And so it begins...With just one box!

This December luxury wedding planners and professionals from around the world will once come together at the Engage! 13 conference.  This winter's summit begins in only 24 days (yikes!) and is set to take place at The Montelucia in Scottsdale, Arizona.  According to the engage!13 website:

Intimate by design, and limited to no more than 250 attendees and speakers each, engage! gathers many of the ‘best of the best’ in the wedding industry. engage! events seek to offer something not found in other conferences. Careful attention is paid to creating an intimate atmosphere of effortless networking in a non-client, non-competitive environment—allowing for an open exchange of ideas, information, inspiration and candid discussions of the issues, challenges and unique opportunities facing everyone in today’s luxury wedding industry.

I attended last year, and I have to say that it was the one of the most valuable and inspiring week of my professional life.  There is something about being surrounded by like-minded individuals that is just good for the soul!  Aside from being educated and inspired by the speakers, I also had an opportunity to get to know other attendees from all across the world.  In the past year and a half I have come to consider some of those attendees my colleagues, some my mentors, and some my friends.  We have celebrated successes and offered each other support on email, by phone, on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

In 24 days I will join them once again, and I look forward to coming back from those 4 days a better planner, and a better person.

Is there anything you'd like to hear about from my adventures at Engage?  Any question you'd like to pose to the best of the best?  Let me know by commenting below or sending me a private message.  I'll be sure to ask around and report back my findings!
