INFORMATION PACK FOR EXHIBITORS

 

OUR MISSION

 

….. to inject style and excitement into wedding fairs – forget awkward silences, our couples will walk into a vibrant, lively fair full of energy, colour and inspiration.

 

VENUE

A BOATSHED

The Longshed and Whisstocks Place

WOODBRIDGE

We will be utilising both inside space at the Longshed Whisstocks AND outside space at Whisstocks Place (adjacent to the boat shed). This is a brand new, fresh, innovative and exciting development on Woodbridge waterfront. It is only a two minute walk to the high street - so the location is central.

 

The main inside exhibition space will be on the mezzanine level inside the Longshed: this is a bright, vibrant exhibition space overlooking the building and reconstruction of the viking boat at Sutton Hoo - making the space exciting, quirky and cool.

 

We will also set up exhibition space downstairs, near the large roller shutter doors which will open out and flow seamlessly into the outside exhibition space on Whisstocks place. The outside exhibition space is large and sits right on the waterfront. 

OUR VISION…

 

INSIDE: Vibrant indoor show full of edgy, unique and colourful suppliers.

 

OUTSIDE: live music, glitter bar; outside exhibitors and cool creative market.

There will also be an exciting, cutting-edge catwalk show leading to the waterfront.

 

 

JOIN THE PARTY

This is not a show for the traditional; we want to celebrate creativity, carefree vibes and appeal to cool, free spirited, style-led couples.

 

If you are an alternative, artisan, cutting-edge supplier, then we want to hear from you!

 

 

WHY CHOOSE US

You will be a part of the most exciting wedding show Suffolk has seen.

The show will attract a targeted audience who will be looking to make the most of this one-off opportunity to source and book unique suppliers.

 

We will give you great exposure, including: social media shout outs and a feature in our blog "The Line up".

Our show will provide great networking opportunities with like-minded wedding industry creatives AND you will meet couples and brides who will love what you do.

Our main selling point? This is our third show and year after year our visiting couples come from far and wide to meet in person suppliers they have admired and followed on their insta and social media feeds. This is their opportunity to find in abundance cool and creative suppliers all together under one roof. We are not exaggerating when we say they literally arrive with tick lists and actively seek to make bookings.

 

Our last two shows have attracted on average 100 + couples - whilst this may not be the larger footfall associated with other more generic fairs, we can say with confidence that our visiting couples are QUALITY customers seeking to book rather than just simply browse.

 

 

 

OUR PROMISE TO YOU

Whilst we cannot guarantee hundreds through the door, we do promise to work our socks off to make this one hell of a show. We will invest in an extensive advertising campaign, but, more than that, we will invest our time, our energy and passion to make this work…..

LASTLY...

 We want to showcase THE VERY BEST and bring Brides and Grooms the coolest and creative suppliers around. The overwhelming feedback from exhibitors at our last two shows was that we attracted a targeted audience; it was profitable for exhibitors with many taking lots of bookings both on the day itself and afterwards. Brides and Grooms were also impressed by the uniqueness of the suppliers, inspiration and atmosphere of the show. They had seen the line up, knew who was exhibiting and came specifically to meet their faves. We want to retain this energy, excitement and sense of anticipation and will be promoting this show as a totally one-off, unique experience. We are not going to be running another show this Summer - this is it.
