“Each year, we offer wedding and event professionals the ultimate educational experience to help them take their business to the next level,” said Sonny Ganguly, CMO, WeddingWire. “It’s exciting to kick-off another year of providing top-tier education and networking opportunities here at WeddingWire World. This is the largest installment of our annual event, as it has doubled in size from previous years. From our tools and formal education to our speakers, panelists and networking, the content presented across the now two-day event is better than ever, and we hope it will aid in the success of our local business partners.”
In addition to two full days of education featuring a series of marquee speakers, the event will be packed with opportunities for attendees to improve their networking - on and offline - including:

A complimentary photography service where attendees may get a new professional digital headshot taken
A dedicated networking area called “Education Alley” where attendees can meet and connect with several professional industry associations
An opportunity to consult and order new business cards with Moo.com at a special discounted rate
The chance for attendees to receive counsel on how to maximize their business profile and experience with their WeddingWire account via WeddingWire’s own Customer Success Team
WeddingWire will also give attendees a sneak peak at a series of exciting new award programs and business products. For the first time ever, more than 20 atte ndees will be named as winners of the first annual Weddi Awards, which will highlight some of 2014’s most successful industry professionals from the WeddingWire Network. The company will also celebrate those wedding and event professionals who have collected more than 250 and 500 reviews on the site and induct them into the respective new WeddingWire Rated levels. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to see live demonstrations of all new technology made especially for wedding professionals and their businesses, including business websites, along with two new apps to help manage clients and reviews.
“It is great to take time to focus on growing your business and being a better business owner, and WeddingWire World is where all of the industry movers and shakers go to do that,” said Raquel Shutt of Wedding Savvy, Inc. “I love learning from other successful business owners. One year, I learned about expanding my business, and it is the reason why I opened a new office in Charlotte, NC. The conference always gives those kind of rewarding experiences.”
The national conference began in 2011 in Washington, D.C. and has more than doubled in size over the years. The company also offers year-round educational offerings for wedding professionals on a smaller scale, including monthly webinars, local hands-on workshops, and ongoing educational communications.
