Final preparations are in full swing for The Meetings Show 2024 which kicks off at ExCeL London on 19 June.

Taking place over two days (19-20 June) The Meetings Show features a packed programme with a stellar line up of meeting and event suppliers from across the globe, a thought-provoking education programme, and countless networking opportunities making it the must-attend event for #eventprofs this summer.

Here are a few highlights of this year’s show:

Exceptional exhibitors

With over 650 exhibitors from across the globe, buyers can discover hotels, destinations, destination management companies, venues, conference centres, technology suppliers, and more.

This year’s impressive list includes Conference Leeds & Hull, Better Venues, Radisson Hotel Group, Scenic / Emerald Cruises, Premier UK Events and Butlin’s to name just a few. A strong international presence includes many major European cities, key players from Asia
such as Japan NTO, Penang, Sabah Convention Bureau and Singapore Tourism Board, and the rest of the world.

Captivating content

The Meetings Show’s education programme features an exciting lineup that will deliver practical takeaways for all who attend. It's split across four key themes: INFORM - INSPIRE - INNOVATE - IMPACT, with a stellar lineup of expert speakers covering topics including event security, AI, inclusivity, wellness, experiential design, contract negotiation, sustainability and legacy.

Sessions will be introduced by graduates of the atex Young Host Academy - Amba Karsondas from Yoti, Becky Bates from BH&P and Mathilde Gerritsma from Pagoda
Projects. The three were selected following a five-week journey to becoming an emcee and will host with support from atex’s Samme Allen, Shonali Devereaux and Lisa Moore.

Collaborative communities

Event industry communities, associations and media will also be present at the show, including the Meetings Industry Association (mia), The Delegate Wranglers, Meetings & Events Support Association (MESA), M&IT, micebook and more.

The MESA Pavilion will feature its community of technology and event suppliers as well as a range of educational campfires where you can find out more about technology and events innovations, ideas and tips. Meanwhile, a new visual identity reinforcing the positioning of the mia will be revealed at the show.

New features

New for this year, Go! Running Tours will be offering guided running and brisk walking tours for attendees, before The Meetings Show opens on 20 June. It's a great opportunity for visitors to see some sights of the city and get the energy pumping ahead of a day of meetings and networking.

Thanks to a collaboration between creator Paradigm and partners isla, The Bulb, Informa and The Meetings Show, a prototype of the innovative reusable zero waste stand will be revealed to the world’s meetings and events community exclusively at the show (stand A41).
