Florence to host destination wedding planners event

DUBAI, August 5, 2015

Italy's Florence is set to play host to some of the most elite wedding planners at the annual Destination Wedding Planners Congres (DWP Congres).
 
The congres, dubbed as 'the only business focued platform for destination weddings,' is an exclusive area for illustrious wedding professionals, said a statement.
 
With a concrete reputation as a coveted brand, DWP Congress organised by Dubai based QnA International, promotes destination wedding tourism. 
 
With a strong start in Athens, Greece last year and a terrific response in Mauritius this year, every year the brand of DWP Congress moves to an exotic new location and brings together 'crème de la crème' wedding planners from over 50 countries to meet with luxury suppliers such  as five-star and boutique hotels and venues, DMCs, tourism boards and premium partners such as photographers, jewellers, florists, caterers, wedding décor, couture designers, furniture rentals, wine and spirits providers amongst other prominent wedding suppliers, in a dynamic business-driven environment. 
 
Ackash Jain, director, QnA International, said: “Firenze Convention Bureau showed a great understanding and support for the unique concept of the DWP Congress and provided a competitive bid to bring the congress to their city in 2016. The quality of Firenze’s bid was excellent and reflected the commitment of all the local stakeholders. 
 
""I would like to congratulate Firenze Convention Bureau (FCB) for emerging victorious as the strongest contender for 2016. We really look forward to bringing the world’s leading wedding planners to the breathtaking city of Firenze next year.”
 
Florence, known to many as the birth place of the Italian Renaissance era, is considered one of the finest wedding destinations in the world. 
 
Its old, charming palace hotels offer a setting of a different kind– where modern love mingles with past romances to offer a uniquely dreamy, dramatic and enchanting environment, said the statement.
 
The city has created a buzz having hosted weddings of celebrities like Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, Melissa Joan Hart and Mark Wilkerson, daughter of Indian tycoon- Jindals.
 
Leonardo Visani, congress developer at Firenze Convention Bureau, said: “We are extremely happy for this achievement and proud to bag this opportunity for our city. Florence and Tuscany are already very popular and leading Italian destinations for International Weddings (42 per cent of the Global wedding market share is in Tuscany, and 19 per cent in Florence), but we know that the competition is very stiff and it comes from all over the world.
 
“Florence is the perfect destination for weddings, because of its location, in the heart of Tuscany and Italy, and because of the magnificent palaces and villas, as well as the landscapes, scenarios and terraces. 
 
"We believe that the 'best of the best' Wedding Planners will have the same inspiration coming here, with the possibility to create even more unique weddings for their clients, in Florence.” 
 
For the next DWP 2016 in Florence from April 11 to 13, the congress is gearing up for hosting the glitterati in the wedding industry from over 55 countries. 
 
Besides progressive keynotes and engaging panel discussions, the congress will also feature a boutique exhibition which gives an opportunity to showcase the wedding services. - TradeArabia News Service
