Yhere was no other venue other than the NEC that we wanted.

Gary Barbe, Event Director from UK Bridal week, said: “When we decided to add UK Bridal Week to our portfolio, there really was no other venue other than the NEC that we wanted. The location is perfect as it is so easily accessible for our visitors, but, having worked with the NEC previously, they are hands down the best Midlands venue for exhibitions.  We are very excited about working with the team to bring UK Bridal Week to life.”

Slated to be the bridal buying event of the year, the three-day event will give visitors the opportunity to make the most of the wealth of industry expertise and experience available. The team have already gained success with Rome Bridal Week, European Bridal Week and Rome Fashion Week.

The show will offer advice by dedicated bridal specialists through its Business Advice Centre with one- to-one sessions available to give advice to business owners.

NEC Business Development Executive, Jenny Wright, said: “We are looking forward to working with UK Bridal Week on their launch event. We currently don’t host a dedicated trade bridal show so it was a perfect fit for us. The show itself will be a fantastic asset to the bridal industry with its Business Advice Centre offering one- to-one sessions to business owners.”
