Memories of Engage 09, the Encore!

Jubilee and I made a quick trip to Las Vegas last week, for the Engage 09 Encore, held at the Wynn Encore. As we move forward in developing our plans for Wedding 360, Jubilee and I want to learn as much as possible from those who are experts in the wedding industry, and this 2 day event allowed us to meet and get to know some of the top wedding professionals in America as well as other parts of the world.

Gloria Wong Tritasavit, our design lead for the Academy for Planners and Designers attended with us; we took a walk the first night we were there, just to get the feel for our surroundings. The Wynn and the Wynn Encore are two of the newest hotel/casinos in Las Vegas, and are built on the same property, connected by a concourse of shops and restaurants.

As you can see here, Jubilee and I did get some work done between meetings...this was definitely a business trip!

This is the unique welcome bag we received when we arrived, which was full of cookies, candy, beautiful stationery, and lots of information about the event and all of the attendees...we even received a corsage to wear that night at the Welcome Party.

The standard rooms at the Wynn Encore are all exactly like this one; Jubilee, Gloria and I all had plenty of room to spread out; we were so busy once the event started, however, that we did not see much of our room!

Jubilee and I made some wonderful new friends at Engage 09, Encore, from across America, as well as Costa Rica and Canada. Two of the speakers, Sean Low, and Rebecca Grinnals, will be a part of Wedding 360's March 14-16th, 2010, Academy for Planners and Designers, to be held at The St. Regis San Francisco. After getting to know Rebecca and Sean more personally at Engage 09 Encore, we are even more excited to introduce them to the warmth and creativity of the SF Bay Area wedding community!
