Gleaning from Experience - The Wedding Market Expo

The French philosopher Voltaire once asked, "Is there anyone so wise as to learn by the experiences of others?" It's a good question that hopefully we can all answer 'Yes' to.  

In the wedding and events business, Details has learned that gleaning from the experience of other industry professionals is an invaluable part of the equation to our continued success.  And so we do our best to take full advantage of events that provide this opportunity.  

Recently, we had the opportunity to send a couple of our staff to the Wedding Market Expo hosted by Linda Smith and Bev Egidi.  This year the Expo was conveniently located in our hometown of Nashville.  From wedding industry lawyers to coordinators and every industry genius in between, there is so much to glean from.  

This year's lineup of speakers were:  

Susan Sutherland - Award-winning coordinator
Demming Bass - Constant Contact
Shane McMurray - The Wedding Report 
Charles Oster -

Cherie Ronning - Wedding Network USA
Tom Cheledink - The Knot
Angela Proffitt - Wedding Planner
Fred Jacob - The Pink Bride

In addition to this all-star lineup, a tasty lunch from Take Away Catering also allowed us time to network with other Nashville wedding professionals.  We love having the opportunity to collaborate with other vendors.  

We can't say enough about the benefit of attending the Wedding Market Expo.  We are so thankful for professionals who take time out of their busy schedules to share their invaluable experience.
