The Meetings Show is the premier international event for the UK inbound and outbound meetings and events industry and takes place annually in London. The 2017 show will be held at Olympia Grand Hall on 13-15 June.  

Now in its fifth edition, the three-day show provides attendees with the chance to explore new opportunities, network at a vibrant selection of events and learn and develop with our free education content. The 2016 show saw attendees from 85 countries come together in the heart of London with over 700 exhibitors on hand to meet with over 3000 visitors for three days of focussed business opportunities.  

The education programme spans the three days of the show with over 80 sessions split by subject into 10 dedicated streams. The speakers are industry leaders and experts. Created and timed to work in harmony with the thousands of meetings taking place between buyers and suppliers throughout the show, the education programme is carefully designed to meet the needs of all attendees. Additional ‘Meet the Experts’ sessions are also included to give attendees exclusive access to speakers and to take discussions further.  

Additionally, the show centres on a world-class hosted buyer programme that makes it easy for buyers to pre-schedule appointments in their online diaries with exhibitors from the UK and around the world, whilst travel and accommodation requirements are taken care of behind the scenes.
