THREE EVENTS IN THE SAME YEAR!?!
Yes! After many years of careful consideration and discussions, we feel that the time is right for us to expand internationally. We have always enjoyed the support of incredible luxury wedding professionals from around the globe – but the time has finally come to share the Engage! experience on an international stage.
We anticipate, based on demand and interest, that Engage! Europe will draw a very international audience and we will create the program and content to reflect who is joining us. Just as no two Engage! events are ever alike – this one promises to be incredibly special as we make the world of luxury weddings and social events even smaller!
In fact, since registration opened at the end of February, we are pleased to confirm attendees for this inaugural event from 34 countries and counting including the UK, Italy, Brazil, France, Germany, Dubai, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, Singapore, Spain, Belgium, Thailand, Ireland, India, Indonesia, Portugal, South Africa, Lebanon, Mexico, Russia, Nigeria, Honduras, Ghana, Canada, Jordan, the Cayman Islands and across the United States.
WILL YOU HAVE THE SAME SPEAKERS & PROGRAM AS IN THE PAST?
We are working on curating the speaker line up as we speak and the program will be customized to and inspired by our spectacular location. We will have a blend of Engage! favorites – all stars in the world of luxury weddings and events as well as expand to reflect a more global roster of talent to represent those that are doing big things in the business of weddings and luxury around the world. Stay tuned as we will be announcing additional speakers in the coming weeks!
HOW MANY ATTENDEES ARE YOU PLANNING?
As this is the first time we have brought the event to Europe, we are planning for a smaller group initially. We expect to limit the event to around 250 attendees (versus 350+ at our North America events). Because of this, we anticipate selling out even more quickly than we normally do. If you are interested in joining us, we recommend you register as soon as possible – as we will plan only one Engage! Europe event per year.
HOW DO WE PLAN TO TRAVEL TO PUGLIA, ITALY?
The spectacular Borgo Egnazia is equidistant from either Bari or Brindisi Airports in Puglia by RyanAir, British Airways, Alitalia or EasyJet. It may be more cost efficient to book round trip travel to a key European city such as Rome, Milan, Munich or London and then separately book your tickets to Bari or Brindisi. Borgo Egnazia is a 30-45 minute drive through the italian countryside from either airport and preferential rates will be offered for attendees of Engage!. We have partnered with The Travel Siblings, part of the esteemed TZell Travel Group out of New York and they are available, for a nominal fee, to assist and coordinate your travel to and from Engage!16 Europe and of course you are welcome to use your own travel provider should you wish. You may contact them directly at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT IS THE COST TO ATTEND ENGAGE!16 EUROPE?
The cost is $3100 US/approximately €2800 and includes three days and nights of exceptional connections, education, inspiration, food & beverage experiences, entertainment, parties, signature gifting and much more! Air travel, ground transportation and resort room are separate and special rates are being offered for attendees. Visit the Investment page for more information. Rates start at Borgo Egnazia at €290/night and range upward depending on room or villa category available. Specific booking details will be shared to book upon registration confirmation and room categories will be available on a limited basis, so the earlier you confirm, the higher likelihood that you will get your preferred rate and style of accomodation.
