Early in the planning of The 21st Century Bride we asked: What kind of event would make a difference in the lives of our participants long term? What will make this event invigorating, meaningful, exciting? How will wedding related retailers, manufacturers and vendors get the most out of this?
When a person participates in a traditional event he or she:
1) Is often exposed to information overload
2) Becomes exhausted or uncomfortable as the day unfolds
3) Cannot recall much of what they learn
4) Seldom networks with the other people at the event in a productive way
5) Doesn't implement the ideas delivered
6) Thus, their business does not experience the benefits expected
We've merged our creativity to bring you something wonderfully different. Take part in the great wedding conversation... an invigorating conversation, where our speakers and guests share important information in an lively, meaningful fashion. Have fun and expect the unexpected. Leave feeling positive, fulfilled, and empowered with take-aways you can implement. And leave your notebook and lunch bag behind. Food and beverages are included, and you will have easy access to all the information covered once you go home.
