How to Make the Most of Your Next Virtual Summit

Conferences and summits are a fantastic way to continue learning while staying connected to the wedding community. In fact, Timeline Genius was built on the opportunity to connect with planners at large in-person events. But now that safety has required a little more distance between us, we’re grateful to still have the opportunity to connect virtually with our current customers and with other valuable members of the wedding industry through online events. Choosing the right virtual conference or event isn’t always easy, so we spoke with wedding biz guru and all-around awesome person, Heidi Thompson to get the inside scoop on how to make the most of your next virtual summit.

Oh and P.S. Heidi has an opportunity for you to put these tips into practice, keep reading to find out more!
