An exhibition for newlyweds "In the center of wedding discounts" was held in St. Petersburg
22 March 2021
The event took place on March 21 at the PetroCongress with the participation of the St. Petersburg City Tourist Information Bureau.
The Tourist Information Bureau of St. Petersburg showed the visitors of the exhibition the guide "Wedding Petersburg". Available in print and electronic versions, the guide tells about St. Petersburg from its romantic side.
In addition to "Wedding Petersburg", visitors of the exhibition received free booklets "Romantic St. Petersburg", city maps and souvenirs. Also, the Tourist Information Bureau held a drawing among the guests of the event, at which a couple of future newlyweds won gifts with the symbols of the city on the Neva: thermo mugs, diaries, pens, calendars and a set of postcards.
At the exhibition, the bureau's specialists consulted everyone and answered questions about weddings. Most often, they asked about places for wedding photo shoots, about the main differences between weddings by seasons of the year, about out-of-town registration and photo shoot in the palace, as well as about wedding routes for walks and photos.
The exhibition was attended by over 200 professionals in the wedding industry. It was attended by over a thousand guests.
The official presentation of the city project "Wedding Petersburg" took place in March 2018. Thus, the city tourist portal Visit-Petersburg.ru has prepared a thematic section "Wedding Petersburg" in Russian and English.
In April 2019, an online consultation procedure was launched on the Visit-Petersburg portal for tourists wishing to get married in St. Petersburg: http://www.visit-petersburg.ru/ru/guest/feedback/. This unique opportunity simplifies the process of obtaining information and preparing the necessary documents. As of March 2021, more than 80 requests were received from tourists from Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
