Even in a world as pretty as the one always dealing with weddings, business remains business, and it is important to stay connected to the best professionals in the industry to make sure we’re always on top of the game. This year, The Wedding Bliss Thailand team was privileged to meet the best of the best in the wedding world and become an event partner for a very exclusive Destination Wedding Planners Congress. Organized by QnA International, the DWP Congress travels every year to a new destination showcasing what the destination has to offer for weddings and romance travel to high-end planners, and Thailand won this prerogative in 2017.
In partnership with QnA International and Tourism Authority of Thailand, our team set for creating the best event yet, and after almost a year of preparations, it was finally here. 2-4th May 2017, Phuket, Thailand saw the most exclusive gathering of wedding industry professionals: over 500 people from all around the world. The 3-day Congress was carefully thought of to provide attendees with more than 30+ hours of networking opportunities. There were pre-arranged business appointments, an uber ritzy welcome cocktail reception, inspirational keynote presentations & engaging panel discussions, gourmet luncheons, glorious gala dinner, focused introductions, roundtable discussions, speed networking, and an amazing farewell DWP full moon beach party – the DWP Congress had it all!!
As event partners of the Congress, we were delighted to style and put together each function mentioned, yet our favorite part as the event designers would have to be the Gala Night at the famous Blue Elephant mansion in the historic Old Town of Phuket. Themed around Thai Lanna culture, the Gala Night was full of orchids, glistening gold, excellent shows, royal cuisine, and of course, genuinely opulent outfits of all participants.
With very productive and insightful days full of networking and panel talks, evenings were devoted to casual and truly relaxing experiences, culminating in an epic Full Moon party on a farewell night. Bucket cocktails, neon painting, fireworks, cool music — couldn’t imagine a better end to a fabulous event like DWP 2017!
We’re very honored to have been an integral part of a truly global and epic wedding industry gathering like this, and next year you have a chance to catch up with the creme de la creme of destination weddings professionals in the beautiful Los Cabos, Mexico, where DWP Congress 2018 is heading to.
