This week, several members of our team have been in Las Vegas for the Wedding MBA Convention. This enlightening week is jam-packed with incredibly valuable information to assist wedding industry people in improving their businesses and better serving brides. It is always one of the must-attend national conferences in the wedding industry and with good reason!

The three-day event featured renowned industry experts as speakers, such as The Knot cofounder Carley Roney; Darcy Miller, editorial director of Martha Stewart Weddings; and top executives from several leading industry companies such as WeddingWire.com, Perfect Wedding Guide, and OffbeatBride.com.

- elegant wedding style that transcends time
- cultural nuances of ethnic weddings
- finding ways to continually ignite creativity
- tips on getting your clients’ weddings published
- international wedding trends
- understanding today’s brides and how to tailor services to them.
Just to name a few. Whew! Between the abundant breakouts, there were networking events, shows and tours.
