NEW DELHI, India – The first edition of Travel Wedding Show 2016, a B2B meetings platform for buyers and suppliers of the wedding segment, witnessed participation of 28 suppliers and an equal number of buyers, comprising wedding planners, travel agents who specialize in weddings, corporates and tour operators. With pre-scheduled meetings between handpicked buyers and sellers, the event took place recently at Le Meridien, Gurgaon. The participants saw an influx of opportunities in the immensely popular ‘destination weddings’ segment.
Explaining the concept behind this one of its kind show, Punam Singh, Associate, Travel Wedding Show, said, “We left no stone unturned to make the Travel Wedding Show a return-on-investment event, promoting knowledge-sharing, networking opportunities and ensuring visibility to participants. It was a conscious decision to keep it open exclusively for the renowned wedding planner buyers on the first day. The tour operators met on the second day, thus enabling suppliers to speak at ease with each of them.”
Sarika Bhambhani Rawal, General Manager, Travel Wedding Show, said, “We consciously streamlined both the days with different agendas to enable the suppliers understand the unique needs of the wedding buyers and tour operators separately. We are hopeful that the wedding industry partners will envisage this exclusive platform. The Travel Wedding Show provides the business environment for both these industries to join hands and do serious business in a convenient place and manner.”
