Last week we talked about the personal finance conference coming up in October, FinCon2013. Some of you may also be interested in the Canadian Personal Finance Conference, CPFC2013, that is scheduled for September 21st-22nd in Toronto, Ontario. This will be the third year for CPFC and many of the well know personal finance bloggers and writers will be there.
Friday night of the conference is an optional social night for those who get in earlier that day and would like some time to meet others and socialize before the conference begins. The conference will run all day Saturday and Sunday with a speed networking event Saurday evening. As of right now tickets on the website are sold out but there is a place where you can request to be added to the waitlist. For events like these there are usually tickets that come available as it gets closer from those who planned on going but end up not being able to attend after all.
