Engage!24 The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island

We are thrilled to be hosting our second 2024 Engage! Summit at the relaxing resort paradise of The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island near Jacksonville, Florida December 16-19, 2024.  Located on a secluded barrier Island, this Florida oceanfront resort marries coastal luxuries with authentic charm.

Engage! Summits are designed for committed wedding industry professionals who are looking for innovative ideas and practical solutions for strategic growth. Engage! is dedicated to gathering the best of the best, and this Summit is limited to 350 speakers and attendees. Careful attention is paid to creating an 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 replicated.

Engage! is renowned for its exciting array of world-class speakers, which include the leading lights of the global wedding industry, top editors, thought leaders in all aspects of luxury lifestyle, and creative entrepreneurs doing unique things across the events industry. Speakers are being curated and will be announced fall 2024.

If you’re interested in being considered for speaking, 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!24 Amelia Island.

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 well before we finalize speakers. This will have no bearing on the selection process.
