  • Magnolia Bluebird Goes to New York || BizBash IdeaFest

    We believe that continuing education is vital to our success as a professional event planner and to feed and nurture our creative energy. We strive to stay on top of the latest industry and event trends, continue to build our network of incredible vendor partners and seek inspiration from leaders and thought innovators. We took a little time and hopped a train to New York yesterday for the BizBash Event Innovation Forum for a 24 hour "quick and dirty" education conferenece and tradeshow. We were incredibly inspired by some of the feats and insights shared by some of the biggest names in our industry. A common theme of the show was all of the incredible apps and technology available from custom event apps, floorplan and guest management platforms to fundraising and auction technology.

    We took a few snapshots along the way and we hope you will check out our journey and some of the inspiring take-aways that we shared on Twitter @MBBde
