Since 2013, WOW Summit has been empowering moms to raise happy, healthy families. Each year, moms, brands, and content creators convene for two days of learning and networking at different locations around the country. The result is a magical weekend filled with community, inspiration, and a shared mission to utilize the best methods and products to raise the next generation in the healthiest way.

To commemorate our tenth anniversary, we’re taking a look back through the years at some of our favorite milestones.

The Inaugural Moms Meet WOW Summit Kicked Off in Philadelphia

Close to home, our first event proved just how powerful meeting in person can be for our health and sustainably minded audience. They were able to talk to their favorite (and soon-to-be favorite) brands and try their products and services in the Exhibit Hall. Brand sponsors included Zevia, Applegate, and Dr. Praegers, amongst others. 

Moms were treated to talks from Dr. Lawrence D. Rosen and Dr. Drew Ramsey and learned how to raise curious kids, make allergy-friendly recipes, and incorporate homeopathy into their households. Our first influencer workshop also took place at this event with the session “Blogging with Brands 101.”

What moms liked most about the first WOW Summit:

“Learning about & being exposed to new products. The exhibit hall with lots of samples ( I never knew Dr.Praegers could be so yummy) and having the chance to win lots of different prizes. I felt very loved/blessed walking away from your conference with all the goodies that I did and my family has benefited greatly from all the samples as well.”

“Having the chance to interact with representatives of the various brands was a real plus. Their generosity was greatly appreciated. The banquet dinner was really good. The goodie bag…was amazing! The icing on the cake of a wonderful two days!” 

“Knowing I was with so many like-minded moms. It’s encouraging to know that the choices I am making for my family are good ones.”

For the Next 6 Years, We Made Our Way Around the Country

The conference grew each year as we traveled the country connecting with our national audience of health and sustainably minded moms. Over the years, more and more brands wanted to meet our passionate and influential community as we added new elements like speed networking in response to the growing sector of mom content creators. 

Always ahead of the curve in the better-for-you space, the events brought in big names like Dr. Bill Sears, Dr. Laura Markham, and Danny Seo to educate on the latest issues affecting parents. 

With a Strategic Pivot to a Digital Format During the Pandemic, WOW Summit Reached More Moms Than Ever

In the face of uncertainty in the early days of the pandemic, moms still needed our community and resources when meeting in person wasn’t an option. Through our virtual events on the Swapcard platform, WOW Summit brought the brands, networking, education, and community to our moms at home when they needed it most.
