My experience with Let's Plan Conference was amazing. The event was meticulously organized, sessions were very informative for the attendees with topics that covered everything for event and wedding professionals, the White Diamond party was a lot of fun, and the energy throughout the conference was contagious. It was the perfect event to create long-lasting relationships and learn from experts in their field. If you are new in the industry, this is the conference you don't want to miss.
I was very honored to be a speaker and I felt extra special and very much loved thanks to Tawanda, Athena and Shavonya. You ladies thought about EVERYTHING!
Congratulations on a successful conference, I can't wait for the 2018 edition!

The Let's Plan Conference 2017 was just what I needed! Her Emcees, Veronica and Omar kept us entertained and kept the workshops moving! The guest speakers were all so full of knowledge and tips. They didn't hold back anything. I learned so much, branding, pricing, color psychology, business law information, hiring a nurse for your event. Who knew? The celebrity guests came to inspire and push us to the next level. J. Bolin's fashion show featured local designers and his own line of fashions. He was simply awesome! The founder of the conference, Tawanda Sims, CEO of Elite Events by Tawanda is an awesome business professional and does everything in the Spirit of Excellence! Thank you for bringing this vision to life! I can't wait for the Let's Plan Conference 2018!

The "Let's Plan Conference" hosted by Tawanda Sims was off the charts! Her Executive Team and Staff were outstanding! Initially, I was wondering how I, as a Life Coach and business owner, would benefit at a conference that I thought was primarily for wedding and event planners. But, as I attended both days, I quickly realized I was in the right place at the right time! ALL of the sessions were informative! I received tons of great information! The speakers were not just speakers, they were subject matter experts that provided tips and tools that I was able to implement immediately in my business! This conference was far from just a wedding and event planners conference! The tools and information was for anybody who wants to up-level their business. Every business owner, thought leader, dreamer and visionary should make plans to attend in 2018, because I'm telling you 2017 was SUPERB!!!!! Hats off to Tawanda, The Executive Team and Staff! See you all in 2018!!

Let’s plan was more than an educational conference for planning a wedding but was educational for planning for life. Every speaker provided valuable tools and gems of knowledge. From the checking in to the closing remarks there was great energy that can be felt from the attendees, vendors, Team Elite, models, everyone!!! Even after getting married and having my dream wedding I will still attend the conference to see what new I can learn. PS I loved Slomique from tv but love her even more. Her passion and love for the industry, people and success can be felt!! Great, great, great conference! Be there next year!

As a vendor, Let's Plan gave you the opportunity to speak to brides one on one in a relaxed atmosphere. The whole conference had an exclusive and personal feel, making it easy to talk to potential brides and network with other vendors. I highly recommend this conference for attendees and vendors alike.

This is for everyone who wants to or is about to get married. Very informative and very organized. Let’s Plan allowed everyone to see in the eyes of the wedding planner, the wedding party, the wedding guest and even the dessert and cake designers. This needs to happen all over the world. LET’s PLAN was well planned!
- Tawanna Thomas
You could feel the excitement and anticipation from the time the guests arrived until the drawing of the $10K wedding package give away! And the models and wedding gowns!!! Perfectly Gorgeous! Don't let another year go by and not be a part of the Let's Plan experience. See you next year!
