Behind The Scenes

About Our Host and MC

Dave Long is President and Director of Operations at Festive Events, Inc. , and has been the official emcee of The Original Wedding Expos for the past five years. Festive Events provides all of the sound and lighting for our expos (with the exception of the Twin River venue), and also works closely with our team to help select music for our fashion show sets. They also have written and produced several of our radio commercials.

Dave and his team of entertainers always bring their energy & creativity to all of our wedding expos, and it helps to create a level of excitement for our exhibitors as well as the brides and grooms who attend. Speak with Dave or any member of his team and you'll immediately get the idea that this is a team of professionals who knows what they are doing. Be sure to check out their booth at the expo and watch how it becomes an integral part of our fashion show.
