Earlier this April, Los Cabos successfully hosted the top destination wedding connoisseurs from across 70 different countries at the 5th Annual Destination Wedding Planners (DWP) Congress, the world’s biggest platform for the destination weddings industry, edging out several national and global competing destinations to secure the sought-after event in Los Cabos for the first time.
The DWP Congress was hosted in partnership with the Los Cabos Tourism Board and the Mexico Tourism Board in the little paradise on earth, Los Cabos, from the 10th to the 12th of April 2018. The Tourism Board opened the doors to Los Cabos Convention Center, a breathtaking venue, that spanned an area of 25,922 m2 with 3 exhibition halls and 7 conference rooms, that was relaunched to host the DWP Congress.
Over the course of 3 days there were 4000 meetings conducted between top destination wedding planners from around the world with renowned Tourism Boards and Convention Bureaus, DMC’s, Luxe venues, photographers, designers, florists, catering companies, light architects, luxury couture linens, production companies and many more. The USP of the Congress, the one to one business meetings that were pre-arranged between our sponsors and partners as well as wedding planners were incredibly successful and emphasized every opportunity for our attendees to close deals and opened the door wide for future business collaborations.
Showcasing the best the destination has to offer – Los Cabos brought its best creative partners together and opened doors to some of the best venues in town to provide an unforgettable experience to some of the best planners in the weddings business. With a number of hotels under construction and growing connectivity across the globe, the Congress showcased Los Cabos’s potential as the efficient host of luxury weddings and special events.
After four years of highly successful annuals across the world from Athens, then Mauritius, to Florence and then Thailand, the Destination Wedding Planners (DWP) Congress was thrilled to make its mark in the fabulous Americas with the 5th annual successfully hosted in Los Cabos.
