I have learned that Engage! is an investment in myself, my business, and my ‘livelihood’ as an event entrepreneur.
I want to congratulate you on a phenomenal job, so worth coming all way (from Dubai) for....
How is it that this fabulous experience lasted “only” three days? I feel like I have been there at least two weeks with everything that happened. As a first time attendee, I didn’t really know what to expect – yet what I got was so, so, SO much more than what I could ever have thought of even in my wildest dreams. So fabulous.
My advice to anyone who is a part of the luxury wedding industry – put away the excuses and attend!
“An unforgettable experience. We have dreamt of attending Engage! for years and to having been able to finally make it was such a thrill!!
