Who is this for?
The Daydream Conference is for anyone (of any background and aspiration) who can’t stop daydreaming about their goals, seeks to be surrounded by likeminded individuals in a cool, creative environment, and wants to learn from people who have been there, done that.
The Daydream Conference strives to create an ego-less safe space where failed ideas are just as congratulated as those that succeeded; a safe space where no (day)dream is too big; a safe space that not only inspires but also provides valuable resources.
So… what exactly is this?
The Daydream has a big vision, but for now, it’s a one-day, intimate conference debuting in Los Angeles, CA.
There will be diverse panel topics and speaker lineup to cater to a wide-range of (day)dreams and aspirations, and most importantly - perspectives. Aside from these conversations, there will also be select few pop-ups and mentorship opportunities.
That’s all we’ll say for now. ;)
What makes this conference different?
We will curate a truly diverse speaker line-up (with diverse panel topics) without necessarily boasting we did so. It’s just the right thing to do.
We aspire to build a sense of community and togetherness, so our experience will be intimate (limited seating). However, the vibe will feel dreamy and expansive.
Our panel conversations will dive beneath the surface and your inspiration won’t die when you walk out the door. We will strive to provide actionable items and resources so you can really make those daydreams come true.
ALL DAYDREAMERS ARE WELCOME TO COME DAYDREAM. NO MATTER THE BACKGROUND, IDENTITY, AND/OR ASPIRATION.
I’m excited. When is conference happening?
Where is The Daydream happening?
Los Angeles, CA. :)
Why The Daydream Conference?
The reimagined conference is pretty awesome. It made learning fun, networking less stuffy, and each reimagined conference has developed its own community. These days, conferences can be so cool that you could even compare some of them to a festival!
We want to create a conference just as cool as that - with one exception… actually a few. We want to create an ego-less, all are welcome experience that daydreamers of all backgrounds and aspirations not only walk away inspired from but also walk away with valuable resources. We want to create a conference that features a truly diverse lineup of panel conversation topics and speakers. We want to create a conference where you’ll find a rapper, music executive, tech developer, angel investor, fashion designer, community organizer, activist, immigrant, gamer, side-hustler, business owner, mental health enthusiast, aspiring beauty influencer, college student, etc. all in the same room.
So that’s what we’re doing. And then some.
Oh! And why “The Daydream”? Well, because we want to normalize the concept and encourage the mindset of daydreaming. It helps with manifestation and it inspires you to turn those daydreams of yours into reality. To add, the best part about daydreaming is that you’re awake in your dreams - which is exactly what we’re here to help you do.
