Applications for The Meetings Show hosted buyer programme are now open.

And show organisers have promised that 2017 will once again deliver a programme designed to allow qualified buyers to conduct business, network and learn in a format designed to fit around their personal schedule.

“With nearly 10 per cent of our exhibitors new for 2017, our well established offering is the ideal opportunity for meetings professionals to gain inspiration and ideas,” said Steve Knight, event director of The Meetings Show.  “Whether you are a buyer from the corporate, agency, association, government or not-for-profit sectors, our wide range of suppliers and partners, along with a focused education programme makes The Meetings Show a must-attend event.”

The 2016 edition saw UK hosted buyer numbers increase by 11 per cent. This year’s show will take place on 13-15 June at Olympia London and is now in its fifth edition. Buyers wishing to be part of the programme should visit the website to check qualification criteria before completing their application.

Individuals choosing fully hosted buyer status benefit from two days at the show, complimentary travel and accommodation for up to two nights. Buyers based in Greater London or the South East, as well as those needing to comply with travel policies, can participate in the semi-hosted buyer option, which includes just four pre-scheduled appointments per day. 

All hosted buyers have access to the online diary to organise their time at the show in advance, access to hosted buyer lounges with complimentary refreshments, invitations to exclusive networking functions and the opportunity to apply for post event tours.
