What is happening each day?

Sunday is all the action packed general sections and one break out session, plus an amazing fashion show!

Monday is most of the break sessions and some general sessions. with 1-on-1 times mixed in.

Tuesday will have one break out session and some general sessions, plus some final panels and a big hoorah at the end, including some industry awards.

And we’ll have a mixture of food and drinks each day to keep your energy up as we dive in and get the deep work done!

When does the travel incentive end?

July 4th!! Seriously, don’t wait on this. It’s a huge perk. Use this link to book your hotel stay. When you purchase your ticket to Launch, America’s Mart will credit you one night of your hotel stay, as long as you stay 3 nights.

Make sure that you select the correct market – which is World of Prom – August 5th – 10th. (You can make reservations to arrive into Atlanta August 3rd, so that you can attend Launch August 4th – 6th)

What is the last day to buy tickets?

July 25th is the absolute last call. But we recommend grabbing them sooner so that you can take advantage of the travel incentive perks that end tomorrow!!

Can I move around between tracks?

Yes!! We want you to find the sessions that you know will propel you and your business forward. Plug in wherever you feel is right.

Or hop out for a 1-on-1 session like SEO, PPC paid media, social media, financials, inventory questions, branding, marketing, and more with the DYSB partners.

What about those 1-on-1 sessions? How do I get one?

You’ll get an email with sign up will be sent out two weeks asking you about topics you would want to talk to someone about, then about 48 hours before you’ll pick a time to sign up for when you’re there and have set up your schedule.

Can we come and go or do we have to stay the whole time?

Yes, you can come and go, but we really don’t think you’ll want to leave! The ticket cost covers all the information and amazing unlimited access to the whole summit and its perks and events, so it stays the same regardless of what sessions you end up deciding to attend.

When can I buy the collections presented during Launch?

We’re really excited about all the designs and new lines headed your way during the conference! You’ll be able to see product and work out your order in a low-stress setting throughout the event. Once you’ve asked all your questions and feel awesome about what you pick, you’ll be able to submit your orders when the designers are ready. Most will be taking your final orders during Market.

What topics are going to covered?

Buying well, increasing closing rates, marketing, managing your team, SEO, hiring, firing, loving your work, serving your brides, and so much more. We’re especially excited about the five new tracks designed just for where you and your business are at the moment:

Track 1 : Couture 
Track 2 : Volume/Multi-Unit
Track 3 : Prom 
Track 4 : New Store 
Track 5 : Social Media/Digital Marketing/Mid-size Boutiques

You may want to catch more than one track!! If that’s you, make sure to grab a couple of extra tickets and bring some team members who can absorb and apply well!
