The organisers of Africa’s foremost wedding exposition have announced the postponement of the event originally slated to hold June 28-29, at the Monarch Event Centre, Lagos.
In a press statement released signed by Dayo Falade, Executive Convener of the Africa Wedding Expo 2022, it regretted the postponement of the much anticipated event. According to the statement it pleaded with prospective sponsors, vendors, exhibitors, attendees, volunteers and wedding event enthusiasts, for their understanding on the unfortunate postponement.
It went on to explain that the organisers lost a strategic member in charge of its affairs to the cold hands of death in Kenya. Adding that it would be insensitive to go hold ahead with the event as scheduled.
The statement further reassured prospective exhibitors and vendors who have registered and paid for participation at the event not to fret. That their places at the event are assured.
“We made this difficult decision due to a tragic event that happened on June 23rd which we believe if we allow the event go on, it will seem insensitive to the family involved. This is very much heavy on us as a whole lot has been invested time, energy and resources into making sure AFRICA WEDDING EXPO 2022 happen in grand style but unfortunately we have to postpone till later date.
“We are sincerely sorry for the inconveniences this very change will cause to everyone who is looking forward to the event. This is a phase that’s beyond our control.
It added reassuringly, “All payment made from various quarters including booths reservation by vendors, partners and exhibitors would remain valid for the event, which we have rescheduled to hold October 25-26, 2022.
“We appreciate your level of understanding that we do not have control over nature and your willingness to go though this phase with us, we need your support by being patient with us and helping to calm any negative reactions within your area of influence,” it added conclusively.
