The past year has been seismic in the wedding industry with all of us being unable to do what we love. The light at the end of the tunnel though has been the backlog of couples and the subsequent industry boom upon reopening. This Symposium will cover the implications for this uptake in the weddings industry and the impact on your businesses in both the short and long term.
Over two days of sessions over twenty speakers from the UK at The Carlton Tower Jumeirah, Knightsbridge will impart their expertise and knowledge to help both the wedding industry and your own businesses recover from the past 18 months and prepare for the future. Please see the video below from our last Symposium in 2019 for a taster of what November 2021 will bring.
Our evening events are legendary (do see the video of our Halloween party in 2019 below) and this year we are raising the bar even higher. Proceedings commence on the 2nd Nov with a special evening at The Shangri La at The Shard with an alpine Chalet Chic evening. Our friends at The Swiss Tourist Board will change Europe’s highest hotel into a Swiss evening to remember - and no skis required! The second night is traditionally when we let our hair down and The Berkeley Hotel will be the wonderful host to a Soaring 2020’s party. Expect a modern take on dapper flappers, the Gatsbyesque Jazz Age and an abundance of excess. For the evening of the 4th we will don our black ties for our gala awards dinner at The Dorchester. Please see the separate webpage on these Oscars of the wedding industry HERE
. We suggest you take the Friday off to recover.
