First off – no – I am not engaged!  As those of you who know me – I am still a very happily married newlywed of 2 years and counting!  I totally dig being married to the man of my dreams!

However – I just came back from the amazing Engage!10 conference in the Cayman Islands put on by the amazing dynamic duo: Rebecca Grinnals and Kathryn Arce from Engaging Concepts (see the two of them below with Jennifer Domenick from Love Images).  It literally was one of the most engaging conferences I have ever been to.  In fact – I can say I gained more from this 3 day conference than I have from the countless number of seminars and industry events that I have been to in my almost 13 years of doing business!

Not only did I get to hang out with my dear friend and amazingly talented Jennifer Domenick, I also got to hang out with people like Sylvia Weinstock (who is a hoot and a genius), Randy Fenoli (who makes me laugh every time I see him) and Colin Cowie (who is dreamy beyond compare) and I finally got to hear the great Simon T. Bailey speak.

Of course there were other speakers and interesting things that I learned.  However, one of the main “golden nuggets” (that we all search for at conferences) is the sense that I am on the right track.  We value our customer service, our innovative products and services and thrive on providing up to the minute trends, style and design for our clients. The main thrust from the conference is being here, right now and communicating ideas and inspiration for our clients and our colleagues.

I got to meet a lot of really interesting and talented people and on top of it all – I came back refreshed and excited about all of the new things we plan on doing for you as our clients in 2010 – 2012.  We always have something new and exciting in the pipeline and now, more than ever, our momentum is increasing.

As you can see from these fun Snapshot Studio photos from Jennifer Domenick and Love Images – we had a blast on our last night at the conference.  And since we are all event professionals – we finally had our chance to kick up our heels, relax, chat, dance and eat!  A special thanks to the event professionals at The Ritz Carlton and to Kathryn & Rebecca!

Happily Engage(d)!
