As I strolled down the pathway beside the beach at Atlantis, The Palm, I processed my 3 days at the 6th edition of the Destination Wedding Planners Congress 2019!
The DWP team rolled out the Arabian red carpet indeed to welcome 500 top experience creators from around the globe to demonstrate one powerful message: Collaboration and Partnership.
With partners such Dubai Tourism, Emirates Airlines, Atlantis The Palm and exceptional sponsors, leaders in the luxury wedding industry had 3 packed days to share ideas, challenges, learn, network and party on an unique international platform.
Every single detail was well thought out from airport transfers, check in and amazing personalised welcome gifts in bedroom – the little, personal touch that matter!
The Congress kicked off with a Sundowner Cocktail party at Nassimi Beach, Atlantis the Palm, dress code was Pantone colour of the year 2019: living coral. Oh what a night!
The formal meetings started at 8am each day with Inspirational Keynotes, Meetings, Exhibition, Lunchons, Roundtables with well timed Coffee breaks. Did I mention that we had bottles of gold water on tables? It was Dubai after all!
An Arabian Themed night was the first networking evening reception and dance party at Waldorf Astoria, The Palm.
The Gala dinner, ACE Awards and After party, was held at Asateer Tent, Atlantis the Palm. The night wasn’t just a night to honour and award excellence in the luxury destination wedding industry but it was truly an experience. If there is a script for a party, this was it!
Walking down and reflecting after 3 days of drawing inspirations, networking, making friends and partying! I knew that I will be leaving the Congress really excited about the future for Hannah Michael and grateful for being a part of the DWP family, knowing that collaboration is the future for destination events.
Did I mention that we got gifts each at meetings, seminar, in our rooms each day, I had excess luggage from give away! There was so much food, drinks, decor was fabulous, service was exceptional….A truly unforgettable experience, it was!
