FoF: Counting down to NOLA ’18

dad2summit2017 Dad 2.0 Summit, Fatherhood on Friday

Attendees, Speakers, and Sponsors of Dad 2.017, lend us your ears! The sixth Dad 2.0 Summit is committed to history, and we couldn’t be more pleased, inspired, and downright jazzed about the entire experience. Thanks to each of you, whether you braved extraordinary travel disruptions and came to San Diego or just followed along online, for helping to promote the forward motion of fatherhood.

So let’s do it again!

The seventh Dad 2.0 Summit has been announced, and as we gear up for our triumphant return to New Orleans (and the exact stage where, in 2011, we first announced that the Dad 2.0 Summit would be a thing), we want to invite each of you to join us. We’ve sold nearly half of our tickets, so please watch this space (and Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) for when we reopen the ticket window, and launch the site for booking your Ritz-Carlton experience for only $199 per night. (WHAT?!?)
