iwed 2015The much-anticipated International Wedding Exhibition and Fashion Show (IWED) 2015 is set for its 8th edition from 29 April to 2 May 2015 at Doha Exhibition Center.

Just like in preceding years, IWED 2015 has garnered top names and labels in the wedding planning, hospitality, fashion and related industries with more than 110 exhibitors and many valuable sponsors and partners, all of which will make this impending IWED a unique showcase of the best that’s available in wedding products and services in Qatar. Commenting on IWED’s reverberating success after seven successful editions, Chief Executive Officer of Qatar Expo, Hadi Al Zain Ali, said:

With Qatar emerging as a leading destination for both business and pleasure seekers, the exhibition industry has subsequently flourished as a platform for retailers and market players to remain at the forefront of all new developments and showcase their best products and services to end users and other corporate entities, therefore enriching business networking and exchange while shifting the focus to quality and customer service in this very competitive arena. In this same breadth, IWED continues to be one of the wedding sector’s key events in the region and a strategic appointment for the luxury market in the Middle East as it goes beyond the traditional wedding show to provide an opportunity for brides-to-be and grooms-to-be to find a complete array of the finest and latest products and services for their most special day, and for service providers, vendors and manufacturers to showcase their products and services.’

IWED 2015 will be inaugurated by Qatari celebrity, socialite and founder of DNA Records, Dana Al Fardan, and will feature daily fashion shows by famous designers and daily entertainment programmes and several mesmerising performances.

The exhibition and fashion show event is expected to attract some 13,000 local and international visitors this year which will bring forth new exhibits showcasing the changing styles of an international wedding conception with exhibitors originating from Qatar, Italy, India, UAE, Bahrain, Lebanon, Kuwait, KSA and UK.

IWED is organised by Qatar Expo, specialised in conceptualising and managing exhibitions, conferences, and tailored events. The event is sponsored by Royal Events as Pearl sponsor, Isadora as exclusive make up sponsor, Frames as official hair stylist sponsor with Melia Doha being the official hotel partner.

Several support sponsors have also pitched in to add value to the wedding supply chain including Elegant Events, YaHala Events and Royal Flowers as event management establishments offering comprehensive wedding planning services, in addition to Ludica Antiqua and Trinity Talent Qatar, a leading talent agency providing wedding and event staffing as well as models for designers and photographic services to exhibitors and organisers.
