The Exotic Wedding Planning Conference Dubai

written by


I am very excited to announce that our Arabian Academy is the academic partner for the Exotic Wedding Planning Conference in Dubai. The event is being held on the 5th & 6th of April at the Le Méridien Dubai Hotel and Conference Centre and is a fantastic opportunity for those in the UAE region to network and learn at the same time.
You may remember that our UK Academy took part in the Exotic Wedding Planning Conference in Barcelona last year and conducted a series of interviews with the speakers. These video interviews are now available on our YouTube Channel as part of our WEDTalk Video Series, so make sure you take a look.
At the Dubai conference I will also have the pleasure of being part of the speaker panel and presenting as part of one of the key topics, Mantra for Right Branding. I am really looing forward to meeting the attendees and spending time networking and getting to know and understand some of the challenges faced by wedding planners in this region.
The team here at the Academy will also be covering the conference as part of the April issue of the Wedding Business Magazine, so you will be able to see all the behind-the-scenes pictures and details when this publishes at the end of April.
I will also be sharing some ideas from the conference on our Instagram feed so make sure you follow us to stay up to date.
Attendance is by invite only so to find out more you will need to contact Priyanka Gupta by visiting the official conference website here.
I hope to see some of you there.
