Following significant investment, The Meetings Show’s Hosted Buyer Programme has evolved to ensure Hosted Buyers have a more productive time at the show and are able to appreciate the wide variety of networking and business growth opportunities available throughout the week.
“The Meetings Show’s Hosted Buyers can benefit from accommodation spanning the traditional one night, or two – a new option for 2014 that allows them to arrive the evening before to rest and prepare for their meetings. They can be fully hosted, which includes all travel and accommodation or opt for semi-hosted and just receive the onsite benefits – an ideal choice for local attendees.” continues Knight. “Above all else, we have made it our goal to respond to the needs of our Hosted Buyers and this flexible, varied programme is the perfect solution.”
Fully Hosted Buyers benefit from complimentary travel and accommodation; transportation to Olympia from host hotels and networking venues; as well as a choice of Hosted Buyer lounges complete with refreshments.
Hosted Buyers can schedule meetings with organisations relevant to their business. The Meetings Show is supported by the UK's widest variety of meetings focused exhibitors including many new names for 2014 such as: Abu Dhabi, Accor Hotels, Belfast, Brill AV, Brunel University, Brussels, Carlson Rezidor, Centium Software, C Hotels, Chicago, Dolce Hotels, Dubai, Madrid, Norway, Sana Hotels, Sandals Hotels and Beaches Resorts, Turkey, The Balearic Islands, The Westminster Collection, Washington DC, Whittlebury Hall, Wyboston Lakes and Zagreb.
