Last week,Â San FranciscoÂ hosted the first ever WedTech SummitÂ featuringÂ wedding and technology industries’ best and brightest. WedTech Summit was created and organized by Carol Gerin, a wedding journalist and authorÂ of The Anti-BrideÂ book, and Michael ColeÂ (BizDev specialist) with the hopes of revealing “new entry points into the wed-space, creating efficiencies, movement, matchmaking, and monetization”.
Several of our current and former clients were invited toÂ speak on the panels. ForÂ “The Meeting Place of Wedding and Travel”, the CEOs of Wanderable, The BachÂ (our current client), TourNative and Jetway, Inc. discussed the opportunities and challenges faced within thisÂ niche market.
Cofounder of our current clientÂ HoneyBookÂ Shadiah Sigala spoke alongside founders ofÂ Carats & Cake, Nancy Liu Chin Designs, LadyMarry, and Very Mary Inspired about “Bridging the Gap Between the Wedding Consumer and Vendor”.
Our CEO Sasha Vasilyuk moderated one of the afternoon panels discussing “Social Media & Community Building” with the leaders ofÂ BlogHer,Â Indiegogo, Blue Mango WeddingsÂ and TourNativeÂ who explained how they positioned themselves at the forefront of their markets using savvy social media strategies.
With companies likeÂ Great Engagement, PushFire,Â Aisle Planner, The Wedding Spot and Weddington WayÂ in attendance, this summit was the perfect opportunity to rub elbows and pick the brains of major industry influencers.
WedTech Summit 2014 was a precursor to the larger conference slated for May 18, 2015. For more information check out WedTech Summit. Â Hope to see you all there!
