As we said in our blog last week, we’ve already got bookings for over half the stands for AWE18. However, if you’re still unsure, this week we thought we’d look at the benefits of exhibiting at the Asian Wedding Experience 2018 – with a few stats and some feedback from previous exhibitors.
A bit of history
We ran our first event in Oldham in 2008 so the Asian Wedding Experience 2018 will be our 10th show. In that time we’ve almost doubled the number of visitors attending, held the event at several different venues and grown from having 30 to around 55 exhibitors. The main focus remains however, being a showcase for modern Asian brides & grooms – not just a wedding fair. We’ve always chosen our venues carefully to provide the ultimate backdrop to the events
The benefits of exhibiting
If you want to really reap the benefits of exhibiting at the Asian Wedding Experience 2018, you need to be prepared to really get involved. It is an ‘experience’ for our visitors – one that immerses them in the endless possibilities open to them for their wedding. You get to showcase what you do – and show the brides & grooms why you love doing it. By showing them what you can add to their wedding, there’s immediately the chance to build a relationship with the couples and hopefully become their supplier of choice.
The AWE family
As an exhibitor at the Asian Wedding Experience you get access to our Supplier’s Lounge, a WhatsApp group and a chance to join a really active community of business owners within the Asian Wedding market. We always ask our exhibitors for feedback and here are a few examples:
I think the main thing for me is the sense of involvement, the whatsapp group, the banter, suppliers lounge event – it feels like we’re all connected and working towards the same goal. Its not like we have organisers on side and suppliers on another, feels like we are all part of the project if that makes sense!
Hey Everyone just caught up on the group banter, over 300 notifications on the group chat since I last came on 🙊🙈!!! Lol… Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Juel Monir & the Full AWE team. You all did a amazing job and the turn out at yesterday’s exhibition was awesome. It shows how much time and effort you guys put into promoting the show. Thank You to Kamran aswel who was very helpful throughout the day, it was greatly appreciated. It was lovely to eventually meet you guys and put some faces to names. Shame we didn’t get to meet you all, but shall certainly keep in touch and send potential customers your Way if I have anyone looking for what you guys do !!
Hey all i have to say i have loved every bit of being involved in awe from attending to the suppliers lounge to leafleting to exhibiting today its been a fab journey with you all. For those that know me well i have been “anti wedding shows” for almost a decade having had bad experiences with previous shows and therefore didnt do any shows for years. My experience with awe has been massively different, we are like one big family !!
Hope everyone is feeling good after yesterday. Me and my team really loved being part of the event. It was good to finally put faces to names! Wish I had the chance to speak to everyone. It looked amazing. All the stands were perfect! I will be bombarding the group with pics later today!
