The Propel Conference will take place over two and a half days, with a two-day post trip to follow, from May 23 -28, 2019. The breakdown of dates is as follows:

May 23: Arrival date
May 24-26: Conference dates 
May 26-28: Post trips in and around Graz and the surrounding Styria region

Lots of conferences and courses promise advice and tips to aid blogging, but with practical workshops and advice from expert speakers covering everything from content (especially photography and video) to business skills, SEO, affiliates and advertising, the Propel Conference will provide you with strategies to successfully make your aspirations a reality.

The Propel Conference is for intermediate level bloggers wanting to increase their skills and advance to the next level.

There will be workshops with speakers already successfully doing what you wish to achieve, be that earning a regular income through blog campaigns, monetizing via affiliate sales or creating super content. Furthermore, the conference will have one-to-one-advice sessions where you can talk with the experts and get specific assistance.

If you want to be a professional blogger you will need to earn an income, and we will also share the business skills and mindset needed to succeed.

As blogging evolves and becomes increasingly professional, both from the blogger and the industry side, we all have to grow and develop with it. We all need to understand our role as bloggers and influencers.

If bloggers are to survive and prosper we need to be professional and understand the industry from a commercial perspective, as well as being able to spot and maximize business opportunities. Propel is designed to provide exactly that.

Post trips

Post-trip itineraries are still being developed, however, there will be a tour of the city of Graz, another exploring the wider region, Styria’s wine country plus the nearby mountains, with themes including culture, food and wine (did we mention that Graz is Austria’s Culinary Capital? Definitely one for foodies!), outdoor adventures and wellness.
