We’re here at Engage!15 at the 4 Seasons at Walt Disney World (that’s all of us representing from Austin at last night’s welcome party)and we already have eye candy and inspiration to share with you soon. In the meantime, enjoy Camp Engage! Last week we shared our seven stealable ideas from last year’s November Engage! at Grand Cayman.
Engage! is a Luxury Wedding Conference where attendees are given the opportunity to hear from, speak to and network with the most creative and talented people in the events industry. Regular speakers include my sheros: Marcy, Mindy and Sylvia and my heros: Matthew & Randy.
Each time I attend the Engage! conference (the one earlier this month was my 4th) I am always blown away by the attention to detail (no surprise since the creators are Disney Wedding alumna), the creativity and the WOW factor.
Engage!14 was held in the beautiful Bachelor Gulch with the theme of “Camp Engage!”
Your save the dates and invitations are the first impression your guests receive about your Modern Jewish Wedding. Make it a good one. Let your guests know all the information to prepare then to have a great time. And, send it “Special Delivery!”
It’s the special attention to the details that set an event apart from Beautiful to Experiential! At Engage! if you blink, you’ll miss a detail and a souvenir, like the staff of the hotel wearing the event color palette, the doilies, napkins, coffee cups and YES, those are the business center computers branded for the event!
When your out of town visitors check in at their hotel (or where ever they will be staying) show them a real welcome. It isn’t just about your welcome swag. It’s about creating a mood for your guests as they transition from travel mode to fun mode.
Even the non-Jews at your party will get on the dance floor for a rousing Hora!
At the first session break the food was served to us in a covered wagon.
The welcome party had unique serving vessels (including a champagne fountain), guest interaction (create your own pizza) and bar tenders who served entertainment (and eye candy) along with the cocktails.
What’s a camp experience without S’mores and milk?
The final party concluded with the ultimate last night of camp experience where “No One Puts Baby In A Corner!”
Show your guests you’re having a good time. If they see you having enjoying yourself, they will too.
