Visitor registration has now opened for The Meetings Show 2016, which takes place from 14-16 June at London’s Olympia.
Building on the success of the last three years, visitors to the show will benefit from an entirely new experience when they arrive at its new home – Olympia Grand.
With a growing exhibitor list, 30% bigger year on year than 2015, visitors will be able to meet more than 600 exhibiting companies, many of which are using The Meetings Show as their exclusive face-to-face marketing activity in the UK. Exhibitors making up the UK’s largest gathering of meetings industry professionals include major domestic and international destinations, venues, hotel groups, DMCs, trade associations and suppliers.
Once again the education programme will address issues faced by agencies, corporates, associations, PCOs, AMCs, PAs and key sectors such as healthcare and technology. In addition to the dedicated Association Meetings Conference on 13 June, education across the three days of the show will include keynote sessions, seminars, destination showcases and Meet the Expert round tables.
Exhibitor highlights include Dubai Convention & Events Bureau, Croatia National Tourist Board, London & Partners, VisitScotland, Hilton Worldwide, Kempinski Hotels, Hyatt Hotels and hotel republic.
The Meetings Show’s Event Director Steve Knight says: “Our show is the perfect place for meetings professionals to gather, network, learn and conduct business. We have the widest range of meeting industry-focused exhibitors, including many that simply cannot be seen elsewhere in the UK. For buyers looking to meet both domestic and international exhibitors it is by far the most effective way to establish contacts and develop new business.”
Applications for The Meetings Show’s hosted buyer programme opened in January and are available to those buyers looking for a host of flexible benefits to enhance their on-site experience. A semi-hosted option is also available for London and South East buyers looking to minimise time out of the office.
