On April 12th this year, NACE Houston Chapter will hold their flagship annual event, ‘Trends,’ at 713 Music Hall.

Now in its fourteenth year, Trends began as NACE Houston Wedding Trends, an exploration and celebration of the ever-evolving trends in our industry and a chance for Houston wedding professionals to network and show off their products and services.

Rebranded NACE Trends in 2022, the event embraced a broader focus on all of the wonderful events in and around Houston, Weddings being a continuing key part of that!

In 2023, NACE Trends will be branded TrendsFest as we explore the vital role of music in crafting experiences for our couples and clients. Many of Houston’s very best wedding & events vendors will contribute to a sensory experience like no Trends event before. From our disco cocktail hour to a 90’s throwback after party, Houston’s event pros are in for an unforgettable evening!

Education and growth have always been key components of Trends. At dinner, we will hear from speaker Anthony Lambatos from Footer’s Catering in Denver, CO and The Mibe: Make It Better EveryDay, focusing on how to cultivate a workplace and brand that empowers those around you (whether you’re a solopreneur or in a corporate environment), through heart-leadership and authenticity.

Houston’s very best wedding & event vendors are always growing, learning together and sharing resources that uplift our events community as a whole, and NACE Houston Trends is proud to be a platform for that ongoing development, allowing the industry to keep abreast of trending developments in our space to allow us to better serve our clients.
