A core element of The Meetings Show is its education programme, free for all attendees and featuring a variety of session formats across themes including marketing & branding, leadership & management, corporate, agency, association and more. In 2017 the show featured over 70 hours of free content from industry expert speakers to keep attendees up to date with the latest trends rocking the industry, help them overcome current challenges, as well as exploring what the future might hold.
