The Reset Conference began in 2014 when Rebekah Albaugh and Kellie Penn were drawn to the need for a photography and creatives conference in the midwest. The first 3 conferences were held in their hometown of Champaign, Illinois and quickly grew enough that they needed to expand to a bigger market with a more accessible airport. Indianapolis became the latest “hub” for the now national Reset Conference and the 2017 conference was definitely the biggest and best yet. We are looking forward to topping last year in scope, size, and overall content at this year’s conference. We know many of you hear regularly from the Reset staff on the Facebook page and Facebook group, but we wanted to give you a closer more in-depth look at those of us behind the scenes. When you see us at Reset 2018, definitely say hi. We like warm hugs!!
