National Wedding Show Acquisition Explained!

After the recent acquisition of this long-established wedding show, held bi-annually in London and Birmingham, we speak to Cassandra Denman, Group Show Director about the new plans for the National Wedding Show.

Congratulations on the acquisition of the National Wedding Shows! When did the transaction take place? The contracts were signed at the beginning of July. We’re now settled into our lovely new home at the Business Design Centre.

Please introduce the new team The new owner of The National Wedding Shows is Otis Media Ltd. Managing Director, Matthew Lambert is well versed in the events industry, having successfully run Maelstrom, an events operations business for the past 18 years. The fabulous National Wedding Show team have remained in place so that exhibitors can expect consistency with their account management.

Will the autumn shows go ahead as planned? Yes, absolutely! The autumn shows are going fantastically well, with the floorplan nearly full and ticket sales tracking well ahead of previous years.

Will there be any major changes in the short term? No, there won’t be any significant changes in the short term. Our sole focus is delivering a successful autumn season for our exhibitors and an incredible wedding planning experience for our visitors.

Will the team stay on and stay put? The National Wedding Show team is the most passionate and dedicated I’ve ever worked with. We’re excited to see where this new chapter at Otis Media takes us.

What are your plans for the shows in 2024 and beyond? In the long term, we’ll look to make the shows bigger and better than ever through brand partnerships and exciting content for our visitors. We’re also looking to bring the show to new locations within the UK – so watch this space!

If I have a stand booked at one of the shows, what will be the difference to me now? No difference at all! The team, suppliers and onsite experience will remain the same.
