The first Destination Wedding Planners Congress (DWP) which took place in Athens, Greece was attended by over 250 attendees representing the top destination wedding industry planners and suppliers from 40 countries.
Mauritius has been declared as the venue for the next 2nd Annual Destination Wedding Planners Congress. Mauritius Tourism and Promotion Authority (MTPA) will play host to the event and will bring together the top wedding planners from around the world.
“We are extremely proud and ecstatic to have won the bid for the 2015 edition of the 2nd Destination Wedding Planners Congress. Mauritius is positioning itself as a major player for international destination weddings. Mauritius has always been a hit for honeymoons, but is now gaining popularity in the destination wedding sector, owing to the immense opportunities this heavenly abode has to offer. Strategically located at the heart of the Indian Ocean, it is the centre for both east and west providing a perfect venue for the amalgamation of the finest wedding planners and suppliers of the destination wedding industry. There could not have been a better platform for MTPA, than the 2nd DWP Congress to boost the wedding tourism and solidify the image of Mauritius.” said Dr. Karl Mootoosamy, Director, MTPA.
Ackash Jain, Director, QNA International, the official organizers of the Destination Wedding Congress said “We are pleased that Mauritius has won the bid and is chosen as the venue for the 2015 edition of the Destination Wedding Planners Congress (DWP). We received a fabulous response and numerous bids based on our first edition, and it was our conscious effort to not make the congress country or continent specific and move the format to the best locations for destination weddings across the globe. We feel proud to work with a destination as picturesque as Mauritius, after hosting the 1st congress in Greece. The successful format of the congress made exclusively for the destination wedding planning industry struck a chord and made DWP an instant hit the first time, and we only look at making it bigger, better and elevating the experience to another level with new elements being introduced into the Congress.”
