Are you tired of going to the same old networking events? Mingle. A cocktail. Repeat. - Us too. That is why we created the Emerge Event Collective.
We know that networking seems daunting. You are a busy and successful event pro who wants to be challenged with in depth education and conversations, innovative networking events, and more than the everyday meetups. One that helps you raise the bar not only in our industry, but in your business.
We've combined innovative and inspiring networking events, industry leading education and speakers, industry leading designers for our events, and online advertising to create a new kind of event collective. One that feels like family. Where we spend time getting to know one another on a personal level doing interactive activities that allow you to experience things as humans.
We believe that authentic personal relationships lead to authentic business relationships.

We believe in fostering an environment of kindness in our industry - one where egos are checked at the door and it feels like family. We believe that collective experiences allow us to connect as humans on a personal level and personal connections lead to the best possible business connections. We combine industry leading experience based networking, education, advertising, and an online community to create a robust support system for wedding and event professionals around the world. All with a mission of giving back to our industry and communities we impact.
While our conversations, education, and events are geared towards the luxury and high end event professional, we have members from all walks of life. We have members who are luxury and those trying to up level their business. In short, we welcome all professionals that meet our requirements with open arms, though the price point of our events and our content are geared towards the high end and luxury markets.
No! We started in Colorado and certainly do have a large Colorado base, but have grown and have members all over the United States and Canada. While the remainder of the in person 2023 events are in Colorado, we will have online networking events once a month and pop up 2-3 day events next year in different cities giving our members across the country the opportunity to connect.
We have monthly online events as well as 4-6 open events per year with at least 2 of those as pop up events in cities outside Colorado for 2024. We also have members only exclusive events.
With a goal of leaving egos checked at the door and leading with kindness, we combine an online listing, advanced education, monthly online interactive community meetups, and in person networking that is focused on interactive and experience based events for luxury and high end event professional. We believe that doing human things will lead to authentic, vulnerable relationships. We also have an online forum on facebook for all our members where you can ask questions, share referrals, and have conversations. We are a privately held company with a mission to change how we network in our industry.
No! While we do have a lot of wedding professionals, Emerge has always been open to all event professionals and we are adding a ton of corporate and social event professionals, DMCs, and event staff that do other types of events to our membership.

"We are coming up on our one year anniversary and I know it has been one of the best investments I've made for my business. The vendor relationships we've grown over the last year are worth their weight in gold! We love being able to warm-refer clients to people we know personally, who operate at the same standards that we do, and provide top-notch services. It truly is a family environment for the crazy chaotic industry we work in which provides a safe place to grow personally and professionally."
