A week ago, I returned from one of the most amazing experiences of my professional career. I attended a conference at the Breakers in Palm Beach called Engage. And engage it did. For 2 1/2 days I was blown away by the speakers (the absolute top in the event industry) as well as the design, the food and the decor at every turn. At every turn – we were treated to an entirely new experience for all 5 senses. 250 event professionals at the top of their game – inspiring, promoting and challenging each other. Even the coffee breaks were over the top (and by over the top – I mean AMAZING!!!!)
I was able to spend time with 2 of my favorite fellow Colorado vendors (Debbie Orwat of Save the Date Events and Rachael Tuefel of Intricate Icings) as well as make incredible new friends.
As I put into action new plans and path for the company (as well as a new adventure that you will be hearing all about here in the next few months) what I take away is that the very people who I worship in this industry are really good people. Sitting next to Mindy Weiss at lunch, having dinner with Sylvia Weinstock (and her husband who I am pretty sure I have a wild crush on – hop on over to Instagram to see that one!) hearing Lara Casey speak, talking to Carly Roney – suddenly, I am thrilled for their personal and professional success. I think each and every one of them deserve it. And here is to playing with the big kids :). Game on!
kara delay, love this day events
