On August 13, 2016, Oahu Planner Girls hosted our very first Oahu Planner Con. The event was held at Kaka’ako Agora from 10:00am-4:00pm. Vendors began setting up and people began lining up for OPG Kits as early as 8:30am.
We had 25 vendors at the event. Yes, twenty five!
There were planner shops, scrapbook shops, food and drink stations, clothing booths and much, much more.
Once we opened up, people started flowing in. We had all sorts of people come through, babies, children, teens, moms, dads, grandmas, planners and non planners. Throughout the day people came and went. Shops sold tons of products and we even had one shop sell out, how amazing is that?
As people came in and paid their admission, they were given a raffle ticket. We pulled numbers on the hour, every hour and gave away over 25 prizes throughout the event. At the end of the day, we tallied up the tickets and we had over 400 raffle tickets left. We sold a few tickets during the event and did not count the numbers we pulled while calling out prizes therefore, we estimated close to 400 people came through.
Throughout the day we had a few workshops set up as well. We started off at 10:15 am with Tyra of @tjt.designs. She hosted two workshops, the other was at 11:15 am. Next we had a giveaway by Cinch from 12:30-1:30 pm. They gave away a Long Camel Obi belt to everyone who followed them on Instagram. At 2:00 pm we had Michelle of xo.mamaplans stop by to talk story with those who purchased our VIP Package. After that we finished the event with a resin charm workshop from Joy of The Joy of Crafting at Ben Franklin.
