24: 2017 Conferences, Retreats & Workshops for Wedding Professionals

Today I'm solo on the podcast talking all things conferences, retreats and workshops for wedding pros that are happening in 2017. If you're planning on investing in live events for your business next year but you're not sure where to even start, this episode is for YOU! 

I've compiled a list of events that range from intimate retreats with 15 people to large summits with hundreds of attendees. This list is not meant to be all-inclusive, I know there are SO MANY events out there that are wonderful but the show is only 30 minutes long so I had to limit the events I talked about! Thanks for understanding :) 

If you'd like to recommend an event in 2017 please leave the name, website and dates in the comments of this post so we can all benefit from your recommendation.
