Welcome to the January issue
Welcome to our first monthly newsletter for 2017! It's now only six months until we open the doors for the fifth edition of The Meetings Show and to mark the occasion, we have opened applications to our hosted buyer programme.
As always, the programme offers a number of opportunities and flexible options giving qualified buyers a platform that allows them to conduct business, network and learn in a format designed to fit around their requirements and schedule. Excitingly, we saw a 10% increase in UK hosted buyers in 2016 and we’re once again expecting growth in 2017.
We’re also delighted to announce that The Future of Meetings will return to the show. It was a great success at last year's show and we're thrilled to see it back for 2017.
We'll also be taking a look at upcoming industry trends for 2017, whilst Conference Leeds addresses how to engage and energise delegates, and as always, we bring you the latest news from the meetings industry as well as from the show’s partners.
