I’m interviewing Joel Ariaman this week for my new podcast. He’s the epitome of an entrepreneur within the wedding and events industry… and that’s what my podcast’s all about!
Joel runs Pure Events and he produces wedding shows in Brighton and surrounding areas. Not only does he have a calendar of events throughout the year but he also runs a Prosecco and Pimms bike, and catering business Halloumilicious (which looks sooooo tasty!).. I hear he’s soon to be hiring out a land venue for weddings too. Watch this space!
He’s gearing up for a BIG fair at the Amex Stadium on Sunday 9th September. The event is open from 10.30-3.00pm and tickets are available to book now via Eventbrite.
You can expect 75 exhibitors, a bridal catwalk show, live music, speakers, workshops, competitions and a free goodie bag on arrival (including a copy of our brand new issue which is launching that very day!)
I’d say their events are a good mix of traditional and alternative suppliers and they’re well attended thanks to marketing with Juice FM etc.
After the big event at the Amex stadium they’re going straight into another fair the weekend after. They’ll be at the stunning Stanmer house on Sunday 16th September (free entry). They’re going to be busy bees because on 14th Oct they’re at The Queens Hotel in Brighton and on 11th November they’ve got a show at The Hilton Metropole (also Brighton). Their 2019 events are on their website.
You can get tea/coffee/lunch at the venue so why not make a day of it? There’s sure to be plenty to keep you busy.
Date: Sunday 9th September 2018
