I was lucky enough to spend last week in Vegas baby, a city that boasts nearly as many nicknames as New Orleans. Las Vegas has definitely earned the title of “Marriage Capital of the World” and although I wasn’t there for a wedding, this trip was all about weddings.
Along with our HR Director, Tonya, I hit the strip for the annual Wedding MBA
(Merchant Business Academy) with 2,000 other wedding professionals from
around the world to check out first hand the latest in weddings on
behalf of our NOLA brides. I know, tough assignment, right?! Take a look
at some highlights here:
Wedding MBA 2014
We had the opportunity to scout more than sixty wedding related seminars on everything from styles and trends (rustic is still hot) and ways to button up business, to what’s to come in tech. This glimpse into the future of technology pretty much blew my mind and was hands down one of my favorite presentations of the week courtesy of the guys at Wedding Wire. Carley Roney, co-founder of The Knot, gave an enthusiastic talk about today’s on-the-go brides and grooms. And seeing her live was just plain awesome. Charles Oster, V.P. of mywedding.com hosted a seminar that was entertaining and on point. He shared priceless tips on how we can help bring your vision to life.
Yep, we made The Knot Wall of Fame!
We returned with tons of innovative ideas about the business and service side of tying the knot. We’re looking forward to introducing the best of them here at Haydel’s to make your bridal experience top notch, so stay tuned!
Oh and in case you’re wondering, we only lost $30 on the slots. And when I say we, I mean Tonya. See you in 2015 Sin City! – M.T.
