MICE Exhibitions

If the MICE sector were to be judged on its specialist exhibitions, then it would be declared a boom industry. No country now feels complete without its specialist incentives, meetings and exhibitions fair. And most of the local shows that are already established have visions of growing into truly international events.
But, in the light of the current cutbacks in the global travel business, exhibitors are being very careful about their budgets – and exhibition visitors are also controlling the amount of time they spend away from their desks.
However, the argument is very strong in favour of exhibitions. Destinations and their hotels, airlines and conference centres need to hold on to their existing customers and to pitch to new ones. Event organisers have to keep up-to-date on what is on offer, because change is at the very heart of this sector of business.
It is very cost-effective for scores, hundreds and even thousands of suppliers to be able to come together with large numbers of buyers under one roof in the space of two or three days.
And the exhibition organisers are very aware that Return on Investment – in terms of time as well as money – is vital to their exhibitors and their visitors.
Hosted Buyer schemes, providing free transport and accommodation for selected buyers, combined with computerised matching of seller to buyer are now more important than ever and are seen to be the way to success for the shows.
