The Beautiful Woman Inside and Out Conference 2023!
April 21-22, 2023

"Beautiful Woman Inside and Out" (BWIO) was created to empower, educate, and celebrate
women! We do just that with our daylong "over-the top" conference. Women leave feeling
uplifted, special, refreshed and very much pampered! BWIO has expanded over the years and
2023 is no different! This year we are adding to our Friday lineup with many optional events for
registrants, and you cannot sleep on A Beautiful Friday Girl’s Night Out! (see details below).
Schedule at a Glance (tentative)
The “main” event is on Saturday April 22nd; we added Friday “Girl’s Night” a few years ago as
a party before the conference and it is a huge hit! In 2023 we are EXPANDING Friday, and
these are optional events with no additional expense to our registrants, but you must pre-register
for them, and space is limited. This agenda is tentative and subject to change; we wanted to give
you a working overview of our over-the-top empowerment conference.

beginner look for? What is the difference in poster/print, lithograph and an original? What
about pricing? What works in my kitchen, my living room, what colors and types of art should I
look for and any other questions that you may have. This will be a real treat!
