The Meetings Show started yesterday and was completely virtual for the first time. During the first day hundreds of rewarding meetings were held, hours of stimulating education sessions took place and dozens of valuable connections were made.
Highlights from the day included sessions on creativity, designing interactive and engaging online meetings, understanding virtual attendees, building resilience, PR, measuring ROI and facilitating valuable business opportunities.
The popular education sessions, which have been viewed over 2,600 times so far by visitors from across the globe, have sparked interesting debate and seen many engage as well as ask thought-provoking questions to the show’s great line up of speakers.
More than 250 exhibitors have committed to The Meetings Show and more than 1,600 pre-qualified buyers have registered to attend across the three days.
Jack Marczewski, The Meetings Show’s Event Director, said: “We’ve been delighted with how the first day of the event has been received. Before we even went live this morning, an impressive 60% of pre-registered attendees had already logged in to our virtual platform to book sessions and arrange meetings, and throughout the first day we can see hundreds of valuable connections and networking meetings have already taken place across our virtual platform. And, there’s so much more to take place over the next two days.”
As well as education sessions, which run throughout the day and also cover technology, diversity, legacy and gamification, there are chances to hold valuable meetings with the show’s 250 exhibitors, who include destinations, venues, hotels and technology suppliers.
Visitors can also watch insightful interviews with industry leaders, gain an insight into top destinations, hear from selected speakers and find out the views from Tomorrow’s Talent by tuning into TMS TV, which runs through the duration of the show.
