Meetings and events suppliers from around the world will return to London this summer to attend The Meetings Show, the UK’s leading platform for the global meetings and events community.
Hundreds of destinations, venues, hotels and other suppliers – both UK and international - are gearing up to meet with buyers at the 10th edition of The Meetings Show, taking place at London ExCeL on 29 and 30 June.
Reflecting the global meetings and events industry’s desire to get back to business following the pandemic, this year’s landmark show will welcome the return of international destinations such as Visit Denmark, The Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau and Korea MICE Bureau alongside newcomers such as Istanbul Convention & Visitors Bureau and Zimbabwe National Conventions Bureau.
The show will again be supported by convention bureaux from all four corners of the UK, with newcomers Meet Bristol and Bath and Destination Harrogate joining long-time supporters London Convention Bureau and Visit Leeds, as well as regional bodies VisitBritain, Visit Belfast, Visit Scotland and Visit Wales.
The world’s most prestigious meetings and events venues and hotel groups will also be at The Meetings Show to share updates with buyers. Venues of Excellence, Hilton, Melia Hotels & Resorts, IHG, Barcelo, Legacy Hotels and Great Hotels of the World, are among those waiting to show buyers how they can exceed their expectations for their next event.
The line-up will be completed by technology suppliers such as Shocklogic and Cvent and the industry’s top associations will also be in attendance.
Up and coming technology companies also have the opportunity to apply for TMS Introducing – a new, cost-effective way to target buyers looking for the most diverse and innovative business meetings and event tech. Successful applicants will then be entered into a competition, which will be voted for onsite by attendees, to receive a free stand at the 2023 show.
The Meetings Show event director Jack Marczewski said: “Space is filling fast in the exhibition hall at London ExCeL and we are thrilled to see the return of our international exhibitors as well as the addition of newcomers from both the UK and further afield. We look forward to welcoming them, as well as our valued long-time supporters, through the show doors in June where they will be able to facilitate valuable meetings that will rebuild the global meetings and events industry.”
