engage! 08:: the encore - Part I

Last week I attended an amazing event for wedding professionals. The business symposium was presented by the knowledgeable and talented Rebecca Grinnals and Kathryn Arce of Engaging Concepts - consultants to the luxury wedding industry.

I wanted to let the experience soak in before writing about it, but there still are not enough words to explain all that this conference was. The speakers included Carley Roney & David Liu of the Knot, Sylvia Weinstock, Wedding Bee founder Bee Kim, and more! One highlight was an inspirational talk by Simon T. Bailey - and a copy of his book! There was swag-a-plenty (that's another post)! Simon gave us homework and accountability partners. Here are my tablemates:

Jackie Zumaeta and Nikki Lindgren of Reunion Resort

But just as important was the time spent sharing with top-notch, like-minded wedding professionals from around the world. Space is extremely limited and the event sells out so put it on your calendar and book it as soon as dates are released for engage! 09.

The location was the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes.

Hope to see you there!
