Destination Wedding University Meets Industry Need and Exceeds Expectations as it Celebrates Graduation of Inaugural ClassFeb 14, 2019
Founder & CEO Will Medina offers in-demand training on the unique organizational and business aspects of being a Destination Wedding Expert
Fort Lauderdale, FL, February 14, 2019 – Destination weddings currently account for 25% of all weddings annually. As a segment, it continues to grow each year across demographics. Will Medina — a nationally-recognized travel agent with nearly a decade of destination wedding planning experience — knew there was an increasing demand for high-quality instruction on the nuances of creating unforgettable weddings in beautiful locations.
In addition, he knew that many travel agents want to know how to build this part of their businesses, but don’t know the practical ins and outs of this unique space. “This niche requires a specific skill set that’s very different from other types of travel planning. Agents who try to jump in without mentoring get overwhelmed really quickly.” Medina had exactly the skills and expertise needed to provide this comprehensive training.
He launched Destination Wedding University and its flagship training program called The Destination Wedding Playbook. The 15-week virtual course is hosted live weekly by Medina and features four in-depth modules that cover topics like finding a niche, client attraction, consistent conversion, and automation of services for peak efficiency and organization. As a teacher, Medina is energetic and engaged, and he facilitates a strong online community that offers camaraderie and ongoing support.
The initial launch exceeded expectations and drew 34 enthusiastic students. Upcoming graduate Brenda said, “Will is an amazing instructor who gets at the heart of what it means to organize yourself and business as a Destination Wedding Specialist. He lays it all out in a step-by-step process, and this was a respectful community of wonderful professionals. This course was well worth the commitment on all levels.”
Enrollment for 2019 is expected to triple. “My goal is to become the premier source of hands-on destination wedding training in the industry,” says Medina. If this first class is any indication, he’s well on his way.
