If you missed our initial coverage of FinCon15, you’ll need to know that we are not actually in Charlotte. We’re enjoying the fall up in Alaska. But don’t worry. We’re pretty sure we’ve gotten the entire story from FinCon15 based entirely on #FinCon15 posts on Twitter. We’ll fill you in on what you may have missed:
In fact, so many people were talking, you had to wear headphones just to get people to STOP talking to you long enough for you to listen to someone else talk!
The talking crowds spilled over into meal times. Even the guy who started FinCon had to sit on the floor!
FinCon swag included selfie sticks.
…which went great with selfie lights. We’re into selfies at FinCon. Obvs.
So many great guests attended FinCon. Even the Blue Man Group sent a representative from their Financial Blog (called something like “Budgeting Blue Man Blog”… clever, original). I can only imagine his keynote was highly entertaining (I hear the first three rows had to wear garbage bags to avoid getting paint on their attire!).
Some people were clearly happier to be at FinCon than others:
Things quickly became unhinged at FinCon. Some people were getting all hopped up on room service (yes, I favorited this. Mainly that chocolate one.):
Others started sneaking out to drink:

#FinConPickupLines became a thing. This one was my favorite:
Even FinCon Freddie cut loose!
The parties got wild…
All that partying led to zombie-photo-bombings:
And by Sunday morning, everyone had apparently turned into zombies:
And just like that, FinCon15 was over.
Everyone detoxed in different ways. Some hit the gym:
Some found solace in barf bags:
While others grabbed all the freebies and got the heck out of town!
I look forward to #FinCon16!
I’ll definitely be present on Twitter if not in person!
