Ahead of The Meetings Show, which will run virtually this year from 19-21 October 2020, more than 6,000 messages have already been exchanged and hundreds of meetings booked via the Swapcard platform.
Hundreds of exhibitors – from UK and international destinations, to destination management companies, event venues, hotels and technology suppliers – will be available to connect in one-to-one online meetings with buyers throughout the duration of the event. International destinations exhibiting include Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority, Malta Tourism Authority and Tourism Ireland while VisitScotland, VisitWales, Liverpool and Leicester are among the UK destinations who will be present.
Destinations will brief buyers of recent developments in their regions and discuss how they and their venues and experiences can meet their future meetings, events and incentives needs. Representatives from the world’s leading conference and event venues and hotel groups will also be on hand to talk to buyers.
In line with growing interest in hybrid and virtual events and demand for technology to support safe and successful events, there will be a strong presence from technology suppliers at this year’s show. Online event management software companies Cvent, Shocklogic and EventMobi will be showcasing their products and services along with many others.
According to the organisers, the Meetings Show is UK’s leading exhibition for event, meeting and conference professionals. The show includes an exhibition, educational sessions and networking and attracts buyers from the corporate, association, agency and public sectors. The show features destinations from over 50 countries.
