What We Do
Our industry is growing at an astronomical rate and it’s not showing any sign of stopping. New technologies, the newest trends, even best practices are changing every day and again…. no sign of slowing. There has been one thing missing from this growth spurt. The call for education has been heard loud and clear. Owners and their staff want to learn to BE better.
They want to learn how to compete with the leaders in our industry without depending on being a discounted flavor of the month. They want education, training and to be inspired to succeed.
At PBPI, our number one priority is to help propel the industry we love into a well-educated, professional group of service providers that any wedding planner or marketing agency would take great pride in hiring. PBPI Academy is designed to offer an immersive, hands-on learning experience over a three days of exclusive educational content taught by industry thought leaders.
