WED Midwest Team

We thought it should be easier. Easier to learn about building a business. Easier to make an effort to grow. Easier to connect with others.

The problem is that there are no wedding-industry educational opportunities centralized in the Midwest, and that someone that lives in the middle-of-the-map has to pay hefty airfare and hotel expenses just to make their way to Vegas or the coast to embark on an opportunity to learn. So, the WED Midwest Conference was born as an easier alternative for the wedding professionals living in the Midwest to get their hands on an educational summit to continue their business and personal growth as an entrepreneur. We found it to be easier to bring in the expertise than to fly everyone out of town (even though Vegas certainly would have been a good time!).

The WED Midwest Conference is organized by previous and current wedding professionals; people that know what information is valuable as a passionate entrepreneur. We are bringing you the best of the best in terms of speakers, content, and experience. We look forward to meeting and learning with all of you in August!
