Engage! is not like any other conference in the world!
I was truly excited about coming to Engage, but the real experience was phenomenal and exceeded all of my expectations. It was so worth the 24-hour trip from South Africa!
Hands down this is the best conference our industry has anywhere in the world. And in every way.
I truly enjoyed Engage! Makes me wonder why it took me so long. Looking forward to the next one.
I've been to other conferences but Engage! stands out, not only for the top notch content & speakers and obviously the beyond amazing swag but also the people! It is worth every penny!
An inspiring, educational, and elevated experience for passionate wedding professionals — they really go away charged up and ready to take their businesses to the next level.
Set on the Adriatic sea, Borgo Egnazia is one of Italy’s most exciting and authentic locations. Designed around typical Puglian architecture the surrounding Borgo, Corte and Villas embody the true essence of Puglia. Borgo Egnazia blends Italy’s historic roots with chic minimalism to create an experience like nowhere else. Inside, white-on-white interiors, copious candlelight and whimsical details create a modern fairy-tale feel; outside, four swimming pools, two beaches, an award winning spa VAIR and the 18 hole San Domenico golf course offer activities aplenty. The secluded environment was one of the draws for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, who wed here in 2012.
