Julia Markel

Association for Wedding Professionals, Int'l.


Having produced Bridal Expo in California for the past 33 years, Julia has observed what works to help exhibitors get the most out of their wedding show experience. She took what she learned and broke it into simple steps that exhibitors can easily follow. She is the author of a book by the same name - “More than Just a Pretty Booth: The complete guide to get more bookings from bridal shows,” published in 2011. Julia has presented this information to wedding professionals in the U.S. and four other countries for the past 25 years, at conferences (Wedding MBA, Mobile Beat, Love Mexico, Association for Wedding Professionals Int’l, and more) and as a singular event. Julia received a Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Central Arkansas and Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from California State University, Sacramento.
