When are the field trips?

All field trips take place on Thursday, May 30th from 8am to 4pm.

This year we have six sponsors hosting very special experiences throughout Long Beach and the Los Angeles area. Scroll down to check them all out!

Who can attend?

Field trips are only for influencers and/or creative entrepreneurs with an actively updated Instagram, blog and/or YouTube channel and who have a ticket to attend this year's Summit (sorry, not available for any Industry passes or Wellness Day-only tickets).

How do I sign up?

Check out below the descriptions for each field trip. Then go to this #WeAllGrow Summit 2019 Field Trips Sign Up form and rank your favorites from one to six, with one being the trip you want to attend the most.

Am I guaranteed a spot?

If you have an Influencer/Entrepreneur registration for Summit, then you’re guaranteed a spot. What we can’t at all guarantee is that it will be one of your top choices.

Field trip assignments will be made based on your interest, as well as your content's relevance to a sponsor’s product(s) and/or message. So please read the descriptions carefully to make sure you’re a good fit (i.e.: Baby Dove is focused only on connecting with parenting influencers with small children covering lifestyle and/or parenting content).

We might also have more signups than available spaces on some trips. Since each experience has been carefully crafted by the sponsor, spots are limited to the capacity each can offer.

I can’t wait to find out which field trip I’ll be going on! When will I know?

Confirmations will be sent via email from vanessa@weallgrowlatina.com no later than May 24th.

Be mindful that our team is working diligently to make sure that #WeAllGrow Summit is an unforgettable weekend, so please do not email unless absolutely necessary. Definitely not to request special placement.

We do invite you to post any questions on the Summit’s Facebook group here or our official app.

Now, let’s dive in!

Baby Dove Presents Moms & Mimosas

We know there are no perfect moms, just REAL ones and research shows that new moms feel pressure to fit into a ‘perfect mom’ ideal, creating anxiety for them as they figure out their roles as parents.

Baby Dove knows there is no right or wrong way to be a parent, and we want to encourage all parents to trust their way. Baby Dove invites 30 attendees to join us for brunch for an intimate discussion about pregnancy, birthing experiences and how the media can impact your portrayal of motherhood.

Be ready to leave Hotel Maya promptly at 11:00 am and be back at the hotel by 1:30 pm.

#WeAllGrow Summit 2017 Field Trips

Six of our amazing #WeAllGrow Summit sponsors kicked the weekend off with some absolutely incredible field trips for our influencers. Neutrogena, Disney Princess "Dream Big, Princess," Disney Parks, Mazda, Red Bull and Long Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau took attendees all throughout the Long Beach and Los Angeles areas for some truly one-of-a-kind experiences.

Neutrogena

Neutrogena treated some influencers to a private beachfront home in gorgeous Malibu. The team pampered our ladies with makeovers courtesy of Elizabeth UlloaErick Cuesta and their team of makeup artists. They also learned about the anti-aging benefits of suncare from Dermatologist Dr. Baum and had some fun doing one-on-one photoshoots. 

Disney Princess "Dream Big, Princess"

A group of 30 influencers ventured all the way up to the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. There, they received a tour of the lot and saw an exclusive first-look at the new live-action Beauty and the Beast movie, as well as Tangled: Before Ever After. They were treated to lunch in the fifth floor executive room and were extra surprised when Bob Iger, chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company, dropped by to say ¡Hola!

Disney Parks

Disney Parks came back as a field trip sponsor for the second year in a row and treated influencers to the magic that is Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. The ladies enjoyed rides, macarons, ice cream, sisterhood and more! 

Mazda

Mazda wanted influencers to get behind the wheels of their cars and explore the open road of California - and that's just what they did! Twenty influencers hopped into the newest line of Mazda vehicles, ranging from cars to SUVs, and drove along the California Coastal Escape to their destination: Terranea Oceanfront Resort. They were treated to a delicious lunch completed with wine and other goodies and enjoyed various relaxing activities together before heading back to Hotel Maya.

Red Bull

Red Bull got our influencers' heart rates up at the Red Bull High Performance Center in Santa Monica. They met with lead trainer Per Lundstam, who joined Red Bull in 2010 and has also held roles within different ski federations, including the US Ski & Snowboard Association and the Swedish Ski Federation. Attendees not only learned about the brand but also experienced a high intensity workout, followed by cool down exercises, and then enjoyed a fulfilling lunch courtesy of Red Bull.

Long Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau

Long Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau wanted to make sure our influencers got to see all the beauty throughout our host city. They swept 90 attendees off their feet with helicopter rides, a relaxing boat tour, an exclusive visit to the Aquarium of the Pacific and an outing at the Museum of Latin American Art.

#WeAllGrow Summit started with several magical Field Trips filled with enough moments of awe to last a lifetime. Dolphins included!

Our sponsors were so excited to meet everyone and connect with the influencers who have been killing it online (Yes, you!). Several of them joined us in organizing an unforgettable day of tours, sightseeing, relaxation and a few mimosas! Because everyone knows you can’t have a fab day without a bit of champagne. #WeAllGrow sponsors also know that the only way to create long-lasting relationships is by illustrating the mission behind their brands with meaningful experiences, which are rooted in empowerment, cultura y familia.

Neutrogena

Select attendees were treated with a cruise to the Catalina Islands for a day of beach-front relaxation, a healthy, beautifying lunch, refreshing mimosas, and yoga under a gorgeous sunlit sky (with SPF, of course!). With scenic views in every corner and a beautiful dolphin sighting to complete the day, Neutrogena’s #VerasQueEsPosible mantra came to life.

Transitions + VisionWorks

Transitions and VisionWorks kept the day stylish with a fun tour of Los Angeles with hosts, celebrity eyewear designers Coco + Breezy! Attendees learned all about the twins’ humble beginnings in the eyewear industry and connected over a delicious vegan Mexican lunch at the popular LA restaurant, Gracias Madre. Coco and Breezy set the tone for the rest of the day as they DJ’d from their phones on the tour bus and danced with attendees as they headed back to the studio for their very own photoshoot with Transitions + VisionWorks. Latina bloggers and creators were treated to a styling session and finished off their look with a chic pair of Transitions lenses from VisionWorks, perfect for their professional street style photoshoot.

Long Beach Conventions and Visitor Bureau

As if the #WeAllGrow Summit and Latina Bloggers Connect teams didn’t suffer enough FOMO (we had meetings in lieu of trips), a group of over 40 attendees got to take in the beautiful sites of our host city, Long Beach. They started the day off with a boat tour that revisited the history of Long Beach’s scenic harbor. They were able to sit back and chat with each other while enjoying a breathtaking view of the city’s skyline and world famous Queen Mary. Shortly after their boat tour they headed to the Museum of Latin American Art located in the East Village Arts District of Long Beach. While there, Latina Bloggers had the opportunity to view MOLAA At Twenty 1996-2016 Exhibition, an extensive collection of U.S. Latino and Chicano art. A short bus ride over next led them to the Aquarium of the Pacific for a delicious lunch with a view and a VIP behind-the-scenes guided tour of the aquarium. Lastly, it wouldn’t have been a true tour of Long Beach without visiting the historic Queen Mary. Attendees wrapped up their daylong tour of Long Beach with a guided tour of the legendary ship.

YouTube

There’s nothing quite like visiting the YouTube Space in Los Angeles to really bring the power of its influence to life. #LatinaCreators were excited to see and experience the place they’ve virtually known and loved for so long! Guests were once again blown away by the size of YouTube Space LA and the amount of resources available to those who wish to create a channel. Many came back from their trip ready to step up their game by perfecting their SEO, upping their video content and making better use of YouTube’s analytics to further understand their audiences.

Mazda

Mazda knows that #DrivingMatters, especially when you’re cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway. Attendees drove down Ocean Drive to Huntington Beach Pier in style in the brand new CX-5 before heading to the award-winning Parker’s Lighthouse for a seafood lunch in Long Beach. The day ended with a tour of the beautiful and culturally rich Museum of Latin American Art.

And, of course, take a few fun pit stops along the way! Next, we’ll loop back around to Long Beach for lunch at Parkers’ Lighthouse restaurant, where we’ll enjoy spectacular views of the Queen Mary and Long Beach harbor. And, finally, we’ll get back on the road to the East Arts District for a docent-guided tour through the Museum of Latin American Art—the only museum in the U.S. dedicated to modern and contemporary Latin American art.
