginning with this year’s gathering, they granted the request for payment plans. Early registrants had the option to make monthly payments spread across seven months, thereby easing the financial concerns of some attendees.
