Meet last years' winner: 


"The Future of Meetings was a great way of bringing together a curated bunch of event tech companies. These sorts of exhibitions can be pretty pricey for us younger companies, so it was brilliant to have such an affordable yet well thought out way of taking part in the show. Very worthwhile, and the MDI team were super useful in helping us to get the most out of the show."

Rebecca Tobi, Glisser

“Throughout the event we had a lot of productive meetings both pre-booked and with buyers who came by our stand. Exhibiting at the Future of Meetings section, alongside the other great event tech start-ups, is a great experience and I’d highly recommend it!”

Fredrik Hoel, EventEye
