With The Meetings Show opening in one week, time is running out to register for this must-attend event. Here are three of the reasons PAs should attend the exhibition.
1 Feed your mind: More than 80 specifically designed education sessions will run over the three days across 10 streams. Award-winning Marion Lowrence of The PA Hub has created another programme dedicated to the educational needs of modern PAs. The PA stream, entitled ‘Are the Board?’ will include sessions such as: “Climbing the Career Path: From PA to EA”, “Running an International Conference”, “The Art of Communication”, “The Power of Awards and What It Means to a PA” and “The Project Mindset: Characteristics of Successful Projects”.
2 Explore. Meet. Discover: Meet the widest selection of exhibitors at a UK show. More than 650 exhibitors from over 60 international suppliers will be there to give you an unrivalled selection of companies to conduct business with. The show includes many new names for 2016, such as Hyatt Hotels, hotel republic, Millennium & Copthorne Hotels, Sheffield Convention Bureau, Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau, Dubrovnik Tourist Board and Searcys, alongside returning companies such as London & Partners, VisitScotland, Tourism Ireland, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts and Dubai Business Events.
3 Grow your network: Gain exclusive access to networking opportunities at some of London’s most iconic venues. The Hosted Buyer Welcome Reception this year is being held at KidZania London on the evening of Monday, 13 June. The fun and unique venue will engage and excite and is likely to be very different to anything you have seen in the past! Meeting Professionals International Foundation and The Meetings Show have teamed up to bring the Foundation’s signature networking and fundraising event, Rendezvous, to London for the first time, providing PAs with an opportunity to network and dance the night away in one of the city’s leading nightclubs. Rendezvous takes place on Tuesday, 14 June at Under the Bridge, Chelsea.
The Meetings Show is the premier event for the UK inbound and outbound meetings industry, taking place 14-16 June 2016 at Olympia London. Registration is live at themeetingsshow.com.
