The Unconventional Wedding Festival is a wedding fair like no other...!
Whatever your perception of a wedding fair is, let it go and be prepared to open your mind to a whole new concept in customer attraction.
The aim of The Unconventional Wedding Festival is to provide a unique experience for Festival Goers and Exhibitors alike.
Festival Goers will get inspiration in abundance, and have their eyes opened to suppliers they didn't even know existed. They'll have the opportunity to connect with suppliers who can bring their wedding vision to life and help them create a wedding that truly reflects their personalities.
And you, as Exhibitors, will get the opportunity to really showcase your talents, making attracting your ideal customers much easier.
Key Festival Information...
There will be no stands! Yes, you read that right...no standing behind tables hoping couples will stop and talk to you, or spending your time exchanging awkward pleasantries with couples who simply aren't your ideal customer
Instead you will have the opportunity to be part of one of our immersive wedding experiences, aimed at really getting Festival Goers creative juices flowing. There will be eight creative Zones for you to choose from, plus a Pop Up Spa and Pop Up Hotel. As part of a team, you will get the opportunity to really showcase your talents within the Zones by pulling together the key elements of a wedding (but don't worry...you won't be expected to cater for 100+ guests!)
As well as our Zones, there will also be lots of other ways you can be involved in the Festival. You could gain even more exposure throughout the Festival by signing up to host one of our workshops or be a delivery partner for one of our Experiences
You will have dedicated Consultation areas where you can sit down with qualified leads in comfort. Festival Goers will be able to book consultations in advance of the event, or on the day itself
We care about our suppliers as much as we do our visitors and want to make sure your experience is as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. As part of our Exhibitor experience, you will receive a Festival Survival Pack to keep and a dedicated Exhibitor Chill Out Zone. There will be various accommodation options available for those who would like to stay over, which will be made available nearer the time...and yes, that includes camping options
The Unconventional Wedding Festival will be a weekend experience and exhibitors need to be prepared to invest significantly more time than they might normally do for a traditional wedding fair. Set up will be on the Friday morning to allow time for a photo shoot for each Zone ahead of the Press Launch and Supplier Networking on Friday evening. Take down will not start until late Sunday afternoon after the Festival has closed to the public
As an Exhibitor, you can expect considerably more exposure than you might expect at a traditional wedding fair. As well as significantly higher visitor numbers, which we expect to be in the thousands over the weekend, we will also be harnessing the power of the Press (Regional, National and Wedding-specific) before, during and after the event to maximise exposure for our Exhibitors and Sponsors
