» Highlights from Wedding MBA 2014!

The WeddingWire team had a fantastic three days of education, meeting wonderful wedding Pros, and fun at the annual Wedding Merchants Business Academy 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada last week.

Missed the event or want to recap some of the best moments? Here are some of our favorite highlights from the conference!

Great education:

Our team enjoyed checking out all the great educational presentations for Wedding Pros, which included five 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 and Wed Talks throughout the conference.

Finally, be sure to check out our new Education Guide e-magazine for great tips to take your business to the next level including how to get more reviews, networking musts, marketing strategies, client tips and more.

Meeting wonderful wedding Pros:

Industry conferences such as Wedding MBA and WeddingWire World are a great opportunity to get to meet some of the fantastic wedding and event Pros we work with in person! Attendees stopped by WeddingWire’s main booth and lounge for one-on-one account support sessions, to say hello and meet team members, re-charge devices at our Power Stations, and learn more about WeddingWire.

After parties:

Every year, we host our annual WeddingWire party to bring together the team and attendees for an evening celebration to have fun and mix and mingle. This year, we had a blast at the Ling Ling Club, located within Hakkasan in the MGM Grand.

Also, we were excited to sponsor the Wedding MBA’s first ever networking Happy Hour event on Wednesday evening to have a drink and chat with new friends. A special thanks to our partners The Slow Motion Photo Booth and A Very Special Day for the fun pictures and awesome entertainment.

Fun surprises:

We love to share our “WeddingWire swag!” This year, each WeddingWire session had its own themed t-shirt, along with a bonus party t-shirt. Additionally, we had fun sharing our duel action stylus-pens, WeddingWire koozies, WeddingWire shades, brand bags, and more limited edition swag such as a teal hoodie and mobile charger.

To go along with our Back to the Future presentation theme, we also were excited to showcase a real Delorean in the Lounge, with special thanks to Delorean International Las Vegas NV, and a 3D Printer in action to showcase the future of tech.
