The Meetings Show is the premier event for the inbound and outbound meetings and event industry in the UK, taking place on 27-28 June 2018 at Olympia London.

Since its launch in 2012, The Meetings Show has become a must-attend exhibition for event, meeting, conference and incentive planners from the UK and Europe. Following extensive research and feedback from our audience, The Meetings Show is moving to a new streamlined, two-day format for 2018.

Just as many connections, less time out the office.

We see over 700 of the finest destinations, hotels, venues, DMCs and technology providers from the UK and around the world, all looking to meet and interact with premium MICE buyers under a single roof. With 91% of hosted buyers attending the show to meet new suppliers, our exhibitors are perfectly positioned to do business.

Our hosted buyer programme is tailored to individuals who organise meetings, events, conferences or incentives. By joining the programme, buyers are given access to a premium attendance option with a whole host of benefits including exclusive education and networking opportunities to ensure they can make the most out of their time at the show. We also welcome over 1,000 visitor buyers to the show, 95% from the UK, who are able to take advantage of the hundreds of meeting, networking and education opportunities at their fingertips. 

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.

Whether you are a buyer or supplier in meetings and events, make sure you clear your diary for June 27-28 and don’t miss out on The Meetings Show 2018.
