Tourism minister, Nigel Huddleston, will be supporting a return to in-person events as he officially opens the Meetings Show later this month.
After taking place in a virtual format in 2020, the event will be delivered as a hybrid show this year to allow event planners who are unable to attend in-person to interact with the exhibitors.
Andy King, known for his role in planning the infamous Fyre Festival, is to share learnings from his illustrious 30-year career in an exclusive session for the Meetings Show.
Following news of The Meetings Show’s rise in hosted buyer numbers and 10,000 pre-scheduled appointments, the show has closed 27% up on overall (unaudited) visitor numbers*.
Applications are open for Hosted Buyers wishing to benefit from the flexibility and opportunities provided by the premier UK event for the meetings industry.
More than 6,000 pre scheduled appointments were booked by Hosted Buyers attending The Meetings Show UK by the time the show opened last week. In addition the system which allows exhibitors to invite the Hosted Buyers to further appointments was in full swing. These key elements of the show offering are creating a wealth of business opportunities for the exhibitors, which include leading destinations, venues and meetings industry suppliers from around the world.
The Meetings Show UK has announced a focused Association Conference to take place at The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre (QEIICC) on 8th July, 2013.
