The conference provides a mix of general and specialized topics, as well as a blend of activities that involve either big or small groups.

Tickets are available for purchase online. So even if you're not based in the US, you can still attend as long as you purchase a ticket.. The ticket costs $279 and provides access to all of the breakout sessions and workshops, plus the Posh Party on Day 2.
Each ticket also comes with a goodie bag and complimentary breakfast and lunch.
The Pros and Cons of attending this Posh event
Now that you know the basic information, it's time to drill down to the details that could help you decide whether to purchase a PoshFest 2022 ticket or not.
First, let's consider the upsides:
There's a wealth of insights and insider tips in store for you. any successful entrepreneur would tell you, learning should never stop. You should invest in upgrading your tools of the trade that help fuel your productivity, so why not invest in your knowledge? You are the brains behind your reselling business, after all.
Based on the impressive line-up of PoshFest 2022, you can expect to learn from different formats. There will be a panel talk, smaller roundtables that are more intimate, and one-on-one consultations.
The afternoon breakout sessions and workshops cover a wide range of interesting and exciting topics for resellers, depending on where you are in your Poshmark journey.
There's a session tackling the building blocks of a thriving Poshmark business. Another is about harnessing the power of data and insights. For those planning to up their content creation game, there's a workshop about producing social media clips and how to leverage them to promote your business.
There are plenty of opportunities to network. you're building your Posh circle from scratch or simply widening it, PoshFest 2022 is the right place for you. Aside from the sessions solely dedicated to networking, you can easily meet new contacts throughout the event as it is designed to be conducive to socializing. Not to mention the fun and festive evening parties you wouldn't want to miss!
Experience the Poshmark culture in a couple of days. If you're new to Poshmark and would like to be a successful seller (and even a Posh Ambassador), PoshFest 2022 is the fastest way to immerse in and embrace the platform's unique, vibrant culture.
Hear updates straight from the Poshmark think tanks themselves. CEO and founder Manish Chandra will reveal some exciting news for Poshers, while the product and development team will unveil new tools and features during the highly anticipated Hackathon session.
Witness a fun new segment. What's also notable about this year's Posh Fest is the addition of the Secondhand Style Fashion Show during the Posh Party. Here, Poshers will strut down the runway wearing clothes from their closets!
Now, we move on to the downsides of attending Poshfest 2022:
- The relatively steep ticket price. While some could painlessly cough up almost 300 dollars for a two-day event, others may think twice about it. Note that paying half of the amount is not possible if you intend to participate in either Day 1 or Day 2 only.
- There are other expenses to account for. Even if you can afford the ticket price, you need to take into consideration other incidental expenses that do add up. Depending on how far you are from the venue, you might have to shell out money for accommodations, airfare, and food beyond the complimentary meals.
- The talks and workshops may not offer anything new to you. If you're the type who likes to attend conferences and take online courses, there's a chance you already know most of what will be discussed at PoshFest 2022. If you've attended a Posh Fest in the past, you might also get bored listening to certain areas of the event, such as hearing about successful Poshers' reselling journey.
The list above serves as a guide only. Of course, the decision would depend entirely on you and factors such as your resources, as well as your goals and priorities as a seller.
The daily Posher habits that matter
PoshFest is a great annual event to participate in, especially if you are planning to widen your network and boost your presence on the platform. But just as important as this big-ticket event are the daily habits you have in place as a Poshmark seller.
