A vibrant Manchester city centre hotel, located on the banks of the River Irwell, the Manchester Marriott Victoria & Albert Hotel exudes a historical charm that appeals to business and leisure travelers. This four-star hotel in Manchester was first built as a warehouse in 1844.
The Specialist Event Company Ltd worked with Margaret Ridings, Special Events Executive at the Hotel to bring you the Victoria & Albert Wedding Fair which took place on the 19th April 2015. The hotel provided the Room and we coordinated everything else from advertising the wedding fair to working with all the exhibitors.
Therefore we had banners made advertising the wedding fair. The banners were made by Need A Print. Next we created an event on Facebook and invited brides to attend. We also created an event on Stall Finder and Eventbrite. Stallfinder so that exhibitors could enquire about stalls and EventBrite so brides could register for their free tickets.
We also took an advert in the Lancashire Advertiser providing details of the wedding fair, who was exhibiting etc. Finally we had goody bags printed for the first 50 brides.
Each exhibitor was given exclusivity and in the end there were 20 Stalls, ranging from Wedding Stationery suppliers, Celebrant services to Venue dressers. Bella Rose Bridal Wear did a great catwalk show and John Kay entertained the visitors with Michael Buble and Frank Sinatra songs. I even got to dance with a stormtrooper….which made my day!!!
During the course of the wedding fair Manchester Wedding DJ Paul Gee provided background music.
The feedback from both the Hotel and exhibitors was positive and we look forward to working with you all again in the not to distant future.
