The Meetings Show 2023: Hosted buyer registration is open
Senior meeting and event planners can now register for the hosted buyer programme for The Meetings Show as the event returns to ExCeL London on 28 and 29 June 2023.
The registration for the hosted buyer programme at The Meetings Show is now open. Those who want to attend the event for either one or two-days get access to a dedicated appointments diary to book pre-scheduled meetings with exhibitors and are supported with travel, accommodation and a host of other benefits.
Those opting to engage in the three-day programme will also be invited to attend a bespoke educational experience, providing targeted content for event planners on Tuesday 27 June, before being welcomed with an exclusive evening reception at an exciting new location in London. Hosted buyers will have the opportunity to discover a venue in the heart of the city, featuring stunning views of London's iconic skyline. The venue will be announced soon.
There are also opportunities to take part in post-show fam trips to destinations around the UK and Europe, including Destination Coventry, Bristol & Bath, Q Hotels and Malta.
Registration for the programme opens as The Meetings Show launches #takethetime, a campaign encouraging time-strapped event professionals who are dealing with multiple challenges, to attend the show.
By attending the show, event professionals will have the chance to discover cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternatives, reassess budgets, find ideal suppliers, stay ahead of current trends, and streamline the event planning process, all in just a matter of days.
Jack Marczewski, portfolio event director of The Meetings Show, TEAMS Europe and Business Travel Show Europe, said: “We are excited to be opening registration for this year’s hosted buyer programme, which not only facilitates those all-important face-to-face connections between our buyer and supplier communities, but also provides a wealth of opportunities to support buyers and gives them access to exclusive events.
“We welcome applications from both domestic and European event planners keen to hold valuable meetings with the show’s diverse list of exhibitors. We don’t make appointment matches, so it’s entirely down to the buyer who they want to meet with, and with the three attendance options it provides more flexibility for those tight on time.”
