Supplier Opportunities


As Kent’s leading wedding shows, The Wedding Experience presents a valuable opportunity for you to engage with thousands of visitors each year from across the region. With over 20 years of experience in the industry, our team are the best in the business when it comes to delivering high quality, professional wedding exhibitions.

The overwhelming reason engaged couples come to the shows is to find established and reliable suppliers for their wedding. Whilst fashion shows, samples, free magazines and prizes are an attraction, their main desire is to meet and talk with suppliers. As a result, our wedding shows provide an unprecedented opportunity for wedding professionals to present their products and capabilities direct to highly motivated couples. And in an environment that is far less price-competitive than the internet and far more likely to convert to a booking. 

Face-to-Face interaction: Nothing matches meeting prospective clients face-to-face. Even with a strong online presence, there is still a need for visibility so couples can meet you personally and discover what you offer. 

Great marketing: Exhibiting beats advertising - it allows for feedback and questions to be answered on your products or service and a check on your availability. And couples can make decisions on the day to book or arrange a consultation. 

Data: Developing your database is an important and cost-effective way of building your unique leads in a timely and cost-effective way and exhibiting provides the best opportunity to gather data in excellent quantities and with the most effective leads. 

Opportunities: Exhibiting enables new ideas and opportunities to develop, it encourages collaboration and allows you to meet other businesses for cross-referral, networking, inspiration and support.

Brand building: Build trust in your business and showcase your service or products with other dynamic companies and individuals within the wedding industry.

Managing your time: Why spend several Sundays out at a variety of smaller wedding fayres when you can see hundreds more couples in just one day with The Wedding Experience? 

Maximise your booking: Utilise your exhibition booking to invite prospects and clients to meet you and view your display and build those relationships further. And share your exhibition dates to increase followers on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
