This is my second in-person Bridal Expo, and I have participated in two of Bridal Expo's online events - I cannot say enough about Lenora and her team, and how professional, well organized and seamless each event has been! Her personal touches add to the overall success with her frequent check-ins to ensure we have everything we need to have a great experience and successful show!
Her savvy marketing and advertising skills also enhance the overall show's exuberance and attendance numbers! In addition to attracting excited and motivated brides and couples at the event, she also creates a collaborative and supportive community of high-quality vendors.Lenora and her team are always professional and will answer any question or request we may have.
Great job and see you next year!

Blush & Raven has enjoyed being a part of Bridal Expo for 5 years. We are always so well taken care of by Lenora, she is nothing but accommodating to our team! The 2021 Bridal Expo was greatly successful! Our bridal boutique was fortunate to have a booth by the front entrance and the vendors that helped us set it up did an incredible job!
Bridal Expo is such a great way for us to meet new brides and share our brand with fellow vendors in the wedding community! We can't wait for next year!
To sum up working with Lenora ... She truly is a wonderful woman and we have nothing but positive words for her.

Begin a part of the Bridal Expo is like being apart of a family with Lenora as the Matriarch. She genuinely cares about everyone's success.
Lenora shares her wealth of knowledge and is a solid sound of reason, even during uncertain times. She is motivated to be innovative and encourages those around her to be the same. I have learnt a great deal from Lenora and consider her to be a wonderful mentor. I look forward to the support and creativity she will provide the weddnig industry in 2022.

As someone who is new to the wedding scene, and attending the Bridal Expo, I was blown away with how helpful and professional Lenora was. She patiently explained all the different options for me, and even gave advice on how to set up my booth. Since then, I have had many brides reach out, and quite a few reserve my services for their weddings. Attending the Bridal expo was a perfect tool to launch me into the wedding industry.

I would love to express my appreciation for Lenora and her team for organizing the best bridal event in Calgary - Bridal Expo!
Her personal approach to each and single vendor, her willingness to meet our needs and expectations never cease to amaze me! And she is always ready to chat - and give the best advice ever, to support and to encourage. Her events are always THE BEST organized. Thanks for all your hard work!

Lenora is genuinely outstanding on every level and, without question, operates a fabulous show.
Incredible customer service from the get-go; Lenora has taken care of me and my business, allowing me to grow at her show. Even during COVID, safety without question was a top priority; however, what stood out to me was making sure that Lenora constantly did the right thing for businesses attending the show and listening to vendors.
The result for me has been top quality show and prospects attending the show.
I cannot say enough positive things about Lenora; she’s remarkable.

Lenora and the Bridal Expo team were amazing to work with, from that 1st phone call ( it's a long story lol ) until the event. She responded promptly to any questions and shared some valuable business experiences in the industry. Awesome work to the team before Bridal Exop and on that day. Thank you once again. Thank you

Joanna Bisley Designs been attending Bridal Expo for many years and the show has helped tremendously in building the business. I don't have a storefront so Bridal Expo is one of the few ways I directly connect with brides and thier entourages, allowing them to see my product in person. In addition to meeting brides, I am able to network with other wedding industry vendors that recommend me to their brides. Many have become lifelong friends!
Bridal Expo 2021 was beyond my expectations! After a couple of years of no bridal shows.. and Covid.. I was not sure what to expect. The show was fabulous! Not a detail was missed. It was elegant, well organized, very well attended and so much fun.
Most of the brides I meet at the shows are in earlier the planning stage of their wedding and are often a year or more away from purchasing their bridal accessories so as a jewellery designer, the email list of attendees has been crucial to my business. It allows me to remain in contact with brides, letting them know about product, sales, trunk shows etc.

Lenora Kingcott is not only a successful wedding show producer, she is a down to earth, friendly person and breath of fresh air! In todays business community it is hard to find people that are authentic and trustworthy. Lenora has always been a smart person to work with, and follows through from brilliant business ideas to idealized successful shows. She is a hard worker, willing to put in the sweat to get it done.
Lenora is a positive spark of energy and loves to help small businesses in Calgary, we can only hope more people aspire to be like her!

It was a pleasure to work with Lenora at Calgary's Bridal Expo. There was an instant connection with Lenora from the first email/phone call. She is very knowledgeable and definitely has Brides and vendors in mind with everything she does.
This was my first experience with Calgary Bridal Expo and .... WOW!!!! They sure hit it out of the park!!!! It was a well oiled machine that despite COVID and the challenges it posed, was definitely worth the wait!! From vendor set up to take down and all points in between everything flowed smoothly and the team were there to answer any questions that we had.
We have participated in numerous wedding shows / Expos across Canada and I can honestly say, this was one of the best, if not "the best" I've ever been involved with. Everything was done with excellence and professionalism..... AND, we are already booking weddings as a result of the Expo! What business owner doesn't love that immediate ROI!
You could feel the excitement in the air from the time doors opened to close. The Gown sale is a brilliant idea and to see a line up before the doors opened was very exciting AND to see guests still coming and lingering right up until close felt amazing. Most shows that we have done in the past have had a very quiet, slow couple of hrs til close but not Bridal Expo. It was a happening spot ALL day!!
I'm so glad that we made the trip from Ontario to join our Calgary team and to be a part of Calgary Bridal Expo '21 and are looking forward to 2022 and beyond!!!

This was Stephen Cleaner's first time as an exhibitor in a Bridal Expo. Lenora was very responsive and helpful with all of our questions. We were so impressed with how efficiently everything was run and organized at the Expo. We'll definitely be back next year!
