I’m delighted to report that on March 29, 2019, I will be one of 4 keynote speakers on the CAPTURE event track of the 6th annual Destination Wedding Congress being held March 27-29 at the Atlantis Hotel on The Palm in Dubai. Previous DWP highlights (2014-2017) can be seen on this page’s videos.
I’ve been invited to present my latest photography marketing talk: Marketing & Mindfulness. In this talk, I explain how photographers and other visual content creators must work on their “Inner Game” if they want to succeed in this 24/7, information-overloaded global economy.
We are all flooded with constant opportunities to distract us from properly utilizing our most important business assets: our time, our attention, and most importantly for artists, creating new work.
The CAPTURE track of the conference is brand-new to DWP this year. It’s the business development and marketing track geared to visual storytellers (photographers, videographers and drone operators). During the CAPTURE track, image makers will to learn how to create more effective marketing plans.
Many photographers will be attending DWP to have face-to-face networking opportunities with the dozens of top-tier international destination wedding planners. These are the people who want and need to hire the best visual storytellers who are located anywhere in the world.
Over 500 attendees are coming from 70 different countries. They represent all aspects of the destination wedding industry. Both destination wedding planners and many of the service providers the planners need to create extraordinary destination weddings. Some of the attending providers are representing the world’s top hotels, tourism boards, caterers, floral designers, etc., etc.
And what would a great destination wedding be without the absolutely essential services of my favorite folks…photographers and videographers?
I can’t wait to meet some of the many creative people coming from so many different parts of the world!
