Last year's first annual Santa Barbara Wedding Industry Summit "Define, Design, Evolve" sold out 3 months in advance. The whole concept of a Santa Barbara Wedding Summit was founded as an opportunity to serve Santa Barbara wedding and hospitality professionals providing top-notch, fresh industry education as well as provide the opportunity for conversation and collaboration between the leaders in our local industry looking at the issues that face us specifically as Santa Barbara wedding & hospitality professionals in our world-renowned location.
This year, we have re-imagined the 2nd Annual State of the Santa Barbara Wedding Industry Summit and taken it to a whole other level. Considered a "Mastermind" event, participants will experience an epic, all-day-long Summit Retreat dedicated to wedding business education for leaders, providing national and local Santa Barbara wedding business information, as well as a featured key note speaker you won't want to miss: internationally-acclaimed wedding business expert Liene Stevens from Think Splendid* will provide a dedicated workshop/chat for several hours in the heart of our day touching on topics such as the state of the wedding industry; what to charge (applicable to any wedding business), what your marketing plan for 2020 and beyond needs to include and why; and comments on the current wedding downspend affecting everyone nationally. If you aren't familiar with Liene, you should be... she's constantly in demand all over the world as the premiere wedding business strategist.
Want to take a peek at what we have on the agenda and see what other invaluable topics we are covering with professional experts, including an attorney addressing internship considerations and a financial advisor addressing retirement and investments for small businesses and sole proprietorships? See below. Prepare to be dazzled. Your investment for an entire day of world-class education, Welcome Champagne Brunch in Holden Garden, and relaxation with other Santa Barbara movers and shakers, all ending with a Farewell Cocktail Party under the stars will no doubt provide more than a return. Best part of all? You don't have to fly somewhere for top notch quality education. We are providing it all here in the iconic location of Music Academy of the West. There is no doubt this may be the industry mastermind event of the year in Santa Barbara.
We are offering 60 seats maximum for this event, making it a highly-exclusive and focused specialty experience sure to sell out quickly. We have also opened it to event professional leaders in Northern and Southern California to create a destination getaway summit experience. If you are attending from out of town, contact us for hotel recommendations.
