Podfecta is a series of local and regional events centered around the art and business of podcasting. The primary purpose of Podfecta is to help podcasters of all types (hosts, engineers, editors, etc) reach bigger audiences and create more impact with their podcasts.
Podfecta events are independently organized and based around a framework designed to connect and educate podcasters and others in the podcasting industry. These events are both inclusive and exclusive -- we don't discriminate based on podcast topic (or anything else), but attendance at individual Podfecta events is strictly limited to 100 people in order to foster community.
What To Expect At A Podfecta Event
Podcasting-specific presentations by experts who are active in the podcasting industry.
Podcasting-related panels designed to show you what's working now in the areas of podcast marketing, promotion, production, and audience-building.
You'll walk away from every Podfecta event with new business-focused relationships as well as quality friendships with other podcasters.
