2015 Showcases


The Event Connections Wedding Showcases

Each year The Event Connections hosts a series of Wedding Showcases that feature a unique experience for any bride or couple in the process of planning a wedding. Rather than bring a bride into a maze of cubed vendors, we bring her into an actual reception so that she can experience the sights, sounds, tastes, smells, and feel of an amazing event. As a vendor, you will be part of the event which makes you approachable and able to engage with a bride who visually understand what vendors can do for her.

Not only is the environment friendly for starting a conversation, it’s cost-effective for vendors with exciting table-top displays that are sized just right for each participating vendor. Space is available to non-member vendors starting at just $295 for a bistro table, or $395 for a 6′ table and additional floor space, as needed.

A typical event sees up to 150 brides and attracts as many as 450 people. Brides tend to be upscale and want to spend time meeting with vendors. What are vendors saying? That this type of event definietly attracts the quality bride who has a budget and is ready to book her vendors.

Here’s the run-down of the 2015 Showcases:

The Presidential Wedding Showcase – Sunday, January 4, 2015

The Presidential Center, Kettering, OH

The Presidential Center has been fully remodeled and is an amazing way to start the busy wedding shopping season. This event features four rooms each set up in a different reception or decor format. There will even be a “man cave” for the guys. The event features outstanding food displays in each area and also has a cash bar so that guests can make a day out of there visit.

The Fort Piqua Plaza Wedding Showcase – Sunday, February 8, 2015

The Fort Piqua Plaza, Piqua, OH

This is the newest of the Wedding Showcases and will take place in the beautifully restored Fort Piqua Plaza. This historic venue is not to be missed and is expected to attract brides from Dayton and all points north. Again, we’ll be creating an amazing reception experience that brides will want to come and see so that they can get ideas for their big day.

The Yankee Trace Wedding Showcase – Saturday, March 7, 2015

You’ll definitely want to be at The Event Connections Wedding Showcase!
