We are just a couple of days away from the decade anniversary of the DWP Congress, and we are pleased to introduce you to another one of our amazing partners we have collaborated with for the upcoming edition!

Meet Zillah Chilowa, Lead Event Planner of Tangerine Co from Zimbabwe who is the Event Designing & Planning Partner for the Congress. Tangerine Co has been at the forefront of event planning and design in Zimbabwe since 2006, specializing in creating unforgettable weddings and events. Talking about their collaboration with the DWP Congress, Zillah says “The DWP Congress provides us with a fantastic opportunity to collaborate with wedding industry experts and thought leaders, network with other key stakeholders, gain exposure to new ideas and innovations, and contribute to the advancement of the industry”.

“By bringing together diverse expertise and perspectives, this partnership can facilitate cultural exchange, foster creativity, and create economic prospects within the wedding industry” she further explains.

Being an expert in event designing and planning, Zillah shares with us her top 5 things to keep in mind when planning a stunning wedding. Take a look at what she has to share!

1. Familiarize With Client’s Vision

Consider the taste and interests of those hosting the event as well as the guests to create an experience that resonates with them.

2. Clarify Purpose & Goals

As an event planner you need to understand the purpose for the event and what you hope to achieve. This will direct all your decisions throughout the planning process.

3. Attention To Detail

It is very important to pay very close attention to every aspect of the event, from the venue decor to the catering, to create a cohesive and memorable experience for guests. Always look for innovative ways to give your client and guests the best event experience.

4. Budget Management

Make sure realistic budgets are set and funds are allocated wisely to ensure all aspects of the event are covered without overspending or coming short.

5. Communication & Coordination

As a planner it is very important to keep clear communication with all those involved in the event planning process, i.e. your service providers to ensure you are all on the same page and working towards a successful event, that will get your client to refer you to other clients as well as give you repeat business.

Zillah along with all our talented partners will be in Vic Falls from April 15th-17th 2024 and you have the opportunity to interact and build alliances with them, and share many such thoughts and insights! 

Zillah also feels that the DWP Congress would be a great opportunity to bring the African wedding industry to the forefront. She says “Collaborating with the DWP Congress and leveraging their network of experienced wedding planners and hoteliers worldwide presents a valuable opportunity to showcase African wedding traditions, innovations, and talents on a global stage”. She further emphasizes on this and explains “This positioning could indeed attract international planners seeking unique and convenient locations for hosting weddings, providing them with assurance in the form of a local partner with a deep understanding of the region”

We cannot wait to see you all in just a couple of days and we are excited for you to witness African adventure & hospitality through the lens of the DWP Congress.
