You Can Learn to Speak the Language of Technology

Starting January 21, 2020! After the venue, audio visual is often one of the largest budget items, and yet so often planners are unable to make sense of a typical proposal.

Make Things Beautiful and Make Beautiful Things

Starting February 4, 2020! Producing an aesthetically pleasing wedding or event that truly impresses seen-it-all attendees can be a daunting task. Today’s event designers are expected to incorporate food and beverage, technology, and branding and find innovative ways to play with color, create unique focal points, use lighting to make a space feel more intimate, and select florals that don’t max out the budget. Can you intelligently “talk the talk” with creative vendors in order to convey your vision? Do you have the creative edge?

Are Non-Profits Your Passion?
