Hosted buyer diary to deliver 10,000+ appointments at The Meetings Show

The hosted buyer diary for The Meetings Show has gone live, allowing buyers to schedule appointments with exhibitors of their choice.

The hosted buyer programme, which is the cornerstone of the event, allows buyers to choose appointments with exhibitors that are of genuine interest and need to their business. The opening of the online diary marks a significant moment in the event’s progress as buyers start to network, plan time together and prepare for the show in July.

The Meetings Show’s Event Director, Steve Knight, commented: "Last year’s event saw more than 6,500 face to face meetings between exhibitors and buyers – this year we are aiming for more than 10,000. The opening of the hosted buyer diary is a really exciting moment in the life-cycle of our event, and we are already seeing activity online. It provides buyers and exhibitors with their initial means of contact and really allows them to start building relationships in the run up to the show. Our focus is to create an environment where attendees can get the most out of their time, whether it be developing relationships with potential business partners or learning from the highest quality educators, the diary is an integral part of that process.”

Qualified hosted buyers will benefit from the freedom to choose meetings with the exhibitors who are right for their business; a personalised and funded travel experience; bed and breakfast at a 4/5*hotel; transportation to Olympia from host hotels and networking venues; a choice of hosted buyer lounges; as well as a range of high quality networking events and education sessions.
