A while back I was on the lookout for wedding professional networking events or meet-ups happening in the Eugene/Springfield area. Unfortunately I didn’t find much, and the closest group I found was in Salem. I immediately had the desire to create something like this for our area.
It turns out that Anastasia of Anastasia Ehlers Floral Design had been mulling over this same concept for quite some time. We got together shortly after and decided to make it happen, and Engaging Eugene was born.
Engaging Eugene is a monthly open networking event for wedding professionals in the Eugene/Springfield area. Our focus is on building relationships, working together, providing top-notch services to brides and grooms, and having fun!
We are super excited to announce that our first networking get together will be on January 14th at the Barn Light in downtown Eugene from 7-9 pm. Our first event will be very laid back — think meet and greet. Bring your business cards and come drop by to meet other wedding professionals in the area. We will even have prize drawings to give out to a couple lucky attendees!
Me and Anastasia are so excited to bring something like this to Eugene. We hope and believe that it will be a truly valuable resource for local wedding professionals.
You can check out our website at www.engagingeugene.com, and follow us on Facebook here. We are looking for hosts for our future events, so if you are interested please shoot me a line at email@example.com.
Looking forward to seeing you on January 14th!
