Global Wedding Planners Showcase Their Best Table Designs for Türkiye’s 100th Anniversary 


Nine renowned event and wedding planners will be bringing their best design skills to the Table Design Exhibition — Celebrate Art & Creativity, which will be held at the Hilton Istanbul Bosphorus Hotel in Istanbul, Türkiye between October 31 and November 2, 2023. 

The Table Design Exhibition is the first of its kind. The showcase was created to spotlight the tablescaping skills of the world’s finest event designers. 

The Theme: Türkiye’s 100th Anniversary 

This is the 2nd edition of the exhibition, and overlaps with Türkiye’s 100th anniversary on October 29. In honor of this momentous milestone, the designers will be putting together Türkiye-themed table designs that entwine the country’s rich aesthetics and culture with each of their distinct signature styles. 

As one of the most crucial aspects of event design, tablescaping is an art that engages tasteful and innovative floral arrangements, crockery, candles, textiles, and more to create an immersive experience for dinner parties and the like. A spectacular tablescape is vital for weddings, as the dining setup can make or break the wedding theme, and completely transform a venue. 

That said, couples should prepare to feast their eyes on the upcoming exhibition—inspiration will surely abound!
