Jen Campbell from Green Wedding Shoes will tell you how ten years in the interactive/web and print design industries informed her transition to wedding-web super star at the November 8 & 9 Get Engag

Where: The Fairmont Olympic Hotel

What: Dear Wedding Industry Professional,

Are you feeling like you’re always some equivalent of the bridesmaid? Does it seem you’re never really able to step into that starring bride- or groom-type role? Are you just not kicking the kind of business-plan bootie that you know you’re capable of kicking? Do terms like "Google analytics" and "online marketing" make you run for the file cabinet? Are you — let’s get down to it — still making clip-art brochures and sending them via fax? Maybe you’re actually jazzed on the whole social media networking thing, and you’re jonesing for more.

The Get Engaged Tour wants to propose to you.

Spend two days in one of downtown Seattle’s most luscious and accommodating venues; engage with some super successful, savvy stars of the online-o-sphere in dynamic and interactive explorations (The Social Media Tool Box for Wedding Professionals workshop, Breaking Through the Noise to Reach New Audiences discussion) of all things digital and prosperous; nosh your way through three-courses of a networking lunch, a whopper of a happy-hour get-down, and a Yelp Elite crew pizza party, and reap the rewards in a happily-ever-after kind of business-world bliss.

Whether you’re overwhelmed by Facebook or all over Twitter, of just down to up your game, it couldn’t hurt to get face time with media professionals who have way more Twitter groupies than you do. And maybe it couldn’t hurt to spend some time with me. I’ll be sharing a microphone with Blair deLaubenfels from Junebug Weddings and telling you what you should know about using social media — or not using it — to get to the wedding media.

Register for the day-and-a-half teach-off with the Get Engaged folks, and, hold the phones — err, your mouse — enter the code SeattleMet75 and save $75 on the registry fee just for hearing about it here. On this blog. See, now look at that: You’re maximizing the digital world already. The offer is good through October 25, so don’t sit on it for too long.

When: November 8 and 9
