What makes organizing the Waterford Indian Wedding Expo & Shopping Event one of the best part of my job! by Kate Sandu

Powered by admin on February 1st, 2017

The Waterford Indian Wedding Expo & Shopping Event is all about your planning needs…all in one place…all in one day. We strive to make the process of finding and booking a vendor as stressless as possible! 
The purpose of the expo is to provide a platform for brides, grooms, family members, and party planners of all kinds to connect and interact with trusted vendors that offer quality products and services. 

We love being a resourceful tool for attendees that are in the pre-stages of envisioning their “special day”, but are concerned about finding the right vendors for the job!  

What sets this expo apart is that we want planners to have a wide variety of spectacular options that you don’t really see anywhere else.  Our vendors are reliable and ready to chat at length with guests. This saves couples and planners time and effort that would otherwise be spent doing a tedious search online trying to find each vendor and seeing if they’re legitimate. 

I love the fact that we do this at the Waterford Banquet & Conference Center facility because it gives our attendees a chance to speak directly with Djs, florists, photographers, hookah caterers, horse trainers, luxury car renters, etc. There is no better way to get a feel for what each service provider is all about. We want guests to see what’s being offered, to taste what’s being prepared, and to directly experience what might be the best fit for them! Only then can they make a truly informed decision about what will be the best solution for their event needs. 

Past attendees have found this experience to be so helpful that they book most of their vendors right then and there at the expo...making their lives much easier! They use their surplus of time for other things like resting up for their big day! 

In addition to couples the Waterford Indian Wedding Expo & Shopping Event is also a wonderful opportunity for vendors as well! Participants and presenters get to join in a partnership with other quality event businesses in order to build lasting professional relationships. 

We are continuously searching for new trends each time we produce the event, so we can continue to inspire couples with great new options that are vetted and reliable. This provides a new flux of businesses to meet and partner with. 

At the Waterford Banquet & Conference Center it’s our mission to embrace new trends in fashion, make-up, stage design, music, luxury cars, and many other impressive elements that are sure to dazzle guests. Hence, we aim to provide vendors the opportunity to network with one another, so that they can serve as power-partners for each other. 

The event is not limited to just brides and planners...anyone that is interested in seeing what the future of events looks like is welcome! 

New technology is definitely taking over the Wedding/Event Industry. For example, LED screens over fresh floral backgrounds, and/or Drones, Segway, GoPro Equipment, etc. are becoming the standard

Something that we are known for at Waterford Banquet & Conference Center is how we educate our guests on how they can enhance their guest’s experience by incorporating these technologies and propelling their wedding or party into the next century! We are experts at this because of the people we bring in to present at our expo. 

Only at the Waterford Banquet & Conference Center will you find expertise in new technologies meshed with live Donut Stations, or Hookah Lounges set up while Horses or Helicopters bring in the Bride and Groom

It is at our core to help you create a vision unlike anything you thought possible. That is why we associate with service providers that want the same thing. The Waterford Indian Wedding Expo & Shopping Event is the only place to find all these things under one roof! I highly recommend that you make a point of attending this super fun event!!!
