20/20 vision - the Ever evolving world of event trends

What does it meant to be part of the events industry in 2020? Well don't blink! Meetings and events are a rapidly changing dynamic and a key piece of our event professional world is to educate ourselves on trends that are evolving around the country. This meeting is a 'do not miss' event to help polish your industry lense and more clearly see what trends are transpiring in 2020!

Our Speaker



Spreading her metropolitan style through the low country, Terrica has been creating exquisite weddings and events in the Golden Isles area for the past 15 years. 

Specializing in modern Southern weddings, she believes in creating custom experiences inspired by her clients' love stories while infusing technology and efficiency. A contributing board member of the North American Academy of Wedding and Event Planning, Terrica's weddings and expertise have been featured in The Knot, Reader's Digest, Martha Stewart Weddings, HLN tv, Style Me Pretty and a host of others. In addition to leading a rockstart team at her planning and design firm, she also owns The White Lounge - a contemporary wedding planning studio for couples and wedding professionals. 

A wave maker nominated for 2018 Honeybook's 20 on the Rise and a current Knot Pro Educator, she launched her signature wedding industry education system, "Here Comes the Brand" in Winter 2018. Terrica is an ardent educator of those in the wedding industry, also hosting the "She Doesn't Even Go Here" podcast. As an avid lover of cake and champagne, you'll find her at home in the Golden Isles with her four "fabutots," and when not entertaining family and friends, she's frequently binging on RuPaul's Drag Race and Game of Thrones.
