Meetings Show UK. 27 new exhibitors have signed up to The Meetings Show UK in the last week as destinations, venues and meetings industry suppliers recognise the value and importance of the new show, which takes place from 9-11 July, 2013 at Olympia, London.
Following the opening of visitor and hosted buyer registration, organisations such as Hilton Worldwide, IHG/InterContinental Hotels Group, Business Events Canada, Japan National Tourism Organisation and Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority have signed up to exhibit at The Meetings Show UK.
A number of exhibitors – such as Tourism Ireland, VisitScotland and Austrian National Tourist Office – have increased their original stand space to allow for additional destination partners. And London & Partners and Tourism Ireland have partnered with The Meetings Show UK to create further branded areas to accommodate additional partners who have not been able to secure space on their national pavilions.
The Meetings Show UK, Event Director Steve Knight: “The response to our decision to launch The Meetings Show UK has been overwhelming. Exhibitors and visitors are telling us time and again that a hosted buyer led show of this quality is needed in the UK and we are delighted to be fulfilling that need. This ever expanding list of high quality exhibitors continues to provide motivation for buyers to attend the show in July – a fact that is reflected in the high number of registrations already completed.”
The Meetings Show UK is expected to attract 4,000 meeting professionals including 1,500 hosted buyers from across the UK and Europe.
