“Having been an industry leader for over half a decade now, the Destination Wedding Planners (DWP) Congress is an exclusive, ‘by invitation only’ conference that is focused on luxury destination wedding professionals who are looking to collaborate with like-minded mavens in the wedding business to glean fresh perspectives, do business and network with some of the top creative partners and suppliers from all over the world.” – Destination Wedding Congress
Our very own Bonnie Chase had the privilege of being one of the many amazing planners at the event. Below we have her own thoughts on the incredible world-wide networking event from the industry:
“With so many conferences coming to Los Cabos, I was uncertain if the DWP was the right option for me. After the first day, I knew I had made the right choice. The conference was hands-down the best networking event I have ever attended, and gave me the opportunity to sit down and connect with luxury wedding professionals from all over the world.”
The conference included learning from world-class Luxury Wedding Experts who spoke about their skills & practices, but mostly consisted of networking meetings and smaller outbreak sessions.
“I also had the added benefit of being the only professional planner based in Los Cabos to attend the conference. Many of the vendors, sponsors and delegates at the DWP submitted meeting requests for me so they could connect with someone from our local community. In addition to connecting with pros from various destinations in Mexico, Thailand, Fiji, Italy, Canada, the Bahamas, Colombia, and many other destinations around the world, I had the opportunity to connect with vendors and venues here in Cabo, some of whom I had already known and worked with, and others who are new to our network.”
In addition to meeting many amazing wedding professionals, Bonnie had the very unexpected opportunity to interview the legendary Sharon Sacks of Sacks Productions. It was an honor and a privilege to spend a few minutes connecting with and learning from someone whose career is such an inspiration to Bonnie. That interview is regarded as one of the highlights of her own career, as she aspires to someday have a resume of events as impressive as hers.
