Road-to-change-imageExciting NEW changes in the ‘Hitched’ road ahead in 2016

This year ‘ Hitched’ celebrated it’s 5th anniversary as Rotorua’s largest annual wedding event. Time has literally flown by since the show’s inception in 2011 under the name Rotorua Wedding & Special Events Show. Along the way of our journey, we’ve had our share of challenges, re-branded the show as ‘Hitched’ [as the earlier name was a wee bit of a mouthful to say the least], enjoyed the incredible support of many wonderful people, and made some “make or break” decisions which have ensured our continuing position at the forefront as an award-winning show.

As we look toward the future, we’re excited to announce some new changes that will add to our continued success ::

1. We’re moving the date of our show to April 10th 2016

2. We’re introducing a ‘Hitched’ BLOG to our website to keep everyone ‘in the loop’ as to latest developments

3. AND… we’ve got something in the pipeline that we’ll reveal in a later blog update that will really take ‘Hitched’ to a whole new level! WATCH THIS SPACE.

NEW ‘HITCHED’ SHOW DATE – Sunday, April 10th 2016

For the last 3 years ‘Hitched’ has showcased alongside two other major calendar events in the city over Queen’s Birthday Weekend, namely The Blues Festival and Multisport Winterfest. To have these two big events alongside our own has certainly boosted numbers of out of Town visitors, and offered further variety to Queens Birthday Weekend activity in Rotorua.

The incredible success since our recently introducing our latest venture, Wedding Industry Awards {NZ}, to the region has grown faster than even we’d anticipated, and as such, we’ve had to make an executive decision to shift ‘Hitched’ to an earlier date in the year to accommodate for the future growth of Weddng Industry Awards {NZ}, while also ensuring the ongoing sustainability and development of ‘Hitched’.

The new date {Sunday, April 10th 2016}, effectively places ‘Hitched’ at the very front of wedding shows kicking off in 2016 with national and other regional shows following in our wake. It’s been huge fun hosting ‘Hitched’ over a long weekend but we’re thrilled to bring our annual wedding event forward as this opens new doors of opportunity both for our loyal following of exhibitors and Brides-to-be keen to get a “heads up” on the latest wedding trends.
