To all wedding and event planners:

About a Bride Wedding and Events will be hosting a networking party in March 2009. The actual date is still being determined but I wanted to give you a heads up.

Ever flushed out hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars to participate in a tradeshow/expo?

Ever tried your hand at “entering” the conversation circle at a cocktail party?

Ever gave your card and avoided the “akwardness” at a Business Card Exchange?

Here is an event opportunity that definitely will be more interactive and effective than a tradeshow and definitely more fun than a Business Card Exchange…its the Tulle Party where networking-meets-cocktail party with a lot of entertainment, games, wine and food thrown into the mix.

There are plenty of advertising opportunities for you to get involved in and get you and your business name out there: you can purchase ad space in the Event Sponsorbook, do a vendor display booth or advertise on the About a Bride Weddings and Events website. One awesome part is that your admission ticket guarantees a visual display of your business at the event.

Or, if you want to really advertise your business, skills and talent, you can become a sponsor of the event. What this means is that you take what you are good at and incorporate it into the “operations” of the event. What I am looking for are vendors. For example, a caterer might want to contribute hors d’oeuvres for the event; a decorator might want to design the tables; a winery may want to contribute the wine for the evening. Your sponsorship would be in lieu of the admission and you have a guaranteed ad in the Event Sponsorbook.

There is so much more to this event: games to really get to know other wedding and event professionals, awesome prizes, terrific food and wine etc etc.

This is definitely a first in the Niagara region and an extreme advertising boost for your business. So, if one of your business plan goals was to either a) really market your business or, b) find more cost-effective alternative advertising/marketing avenues…..this event is for you.

Feel free to contact me via email or phone for more details.
