1. The Momentous Decade Edition

Our humble journey began in 2014 with our debut edition in Greece. And since then there has been no turning back. After hosting editions in Thailand, Italy, Mexico, UAE, Indonesia, and Qatar, we have finally given in to the demands of hosting DWP in Africa! The 10th Annual will be taking place in Zimbabwe and we promise you it will be bigger, better and crazier. The love and support from the wedding industry kept us going through the years, and this year it is our turn to return all the love! In 2024, you will witness the momentous decade bash of the DWP Congress – something that you’ve never seen before!

2. An Unforgettable African Adventure 

Africa is a land of great culture and hospitality. Zimbabwe and Victoria Falls especially as a destination is so versatile that it has something to offer for everyone! Whether you are a safari lover, an adrenaline junkie, a nature admirer, or just someone who loves a new experience – Vic Falls has something for everyone! And what’s more is that this time around you will also get to witness Zimbabwe as a great upcoming destination for weddings, proposals and honeymoons.

3. World’s Leading Global Wedding Connoisseurs Under One Roof

Rub shoulders with the who’s who of the business and revive old friendships or foster new ones! Every attendee of the DWP Congress has been highly vetted and handpicked to ensure high quality of attendees. The DWP Congress is proud to be a truly global platform where the world of weddings comes together as one.

4. The Vic Falls Experience 

Like we mentioned, Vic Falls has a lot to offer and this is something you will see for yourself! As part of your DWP experience we want you to soak in as much of the destination you can so we have organized some cool activities for you! We are going to take you to a trip to the Victoria Falls National Park, where you will be able to witness the majestic Victoria Falls up-close to get awe-struck by the breathtaking views, and you’ll also get to a take a stroll along the rainforest to make our day even more memorable…we just cannot wait for you to experience this!

5. Resplendent Welcome Cocktail

Right around sunset you will be taken to the iconic Lookout Cafe where you will meet up and network with your peers from the industry all whilst sipping your favorite drink! The venue is a stunning open air cafe with unparalleled views of the Falls, you will love it! We’ll gather and raise a toast to each one of you for being a valuable part of our decade long journey!

6. A Train Journey Like None Other

This year is going to be all about experiences more than ever! We are going to be taking you for an iconic train journey. You’ll experience a golden hour bushtrack train adventure in a luxury steam train journey to the Victoria Falls Bridge, and the views complemented by the golden sunset and skies will be to die for…we are certain that this is going to be something you will thoroughly enjoy! So get ready to soak in every moment of this special train ride.

7. Let Loose At The Gala In The Wild

A gala dinner outdoors in the wilderness – need we say more?! This is what the epic gala dinner would unfold. Prepare to get transported to the ‘Garden of Eden’ where you and your friends will enjoy a delectable meal, and groove in the outdoors. The weather is going to perfect and while the setup is outdoors, it will still have the signature DWP luxe factor…so hang tight!

8. Fuel Insightful Discussions With Stellar Speakers

Conference sessions with keynote presentations, panel discussions and interactive sessions are a great way to stay abreast with industry trends, share knowledge and have a discussion with how to take the wedding industry forward. With great feedback received from our valued attendees, this year we are shaking up the conference game a little and have dedicated one-to-one workshops which will be smaller intimate groups for a more focused discussion on the topic of your choice. This year at DWP knowledge sharing will be elevated a level higher! Take a look at our stellar speaker lineup for the year!

9. It’s All About The Business! 

Pre-scheduled face-to-face meetings with planners and suppliers of your choice – this has and will remain one of DWP’s strongest pillars. There are over hundreds of meetings conducted over the two days and we have personally witnessed collaboration stories come to life through DWP! These meetings open avenues for future business, and not only that, if you could not meet any particular supplier or planner due to your packed schedule, there are endless opportunities for you to introduce yourself, establish connections and exchange business cards! After all, we are all in for the ROI isn’t it, and at DWP the opportunities for you to generate ROI are massive!

10. Cruisin’ & Sailin’ The DWP Enigma

We are thankful to you for sailing along our decade journey, and that is how we will bid goodbye to the 10th Annual DWP Congress! Yes, for our final evening function we will be taking you on a sunset cruise along the Zambezi River where you will take in the unmatched views of the sunset, having a great sundowner drink and just reminiscing the wonderful time spent with your friends and peers! And thats’ not it, be prepared to dance the night away because what’s DWP without an epic after party right?!

As you can see we are beyond excited to host you! Now all you need to do is pack your bags, get set and fly in to Victoria Falls where we’ll be ready to welcome you with open arms! See you soon!
