Whitsunday Times - - BETTER BUSINESS / WHITSUNDAY BUSINESS -

THE Whit­sun­days wed­ding in­dus­try is ex­cited about the inau­gu­ral Whit­sun­days Wed­ding and Hon­ey­moon Expo to be held at the PCYC on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 23.

The event is be­ing or­gan­ised by Whit­sun­days Mar­ket­ing and De­vel­op­ment Limited (WMDL) in part­ner­ship with key mem­bers.

WMDL act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Daryl Hud­son said ex­hibitor stands at the event have now sold out with over fifty lo­cal busi­nesses at­tend­ing.

“The Whit­sun­days wed­ding in­dus­try will be show­cas­ing their prod­ucts and ser­vices to a large con­sumer base,”

“The expo is be­ing mar­keted by WMDL in part­ner­ship with wed­dingswhit­sun­days.com and is part of a larger Wed­dings in the Whit­sun­days cam­paign,” Mr Hud­son said.

“There is a huge mar­ket­ing push be­hind the event to en­cour­age the re­gional drive mar­ket to not only at­tend the event but to spend a week­end away in the Whit­sun­days,’ Mr Hud­son said.

“The expo pro­vides a ma­jor op­por­tu­nity for our lo­cal wed­dings in­dus­try to con­vert in­ter­est and ex­hibitors are very ex­cited about the ini­tia­tive,” Mr Hud­son con­cluded.

Deb­bie Savy, chair of wed­dingswhit­sun­days.com and owner of Tropix Pho­tog­ra­phy said the event was a great ini­tia­tive.

“A uni­fied wed­ding and hon­ey­moon expo has long been an event the wed­dingswhit­sun­days.com com­mit­tee have been want­ing to see hap­pen,” Mrs Savy said.

“As a lo­cal busi­ness owner, be­ing pro­vided with an op­por­tu­nity to exhibit at such an event can re­ally do won­ders for po­ten­tial new busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties,” Mrs. Savy con­cluded.

NEW EXPO: Mem­bers of the lo­cal wed­ding in­dus­try Jade Korosec, Mercedes Ire­land, Wendy Blew, Lau­riely Tay­lor, Kim Har­ris, Brooke Miles, Sandi Hol­man and Deb­bie Savy are ex­cited about the up­com­ing expo.
