CRAFTCATION 2022 - sponsor information

Hi! Welcome Craftcation 2022 Sponsors! We are so excited for you to join us in April!

If we’ve yet to meet, I’m Nik V and I’ll be your point person throughout this planning process. I’m based out of Los Angeles, Calif. with various office hours but I do check emails at least once a day and aim to respond within 48 hours, thanks so much for your patience! 

This page will be your one-stop spot for all things Sponsor related so please bookmark it for easy access. Some sections may be empty or marked as Coming Soon as we are in the first phase of preparations but more information will be added regularly so keep checking back. I’ll also send emails as well so that nothing gets forgotten.

If I can answer any questions or be of help in any way, please feel free to email me directly – nik@dearhandmadelife.com.

LODGING

LOOKING TO STAY ON-SITE AT THE BEAUTIFUL VENTURA BEACH MARRIOTT? 
The hotel offers a restaurant and lounge, outdoor swimming pool, fitness center and easy access to the beach. 

ADDITIONAL LODGING OPTIONS: 

  • Waypoint Ventura: Vintage trailers near the beach. We’ve never stayed there but it’s SO cute!
  • The Pierpont Inn: a two-minute drive from the Marriott. We’ve stayed there before and we liked its quaint atmosphere, cottages and manicured grounds. It recently changed ownership and we haven’t been there since but they have great ocean views and a historical vibe.
  • The Crowne Plaza: It’s a three-minute drive to the Marriott. This was the former home of Craftcation. It’s right on the beach and they have lots of patio seating overlooking the ocean. Walkable to downtown Ventura.
  • The Best Western: Also a three-minute drive to the Marriott. This is a great old-school style motor inn that was renovated a few years ago to bring back the retro charm a la Schitt’s Creek. Walkable to downtown Ventura!

CONFERENCE SCHEDULE

Full conference schedule will be available in January 2022.

NOTE: If you are leading a workshop as part of your sponsorship package, please check this schedule for your workshop times and dates.
