The countdown to the ninth annual Bride & Groom Expo is gaining more and more momentum, with exhibitors, sponsors and the public, all eager for D-day. This year, the host of sponsors is quite the cream of different service providers in the wedding industry, among them, Marasa Africa. They came on board, not for the first time, to sponsor the Expo, to show Ugandans the endless possibilities and great travel offers.
“Marasa Africa, being the leading Safari Lodge Group in Uganda, is keen to further develop domestic tourism within Uganda. We value all travel from all our guests and would like to highlight the endless possibilities when it comes to wedding venues at our lodges. In addition, having various honeymoon packages across the lodges gives couples the additional alternatives for selecting honeymoon spots,” says Mako Maradzika, the head of sales and marketing of Marasa Africa.
“We will be giving tips and advice on planning weddings from 10 guests to 250 at the lodge. We detail our experience in dealing with weddings and will give advice on best booking detail. We will certainly have a few giveaways and visitors should come through for a visit,” Maradzika adds.
The Bride & Groom expo, slated to run from June 22 to 24, is visited by thousands of people, seeking to find the best wedding deals and packages. It is the only event of its kind in Uganda.
“The Expo has, for long, been the event of the year when it comes to weddings in Uganda. It is a one stop solution for all potential brides and grooms to come by and run through and get ideas on what they would like for their special day,” says Maradzika adds.“Our experience has been a very beneficial and positive one which has cultivated a strong relationship. Firstly, the Vision Group representatives are always dedicated and focused in comprehending our high-end offering.”
Marasa Africa properties offer unique unforgettable experiences making them the most popular honeymoon and wedding destinations in East Africa. The teams’ genuine efforts are not only exhibited for the Expo, but extend to post-Expo activities.
“The Expo remains an ideal location for us to tap into the growth potentials in the East African wedding market,” Maradzika says.
