"It’s been really, really positive. It’s always been a great show for us and it’s about the quality of buyers here. It always has been. There’s a really good hosted buyer program. We got actively involved in that this year and welcomed some buyers over from likes of Brussels, which is an increasing market for us. The Meetings Show been very supportive of that, so its something we will probably be looking at again". Sheila Geary, Visit Belfast
"It has been brilliant. We’ve had very, very good inquiries and we are celebrating because today we picked one up for four thousand people in 2019. I think all the contacts, the networking, the socialising has just been perfect". Ines Lebaek, Business Events, Denmark
"We have had a fabulous couple of days. The show has been brilliant for us. In day one and day two alone we achieved over a million pounds’ worth of enquiries from high quality hosted buyers and visitors. It’s been an amazing event for us and the best Meeting Show that we’ve had to date". Jackie Boughton, Barbican

"Each year since the The Meetings Show began it has brought the best buyers and the best events. It’s well organised with a range of good people coming along to the stand. We’ve got a lot of business here at the show - about half a million pounds of enquiries so far. It’s something we’ll continue for the foreseeable future". Andrew Woods, Millennium and Copthorne
"The show has been excellent – we’ve seen a lot of people and had great conversations both with the supplier and the buyer base. It has facilitated some great follow-up. In fact, yesterday I met three agents from the UK I’ve never even heard of, which is what the show does. Being here has been a brilliant investment in time". Chetan Shah, MICEBOOK
