aving grown up as a military brat, I'm quite
familiar with the experience of being " the new
kid. " The irst few days are always bewildering and a bit
overwhelming. You spend a lot of time feeling intensely
aware of how much you have to learn, while also trying
not to panic about the potentially lengthy list of things
you aren't even aware you don't know yet. Mistakes are
inevitable, but with luck, minor. You learn to smile a lot,
ask questions and listen keenly.
Over the last 20 years, I've worked with several
different trade associations and have found the process
of learning a new industry is very similar to moving
to a new town. All my familiar landmarks are gone.
Industry contacts cultivated over years, suddenly
no longer relevant. I'll spend some time feeling a bit
lost, relying on the kindness of strangers to point me
in the right direction and teach me all that I don't yet
know. Fortunately for me, the staff at IFAI has been the
friendliest and most welcoming I've ever encountered.
They tell me the members of the Tent Rental Division
are similarly good-natured, and I'm looking forward
to getting to know you and your industry better in the
months to come.
In this issue, we kick off the start of the wedding
season with an in-depth look at the very latest wedding
trends on page 22. Because of COVID, many couples
have been waiting since 2020 to marry and 2022 is
being called " the year of the wedding " as those overdue
ceremonies inally take place. As a result, guest lists are
ballooning and that means more bodies on the dance
loors. Check out page 34 for a look at the newest options
available as well as tips for companies considering
purchasing new looring. And of course, with so many
companies booked solid after a two-year slump, event
planners and tent rental companies alike could use the
tips on working together found on page 28!

EVENTS!
