Bride: The Wedding Show announces debut at Bournemouth International Centre

Posted on 30th May 2018


Bournemouth International Centre’s 2019 wedding exhibition is set to relaunch as Bride: The Wedding Show, delivering an even bigger and better event for engaged couples.

Archant Bride and BH Live have announced a partnership to relaunch Bournemouth International Centre’s annual wedding exhibition in celebration of the event’s 25th year.

Bride: The Wedding Show at Bournemouth International Centre takes place from Saturday 23rd to Sunday 24th February when visitors have the chance to connect with local wedding suppliers ahead of their big day. From florists and photographers to dresses and décor, couples will find all they need to plan their wedding under one roof and benefit from the expert advice and guidance on offer.

There will be show-exclusive deals, discounts and competitions, as well as complimentary copies of Dorset, Wiltshire & Hampshire Bride magazine. Attendees will also enjoy a jam-packed itinerary of entertainment including the spectacular catwalk show.

Running several times each day, the catwalk will parade the latest fashions in wedding wear to an electric arrangement of music and choreography. A firm favourite with visitors to Bride: The Wedding Show at other leading venues across England, the catwalk is not to be missed.

Bride: The Wedding Show will bring a fresh approach and lease of life to the existing wedding exhibition at Bournemouth International Centre, one of the largest of its kind along the south coast.

Pat Coyne, BH Live’s director of venues and events, says: “This is superb news that will see the wedding show and exhibition taken to the next level. With Archant’s specialist knowledge, national presence and industry expertise the show continues to grow. Exhibitors and visitors can expect an even bigger and better show to help them plan one of the most memorable days of their lives.”

Peter Timperley, executive director of magazines for Archant says: “We are very pleased to be able to continue the expansion of our market leading portfolio of regional wedding shows through this collaboration with BH Live. Our shows excite and enthral thousands of couples every year and we look forward to bringing our winning format to Bournemouth next spring.”

Exhibitors will be able to take advantage of Archant Bride’s portfolio of products, including marketing and media packages designed to promote their presence at the event, drive footfall and boost visitor engagement.
