Going Virtual!

Everything you need to get leads and do more business right now...

The Virtual Grand Wedding Expo is the perfect and ONLY solution available right now for wedding professionals looking to meet couples in large numbers, planning their wedding.

 

Due to the present COVID19 restrictions, all Bridal & Wedding Expos previously scheduled to take place in Massachusetts and some of the neighboring states are on hold. But the fact is, couples are not waiting to go ahead with their plans. The first half of 2021 is already getting flooded with this year's postponements and new wedding bookings as well.

For this reason, we decided to pivot the Fall/Winter shows from on-site events to Virtual Expos, and beyond that as we return to on-site event, they will all be hybrid. Right now this will be a great opportunity for you to still have a viable outlet to meet prospects, and book more weddings in a safe environment. 

Our Virtual Expo is not merely a digital facsimile of our face-to-face events. In addition, it was devised to also take full advantage of the opportunities that an online environment affords, offering algorithm-driven matchmaking with industry experts and thought leaders; one-to-one secure video meetings; live chats, and an innovative digital platform that makes during these two glorious days, networking, sourcing, lead capturing, booking appointments, selling and sharing inspiration feel entirely seamless.

This February 20-21 The Virtual Wedding Expo can be accessed from anywhere through an Internet connection and a desktop web browser, laptop, mobile phone, or tablet. And our unique state of the art highly interactive online platform, will feature a Virtual Wedding Expo Hall allowing the exhibitors and attendees to connect directly in real time via private or group chats, text, or email.

   You will be able to:

   • Exhibit your business during a scheduled time with a virtual booth

   • Chat live to answer questions and sell your products & services

   • Schedule meetings

   • Book weddings

   • Host Live Stream Sessions or pre-recorded video presentations, runways, etc.

   • Gamification providing incentives for the attendees to visit your "booth" 

   • Receive the leads list for follow-ups

SPONSORSHIPS:

We have a variety of ways for you to get involved as a sponsor. From Leaderboard exposure to Session presentation, prize giveaways, and more!

Contact us if interested in becoming a Sponsor.

MARKETING:

Just like we would for any live event, we are applying the same tactical promotional plan for our online events. Starting by inviting everyone in the ways we always have for in-person events: email newsletters, social media, and adding all our marketing arsenal to social media outlets, Google and YouTube ads. Our geographic target area is the 6 New England States plus New York state: ME, VT, NH, MA, RI, CT, NY.

Doing nothing now is the worst decision you can make. Jump aboard and rise to the top with the pack. You will be opportunely noticed, and prosperity will be your reward

The traffic for a virtual expo was amazing.  You did an excellent job marketing the show and it really paid off.  I had a lot of great conversations with brides and grooms.

I recently participated in the Virtual Grand Wedding Expo. I am certainly missing the days of large in person shows and talking to couples.

This show gave World  Wise Travel the opportunity to virtually meet them,  The chat feature and video options almost felt the same. Following up with them is an easy process .   It was a wonderful way to connect with a large audience.

Features in detail

Virtual Exhibit Booth:

This module offers a very interactive virtual experience, with built-in Live Video Chat for a constant live video meeting at your booth in real-time, available during the Exhibit Hall hours specified by the event. This one-on-one video networking communication with the guests will mimic the on-site experience, allowing attendees passing by to view demos, ask questions, and learn more about your products and services.

Each contact made with your booth will remain neatly registered as a Hot Leads resource for future contact.

You will be able to have up to 3 attendants at your booth during the event's scheduled times, to increase communication accessibility.

A video screen is also built-in your virtual booth to present pre-recorded videos and slideshows, with a maximum capacity of 100MB. 

Networking:

Exhibitor networking and lead capturing is a must-have for every organization looking to track and manage exactly who stopped by their virtual booth. This feature allows you and your staff to virtually collect contact information (name and email at minimum) and notes, capturing leads in real-time. Key contact information for your leads will be made instantly available to you in your exhibitor portal.

And as you renew your service monthly or annually, you will remain listed and available for prospects to return anytime to shop for their wedding planning needs.

Leads List:

List of all registered attendees. Within 24 hours after the event's end, you will receive an Email with a link to download an Excel file with all the future brides and grooms contact information.

Prize Pyramid: 

Our platform allows guests attending the event to accumulate points each time they contact an exhibitor, or session speaker during the event. As guests reach different score levels, they will have the option to redeem the earned points for great prizes, like vacations, gift cards, vouchers and more! This is not a game of chance, more proactivity will award the guests more point, which in turn will present the opportunity for the participating guests to choose prizes of higher value. This is a very powerful feature, providing you, the exhibitor, more traffic and the opportunity to 'meet', greet, and discuss wedding plans with more prospects.

Center Stage:

Showcase your expertise presenting a scheduled session in the event's program. This may be a Workshop, Demonstration, Tutorial, Virtual Tour, Runway Show and more.
