Munaluchi Bride Magazine — a leading multicultural wedding publication in the United States — is bringing its annual retreat to the island later this year.
The Coterie Retreat will be a three-day conference of more than 100 wedding and event professionals, hosted at the Hamilton Princess Hotel & Beach Club in December 2018.
“People are excited. They’re ready to pack their bags and get here,” said Munaluchi Bride Magazine Sales and Marketing Director Nicole McKenzie.
“I can tell you the buzz is extremely high. We just ended our retreat in December that was in South Africa and everyone was trying to figure out where we would be going next.
“How will we top South Africa? We made the announcement we were coming to Bermuda and we have received positive responses from day one.”
Munaluchi Bride Magazine CEO/Editor-in-Chief Jacqueline Nwobu said, “The purpose of the conference is not only to educate, but to expose Bermuda to the destination wedding industry.
“We really want our planners to connect with the locals here in Bermuda. We want to be able to put Bermuda on the map in terms of romance travel.”
“We are delighted that Hamilton Princess & Beach Club has been chosen as the host hotel,” said Hamilton Princess General Manager Tim Morrison.
“This is an exciting networking event for the wedding and event professionals from around the globe and is an important profile-raising opportunity for Bermuda.
“We are confident that the planners will fall in love with the island once they are here.”
