The National Wedding Show returns to Olympia London for the first industry event of its size since the pandemic
The UK’s leading wedding event, The National Wedding Show returns to Olympia London on 18 and 19 September where the event has established itself over the past 25 years as the ultimate destination for wedding planning.
With thousands of couples visiting the shows every season, Olympia London will welcome the first industry event of this size to take place since the pandemic when around 150,000 weddings were postponed, posing an enormous challenge for the entire wedding industry.
Following current government guidelines and introducing Covid safety measures, both venue and organiser Ocean Media Group have prepared the perfect platform for the wedding industry to reopen; and for thousands of couples to resume the planning for their big day.
With the lifting of restrictions, couples are now looking forward to their big day going ahead later this year and in 2022/23 and are feeling more confident than ever about booking their suppliers. A recent survey conducted by Confetti in partnership with the National Wedding Show revealed that whereas the pandemic increased the length of their engagement (61%) the majority at 66% stated that their wedding budget was not impacted with 50% of respondents planning on attending the National Wedding Show.
Cassandra Denman, Group Show Director says “We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to improve our visitor experience with exciting new features, to attract more wedding planning couples to the show than ever. The level of ticket sales we’ve seen in the past few months has been unprecedented. There’s a real buzz around the events this Autumn and we can’t wait to be back, supporting the best suppliers the wedding industry has to offer as they get back on their feet after a challenging 18 months.”
The Autumn 2021 Shows will include over 150 leading wedding suppliers, a stunning Catwalk, the WED Talk Theatre, the VIP Lounge and The Viktor & Rolf Champagne Bar.
