On the heels of the successfully concluded 3rd annual Destination Wedding Planners Congress (DWPC), QnA International, the organizer of the prestigious and exclusive event has begun preparations for the next edition of DWPC.
As the first step, the host country for the 4th annual DWPC has been awarded to Thailand! Amidst a plethora of exclusive destinations from across Asia, Africa, the Americas, Australasia, and Europe, Thailand’s bid emerged victorious. “Thailand has been a very strong contender, the country is already very popular among travellers and leisure seekers, and is also on the radar as a coveted destination for weddings and honeymoons. Given, the country’s reputation as a destination with deep-rooted cultural traditions, rich heritage and warm hospitality, we are extremely excited to get the ball rolling on the 4th edition!’’ said an enthusiastic Ackash Jain, Director of QnA International.
“We are very happy and proud that Thailand has been chosen as the host country for the DWPC, 2017. The attendees will have a chance to see the country’s readiness and we realise that this event is a great opportunity for us to showcase Thailand’s potential for the destination weddings and honeymoons’ market to the world,’’ said Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, Governor, Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT)—an organization which has been a regular attendee at the DWPC for 3 consecutive years.
According to a survey conducted by QnA International, results of which were released during the 3rd annual DWPC, Thailand was revealed as the top destination of choice in Asia for destination weddings and honeymoons. This is no surprise given Thailand’s cultural lure, natural beauty including scenic stretches of beaches, mountains, greenery, unique gastronomy, entertainment, and world renowned hospitality.
Thailand has been a popular destination for travellers and is a successful pioneer in promoting destination weddings and honeymoon tourism in Asia for some time now, having tapped into the Indian and Asia-Pacific market, however, Mr. Supasorn said, “While we attract travellers from Europe and the Americas, we have not been able to attract a substantial number who would hold their destination weddings and honeymoons in the country. We are hoping to reach this niche audience in these locations through DWPC 2017.”
The experience in destination weddings and honeymoons that Thailand has acquired through attracting couples include various wedding ceremonies whether it is by the beach, rock-climbing wedding, underwater wedding, traditional Thai wedding; and cooperation with luxury resorts and hotels, wedding planners, event organisers, and professional photographers, to offer competitive packages for the couples. Therefore, Thailand is well-poised to welcome couples who want a memorable and exclusive experience for their wedding and their guests!
With the flagship of the DWP Congress that took place in Greece, in 2014, the platform has grown from strength to strength spreading its wings to Mauritius in the Indian Ocean to the lap of Renaissance history in Florence and now to establish itself as a one-of-a-kind niche event in Asia, in a country known for its scenic diversity and ancient traditions- Thailand
