Hosted buyer registration opens for The Meetings Show


Hosted buyer registration is now open for a show that brings together the events industry.

The Meetings Show 2021 will take place live at London’s ExCeL as well as virtually on 30 September and 1 October.

Hosted buyers attending the live show for either one- or two-days benefit from a dedicated appointment diary to book pre-scheduled meetings with exhibitors, as well as support with travel, accommodation and a whole host of other benefits, such as access to the show’s comprehensive education programme. They will also be invited to a pre-show welcome reception on the evening of 29 September.

Buyers unable to travel to the show due to COVID-19 restrictions will be offered the premium virtual buyer option for the hybrid event.

As with hosted buyers attending the live event, premium virtual buyers will have access to the online diary and appointment booking tools to enable them to pre-schedule meetings with exhibitors of their choice. They can also access exclusive insightful virtual content, streamed education sessions from the live show and instant messaging functions to connect with their peers.

Della Vernette, hosted buyer recruitment manager for The Meetings Show, said: “We’re thrilled to once again be in a position to open registration for our hosted buyer programme. Nothing beats the power of live events where new connections and collaborations are formed, so we’re really excited to be able to welcome and facilitate those all-important face-to-face meetings in a secure environment featuring enhanced cleaning and hygiene protocols alongside other safety measures such as social distancing.”

She added: “We welcome applications from event and meeting planners keen to hold valuable meetings with the show’s diverse list of exhibitors and offering a completely fresh perspective to the event planning process as we help the industry get back to business.”

All hosted buyers at The Meetings Show, including associations, agencies, PCOs, corporates, incentive houses, venue-finding agencies and charities, are pre-qualified to participate based on the number and scale of events organised, budgets held and decision-making power.
