The biggest platform for the destination wedding industry - DWP Congress is all set to host its 7th annual in the cosmopolitan island of Rhodes, Greece from 9 to 11 November in partnership with the Greek National Tourism Organization. The opening keynote will be presented by Mr. Konstantinos Zikos, Deputy Secretary-General, Greek National Tourism Organization at the event.
Speaking on the collaboration, GNTO states that "Greece and GNTO (Greek National Tourism Organization) are very excited to welcome the 350 tourism professionals from approximately 40 countries who will participate in the 7th Annual Destination Wedding Planners Congress in Rhodes. In the context of the Organization’s 2021 strategic communication planning, GNTO supports the event aiming to highlight the county’s offered possibilities and opportunities for the promotion of wedding and conference tourism, as well as luxury tourism. The country has insurmountable natural beauty, both on the mainland and on its islands, as well as particularly hospitable residents and authentic Mediterranean cuisine, which in combination with its rich history and the unique cultural monuments that visitors can admire, make it the most ideal destination internationally for honeymoon trips and weddings. Greece was the first country to open to tourism during the last summer period, after having previously shown significant performance in dealing with the pandemic. Thus, it emerged internationally as a safe destination that can adequately meet all the requirements of its visitors, for them to experience unprecedented holidays.”
Leading wedding professionals from across the globe will meet at the Mitsis Alila Resort & Spa to discuss the latest wedding trends, showcase some of the finest destinations, venues, creative partners, and services offered, connect, and collaborate in future events, while highlighting Greece as an attractive destination for wedding events and honeymoon.
Mr. Ackash Jain, Director QnA International, organizers of the DWP Congress says "We, at the DWP Congress, are extremely excited to be going back to Greece for the 7th Annual after the inaugural edition was hosted in Greece itself. This time around, we take immense pleasure in welcoming GNTO on board the DWP Congress as the Official Destination Partner. We are constantly working towards building unique experiences for global wedding connoisseurs visiting the Congress in a new wedding destination every year to discuss the trends and highlight the growth of the billion-dollar luxury wedding industry. The USP of the Congress lies in the international clientele it brings in to focus on cross border collaborations, business development and marketing opportunities and Greece has always been a top destination for couples' choices for weddings."
