Cat Writers’ Association Opens Early Registration for July 2020 Conference

Conference will be on on July 16-18, 2020.




(PRESS RELEASE) The Cat Writers’ Association will hold its 26th annual conference and awards banquet at the APA Hotel Woodbridge in Iselin, NJ, on July 16-18, 2020. The CWA is thrilled to be hosting its conference at this newly renovated, pet-friendly establishment. Its proximity to the NJ Convention and Exposition Center where the Cat Fanciers’ Association 84th annual Garden State Cat Show and Expo Cat Show and Expo will be held also makes it an ideal place to welcome cat writers and other cat-centric professionals.

CWA President Deb Barnes said the conference, open to both CWA members and non-members is an event filled with things to do, places to go, sessions to attend and much more! The CWA, a 25-plus-year nonprofit organization was founded with the intention of getting “good information” about cats out to the general public, and supporting the writers dedicated to that effort.

Barnes states, “Over the years, we have grown from a handful of members to an international, 250 members plus organization comprised of a wide variety of talent, supporting evolving mediums and platforms. Our annual conferences allow us to broaden our professions, translating to enhanced information that improves the lives of cats.”

While the conference will have a cat-centric tone, it’s an event anyone in the industries of communications, writing, blogging, publishing, social media and more could benefit from. The conference features sessions from renowned experts in the field on publishing, writing, photography, podcasts and branding in must-attend panels, seminars, and one-on-one meetings. A catalog of cat-centric attractions from a cat café to cat ears, catty awards to cat products is also planned, as well as a book-signing event open to the public at the conference hotel.

For a limited time only, Pre-Early Bird ticket discount pricing will be available at $99 for CWA members and $119 for non-members. The offer expires at midnight EST on Thursday, Dece. 5, 2019, with ticket prices increasing to $129 for CWA members and $159 after that. Each ticket includes a cat swag bag, admission to the brands exhibit area, appointment access to editors and publishers, all conference programming, all keynotes, official meals and snack breaks, access to all book signing and fundraising events and entry to the awards reception and banquet, which includes two-free drink tickets!
