Last week and for the third consecutive year, I joined over 2000 wedding professionals at the 2012, Wedding MBA Conference in Las Vegas, NV. Those professionals came from across the country and from around the world and they represented every segment of the wedding industry from wedding planners, photographers, DJs, florists, decorators, videographers, officiates, caterers, gown shop operators and a host of others.
The Wedding MBA is the largest wedding conference in the nation and features nationally recognized speakers from every facet of the world of weddings and business who present expert information and advice on everything from the latest wedding trends to marketing and branding to producing a wedding experience that is second to none for the happy couple and their guests.
I had the pleasure of learning from representatives of The Knot, Perfect Wedding Guide, Wedding Wire, MyWedding.com, OffBeatBride.com, Martha Stewart Weddings to name a few and from a number of big-name wedding professionals who are not only “rock stars” in the wedding industry, but whose creativity, skill, talent and extraordinarily high level of quality service are sought after by couples everywhere.
It was, without a doubt, the most incredibly informative two and a half days, filled with the most up-to-date information available with an added glimpse at how brides will be planning their weddings in the not too distant future. There is no better investment I can make than one that allows me to learn and grow as a wedding professional and business owner and one that elevates the expertise and service I can provide to my wedding couples.
