Arabia Weddings Educational Trip

Barcelona Turisme Weddings organised an educational trip for a group of wedding planners from Dubai to raise the profile of Barcelona and its surrounding area as a wedding destination. We would like to thank the leading online platform in the Middle East and North Africa, Arabia Weddings, for their support and for coordinating the event that attracted experts from the market. In addition to raising the profile of the destination, the event also showcased the excellent offer of Barcelona’s wedding market segment. During their busy four-day schedule, the participants were able to enjoy our city’s climate, history, art, culture and food. They stayed at the Majestic Hotel & Spa Barcelona, which is celebrating its centenary this year. Barcelona is a compact city that is perfect for holding any destination wedding, where every celebration can be unique and exclusive and tailored to the preferences and needs of the bride and groom. Our aim was to put together a different kind of programme, that was fun, relaxed and informal and would allow those taking part to discover hotels with a special charm; tucked-away places near the city with unique venues set in beautiful natural surroundings that are havens of peace; local partners with proven experience around the world... Those taking part in the trip included catering companies that create dishes for all cultures and palates; specialist photographers who make every special moment last forever; lighting experts and interior designers who transform any space into something extraordinary and ensure every event looks truly spectacular. Barcelona Turisme Weddings also coordinated and organised a series of special and exclusive visits. Barcelona is also a bridal fashion capital and home to bridalwear designers and internationally renowned labels. The participants visited bridalwear showrooms and the studios where every wedding dress is hand-made, and were able to talk to some of the designers. They also took part in an informal and fun flower-arranging workshop where they learnt how to decorate a table with rose petals and candelabras. They also had the opportunity to let their imaginations fly and decorate presidential tables with different materials, table linen and tableware for weddings. We’d like to share with you some of the testimonials we received from the participants: “ Thank you for such a wonderful program. Barcelona Turisme Weddings, did a wonderful job...The venues and suppliers were very well briefed. Thanks a lot. Looking forward to further collaboration”. Samar Shawareb, Arabia Weddings. “We at Muse Events would like to take this opportunity to thank Barcelona Tourism, Arabia Weddings and of course you for organizing the destination wedding FAM trip.  After the trip we felt confident to suggest Barcelona to our future clients, as you have made sure we were able to visit as many venues, hotels, suppliers, and wedding planners.
