Attending the Connecting for Change Conference is a one of a kind experience. Everyone who attends takes something different from the experience, but something that everyone gains from the experience is the feeling that they are a part of a collective whole working to create positive change in the world.
Attracting over 5,000 people of all backgrounds, creed and class over a 2-day period, we strive to provide an eclectic mix of vendors – from solar panel providers to artists who use recycled materials – there is truly something for everyone at Connecting for Change. Our state-of-the-art exhibitor tents are not only open to conference attendees but to the general public as well, nestled strategically in the heart of New Bedford’s historic downtown district.
Here’s what a few of last year’s exhibitors shared about their experiences at CFC:
“We had a great time… and connected with a lot of interesting people and organizations doing great and inspirational things. We’ll definitely be back next year.”
“We thoroughly enjoyed Connecting for Change! What an amazing, world-class gathering. You all do revolutionary work.”
Early Bird pricing ends August 31st, 2014!
