What to Wear

We will be in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia during February where it will be roughly 58 degrees. Our vibe will be casual and fun! However, keep in mind there will be other eligibles there… so on that note casually dress to impress. ;) We will also have merch on site that you can buy and change into if you want, so dress accordingly!

Where to stay

A huge part of the In Person HOD Conference 2023 will be COMMUNITY. We highly recommend considering staying at one of our suggested hotels and connecting with others before the event.

The hotels we are recommending are around the Midtown Atlanta Area. We recommend this area because it’s packed with many fun things to do pre and post conference. We don’t want the mingling to happen just while we are at the conference!

We have a HODC Hotel Block at the Canopy by Hilton Hotel!!! Click HERE to reserve under our hotel block. We highly recommend staying here for community FUN!

You can join our HOD FB community where we will have a private event for those attending in person who want to coordinate details like Hotel.

We just got word there is a CHEER competition in Atlanta the same weekend of conference. We recommend booking your accommodations ASAP as hotels do sell out entirely.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a HYBRID event?
Right Arrow

This conference is a HYBRID event! This gives attendees the option to either come watch the content and meet other singles in REAL LIFE while still giving online attendees the option to join online from the comfort of their own home. Here’s how it will work: 

LIVE Sessions:

To create a conference feel for all attendees, on Saturday the 18th all sessions throughout the day will be LIVE STREAMED for all online guests. Live streamed sessions include worship/ entertainment, Q&A panels, and all guest speakers.

Meet Singles:

Both online and in-person attendees will have the opportunity to meet other singles.

For online attendees, your ticket includes access to our fully online 2nd day of the conference complete with our Online Singles Party.

For In person attendees, your ticket includes an in-person Singles Party that will cap out Day 2 of the conference.

Continued Content:

We are providing you with a LOT of content (because we love you that much) and it will likely take more processing … which is why you will have access to ALL content (and chats with attendees) for 3 months from the conference launch!

We will also provide a digital workbook so you can continue watching and processing through the content.

There will also be multiple opportunities for conference attendees to continue connecting with the HOD Community through our  conference app as well as additional resources we will be providing (app launching a few weeks PRIOR to conference)
