Last week I spent a couple of days in Vegas with a couple thousand fellow wedding professionals. This is my view of the stage from the morning sessions on day one. On stage dressed like Marty McFly from the first Back to the Future movie is Sonny, one of the creators of WeddingWire.
What is Wedding MBA, why did I go, and how will this help my clients? Good questions. The Wedding MBA (Merchant Business Association), holds a conference every year for wedding professionals from across the country and from around the world to come and be educated on the latest trends in the world of weddings. The conference is filled with two and a half days of talks in addition to all of the vendors that have stations set up in the conference center.
Sessions I personally attended and got some helpful information on ranged from legal information about contracts, to helpful apps to better run my business. Today is the first day I have been able to sit down and really think about everything I learned, it was enough that it will take me weeks to implement everything that I learned.
Some of the speakers included Alan Berg, Sonny and Tim from WeddingWire, people from The Knot, and Perfect Wedding Guide, and many others.
Wedding Professionals that attend this conference show that they are dedicated the wedding industry and making sure that they are in touch with today's brides and grooms.
I am out of the office this week and will respond to your inquires promptly.
Well that goes without saying and I could have just out that in an auto responder. What I really want to share is what I am doing while away. Currently I am typing this post on my iPad using my iPhone as a hot spot cause the wifi in this hotel is NOT free. The reason I am here? I am in Vegas at the Wedding MBA conference. Held every year it is an educational opportunity for wedding professionals like my self to learn how to run a better business for both ourselves as the business owners and our clients.
Day one was great and I learned a lot which I will post later when I have the time to give credit to the presenters in a more detailed post (and from my computer so I can type faster).
Although I may be out of the office I am still reading your emails and inquires. This is the mobile world and I am always ready to start working with you on your wedding video.
