The Meetings Show UK, which is to be held at London’s Olympia from 9th to 11th July, will bring together the heart of the international meetings community. It will present the first and largest fully hosted buyer led programme in the UK with top buyers from the MICE industry expected to attend from around the world. The major buyer event, which takes place following The Meetings Show UK’s Association Day marks the start of the show’s highly anticipated networking programme for hundreds of influential buyers.
Iconic London venue Leadenhall Market, the ancient centre of Roman Londinium, will be the location for a street party-themed networking reception. The London, Up Your Street event will showcase London’s unparalleled expertise at hosting high profile events and will see hundreds of hosted buyers and industry professionals enjoying a festival atmosphere on London’s streets.
Taking prime position on the central aisle at The Meetings Show UK, the London stand will feature almost a dozen of the city’s top venues including Radisson Blu Edwardian, London; Arsenal Football Club; The Mermaid and Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts.
Steve Knight, Event Director at The Meetings Show UK, said: “The London, Up Your Street event marks the start of The Meetings Show UK’s networking programme, and our partnership with London & Partners has been pivotal in bringing it to life. Leadenhall Market is a superb venue which will provide a fantastic backdrop to this high profile evening, which will bring together hosted buyers already in attendance at the Association Day as well as those preparing to attend the main show when it opens on 9th July. It is a fantastic start to the networking and a wonderful welcome to our guests in London.”
