THE SCHEDULE
This year we are proud to offer two stand-alone conference days to choose from. Each day is a separate, ticketed event, so buy a ticket to one — or buy tickets to both!
Tickets are not transferable from one day to the next, so please plan ahead, choose wisely, and get your tickets now as our events have frequently sold out. If you are interested in purchasing a bundle of tickets, email lisa@theinspirationlab.co to inquire about pricing.

Welcome Reception

& Early Registration 

NOVEMBER 12, 2019  |  5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Ticket-holders for either or both days of the conference are welcome to attend.

Our welcome reception will be held at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Wilmington Riverfront and officially kicks off two days of conference fun. We’ll have yummy food (provided by our exclusive hotel sponsor, Embassy Suites), signature cocktails, a cash bar, an interactive Cloud 9 photo booth, and Cloud 9 cotton candy spun by Spinning Cotton. 

 

Don’t miss this chance to meet other attendees, get your name tag and materials at early registration, and enjoy some delicious cotton candy.

Rise & Shine Conference Signature Conference

NOVEMBER 13, 2019  |  8:30 AM - 5:30 PM

Attendees must have an “Inspiration Lab Signature Conference” ticket to attend.

Speakers and panelists at the Wilmington Convention Center will cover topics including negotiation, self-care and boundaries, leadership, personal and professional resilience, creating community and culture in the workplace, and more.

The speaker lineup is incredible, and you can count on doing some self-reflection, being inspired, and learning action steps for every facet of your life. We believe you bring your whole self to work and your whole self home, so why separate the two? You're going to walk away saying, "This is exactly what I needed."

We're providing creature comforts, like coffee in the morning, a mid-morning biscuit bar(!), lemonade and tea in the afternoon, and truly delicious food during the Happiest Hour — all complimentary. Just for fun, we'll also have fairy hair — because what's better than sparkle you can take home? And because this event was designed by working women, for working women, we'll also have an inviting and comfortable pump room for any breastfeeding moms.

Real Estate & Marketing Intensive

 Add-On Conference & Happy Hour

NOVEMBER 14, 2019  |  8:00 AM - 5:30 PM  |  5:30 PM-7:30 PM Off-site

Attendees must have a “Real Estate & Marketing Intensive” ticket to attend. 

Speakers and panelists are flying in from all over the country (and Canada!) to speak about real estate and marketing. We'll be covering topics like building your brand and team, building efficiency into your business, video marketing, Facebook marketing, influencer marketing, Instagram insider tips, and, of course, the all-important self-care.

Topics to dive into deeper during our mastermind sessions include advanced video marketing, how to leverage Facebook ads and groups, best practices for independent brokers, PR and earned media, client event ideas and strategies, using blogs and email newsletters to convert, and creating a healthy culture.

We'll be providing coffee in the morning and a few surprises along the way. There will be a cash bar open in the afternoon before our mastermind sessions, and you don't want to miss our Happiest Hour at Edward Teach Brewery in historic Downtown Wilmington. Edward Teach Brewery is a short walk from the hotel, and there we will have a visit from the brewery's mascots, miniature donkeys (yes, we are serious) named Friday and Ernie. Why donkeys? Well, last year we ended our conference with puppies, so we figured we'd just continue the small animal theme.

And, once again, we'll have a private, comfortable pump room for any breastfeeding moms.
