The largest B2B platform for the destination & luxury destination wedding industry is back again with a stellar lineup of wedding planners & designers joining from across the globe


The biggest platform for the destination wedding industry – DWP Congress is bringing together the crème de la crème of the wedding industry to explore Qatar as a luxury wedding destination from 14th-16th March. The event is supported by Visit Qatar as the Official Destination Partner, Qatar Airways as the official Airline Partner and St. Regis, Doha as the Official Hotel Partner.

After hosting the FIFA World Cup 2022, Qatar has earned a spot as one of the most opulent destinations in the globe attracting people from the far East to the West. Now the magic has spread among couples who are sourcing their wedding destination to tie the knot in 2023 and are strongly eying Qatar as it is renowned as an opulent wedding destination with a rich cultural heritage.

The only event of its kind in the world that brings together the world’s most sought-after destination wedding planners under one roof, The 9th Annual of Destination Wedding Planners Congress – DWP organized by QnA International, is bringing together 500 wedding connoisseurs, from more than 70 countries and has made a strong mark in the industry since its inception in 2014.

Echoing similar sentiments as the destination appeals, the theme of this year’s Congress is “Opulent Extravaganza” with an aim to showcase the best of what Qatar can offer as a luxury wedding destination to couples and suppliers. After having successful annuals in Greece, Dubai, Mexico, Florence, Thailand, Mauritius, and Bali, the wedding community is excited to explore this exotic destination which is the epitome of luxury in every sense.

Chairman of Qatar Tourism and Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Qatar has now become a key global tourist destination on the world map which gives us more motivation to strengthen Qatar’s positioning in different sectors. With this being said, we are proud to be chosen as one of the destinations to host the Wedding Planners Congress 2023, the most prestigious B2B gathering in the multi-billion-dollar wedding industry. We are also delighted to welcome the best wedding planners and designers to Doha.”

Ackash Jain, Director of QnA International, organizer of the prestigious DWP Congress said: “Qatar is one of the most fascinating countries in the world to tie the knot with its majestic palatial resorts and striking oceanic backdrops. Combining old-world hospitality with cosmopolitan sophistication seamlessly opens the door to planning some of the most opulent celebrations. We are proud to bring the world’s biggest destination wedding congress to Qatar, which will be perfect timing right after the FIFA World Cup. With the support of Qatar Tourism, we look forward to showcasing the best of Qatar as a wedding destination to leading wedding experts from around the world.”
