This week Kimberly is representing the Hitched Events team at the Association of Bridal Consultants Annual Conference in sunny, southern California. Since we all couldn’t be at the conference this year, we thought we would check-in with Kimberly and see how she’s doing!
Emily Pence: I bet you’re having an awful time in California, huh?
Kimberly Rhodes: I’ve stayed indoors the whole time.. there’s just too much sunshine! Just kidding! It’s fantastic and I’m happy to be attending the ABC Conference again this year.
EP: Tell me what you were most looking forward to at the conference this year.
KR: This is my fourth year attending the ABC Conference. It was in Denver in 2012, West Palm Beach in 2013, and Jamaica in 2014. I love coming to the conference every year because I get to attend some excellent educational seminars (everything from hiring and building a team to transforming complicated event spaces) and meet wedding planners from all over the world. I’ve made some great friends over the years. There are some attendees here from Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, and even China! It’s so fun and interesting to mix and mingle with these wedding planners from all over the country, hear about their businesses, and learn how they operate in other markets. It’s a great place to network and bounce ideas off of other wedding industry professionals!
EP: Sounds like you’re having a lot of fun.. hopefully we can join you next year!
We have some photographic evidence that Kimberly is enjoying herself at the ABC Conference!

We know you had a great time in California, but we’re ready to see you back in the office!
