The Tourism Authority of Thailand’s (TAT) and QNA International signed an agreement recognising that TAT’s bid for Thailand to host the 4th Annual Destination Wedding Planners Congress 2017 (DWP Congress 2017) had been successful.

This event is scheduled to be held in Thailand from 2-4 May, 2017, and is expected to attract 450 delegates from around the world.

Florence was the DWP host country in 2016.

Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, Governor of TAT said, “We are delighted that Thailand has been chosen as the host country for the prestigious Destination Wedding Planners Congress 2017. Thailand is a highly attractive country for couples looking to get married or enjoy honeymoons, and we can boast a wide range of wedding packages, romantic settings and luxurious, private accommodation. In addition, Thailand’s own wedding planners have great expertise in helping couples enjoy memorable and romantic nuptials.”

DWP Congress is an avant-garde initiative and the only one of its kind concept in the world. This spectacular congress has raised the bar of the destination wedding industry, as the crème de la crème across the globe from the wedding industry converges under one platform. The first DWP Congress took place in Greece in 2014, and has grown from strength to strength spreading its wings to Mauritius in 2015, and Florence, Italy, in 2016. And amidst a plethora of exclusive destinations from across Asia, Africa, the Americas, Australasia, and Europe, Thailand’s bid for the 2017 edition emerged victorious.

According to a survey conducted by QNA International, results of which were released during the 3rd annual DWPC, Thailand was revealed as the top destination of choice in Asia for destination weddings and honeymoons. This is no surprise given Thailand’s cultural lure, natural beauty including scenic stretches of beaches, mountains, greenery, unique gastronomy, entertainment, and world renowned hospitality.
