My favorite conference, favorite speakers, favorite time of year in Vegas at my favorite hotel!!?!?  I think I just died and went to Heaven.  Rebecca Grinnals and Kathryn Arce have done it again.  The Engage 09 Encore will be held at the Encore in Las Vegas this October.  The Wynn hotels have a special place in my heart as I had my wedding reception dinner there.  So, the combination of all of these things feels like Christmas morning!

Details from Rebecca: Based on the incredible feedback we have received over the past year from attendees and speakers alike from all 3 previous engage events, we have created something a bit different and unique. We are offering what has been a resounding: “more, more, more” of some of the highest rated aspects of the first events.

I like to say we were at the 30,000 foot level for our previous programs and this ‘encore’ event will now ‘land the plane.’ It will focus on the key takeaways from past events :: personal development & business development blended with the ‘inspired networking’ that engage has come to be known for. That is why we are carefully terming it “a luxury wedding business intensive.”

We are busy at work ‘behind the scenes’ planning for an over-the-top, A-list speaker packed engage!10 event very late next spring and will announce dates, location and details in the months to come but the demand for us to bring an event to the West Coast before then and to take a deeper dive into some of the pressing and important issues facing your businesses today in an intimate but inspiring setting – alongside the best of the best like-minded wedding industry peers has inspired us to create this special encore opportunity.

The programs will feature more in-depth and highly interactive sessions with engage-alums myself, Sean Low and Simon T. Bailey along with a candid and refreshing luncheon discussion with eventiste {and now wedding blogging diva} Marcy Blum.

In addition, we also cannot wait to share with you the incredible talent of Todd-Avery Lenahan of ABA Las Vegas…the brilliant design mind behind the WYNN Resorts interiors and many, many other inspired places around the globe! A long-time friend of Kathryn and mine, he is sure to wow and inspire with a totally unique perspective of the business of design. We are thrilled and honored that he has agreed to join us!

Of course, many other fabulous & engaging surprises are in store. The official website will launch on 8.07.09 with official registration opening 8.14.09 at 9am est so stay tuned to Twitter and this blog for all the details! In order to keep this intensive event intimate and impactful, we are limiting to only 100 attendees.

Friends, block these dates on your calendar and be the first to call on registration day (8.14.09).  If you really want to take your business to the next level, no matter what work you do in the wedding industry, you have to get involved in the Engage conferences.  There is no better networking, education and atmosphere to harness rapid growth.  You can read my recap of Engage08 here and My Engage09 Megapost coming next week.  If you have any questions about my experience at Engage, please don’t hesitate to call or email me.  Bravo Rebecca and Kathryn!
