The Mexico Tourism Board (MTB) has announced that Los Cabos will host the Destination Wedding Planners Congress (DWP) from April 10 to 12, 2018. The congress is considered to be the most important event in the wedding industry and is celebrated annually in top wedding destinations across the globe.

More than 400 participants from 60 countries, including the top 150 wedding planners in the world, are expected to attend.

Los Cabos is a top luxury destination in Mexico, which, as a whole, hosts more and more events and unique weddings. Mexico has the infrastructure as well as state-of-the-art technology, suitable for all types of meetings and events, tourism officials said.

The niche market of romance tourism is a substantial area for business that is constantly growing. Out of the 350,000 couples from around the world that have destination weddings each year, recent studies suggest that nine percent of them do so in Mexico. In the past five years, destination weddings have increased by 50 percent in the country, which is why MTB fully supports Los Cabos Tourism Board’s strategy to promote the area as a wedding destination. MTB is committed to continue to promote is romance offerings including this important event, throughout the entire country.

The DWP, which has previously taken place in Greece, Mauritius, Italy and Thailand, is distinguished for bringing together the best in the luxury wedding industry and for its high-end offerings. The event includes exhibitions from the most exclusive destinations, extravagant hotels and exceptional settings, along with top wedding suppliers and creative partners such as fashion designers, renowned photographers, exclusive jewelers, prominent chefs and much more.

For the Mexico Tourism Board, the DWP 2018 will serve as a catalyst for greater collaboration with the destination wedding industry around the world, and further attests Mexico’s position as the leading country for romance tourism.
