The 2 day extravaganza was also beneficial to several wedding service providers who had the opportunity to learn from Julie Albaugh, Editor WeddingMarketNews.com in a very interactive session on Sept 27th. During this session, Julie gave them tips and guidelines to market their businesses better and utilize social media more effectively for the wedding and event industry.
