3 Convincing Reasons to Attend Wedding MBA ’16

Conferences, Entrepreneurship

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, Wedding MBA registration is live — and the price goes up on Saturday! The best three days of the educational year are less than three months away. Are you ready to sign up and attend the most epic Wedding MBA ever? Perhaps your boss (might that be you?) needs some persuading to agree to send you to Wedding MBA? The fact that an overwhelming majority of attendees recommend it to others is not convincing enough? Are the sessions, training, and over-the-top events really worth the cost and the time away from your desk? The answer is yes, yes, and… YES!

I could tell you that Wedding MBA will elevate your ROI, but any conference you attend should already do that. Let me help you out with three ways to convince your boss (or perhaps your inner naysayer) that a trip to Las Vegas this October is in the cards for you and your team:

1. “There are unlimited learning opportunities at Wedding MBA.”

After the success of last year’s Profit First presentation, the show producers invited me back and I will deliver two seminars in 2016. At the core of Wedding MBA are the vast number of amazing learning opportunities. The wedding community comes together to learn about new trends, dying trends, share best practices, and grow their businesses through 140+ expert-led sessions. This includes the new “Ask An Expert” bonus session on Monday morning followed by an entire half-day of breakout sessions catered to your interests and areas of expertise.

2. “There are networking opportunities at every corner.”

Wedding MBA is one of the largest gatherings of the wedding and event professional community, and it’s your opportunity to make connections and share best practices. Whatever your role, company size or specialty, the community is ready to share their knowledge, skills, or even just a wedding cocktail with you. Relationships are built morning and night throughout the event, in the hallways, the monorail, at parties, and during interactive sessions. Wedding MBA is designed to connect you with people you can learn from, from the experts on stage to the community prior to your peers during many of the networking events sponsored throughout the conference.

Plus, the Wedding MBA experience doesn’t end with the conference. Many online and offline communities are created to continue networking opportunities and the sharing of knowledge and information.

3. “We will be motivated and inspired to perform better.”

Every year Wedding MBA hosts sessions that inspire and engage (my personal favorite each year is the opening session from tech gurus Sonny & Timothy at WeddingWire — this year’s theme is The Wizard of Oz!). These seminars will have you thinking different. Still don’t believe me? Check out last year’s main stage highlight video and feel the power of Wedding MBA.

Double your pleasure, double your fun.

As I mentioned earlier, I am delivering two sessions this year. Although times are still subject to change, Tuesday I’ll be doing a full session on the 7 Behavioral Triggers of Instantly Becoming an Industry Authority (listed in the program as Divergent). I’ll dig deep into why better is not better, rather different is better. Then join me Thursday morning for a shorted WED Talk called The Shawshank Tax Redemption, where I’ll deliver a focused talk to get you through that next quarterly or annual tax payment without breaking a sweat.

So talk to your head honcho and register today to secure your spot for the can’t miss event of the year!
