Engage!23 The Paris Experience
For the first time Engage! is headed to the most romantic city in the world, Paris, July 24-27th, 2023. Join us as many of the leaders in the global wedding industry gathers for three days of inspiration, education, and celebration in the heart of the city of lights. Engage! will take place in iconic locations in and around Paris with exclusive room rates and sessions headquartered at the 5-star Hotel Plaza Athenee and Le Meurice of the Dorchester Collection, a welcome party sunset cruise on the River Seine, and a spectacular Gala at Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicompte. We will welcome a diverse collection of globally focused speakers, a mix of past favorites, and new faces to the Engage! stage. In partnership with Alejandra Poupel Events and the best of the best creative partners in France and beyond, we will experience Paris in a truly extraordinary way!
Engage! is designed for committed wedding industry professionals looking for innovative ideas and practical solutions for strategic growth. Engage! is dedicated to gathering the best of the best, and is limited to 250 speakers and attendees. Careful attention is paid to creating an intimate atmosphere that blends structure and downtime, allowing for candid networking in a non-client, non-competitive environment. The open exchange of ideas, information, and strategies for facing the challenges of the luxury wedding industry are hallmarks of the event — often imitated, never repeated.

“From its sun-dappled quays along the Seine to its quaint cafes in tranquil neighborhoods, Paris has always been known as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. In addition to its picturesque charm, it’s also a city steeped in culture, cuisine, art, architecture, and history. In short, Paris contains multitudes. More than a mere spot on the map, it’s a place that exists in the hearts and minds of all who have been touched in some way by its magical allure.”

If you’re interested in being considered for very limited speaking opportunities, please click here to fill out our speaker submission form. We do ask that the topic(s) submitted are of original content, and not delivered to an audience prior to Engage!23 The Paris Experience.
We are honored to receive an incredible amount of speaker submissions each year and with a prodigious roster of past Engage! speakers to select from, we have limited opportunity to open the platform to a few new speakers for each event. Please note that we give priority to those who have attended at least one or more Engage! event as we have found it is critical to understand the unique makeup of our esteemed audience and allows speakers to truly share impactful content that is most relevant.
If you are interested in attending the event, we encourage you to register as we anticipate selling out before we finalize speakers. This will have no bearing on the selection process.

What struck me the most was the love and attention to detail the entire Engage! team took to expose us to the local flavors and culture. The hospitality was warm and welcoming and as always, it’s amazing to connect with old friends and meet new ones!
I’m coming home with a drive, passion, and purpose that I’ve never felt before. Stay tuned y’all, this chick is on fire!
