The Pink City will play host to the second edition of Travel Wedding Show, the B2B meetings platform for buyers and suppliers in the wedding segment and tourism stakeholders, which will be held from July 8-9, 2017, at the Jaipur Marriott Hotel.
The second edition of the Travel Wedding Show, set to be held in Jaipur next month, is already creating a buzz in the travel and weddings industry. The Chief Guest for the event will be Rajeev Jain, Director, Rashi Entertainment, while the Guest of Honour will be Hema Hariramani, Director–National Sales India, Marriott International.
The show is expected to have 30 high-profile exhibitors including Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre, Taj Hotels & Resorts, The Oberoi Hotels & Resorts, AccorHotels, Abu Dhabi Tourism Board, Austria Tourism Board, Ras Al Khaimah Tourism, Destination Canada, among others. The two-day event, organised by PLG and DDP Exhibitions, will address the need for a consolidated faceto-face opportunity between the travel fraternity and weddings sector. The first day will witness the presence of 35 wedding trade specialists from across the country, showcasing the variety of weddings they specialise in. A gala dinner will be organised at the venue on the same day, where industry experts will address participants. For the second day, 35 wedding planners and agents from across the country have been invited for the event.
The show attracts buyers from across the country showcasing a range of products, which are relevant to the exhibitors’ specialities. The main agenda behind the show is to bring new business opportunities to its exhibitors. Sarika Bhambani Rawal, General Manager, Travel Wedding Show, says, “The idea is to amalgamate the two vibrant sectors–weddings and travel–a scenario that is seldom witnessed. The show will bring a selected group of people together and facilitate business for the growth of both the industries. Moreover, the two industries will come together for face-to-face interactions that are more effective.
The two-day event is organised in a manner that it will enable the suppliers in understanding the unique requirements of the wedding planners and trade specialists separately.” The first edition of the Travel Wedding Show was held on July 9-10, 2016 in Gurgaon. The show hosted 30 exhibitors and 30 buyers on both days and saw participants engage in 1200 meetings in a roundrobin format. The Indian wedding industry is reportedly flourishing at a growth rate of 25 per cent per annum and is pegged at an estimated ` 250,000 crore ($40 billion).
