About The Collective

The Collective is a carefully curated and interactive conference designed to highlight trends, innovations, and exciting happenings in Fashion, Food, and Travel.

Now more than ever, these 3 worlds go hand in hand. You can’t escape any social network without seeing a fashion blogger with a macaroon or a chic hotel advertisement without a stylishly dressed patron. Because FASHION, FOOD & TRAVEL are closely intertwined, businesses are leveraging all three to connect with their communities. The Collective Conference provides BRANDS a thoughtful space to connect, engage, and create relationships with sought after Trendsetters, Foodies, Influencers, Media Professionals and most importantly their Consumers.
