3 NEW THINGS FOR US... AND YOU!
We have been running the Lovesick Expo for 7 years now -- each better than the previous. (Go on, and see for yourself.) We’ve met thousands of rad couples and vendors from coast to coast, all trying to do things a little differently than the wedding mainstream. Lovesick is even proud to have served as the inspiration for smaller pop-up events all over the country.
But after 5 years of traveling for 2 months out of the year with the expo, we’ve gotten, well... homesick. So we are making some changes to our event calendar, as well as introducing something really exciting for engaged couples -- AND EVERYONE ELSE -- in the Philadelphia region!
#1: LOVESICK PHILLY...
WINTER & SUMMER 2017!
Since 85% of our surveyed vendors said they’d love to participate in more than one show each year, we are now making Lovesick Philly a biannual event with our first show on January 15, 2017 and an additional summer expo on August 13, 2017, both at World Café Live. Plus, vendors will have the opportunity to sign up to be a part of both shows at a discounted rate! We’ve had a blast touring the country at so many unique spaces, but there was never any show like home. Check out our new site, LovesickPhilly.com, which will also serve as a 24/7/365 resource to identify our favorite, trusted, creative vendor friends in the city. Applications will become available on August 1, 2016. So get ready!
While yes, this means that the expo won’t be traveling to other cities in 2017, we’re really excited to be firmly replanting our roots where it all began.
And speaking of planting roots...
That’s right! We are proud to introduce here today -- Homesick! This is our alternative to the traditional home and lifestyle show with a Lovesick spin! If your rad adult life needs to be a little radder... if you need more new and local things in your life... if you want to meet the city's best artists and designers... or if you want to learn about professional services, workshops, or volunteer opportunities in Philadelphia, this is the event for you. All of you. This is especially near and dear to our hearts, because we have an opportunity to once again reunite with the thousands of couples we’ve met through the wedding process. Stay tuned for more, and check out a preview at HomesickPhilly.com.
And speaking of businesses...
#3: CORPORATE EVENTS
& COMMERCIAL FILMS
We’re also using this opportunity to launch another arm of our business -- Lovesick Productions -- specializing in full-service corporate event curation and commercial film/media production! This is something we have quietly done on the side for years, with clients ranging from the M. Night Shyamalan Foundation, University of Pennsylvania, Calico Corners, Lockhaven University, among other nonprofits and tradeshows. As interest is growing for bigger and larger projects and events, we thought it was time to make it official. Our experience putting together the largest alternative wedding show in the country, coupled with DJing, filmmaking, photography, and helping to coordinate thousands of events since our inception gives us a unique perspective and the opportunity to make events in the corporate world a little more (okay, a lot more) awesome. It’s a well-oiled team that we could not be more proud of, and we look forward to creating even more events beyond the wedding world.
So, please celebrate with us as Lovesick comes home! More wedding shows. New events. New offerings. And we have a feeling that this is just the beginning of even more good things to come.
With so much gratitude,
Tom & Jon
