» Highlights from Wedding MBA 2015!

The WeddingWire team had a great time at the annual Wedding MBA (Wedding Merchants Business Academy) 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada last week!

From lots of education to having fun with Pros, below are some of our favorite highlights from the conference! Plus, check out this awesome video recap from our friends at Big Dream Entertainment.

Great Education:

Our team enjoyed all the great educational presentations for Wedding Pros, which included four WeddingWire sessions hosted by WeddingWire CMO Sonny Ganguly and CEO Timothy Chi. Additionally, WeddingWire Education Experts Alan Berg, Andy Ebon, Kathryn Hamm and Meghan Ely all shared their expertise with engaging sessions throughout the conference.

Meeting Pros:

Industry conferences such as Wedding MBA and WeddingWire World are a great opportunities to get to meet some of the fantastic wedding and event Pros we work with in person! Attendees stopped by WeddingWire’s Lounge for one-on-one account support sessions, to say hello and meet team members, have some fun and collect some awesome swag, and learn more about WeddingWire.

Networking and ‘Playing Hard’:

Every year, we host our annual WeddingWire party Tuesday evening to bring together the team and attendees for a celebration to unwind after a long day of education and to mix and mingle. Our party this year was at the Ling Ling Club, located within Hakkasan in the MGM Grand. A big thank you to DJ Jason Jani of SCE Event Group who rocked the party and kept attendees on the dance floor all night!

Also, we were excited to sponsor the Wedding MBA’s Happy Hour event on Wednesday evening to have a drink and chat with new friends.

Lounge Fun:

We love to have fun at our WeddingWire Lounge, and of course to share our “WeddingWire swag!” with attendees! This year conference attendees who stopped by the Lounge got to: experience virtual reality goggles in action, play a game of corn hole, meet with a Customer Success representative, print a t-shirt with one of our eight custom designs, check out a 3D printer, and of course spin the WeddingWire Wheel of Fortune to collect great prizes like WeddingWire hoodies, selfie sticks, tiles, square payment cards, and more.

GayWeddings.com also had a WedWeCan themed booth! Attendees could show their support of marriage equality, and even take a selfie in front of the Supreme Court on the day that gay marriage was ruled legal!
