GDEC Conference

Weddings are a once-in-a-lifetime celebration, and every couple desires to have an unforgettable experience. However, making this vision a reality, requires the collaboration of brilliant minds from different sectors. From Wedding Planners to Wedding Destinations, professionals in the Wedding Industry work together to collectively bring to life the dreams of the couple.

The same is the case with the Film Industry, wherein they are constantly on the lookout for newer, fresher, exotic locations across the landscape of India and abroad. And not to forget the many Celebrity Weddings that have taken place across these locations with the help of the Wedding Planners, many of whom have shot to fame overnight on account of these Celebrity Weddings.

The destination wedding industry has experienced significant growth in recent years. According to a report by Grand View Research, the global wedding industry is expected to reach USD 1.4 trillion by 2028, with destination weddings being a major contributor to this growth. This trend is attributed to the increasing popularity of destination weddings among couples, as well as the rise of the middle class in emerging economies.

One of the key highlights of the event is the Trade Show, which features exhibitors that includes Tourism Boards, Airlines, Cruises, Destinations, Hotels, etc. Exhibitors can showcase their products and services to a target audience of professionals and potential clients and generate leads and sales to create new connections that will take each participating company brand to newer heights.

In addition to the trade show, the event also features a range of educational seminars and panel discussions. These sessions are led by industry experts sharing their invaluable insights on topics such as destinations, wedding planning, photography, decor, food, technology, and many more.

Another important aspect of the event is the networking opportunities it provides. Attendees can connect with other professionals in the industry, as well as potential clients and collaborators. This networking can lead to valuable partnerships and collaborations, as well as new business opportunities.
