The UK Wedding Venues Marketing Conference

Back in November the UKAWP Directors spoke at the inaugural UK Wedding Venues Marketing Conference in the lovely City of York.

The Conference was organised by Martin Evans of The Tourism Business at York Racecourse.

Predominantly targeted at Wedding Venues, the Conference was useful to all those involved in trying to drive more wedding business to Venues, with the delegate list including Registrars, Marketing Companies, Events Groups and, of course, lots of in-house coordinators and other representatives of Venues themselves.

Many were keen to start a dialogue with their local UKAWP members to learn how best to work together.

We were inspired by many of the other speakers who covered an eclectic range of topics, including  online marketing, ‘winning show rounds’, attracting couples from abroad, same sex marriages and ‘spa-tastic’ weddings, to name but a few.

We would like to thank The Tourism Business for the opportunity.
