Today, we are featuring our journey at Engage!, which was hosted in Mexico for the first time ever! From June 8-11th, the wedding industry elite gathered for three days of inspiration, education and celebration in Riviera Maya, at the acclaimed NIZUC Resort & Spa. Engage!15 exclusively took over the entire resort during this time and our team couldn’t have been more ecstatic that in addition to attending this event, we were given the opportunity to work with local superstars Elena Damy and Canteiro Weddings, to showcase our linens against the stunning Nizuc backrop.
Engage! brings together leaders in the luxury wedding industry, from celebrity planners to luxury lifestyle experts to creative entrepreneurs offering unique insights on business strategies and life balance. Intimate by design, Engage! blends a tailored schedule of curated activities along with creative extras and down time, offering myriad opportunities for natural networking.
From our perspective, each year, the experience offers invaluable insight into the industry and coming trends, so that we can be at the cutting edge of the industry for our clients in the year to come. We are so excited to share some of the photos from our time at Engage!
An insider look at Engage! from Nuage Designs’ President, Pablo Oliveira:
After attending Engage! for 9 times the conference never fails to impress me. Not only is it the best curated conference in terms of the amazing events that take place over the 3 days, but it is also the top source of information on the state of the wedding industry. Where it is now, where it is headed, how technology is shaping weddings and how it is affecting couples planning their celebration. It is indeed the one summit that gathers the leading professionals from around the globe in a relaxed setting to effortlessly network and share ideas.
My favorite aspect of Engage! is the sense of camaraderie among the attendees. Once you meet a peer at Engage! there is an automatic bond that happens through the desire to learn, excel, share. It is truly creating a community of thinkers that are molding the future of luxury weddings.

Riviera Maya is one of the premier spots in the world for destination weddings, thanks to stunning natural settings and warm, welcoming culture.
