Why become an exhibitor?
We believe we host some of the very finest wedding fairs across many counties in the south of England. Please read the following to find out all of the great things we can offer to exhibitors of our events.
Extensively promoted & advertised events
We pride ourselves in the advertising of our events using social media, national wedding websites, magazines, leaflet distribution, road signage and through other events that we organise. We also ask all those exhibiting at the shows to publicise through their own social media and websites as well as on their premises and in their local area where deemed appropriate. We know from experience that this generates much more footfall than individual advertising alone.
We always allow a generous amount of space between exhibitors to ensure you can showcase your product, without you merging into your neighbours stand.
Sensible Category Limits
We will only ever have a maximum of 10% of the same product provider, ensuring that a wide variety of choice is on show on the day, so places are limited.
A Fair Price
We believe our stand prices are fair & highly competitive within the local area. We provide a table & two chairs after each exhibition we supply you with a comprihensive list from the couples data if they have opted in.
Set up is from 9:00am. We ask that all exhibitors are set up and ready 15 minutes prior to doors opening. Loading and unloading can be done outside of the venue. We then ask that your car be moved to the car park, which is located within 200m of the venue.
A Friendly Atmosphere
We make our exhibitors feel very much part of our events and this has been proven by the feedback from both our exhibitors and visitors that attend.
Professional Bridal Catwalk Shows
Our professional choreographed Bridal Catwalk Shows always pull brides and grooms into our events and are an important feature of our Wedding Exhibitions. We have 2 fashion shows at our events at 12 noon and 2pm, and these last no longer than 20 minutes so it doesn’t encroach on your day.
Quality Bridal Leads
We can accurately tell you how many brides and/or grooms we get through the door as we place stickers on all the brides that come through. This ensures we have an accurate number of those attending. The bride and/or groom’s details are also collected on the day and sent electronically free of charge after the day including email addresses & date of wedding where permission is given.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I attend one of your fairs?
We believe we attract some of the very best exhibitors in the local area at our fairs. We always have a vast selection of people who create a friendly and welcoming environment for you to be part of.
How do I secure a stand?
Initially you will need to complete and submit the Become an Exhibitor details. We will then email you all the event details for you to look over.
What are the timings?
The majority of our events are 11am till 3pm with last entry for brides at 2:30pm. However, please check all our exhibition details on this page or email us to confirm, just in case.
How many visitors do you expect at a fair?
This varies per event & we never guarantee attendance as no professional organiser can do this. For wedding exhibitions we get between 70-200 brides and/or grooms through the door (we only register the bride and/or groom and not the whole group visiting with them). Please remember that not only is it important to get a healthy number of brides and/or grooms to speak to, but also to get good quality list of potential sales leads which our events consistently deliver.
Where will I see the events promoted?
We pride ourselves in the advertising of our events using social media, national wedding websites, and magazines and through other events that we organise. We also ask all those exhibiting at the shows to publicise through their own social media and websites as well as on their premises and in their local area where deemed appropriate. We know from experience that this generates much more footfall than individual advertising alone. We have road signage wherever possible as well.
What products/services can I conduct from my stand?
You can only showcase the productsand or services that you have declared on your booking form & none other.
What should I bring with me for my stand?
We suggest you bring some relevant eye-catching material representing your product / service, as you only get one chance to stand out from the crowd!! Along with a friendly, welcoming smile! We are happy for you to run competitions / offers relating to your product / service on your stand.
You can always see pictures of other exhibitions stands from past events on our Facebook pages.
What is provided as an exhibitor?
We provide you with a rectangular table & two chairs, electricity (if required). We advise you to bring your own food and drinks, we do not provided tablecloths. Most of all you will get a professionally organised & run event along with a warm welcome!
Can I sell products from my stand?
Yes, you are free to sell your products on the day. Any food or drink based products sold must be sealed and not to be consumed on the premises. Tasters will be allowed and is defined as no more than a 25ml measure of alcohol (beer, cider, juices etc.) and for food small chunks / tasters offered singularly and not served as a miniature course of food, as this is the venues policy.
Is there a limit to how many events I can book?
No - you can book as many events as you want, although there are no discounts for multiple bookings, our competitive pricing structure does not allow for discounts.
Do you set limits per category?
We will only ever have a maximum of 10% of the same product provider, ensuring that a wide variety of choice is on show on the day, so places are limited. We have waiting lists of some categories as a result. It is vital you let us know what product / service you provide & what you put on your booking form is the only one you may publicise at the event.
Where will my stand be?
We make no guarantees on positions and position people to facilitate the best possible flow of visitors around the event. We try our best not to position same trades near each other & always ensure that visitors go around all parts of the event. If you have any special requirements or wish for your stand to be moved on the day, please let one of the Wedding Daze team know & we’ll do our best to accommodate. We will be there on the day to ensure you find your stand & have everything you need.
How do you allocate spaces?
Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Occasionally a cancellation space may arise in which case the waiting list will be emailed & the space posted on Facebook.
What advice can you give a new exhibitor?
Be prepared to come to a fair to engage with the visitors & get them excited about what it is that you are selling. They may not have considered your products / services before, so remember to speak to them in a positive way, that encourages them to really consider what you have to offer. If you haven’t exhibited before, ensure you come around one of our fairs first to get a feel for what other trades do to promote themselves to give you inspiration for your stand! Or contact us if you have any questions.
