The Business of Weddings Ireland 2012

We interrupt the endless happy dancing currently taking place in the OFD offices to share the great news that got us dancing in the first place! For those who have been following us the last couple of years, we had the pleasure of presenting at the very first The Business of Weddings Ireland in 2010. It was a trip of a lifetime, and I consider myself fortunate to have return several times since for a bit of work and a bit of fun as well. And now, I can officially share the great news that I’ll be returning this November 6 and 7, 2012.

The conference’s “fearless leader”Annie Byrne always does an outstanding job and this year, I’m particularly excited to find out that Alan Berg will be in attendance to impart his wedding marketing wisdom. I first heard Alan speak at the Wedding MBA in 2010 and have been hooked ever since- I have no doubt the audience will enjoy him as much as I did.

And because I already can already guess the questions I might get, I thought I’d save us all some time: 1) No, unfortunately you can’t come because my husband has already volunteered to be my travel buddy, 2) Yes, I will spending oodles of time with Illuminate speak Blaithin and I’m happy to pass her any notes! and 3) I’m most definitely bringing back that chocolate from Murphy’s for my holiday cookie party again. 🙂
