I just returned from 3 days in Las Vegas and I wanted to tell you about my trip! I attended the Wedding MBA (Wedding Merchants Business Academy) 9th Annual Convention. It was my first time at this convention as well as my first ever trip to Las Vegas! What an adventure I had! I attended 18 seminars over 2 1/2 days and enjoyed seeing several wedding businesses in the trade fair, such as Wedding Wire, The Knot and many more. Over 2,400 wedding professionals from all over the country attended. There were wedding planners, DJ’s, caterers, photographers, videographers and others and of course Florists! It was fun to meet so many different people from all over the country dedicated to helping Brides achieve their dream weddings!
The seminars covered topics such as wedding trends for 2013, mobile websites/social media, hiring a great team, learning more about “Gen-Y” brides, planning for success and more! Two of my favorite seminars were “Blog Busters” where we learned about content, tips & tricks for writing blogs and also “Sunny Side Up” – Where we learned ten (actually 20+) things we can do to have a better day! A lot of things we already know but good reminders! Examples – Wake up early and exercise, eliminate distractions and keep focused, release yourself from envy and one of my favorites – have date nights! Obviously a great topic for everyone not just wedding vendors!
I had a great time and I was really glad that I was able to go! Now I’m ready to get back to work and help the brides that have chosen Weddings by Jennifer to be their florist!!
Here are a few pictures from my trip!
