Our monthly meetings are a great place to network with other wedding professionals in San Diego. The Association’s monthly meetings are held on the third Tuesday of select months at some of the most elegant and desired venues in San Diego. The meetings typically include:
- Networking / Cocktail Hour – a chance to meet new industry colleagues, or connect with old ones.
- Meal, typically a sit-down, plated meal.
- Formal Program – of select topics that affect small businesses and/or those in the weddings & events industries.
At many meetings, there may be an additional “Professional Development” portion. The Professional Development Program provides you with the most current information and insight into the latest trends and business practices to support your wedding business. The informative classes are one hour prior the networking time at most of our meetings. These highly beneficial classes are provided at no charge to enhance your experience at San Diego ABC.
Because our meetings emulate real events and wedding reception settings, we invite ABC members to sponsor their services as a way to showcase their work. The success of our events rely heavily on sponsoring vendors who donate (or heavily discount) their goods, services and/or time.
- Food & Beverage
- Linens & Decor
- Photography & Videography
- Sweets & Treats
- DJ/Music and/or Audio/Visual
- Other Unique Services
You will receive recognition in advance via our marketing activities (website listings, email blasts, social media) and you’ll also be recognized at the meeting itself. Best of all, you’ll be part of a community that gives back to assist in the success of the organization.
Vendors in the industry have a chance to showcase their products/services. Sometimes it’s a new company, or a new, unique product or service that you’d like to introduce to the community. Unlike Sponsoring Vendors, Showcasing vendors are not required for the proper execution of the event. Showcasing vendors are not present at every event. When space for a showcase vendor exists, there is usually only one regardless of category.
