We, Vivaah Celebrations were honoured to be the Official Event Partners to shape up EWPC 2022 to make it a larger & grander celebration post the COVID crisis. Taking place from the 1st to the 4th of March 2022. EWPC was hosted at Sofitel the Obelisk, with evening events held at exclusive venues such as Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, JA Resorts, and Address Beach Resort Fujairah. 

This conference was attended by the worlds top wedding planners and event professionals. The 3-day sold-out event was an exclusive gathering of the industry’s best.

The conference was designed to give attendees the opportunity to network and form long-lasting relationships and explore business synergies.

The first day started with registration and a welcome from Rishikesh Shetty, founder of Exito and EWPC, in the Sofitel’s Obelisk Ballroom.  Following that, Dubai Tourism welcomed the delegates to the city and spoke about the UAE’s future. 

With his opening Key Note Speech, our Director and CEO Rahul Kumar had the honor of kicking off the conference. He presented his knowledge with the group by using numerous real-life situations and business strategies.

Throughout the day, we saw our peers on panel discussions and key note presentations.

The evening then transported visitors to Jumeirah Zabeel Saray for the Mission Impossible-inspired ‘Welcome to Arabia’ cocktails evening. Dancers on the podiums in the center of the lobby welcomed guests as they entered the gorgeous site with a central bar and live stations curated by the exceptional chefs, and the wonderful hospitality of the Jumeirah group.

The highlight of the evening was a spectacular performance by Shweta Subhram bringing all the attendees on the dance floor with her phenomenal voice through her renowned song ‘Jalebi Baby’ and many more. The evening then led the attendees to the terrace for Shisha, as the night continued. 

The next morning, the conference at Sofitel the Obelisk resumed early. Keynote addresses, panelists, and much more took place on the final day of conferences along with B2B meetings where planners connected with suppliers and hoteliers.  

When the attendees broke into their lunch session, the doors opened to reveal an immersive tropical experience. The afternoon saw Walter the Percussionist on his drums, Hula Island girls grooving to his beats, and a huge range of exotic cuisine to choose from. This afternoon, the attendees enjoyed their lunch while sipping on refreshing cocktails. 

The evening then welcomed guests to JA Resorts’ Grand Gala Dinner. Timeless Events adorned the beachside site beautifully with mirrored tables and stunning red roses. Arthur, the UAE’s only crystal saxophone musician, greeted the guests with amazing music. The Exito crew then presented the Gala Awards, after which the stunning and talented Lina Ammor captivated the night with her phenomenal energy and talent. The guests had a wonderful time dancing the night away with her power-pact performance.

After the 2 days of conference, a select few top industry professionals were hosted for a retreat to unwind and relax at the Address Beach Resort Fujairah where friends united to create some unforgettable memories.
