Arabia Weddings was established in Amman – Jordan in September 2011 with a vision to become the leading bilingual wedding planning website in the Arab world. Arabia Weddings addresses a growing need felt by engaged couples across the region while planning for their Big Day, as presently, the process of finding and booking suitable service providers and seeking advice to help them plan their wedding is too stressful; time consuming; frustrating, confusing and costly. Supported by Oasis 500, the MENA region’s premier seed investment accelerator for the ICT and digital media sectors, Arabia Weddings’one stop online platform offers a wide range of benefits, valuable content, innovative planning tools and great money-saving deals that every bride and groom-to-be from the Arab world could benefit from.
Her Majesty Queen Rania on Tuesday made an unscheduled visit to the Amman Tech Tuesday’s expo, which brought together some 120 start-ups in different sectors from Jordan, mainly ICT.
The Queen voiced support for the start-ups taking part in the event, marking the 2nd anniversary of AmmanTT, which was first launched in May 2010.
Held on the 1st Tuesday of each month, the 2-hour meetings gather industry experts, engineers and entrepreneurs to share experiences and ideas with the tech community.
During HM’s tour of exhibitors’ stands at AmmanTT, Arabia Weddings‘ team briefed Queen Rania about the company’s activities that started with the launch of the English version of the website in November 2011, followed by the Arabic version 3 weeks ago.
Queen Rania was impressed by the progress made on the bilingual wedding planning website and interested to hear that the website will soon be launched in the region.
Two years ago, Amman Tech Tuesday’s (AmmanTT) started with a goal to fortify and enrich the technological eco-system in Jordan. As there are many companies and institutions that are doing interesting things in this space, the founders got together to get the industry’s voices, ideas, and businesses out there for further development, sharing of experiences and capacity building.
AmmanTT is held in Amman on the first Tuesday of every month and is a 2-hour event that brings industry experts, local technologists/engineers, entrepreneurs, idea-generators and just about any enthusiast together in a casual setting to meet and learn from each other.
To celebrate its 2nd anniversary, AmmanTT is gathering over 110 tech start-ups from Jordan on May 1st.
Arabia Weddings, which was established in September 2011, will be there to promote its bilingual wedding planning platform that targets Jordan, initially, and the rest of the Arab countries starting later this year. Make sure to visit us if you are in Jordan.
