5 Ways We Built it Together at Wedding MBA 2018

Last month our team headed to Las Vegas for the biggest wedding industry event of the year. We're talking a 3,000-plus conference designed for wedding pros.

 From sharing our latest insights, meeting new people and reconnecting with old ones and introducing The Knot Pro app meant so much to us. Check out 5 ways we build our businesses together during three incredible days.

 1. The Knot Pro Demos

We ran mini education sessions in The Knot booth throughout the day. Our product, account strategy and education teams held 3 part series of 10-minute demos, walking pros through The Knot's latest new features. It was an intimate way to connect with pros and learn how to continue to build businesses together.

2. Video Bio Appointments 

We gave 72 pros the chance to make a killer first impression with a professionally-shot video bio. byDesign Films partnered with us to help pros tell their store in the most compelling way. Pro Tip: Having videos on your Storefront on The Knot helps increase engagement and interest in your brand.

3. The Knot Pro Facebook Live 

We hosted a mini show of our own in our booth this year to teach attendees more about how to deliver the best brand experience. Our Director of Education & Industry Innovation, Anja Winikka and Director of Two Bright Lights and How He Asked, Meghan Brown hosted the show and guests included Kaleigh Wiese (Meldeen), Andrea Eppolito (Andrea Eppolito Events), Lindsay and Cherish (La Reve Films), Matthew Gencarella (byDesign Films), Laura Cannon (Officiants, Nationwide), Clara Hough (House of Hough), Brian Bousonnini (DJ Brian B) and Beth Chapman (Little White Dress by The Shore).

4. Our Monochromatic Photo Booth 

Photo booths are more popular than ever at weddings. In fact, nearly 70% of couples have a photo booth at their reception (according to our Real Weddings Study 2017 results). We decided to try something new and went with a full color set up and gif photo booth (provided byGiggle and Riot). It was a huge hit!

 5. The Knot Pro Party 

And then of course we celebrated at The Foundation Room with #TheKnotSquad. Thanks to DJ Brian B  we didn't want to leave the dance floor all night. We enjoyed amazing views from the venue and had so much fun with new and old friends.
