Essence Exchange



Join us for the 2024 Essence Exchange that has been COMPLETELY reimagined. This year’s event includes a new location in the Stockman’s Club of the Fort Worth Stockyards to allow for more networking and relationship building. We are thrilled to welcome back some of the veteran speakers that we know and love, while also bringing in an incredible lineup of new speakers from across the Western industry! Whether you are a corporate cowgirl or spend your days in the saddle, the Cowgirl Gathering Essence Exchange is where you need to be on May 11, 2024.
