Destination Wedding Planners Congress 2018

We had the distinct privilege of being invited to speak at 5th Destination Wedding Planners Congress in Los Cabos, Mexico. The Congress was conducted in partnership with the Los Cabos Tourism Board and The Mexico Tourism Board and as always did not disappoint. The DWP Congress saw over 600 attendees from 70 countries and it was an honor and humbling to share this global platform with the esteemed speakers. 

As soon as we landed, we were greeted by mariachi band and Mexican dancers. We were then whisked away to a private area which was set up by DWP to welcome attendees. Refreshments and snacks were offered and we were then driven to the resort in a town car. Cabo del Azul is a stunning resort and after we were met by the GM of the property, we were escorted to our penthouse suite. This was another highlight of the trip. The 3,000 sq feet suite is impeccably furnished by Mexican artisan resort employs 70 carpenters whose job is to create all furniture pieces and wood work and it is by far the finest I have seen. 

Here is a peek at our penthouse!





We had a couple of hours before the opening cocktail party which was a 30 minute drive from the resort and decided to chill and take it easy. Opening party was at a golf course and it was nice to see old friends and make new ones. 



 
 
Second day was the start of conference and as always check in was seamless. We got to listen to the most dynamic leaders in the industry and the scheduled meetings with the suppliers were extremely beneficial. Decadent lunch, and plenty of snacks hot coffee and tea were served all day. 

  
Evening event was the opening gala which was again off site in a canyon. Vendors had gone all out from lighting, rentals, entertainment, flowers etc and a fabulous night was enjoyed by all. 

Next day the conference started again by a dynamic speaker and afternoon was devoted to work shops and break out sessions. To our surprise, our session was so popular that the organizers ended up moving us back to the convention center.
 
After our talk, we rushed back to the hotel to get ready for the farewell party which was again at an off site location at Acre. What fun we had at this boho chic event. From the venue to food, entertainment, ambiance and everything else it was truly a unique and fun experience.

  Like all good things must come to an end, such was the case with this night. We reluctantly said good buy to our old and new friends and boarded the plane next morning to head back to LA.

Can’t wait for DWP to announce the next location for the 6th Congress!!!!
