Hosted buyer registration now open for The Meetings Show

You are: home > hosted buyer registration now open for the meetings show


Hosted buyer registration is now open for the premier event for the UK inbound and outbound meetings industry.

The Meetings Show, taking place on Wednesday 26 and Thursday 27 June at Olympia London, offers a tailored buyer-led programme designed for buyers to maximise their time out of the office and give a new perspective to their event planning process.

Hosted buyers attending the show for one, two or three days (including attendance of the Pre-Show Conference on Tuesday 25 June) benefit from a dedicated appointment diary to book pre-scheduled meetings with exhibitors, as well as support with travel, accommodation and a whole host of other benefits.

Those attending on the three-day programme can enjoy exclusive education at the Pre-Show Conference – a sell-out in 2018 – with dedicated streams for association, corporate and agency buyers, as well as the Hosted Buyer Welcome Reception, which last year attracted more than 400 attendees.

All hosted buyers at The Meetings Show, including associations, agencies, PCOs, corporates, incentive houses, venue-finding agencies and charities, are pre-qualified to participate based on the number and scale of events organised, budgets held and decision-making power.

Rachel Lawty, global account manager at HelmsBriscoe and hosted buyer at The Meetings Show 2018, said: “The Meetings Show is a great educational event for meeting suppliers, networking with colleagues and event organisers. I can highly recommend the Pre-Show Conference, the speakers were fabulous and highly motivational.”

HBAA is also offering a unique Red Carpet Experience for agency members.  Arrive late morning  on 25th June for a one hour HBAA meeting with your agency peers and then join the main hosted buyer delegation for lunch followed by the Pre-Show Conference, and the official Welcome Reception. Stay overnight and attend the opening day of the Show as a hosted buyer, with the option to stay on for the second day.  Further info and Red Carpet Registration can be found here
