The Event

Wedding Industry Meeting is the event dedicated to Tuscan vendors operating in the wedding industry.

Conceived by Tommaso Corsini, founder/general manager of Corsini.Events Group, the event aims to collect the fragmented market of private events and weddings into a single collector. The ultimate goal is to make Tuscany a leader in the national and international wedding market, with the aim of developing common communication strategies.

The Format

Wedding industry Meeting is divided into two strategic and educational moments: B2B appointments scheduled between wedding planners and sector professionals; training conferences on various market changes.

During the meetings, national and international wedding planners will have the opportunity to get to know and deal with highly specialized vendors from Tuscany, such as flower designers, catering, photographers, videomakers, communication experts, service, hotels, venues, etc.

The panel discussion that characterizes the event is a moment of interaction and training during which experts, journalists or bloggers present their analysis of the market trend, with moments of comparison on the news and curiosities of the industry.
