Pinners Conference and Expo 2020

Pinners Conference California Returns to the Southland at the Pomona Fairplex

February 26, 2020

Returning to the Los Angeles area, the Pomona Fairplex will host Pinners Conference California, 

Friday and Saturday, March 13 – 14, 2020. 

Pinners Conference is a must-attend event where lifestyle experts and trend setters connect with those who love to DIY, design, decorate, craft, cook, and create. 

For two days, guests will have the opportunity to attend more than one hundred classes and presentations covering a variety of topics led by industry leaders.

“Pinners Conference is the only DIY, cooking, crafting and style expo where the pages of Pinterest come to life,” said Roxanne Bennett, CEO. “We connect consumers with the top influencers in their fields who offer the know-how needed to start (and finish!) any project.”

Originating as a women’s expo, with a few retail vendors, the idea of a Pinterest- inspired event was born. “We were inspired to provide a space for the “everyday”

woman to be inspired, try something new, re-discover herself and be educated, as well as shop,” said Bennett. “Our first Pinners Conference was in Salt Lake City in

2013. We have since expanded to six locations throughout the country, adding Texas and Arizona in 2016, Georgia in 2017, California and Minneapolis in 2018 and for the

second year in a row, returning to the Inland Empire.”


Expecting an estimated 10,000-15,000 attendees at the Pomona Fairplex, Pinners Conference showcases the best and brightest crafters and lifestyle leaders in one

forum to share their knowledge by offering classes that aren’t easily found at local craft stores or boutiques.

“Pinners Conference is continually adapting to what is trending now. Whether that is the hottest trends in fashion and beauty, in home decor, DIY, cooking, fitness or crafting.” said Bennett.

“Our classes and exhibitors change every year based on what people are excited about now.”

“Pinners Conference is truly about the experience. When consumers come, they get to pick and choose which classes they take or if they just want to shop and who they shop from,” said Bennett. “Guests can customize their most fun and creative weekend, ever. 

Someone might stop by the Michaels Crafts booth and create a free make-and-take before taking a class by a local artist to learn how to watercolor, then find their new favorite outfit from a

local boutique.” Advance registration is recommended, classes will sellout, however spots are available for walk-ins the day of the event.

“Come with your friends, your kids, a girl’s weekend, or make it day for yourself,” said Bennett. “Our guests are always amazed after trying just one class or buying that something special, they’ve discovered a love for something new!”
