wedding professionals Attending Show:
With the exception of our Honored Guests, registered Event Planners and Venue Managers*, absolutely no outside [non-exhibiting] wedding vendors are permitted in the Wedding Party EXPO during show hours. The Wedding Party EXPO is an opportunity for engaged persons and those planning events to meet with quality businesses in a respectful and stylish atmosphere. We do not use the show as a marketing opportunity for potential exhibitors to scope out show out of respect for our exhibitors. Any “Guerilla Marketing” by outside businesses [non-contracted companies who attempt to promote themselves to exhibitors or attendees] steals from both the exhibitors and attendees. Anyone attempting to promote themselves in this way will be escorted out of show, banned from future events and prosecuted for damages. *Event Planners and Venue Managers may register at front desk and sign a card agreeing that you will not promote yourself or face legal action.
We dissuade outside companies from attending the show – the Exhibitors feel it is disrespectful to have outside [non exhibiting] wedding companies at the show walking around seeing what other businesses are doing. The Wedding Party is a show solely for engaged couples to meet amazing wedding services. The Wedding Party holds a very strict no-promotion policy for attending wedding industry during show hours.
Only Honored Guests with invitations may discuss business during show hours. All other industry professionals must register as a wedding professional at door and may take information but may not hand out their own cards to exhibitors or attendees except at After Party.
Wedding Pros please register as Wedding Professional to get into a show After Party which is open to any and all vendors. [After Party not at all shows.]
