How COVID-19 has shifted SA’s wedding industry and the couples involved

The Wedding Expo and Old Mutual Partnership

Old Mutual is proud to announce a match made in heaven partnership with The Wedding Expo. With a proven track record as South Africa’s most trusted and well-loved wedding exhibition running since 2002, The Wedding Expo welcomes Old Mutual onboard as the perfect partner to emphasise the importance of financially preparing for life.

TWE Logos FINAL-09

The Wedding Expo, in partnership with Old Mutual, have decided to take every necessary precaution in consideration of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic. These actions are taken in line with the safety guidelines and regulations issued by the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs.

Therefore, with considerable forethought of the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic and the safety concerns surround mass gatherings, TWE has taken the difficult decision to cancel the upcoming expo at Sandton Convention Centre scheduled for 8 - 9 August 2020.

The sole purpose of The Wedding Expo is to showcase Africa’s finest wedding suppliers to the many soon-to-be married couples. We are passionate about local business, and as a result we are ethically obliged to protect and preserve the health and well-being of not only our brides and grooms but also all of the industry power houses who exhibit with us.

On behalf of the TWE organising committee, we want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during these unprecedented times as we work diligently to ensure the smooth running of TWE for the future. To everyone at the forefront of this evolving pandemic, we stand in solidarity with you, and humbly thank you for your service.
