House Sitting Conference - Travel Longer For Less

An event co-hosted by House Sitting World & House Sitting Magazine

House sitting is growing as a way to travel differently and explore more slowly, with the emphasis on a trust-based exchange. This benefits you, the home and pet owners, and the pets themselves! Our 2 day conference, the first of its kind, will connect you with long term house sitting professionals who are passionate about travelling and living differently. Additionally they have all succeeded at saving money on travel and holiday accommodation while living this alternative lifestyle.

Throughout this full weekend, you'll be kept inspired and informed with relevant talks, tutorial sessions, and industry panels. Discover what works for success when just starting out, and leave this conference with all the tools you need to make house sitting the next big travel experience in your life!
