Beyond the Love- One of the best cons -EVAR!!!

Overall the event was a huge success and I highly recommend this one to everyone.  Ive been going to cons for over 20 years and this is by far one of the best organized and best executed events in the country.  I will be back next year.  I hope you will come too.

The “Press Is In” and the Beyond The Love Conference was AMAZING!

Wow! Just WOW! Seriously I am truly just blown away by the awesomeness that was the Beyond The Love conference this past weekend in Columbus, Ohio. I gotta say, it exceeded my expectations in pretty much every way imaginable.

Feedback From Attendees

Amazing event! It is overwhelmingly wonderful to have a space where I can hold my same-sex partner’s hand, and feel entirely safe. The resources and education provided are excellent, even for people with extensive poly experience. I’ve come every year, and will continue to do so.

If you’re *thinking* about a ethically non-monogamous relationship, come to Beyond the Love. You’ll meet amazing people and hear new ideas.

This was our first BTL. It was a great experience. We learned a lot and will definitely be attending next year!

We had a great weekend hanging out with poly folks and learning new ways to navigate love

An amazing event to meet other Polyfolk for support and community! There is something for everyone from newbie to organizer.

Unquestionably a better facility. I like that you are taking growth slowly… and this facility seems able to host an event considerably larger than this was.

So much fun to be surrounded by so many wonderful Poly people.

An excellent event for people looking to improve themselves and well as their relationships, however “relationship” is defined to that individual.

This event is a great introduction for people who are new to polyamory, and it’s a great place for more experienced people to share their stories and compare notes with like-minded others.

I’ve been twice now and BTL clearly grows and improves each year. I find the panels very helpful and in depth. Looking forward to seeing what next year has to offer.

This was my first Beyond the Love and I’m already planning on going to next year. Everyone was warm and inviting, while the classes brought new information to light.

What an incredible time finding my people, my community.

No matter if you are Poly 101 or are eligible for the Poly Lifetime Achievement Award, this premier high energy conference is the one to attend!

BTL was absolutely amazing! The best personal growth & relationship development conference out there!

My only problem is there is always some more classes I would have liked to attend. But I understand that will always be the case with so many meaningful options; and I imagine it will keep me coming back or years to come.

As amazing as the entire Beyond the Love event is; to me to be truly immersed in people sharing the same lifestyle; the same problems; fears and insecurities is the most amazing and energizing part of the weekend.
