Exactly one year ago, Florence had the honour and privilege of hosting the Destination Wedding Planners Congress (DWP), a yearly appointment of great prestige in the Destination Wedding Tourism field. The kermesse brought together the top Destination Wedding professionals from over fifty countries, all under one roof. The DWP Congress is an exclusive occasion with a one-of-a-kind format, and it is the only invite-only event for professionals of the field.
An international occurrence, the outcome of which has further established the image of Florence as a leading location for Destination Weddings. Florence, in fact, is among the most coveted places in the world, due to the charm of its palaces and its romantic atmosphere, where old meets new.
Destination Weddings are a growing trend. Thanks to the increase in wealth, always more couples choose to get married outside their native country. In recent years, Florence has hosted many important ceremonies and weddings. Even VIPs, including Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, Melissa Joan Hart and Mark Wilkerson, and the daughter of Indian tycoon Jindals, to name a few, have chosen Florence as the city in which to celebrate their wedding reception.
The vision and effort by the Florence Convention & Visitors Bureau has allowed the Tuscan city to win the tender for the 2016 DWP Congress and, just like a conceited peacock, Florence stood up to the occasion and showed off its glorious colourful feathers to show the crème de la crème of the Wedding Industry its capacity to transform dreams into reality. The effort and support by all the Members of the FCVB have been crucial for the outstanding success of the DWP Congress.
The Corsini.Events group effected the organisation of the Gala Dinner, and also provided the magical venue of Villa Corsini a Mezzomonte, hence carrying out a key role in the success of the Congress. An unforgettable night consisting of music, great food, wine, fun, networking, and twists and turns, which allowed attendees to know all of the different shades of Florence as a Wedding Destination.
Hence, the DWP showcased the importance of the Gala Dinner, which has acquired an always more important role for the success of events and meetings in the field. To organise a gala dinner in an environment that is special, evocative, and also emotional, is an ideal formula to leave attendees with an amazing memory.
