Teenage Engineering
I\'m recommending that you book a keynote speaker from the group called TEENAGE ENGINEERING. They merge consumer electronics with music projects. The interesting tie into our industry is that they’re working with IKEA to create a line of \'event & party\' products that will release for sale in 2019.

I started Bella Calla in 2010 and started my path in the wedding business. We went from 16 weddings our first year to 125 our second season. We pretty much rocked it and grew in size, as well as scope since then. Life has changed for me a bit in the last few months - I have sold the floral business and finally moved into planning full time. I have had Sweetly Paired (wedding planning) for about 5 years, and we\\\'ve planned many events in the mountains of Colorado. We specialize in Colorado\\\'s... (Read all)
