Hong Kong Shark Foundation x Bride Union: Virtual Wedding Fair & Valentine’s Market
15 Jan 2020 — Covid-19 has dashed the wedding industry in Hong Kong. Many events have been postponed or cancelled, and of course including weddings and wedding expo events. Thus, local bridal start up Bride Union is launching the Virtual Wedding Fair and Valentine’s Day Market from 23 Jan to 2 Feb to promote an exposure and promotion channels with reasonable price. The event also aims to support the Hong Kong Shark Foundation to promote shark-free weddings and raise funds. Couples can connect, chat & engage with our selected wedding vendors and gift shop at home safely.
Interactive solutions with shopping function
Besides a static website, Bride Union’s Virtual Wedding Fair and Valentine’s Market provide interactive virtual booth functions for vendors to design their booth. Couples can chat with vendors in real-time through the message & live chat function. Also, the virtual booth can allow vendors to display their portfolio and products with an instant payment gateway. We wish to take virtual wedding fair to the next level.
Live sharing sessions featuring more than 10 wedding experts
Without face-to-face interaction, communication becomes more challenging. There will be more than 10 live sharing sessions in the event. The selected sharing guests include the experts of different areas, like wedding gowns, photography and make up. Participants can know the latest wedding trends and tips through the event.
Promote shark free weddings with Hong Kong Shark Foundation
Every year, over 100 million sharks are caught worldwide for shark fins and other products, with over 50% of the world’s shark fin being traded through Hong Kong alone. Shark fin soup is one of the crucial parts in a traditional wedding menu. Though the young generation think shark fin is no longer important in the menu, it is still common in Hong Kong weddings due to conventional rules or parents’ request. HKSF and Bride Union hope to encourage more couples to stop serving shark fin soup at their wedding to save sharks and actively promote shark conservation.
About Hong Kong Shark Foundation
Hong Kong Shark Foundation (HKSF) is a registered charity dedicated exclusively to shark conservation. We aim to raise awareness about shark conservation, particularly the unsustainable practice of shark finning, and to reduce consumption of shark products in Hong Kong.
