Meeting Up is always fun!

I had a wonderful time Thursday evening at the Charlotte Wedding and Event Planning Meet Up that was held at the The Palmer Building . Which is an 1930s building that has recently been restored by the Charlotte Fire Fighters Association as an elegant reception and special events venue.

Each month the meet up highlights a profession in the event industry and provide them with a forum to advertise and discuss trends in their industry and best business practices.

This month's "Who's Who" is Wedding and Event Planners. On the panel we had:

Shanika Butts, Owner and Lead Consultant, SJB Weddings and Events
David Klingel, Special Events Manager, the Mint Museum of Art

Everyone spoke candidly about their successes, pitfulls, and tips in marketing on how to make your business successful.

Additionally, I would like to give a special thanks to Carla Eustache with Style Perfect Weddings and Events for recruiting such a talented group of panalist, A Tasteful Solution Catering and Events for the awesome food, and Pamela, from The Perfect Negative, for capturing all the highlights of the event.

I can't wait to see what is in store for us next month!
