Since early 2008, the business of conferences has been in a funk (that’s a technical term). In the hospitality industry.

The Law of Unintended Consequences has struck the Wedding Industry, as a sidebar of this week’s government shutdown. This ongoing political dispute shows no obvious conclusion, in the foreseeable future.
No Respect! Why so many wedding businesses don’t get any. For decades, I’ve considered the quandary of many wedding business owners who feel ‘disrespected.’
My goal is reach out to wedding industry leaders and membership organizations to gauge the interest in building a collective body.
