DUBAI: The annual Destination Wedding Planners Congress (DWP Congress) organised by UAE-based QnA International has cemented its position as the Best Congress in the world for promoting Destination Wedding Tourism.

The congress has been dubbed as “the only business focused platform for destination weddings” and is an exclusive arena for illustrious wedding professionals.

Meanwhile, the Dubai-based QnA International is also gearing up to welcome the world’s most influential wedding planners next year.

Firenze Convention Bureau (FCB) emerged victorious as the strongest contender for 2016.

Commenting on Firenze’s bid, 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. We really look forward to bringing the world’s leading wedding planners to the breathtaking city of Firenze next year.”

Florence bowled over competitors to host the 3rd Annual Destination Wedding Planners Congress in 2016. Florence beat out a host of competing countries to secure the coveted title of host to some of the world’s most elite wedding planners.

Florence, known to many as the birthplace 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. The city has created a buzz having hosted weddings of celebrities like Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, Melissa Joan Hart and Mark Wilkerson, among others.

Florence has already upped its game and ranked as a desired destination for weddings by leveraging the credibility and brand of DWP Congress. There is an incredible vibe for the DWP Congress and a very positive image for the brand. On April 11-13, the Congress in Florence will open doors to its list of celebrity planners and high-end wedding suppliers, enabling them to explore countless possibilities for modern-day destination weddings.

There is no other event in the world that brings together such a diverse and multicultural portfolio of wedding professionals who are some of the finest planners and service providers.

“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,” said Leonardo Visani, congress developer at Firenze Convention Bureau, adding, “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.”

He added that they plan on meeting and networking all the most important wedding planners of the world, and hope to trade ideas and experiences in the industry. “Cultivating [these kind of relationships] is the basis for individual growth, and we believe that we could not miss such a great opportunity,” he enthused.

Florence and Tuscany are already very popular and leading Italian destinations for international weddings.

For the next DWP 2016 in Florence, the Congress is gearing up for hosting the glitterati in the wedding industry from over 55 countries. The Congress also features a boutique exhibition which gives an opportunity to showcase the wedding services.
