Breaking into the JEWISH Special Events Business!


Milestones Special Events Networking and Washington Event Network are partnering to bring you more great networking experiences and trainings!

The Bar/Bat Mitzvah and wedding are the most important life cycle events within the Jewish Community. These milestones share many similarities with other special events, but there are a number
of important differences that Industry Professionals should be aware of. Join Mona and Jay from Milestone Media Group as they discuss some basics that may lead to booking your first Jewish event or increasing your Jewish Special events business.

For those who would like to stay, attendees are invited to learn how to set up and take down a Chuppah or Jewish Wedding Canopy. Charm City Chuppahs is looking to expand its operations and needs qualified trained team members to service local weddings on an as needed basis. Participants will be trained to become part of the "Charm City Chuppah Team".

Mona and Jay Freedman of Milestone Media Group, have been involved in the Jewish Special Events industry since 1999. They publish Milestones Party and Event Planning Guide, Produce Milestones Party Planning Expos, Charm City Brides and Grooms Expo, run the Jewish Business Connection and Milestones Special Events Networking meetings, own Charm City Chuppahs and hosts, the busiest Jewish special events website in the world.
