We are working with Ocean Media on National Wedding Shows. They are the UK’s biggest consumer wedding shows and have been running for the past 25 years.

NWS's homepage
National Wedding Shows has been running for the past 25 years are and the biggest wedding shows in United Kingdom.

Problem

National Wedding Show (NWS) required an end to end solution to maintain their website and integrate it with a system that allows Exhibitors to login and provide their information themselves.

Ocean Media Staff would then assign proper Exhibitors to selected show and the information should show accordingly on the website.

Exhibitor portal shows
Exhibitor Portal makes it easy to browse through number of events to modify the information and assign Exhibitors.

Solution

We have created a stunning Wordpress website that handles all of the information with customisable contact forms for end users so they can apply as Exhibitors or take part in exciting competitions.

We have created a bespoke system called Exhibitor Portal which allows users to create an account directly and provide all the information about their business, so it shows accordingly on the NWS page.

Ocean Media Team can easily browse through a portfolio of exhibitors and assign them to the shows where they will appear on the biggest wedding shows in the United Kingdom.

The Portal was created in PHP Symfony and connects to Wordpress via API.

Currently we are maintaining both the website and system. They encounter heavy traffic, since NWS is backed by a one million pound marketing campaign. The shows are the ultimate wedding planning and shopping experience

“Codeminded were the developers for relaunching one of our leading product sites, The National Wedding Show. They are now our direct key developers and also the go-to for quick changes.

Some highlights that stood out to me were their exceptional project management from their key contact Rafal. Everything executed by Codemminded is always a smooth process. They build a portal for our exhibitors to access and updated their business profiles that appear on our direct website, this portal has been received well by our exhibitors and internal team.

If you have the opportunity to work with them in the future then I have no doubt you will have the same outlook as us.”
