Organize Your Schedule 

Like planning an event, in order to have the best experience, you’ll have to organize and come up with a game plan. Check out the Convention Schedule and the AP|EX Schedule to compare session times. 

  • Plan a schedule with all of the sessions you plan to attend. Full-length presentations are 45 minutes with a 15-minute break in between sessions.
  • Make time to eat! There will be food carts on site.
  • Bring your team to divide and conquer to get the most out of the conference seminars.
  • Familiarize yourself with the AP| EX speakers and their backgrounds.
  • Consider changing your email or outgoing voicemail message to let your couples know you are at the Wedding MBA learning how to better serve your clients.

This will make your time at WMBA smooth and stress-free. See you in Vegas, Aisle Planners!
