Fall 2016 Season Recap

As we wrap up our last show of 2016, we want to say Thank You to the exhibitors, engaged couples and other attendees for an awesome year!

Here’s what we’ve heard from some of you after our most recent shows:

  • “I Do” Engravables has exhibited at many bridal shows nationwide as well as in London. We collect as many “signatures” on our “guest books” in 3 hours at the Cobb Galleria show as we collect during an entire day at 2 of the nation’s largest shows. This show provides us better, consistent traffic and results at a much lower cost per lead. The traffic flows from start of the show to the end of the day, providing a steady flow of brides to our booth. Other shows have multiple fashion shows which disrupt the traffic flow and provide waves of attendees, making it harder to engage brides. Additionally, the Elite Bridal Show team is very personable and nice to work with. They recognize exhibitors on sight and work with us to accommodate even the most mundane of requests. Working with them is always a pleasure. The experience has always been very personable and warm, as opposed to some other shows where we are just one of many exhibitors. ~Carrie, “I Do” Engravables
  • We do not usually book brides at the show or even the week after, but I personally have 3 brides booked. Great show! [5 days after the show] ~Lou, Spectrum Entertainment
  • The Georgia Bridal Show was amazing!! My Maid of Honor and I had so much fun! I received so much information and ideas…I was even able to book a few appointments. I found travel agencies and sampled amazing food/cakes! Everyone was so professional and all around helpful! I can’t wait to go back so we can book more appointments! ~Bride
