For the past 2 years, I attended the Wedding MBA in Las Vegas, which is a conference geared towards helping ALL wedding vendors (DJ’s, Florists, Venues etc.), and not just Professional Photographers. If you’re a business minded photographer looking to grow your business, improve profits and customer satisfaction this is a great conference to attend.
Keynote speakers include the founder of The Knot providing insight into wedding trends and metrics, while the CMO of WeddingWire delivers valuable advice about which social media channels are most important and how to successfully promote your brand on social media.
Many of the breakout sessions focus on Sales Tips, Generating Referrals, and improving Customer Satisfaction. Marketing is well represented, which is awesome considering how difficult it can be to navigate the world of digital marketing, and deciding where to focus marketing efforts. This year, Wedding MBA is introducing a Wedding Photography track which includes 6 speakers. Some topics include balancing your business and personal life, secrets to a successful “unplugged” wedding and a program about making lots of money upselling professional wedding albums which I’ll be giving.
It’s from October 3-5 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and the discounted rate is just $239 per person if you sign up by August 27th! After that, it’s $459 per person. If you sign up and cannot attend, you can transfer your registration to someone else (or roll it over to next year’s show).
