The Meetings Show took place on Wednesday 26 and Thursday 27 June, with record numbers recorded across the board. More than 5,000 meetings and events professionals attended the show, with pre-audit figures reporting a combined visitor and exhibitor total of 5,214.
Visitor attendance was 11% higher than in 2018, including over 900 hosted buyers, and the number of visitors attending for both days of the show rather than just one was up by 14%.
The show has also reported its highest ever number of pre-scheduled appointments between hosted buyers and exhibitors at 12,077.
Group event director David Chapple said: “I am over the moon with how well the event has gone this year. The show has become an integral part of the UK inbound and outbound meetings industry, bringing together professionals from around the world to meet, learn, network and do business. Being at the heart of the industry, we are in a unique position to address the challenges it faces and offer support through a first-class education programme and knowledge exchange, and feedback on the show floor was overwhelmingly positive.”
‘Signature’ had a great time at the show and thank all those that took the time to meet with us.
The Meetings Show 2020 will take place on Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 June and we hope to see you there!
