The World’s Strongest Business To Business Platform In The Destination Wedding Industry

Leading the destination wedding industry for over half a decade now, the Destination Wedding Planners (DWP) Congress is an exclusive, ‘by invitation only’ conference that is focused on luxury destination wedding professionals who are looking to collaborate with like-minded connoisseurs in the wedding business to glean fresh perspectives, do business and network with some of the top creative partners and suppliers from all over the world.

The DWP Congress has grown rapidly from its first annual in Greece in 2014 and has successfully made its mark in top destinations across the world from Mauritius to Florence and Thailand, traversing different continents and brought this exclusive extravaganza to the sunny Americas in Los Cabos, Mexico for its 5th Annual in 2018.

For its next edition, Dubai, the dazzling city of superlatives has won the bid and are the official hosts of the 6th Annual Destination Wedding Planners (DWP) Congress, scheduled to take place from the 27th to the 29th of March 2019 - at none other than the supremely luxurious and iconic ‘Atlantis, The Palm Hotel’ the crowning glory of the incredible man – made Palm Island in our lovely ‘City of Gold.’

Staying true to its ethos and elevating its experience for its 6th Annual in Dubai, the DWP Congress is taking you on an Arabic adventure and has set the stage to unveil 6 brand new shades of DWP for 2019. Ranging from the ‘DWP Main Stage Day’ to ‘DWP Capture’, from the ‘DWP ACE Awards’ to the ‘DWP Storytellers’; the much awaited ‘DWP Regional Reveal’ and a riveting ‘DWP Swank Show’ to boot, 2019’s experience is guaranteed to blow your mind!

Stay tuned! It’s going to be amazing!!
