CAN’T MAKE IT TO ATLANTA?

WE GET IT, LIFE HAPPENS.

WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED.

Grab a Digital Access pass when it becomes available July 2019 & it never expires!

Let me just say this! Its 100% with the money...It changed our entire company around! .....it was incredible! I was so bored in my business before it...After the summit and using what we learned from it, we went from 5000 followers to now almost 17,000 online! We doubled if not did 5 times over each month than we did the previous year and I'm still getting so much from it!

Taylor Jones, The Tiny Closet Boutique

I joined the boutique world in 1988 and have been hustling for 30 years now. This entire community and last year's Summit not only inspired me, but I learned so much! In a world where things are constantly changing, the community you and your team are building is invaluable! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Can't wait for June!!

Zoe Neuner, Look Charmed

Still have questions about attending, speaking or sponsoring?
Let’s chat over email or check out our FAQs below.

WHERE IS THE LOCATION OF THE BOUTIQUE SUMMIT 2019?

The Boutique Summit will be held June 10-11 in Atlanta, Georgia, with a VIP Pre-Party on the evening of June 9th. We will be at AmericasMart, home of Atlanta Apparel, for the entire event.

SHOULD I ATTEND THIS INSTEAD OF ATLANTA JUNE APPAREL MARKET?

No way, Jose! While you will get personable interaction with tons of fabulous brands, this event should not replace Market in your itinerary, which begins the day after The Boutique Summit. Join us for Market tours with Atlanta Apparel!

WILL THE BOUTIQUE SUMMIT ALWAYS BE IN THE SAME LOCATION?

Although our plans may change, we hope to circulate this event to different cities each year.

I'M NOT A BOUTIQUE OWNER YET - IS THIS EVENT FOR ME?

Congrats on beginning to think about this new adventure! We are excited that you want to become a #BoutiqueBoss, but The Boutique Summit may not be the place to start. Although we have different sessions to cater to different business levels, there won’t be any talks about how to open a boutique. There’s a variety of resources on our platform at The Boutique Hub & hopefully, you can join us at future Boutique Summits!

WHAT TYPE OF TOPICS WILL BE DISCUSSED?

Our team is working like busy bees to bring you a wide range of topics from Open to Buy Plans, to Instagram & everything in between. We heard your feedback from last year so our goal is to bring in speakers that will give you actionable items to use to grow your business on all levels!

I'M A BRAND OWNER - IS THIS APPLICABLE FOR ME?

Absolutely! We will have a variety of sessions catering specifically to brands, and you don’t want to miss out on networking with boutique owners!

CAN MY REGISTRATION BE REFUNDED IF MY PLANS CHANGE?

Tickets are non-refundable but can be sold or transferred at original cost in our Facebook event.

If you sell your ticket, please fill out this form to let us know. No exchanges will be honored after April 15, 2019!

I CAN'T ATTEND - WILL THERE BE DIGITAL ACCESS?

You know it! Digital Tickets will be available to purchase after Live Tickets are released. The videos will become accessible in July 2019 & never expire!

CAN I BRING MY SPOUSE/PARTNER?

Of course! If your spouse would like to attend The Summit, you will want to purchase a Co-Owner/Employee Registration for them. If they only want to come to the Tuesday night Banquet, those individual tickets can also be purchased.

ARE CHILDREN ALLOWED TO COME TO THE SUMMIT?

Due to our anticipation of selling out, children are welcome to attend the banquet as long as they can sit on your lap; otherwise, an additional registration and/or Tuesday Banquet ticket will need to be purchased in order for them to attend. However, we will not be offering any Kid’s Meal options at our events.

WHERE SHOULD I STAY?

If you’re ready to snag your hotel room before they all get booked up, we’ve got you covered below:

  1. Go to AmericasMart’s Hotel Reservations Page
  2. Select “June Atlanta Apparel”
  3. When redirected to onPeak, use the drop-down menu to select “Boutique Hub Summit”
  4. In the password field, add BHUBS19
  5. Select your dates & you’ll see the two available hotels.
  6. Book right through onPeak!

These hotels that are blocked are in walking distance of AmerciasMart, but there are also several other hotels in the area that are just a few blocks from our venue!

Looking to split a room or Airbnb with someone? Make a post in our Facebook event!

WHAT AIRPORT SHOULD I FLY INTO?

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL)

ARE THERE EVENTS HAPPENING ON SUNDAY, JUNE 9th?

Yes, but these events are only available for our speakers & VIP ticket holders.

DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?

Food, beverages, and snacks will be provided. We recommend bringing something to take notes, such as a notebook/pen, iPad/tablet, or laptop. Don’t forget to pack your positive attitude, and leave your Drama Llama in its pen at home.

IS THERE A DRESS CODE?

Wear what makes you feel comfortable & beautiful! AmericasMart can often be a little chilly so you may want to bring a light jacket.

For the #BoutiqueBoss Banquet, we encourage you to dress up in cocktail or formal wear. The focus of this banquet is celebrating YOU so wear what makes you feel beautiful!
