2012 will be a special year for wedding planners –why not start it off right by attending the industry’s biggest tradeshow and conference, the Special Event 2012 (TSE) in Tampa, FL (January 24-27, 2012)? TSE’s theme is Event 3.0- a reflection of the show’s dedication to staying ahead of wedding industry trends and finding every edge for its attendees.
You’ll see the Event 3.0 theme repeated throughout all aspects of the show. TSE’s world-recognized conference program will quickly get you up-to-speed on much more than the latest trends. You’ll learn how to harness the power of social media for marketing yourself and enhancing your wedding services. See how to use all of the newest technologies to save you time and money and make your life much easier. Event 3.0 is also about new ways of relating to clients and the necessity of making them valuable partners in the process of creating their own wedding.
On the show floor, you’ll be able to see thousands of the very latest event tools, ask questions, see how things work and establish in-person relationships with exhibiting companies. As you know, this process often makes or breaks your ability to find the exact product you want at the right price.
TSE’s spectacular showcasing events will show you how it’s all done by top event planners: the products they use, the tabletop designs, the décor, the food-basically, you’ll come away with a real understanding for how event maestros are designing their weddings in 2012.
